Areas of Practice

Professional representation for Maryland families

I am dedicated to providing effective legal representation to both clients and their loved ones in cases related to:
  • Family law — If you need assistance with a family law matter, including prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, my firm has the experience and compassion to assist you. I also help clients seek orders of protection when they have been threatened with abuse from a spouse or family member.
  • Divorce and legal separation — I represent clients in a range of divorce matters, including uncontested divorce and divorce mediation, which offers more privacy than litigation. While Maryland law does not allow for legal separation, I can assist with limited divorce.
  • Child custody and support — In Maryland, if parents cannot decide on their own who is best suited to have custody of their children, a court will decide on either sole or shared legal or physical custody, with visitation rights possible for the noncustodial parent. Child support may also be ordered by the court when parents can’t agree on an amount. I will make sure your parental rights are maintained throughout the process.
  • Criminal defense — I provide knowledgeable representation for individuals facing criminal allegations like domestic violence, DUIs, and traffic violations. If you are being charged with any of these offenses, we can explore your options to obtain the best result possible.
  • Real estate — Whether the property you’re buying or selling is residential or commercial, it is crucial to protect your rights and investment in a real estate transaction. My firm has significant experience with deeds, closings, real estate sales contracts, and more.
When providing help in any of these areas, I understand that your welfare and that of your loved ones is paramount. I will work diligently to find the best possible result for whatever legal issue you face.
