About Me

I have been practicing family law for over 30 years, and have helped over 3,000 people through this often difficult process.  I handle all aspects of separation and divorce, including mediation, negotiations and litigation of simple and complex cases.  I work on child custody, visitation and child support cases, divorces involving significant marital assets and division of property and pensions, alimony, and even pet visitation.  My approach is to work hard to solve your problems, but not necessarily to "punish" the other side.  I want you to finish the process knowing that the outcome was "fair" and you dealt with things "honorably". 


My hourly rates are at the high end for Frederick County, because of my experience and reputation.  However, my experience and knowledge of the law allows me to identify and skip the "garbage".  Our office is also high automated and efficient, so that our final bill is ususally much lower than the other attorney's,   even though he charges less per hour than I do. 


By the way, my "suspension" in D.C. means that I stopped taking cases there 30 years ago -  perhaps a better word would be that I withdrew from practice there....  I had no disciplinary actions taken that would have resulted in a "suspension".
