Great Lawyer!
Alicia R. Lucero won both of my custody trials for me. My Limited Divorce in 2014 and Absolute Divorce in 2017. She went up against a medical doctor twice and won both times. I was also awarded child support. Ms. Lucero is an incredible and knowledgeable attorney. She is definitely a fighter and will not give up on you. Thank you once again Alicia for everything!

Alicia is a very competent lawyer
I reached out to many lawyers about my case and she was the only confident enough to take on my case. She’s truly cares about her clients and is very professional. She will take the time to explain what is important and does not waste your time. She won my case by the way.

Hardworking attorney
Alicia was great with my case. I had a mess of a custody case and she handled it very professionally and the best she could. She took extra time out of the office to go over details of my case. She actually cared about me and my results. I did get exactly the results I wanted and I would recommend her to anyone going through a custody battle.

Child Modification
Ms. Lucero was HIGHY recommended by the Montgomery County Circuit Court to me when I was attempting to modify my child support. As with any case the are issues between parties and Ms. Lucero always kept me in the loop and was very gracious in allowing me to may payments to her throughout this process. In my case I was in the Army and stationed in Texas so I had to fly to MD for my initial hearing. From that point on she stated that she did not see why I had to fly there for this simple hearing and she would and she would be dealing with the plaintiff out of court. This saved me thousand of dollars in funds. Ms. Lucero was very upfront with my case as she never hide the truth from me as to what she was doing and what she believed should be done but the decision was mine to make. She gave me courses of actions to pursue. I am thankful I had the opportunity of being her client. I will be contacting her In January of next year for assistance to stop child support for a emancipated minor. She was very helpful, kind, honest and bottom line up front kind of lawyer. May times you just need the raw truth to make decisions and I and thankful that she was their to help me though this.

Highly Recommended - Experienced and caring lawyer
Alicia Lucero represented me during my divorce. She was the strong advocate I needed while going through what turned out to be a very contentious case. Alicia's counsel was always practical and realistic and focused on reaching the best possible outcome given the variables of the case. She negotiated a fair settlement with alimony and half of my ex-husband’s retirement fund. Alicia was very responsive, getting back to me within a couple of hours even when I called her late in the day or on weekends. She was very professional and well prepared. Her fee was also extremely fair.

Amazing!!!!!!
Alicia is a unique, dedicated, hard working professional. With her hard work she help us win an emergency custody hearing and won every hearing after that. She always made us feel like her number one priority. She's the type of lawyer that will sacrifice a day off to take care the needs of her clients. We are extremely happy with her performance and we couldn't ask for more. She got my husband's kids back!!!! we are so thankful and blessed we found her.

Extraordinary attorney! Highly Recommended!!
Ms. Lucero has been my attorney for several Family Cases I have had during the past 3 years. I was blessed to have been given her number after being frighten and worried about a case that was filed with a trial date just a few weeks around the corner, in which I had no knowledge of. Being unsure of signing a retainer with her, Ms. Lucero was very clear and straight forward about the possibility of the outcome. She was also confident enough to transmit to a concern parent about the job she would hold; the honesty of the case and what could be the outcome and not just "painting the flowers in pink” to you, but also the time she would put in, the crucial feedback communications, the flexibility she was willing to have and most important she would only do what the client tells her what to do. I knew then that she was the attorney that was for me, and not one of those hungry for cash, crooked, unprepared or uncaring about the case or the clients wishes. She gave the confidence that she could take up the challenge and explained the law and was reassuring that she would do the best to win it. Ms. Lucero demonstrated to be all that and more, my expectations of what an attorney should be like was not even remotely close as what she proved it should be at the end. Each case she gets she tries to spread them out sufficiently to be able to prepare, to be available to your needs, questions, comments, concerns and is a whole week of preparation before trial. Her flexibility, punctuality, dedication, research, honesty, recommendations, determination, organization are only half of the qualities she has proven every time and not only with ALL of my cases but others that i have recommended. Ms. Lucero is a phenomenal attorney whom I would recommend 100%+. It does not matter if she wins or loses the case; her efforts go all the way and she expects another round at it if necessary. I highly recommend her and guarantee that if GOD and she allow it; she will continue to be our (child and I) attorney.

Very good Family Law Attorney
I hired Alicia Raquel Lucero for my Family Law case in 2013. She was honest, diligent & hardworking. She was very accommodating for her clients. I felt that she is not that kind of Attorney who will run you a huge bill but she was very respectful of the time & her commitment. She gave me right advice all the time rather than running a prolonged trial. Hence, I recommend her highly.

My wife hired Alicia Lucero to handle an extremely complex family law case. We had dealt with several attorneys in the past, some of whom were competent attorneys who were nevertheless negligent in protecting her rights. These lawyers ranged from an attorney who was so incompetent and negligent that he had to be temporarily disbarred for his conduct, to a Maryland Superlawyer who conducted himself honorably and competently, yet still didn't measure up to Ms. Lucero's standards of diligence. Alicia Lucero was professional and gave us excellent advice, and yet wasn't above listening to us. She informed us, involved us, and worked with us intimately in crafting a legal strategy that was largely successful in a case where she didn't have adequate time to prepare, and was hamstrung by the failures of previous attorneys we had hired. Ms. Lucero was extremely knowledgeable, yet was secure enough to ask other colleagues for information and advice when she thought it appropriate to do so. This was a refreshing change from previous attorneys whose egos were so big that they felt that they had to maintain the illusion that they knew everything there was to know. Our case was very complex, and Ms. Lucero understood that, and put a lot of hard work into understanding those complexities - far more work than any other attorney we had worked with in the past. She was trustworthy, empathetic, kind and decent in every way, without losing any of her objectivity, which made a difficult situation much easier than it could have been. My wife and I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for an experienced, thorough, and professional attorney. Without her, we were at a serious disadvantage because the opposition's legal conduct was very aggressive. Upon retaining her, she made it her business to advocate strongly and effectively for our interests. As a result, our opposition hates her, but we love her!
