Great Attorney
After a thorough search of the best lawyers in Howard County, Columbia, MD. I came across “The Oliver Leffler Law Firm” who I hired as representation in my legal case for Child Support Modification. I had Attorney Quint assigned to me. My first impression of her was she was friendly, warm, and approachable. It’s been along road, but with great support and coaching from Attorney Quint all has come to positive end. All I can say is, I would HIGHLY HIGLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND Attorney Quint any day to someone seeking the best results for Child support issues. She’s also very dedicated to her clients, a professional who is an expert in the field of Family Law. She’s not afraid to collaborate with her colleagues to formulate a strategic plan for absolute win win case. Attorney Gauri Bayoumi who also worked on my case was phenomenal. I met her towards the end of my case, and she is also an excellent attorney. She’s very knowledgeable. With Attorney Bayoumi’ s extensive experience in Family Law, she worked hard with Attorney Quint to make sure we win this case. My first impression of her was “Wow, she’s also very approachable and friendly”. You want that in a legal team where you can relate but still, they are professional about their job. That always brings an ease When dealing with legal issues. She was a great asset in my case. I would HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY Recommend Attorney Bayoumi as well. When it got tough, Attorney Quint worked diligently in making sure all records were available needed to prove the case. Boy, she had a lot of things under her sleeve which was the icing on the case during trial. Not only did these two great attorney(s) showed up prepared for trial, Attorney Quint and Attorney Bayoumi were beyond amazing, flawless in in collaboration and teamworking trial. They worked hard to make sure my children receive what they are entitled to under the law. These two wonderful attorney(s) were just amaaaaaaazing. When they say Attorney Quint is rated “Top rated Family Law Attorney in Maryland”, believe it. She has earned it. Not a lot of attorney(s) are able to prove case where the Firm gets awarded attorney fees, but these two great attorneys pulled it off. Great job! What a great Law Firm to work with to achieve a great result. Oliver Leffler law Firm is simply the best! My #1 on the list for legal consultation. Kudos again to Attorney Quint and Bayoumi, we won the case and more….

Compassion, Understanding, Communication...Yes, Yes, Yes, and more
Gauri Bayoumi, Esq. and the staff at Weinberg and Schwartz were incredible and helpful as I navigated through an emotional minefield of a divorce. Ms. Bayoumi was kind, patient, and understanding of my needs, the needs of my children, and the resolution I wanted. With grace and compassion, Ms. Bayoumi guided me through this stressful time, with its emotional ups and downs. She was always available to answer all of my questions, from how to communicate with the ex to the process and procedures of the judicial system. It was generally less than 24 hours when I would hear back from her, often within hours of an email I sent. I felt seen and heard with the particulars of my case remembered as if I was her only client. She looked out for my financials when the ex decided to challenge the uncontested divorce-mutual consent, and the court ordered a full financial workup plus discovery by offering me guidance on what I could do to lessen the financial burden. I highly recommend Gauri Bayoumi, Esq., and the law firm of Weinberg and Schwartz for their compassion, understanding, flexibility, and communication. I look forward to working with her again on my estate planning.

Gauri with Custody Case
My lawyer helped me get the best deal possible in a difficult custody case. If you are a father that needs help protecting his children Gauri is the lawyer you need.

Phenomenal Experience....couldn't be happier!!!
I recently finalized my divorce with the help and guidance of Gauri Bayoumi and I don't think I could have found a better lawyer to help me navigate the process. Gauri is the most pleasant person to work with, which is extremely appreciated during such an emotional/stressful time in a person's life. Her responsiveness, thoroughness, and attention to detail were fantastic. Gauri was very candid and told me if/when I was being unreasonable or a pushover, which is critical in navigating a divorce. For anyone that chooses Gauri to represent them, you will be so pleased that you picked this superstar. My ex-wife and I have four amazing children and I feel like we were able to come to an agreement that truly put the kid's needs first!

Lawyer/Advisor/Therapist
Gauri was my divorce lawyer and a great one at that. She does not let things linger. She will tell you when she will get back to you and 9 out of 10 times it’s sooner. Not only does she work quickly but she advises you on pros and cons but still leaves decisions to you. She knows this time can be emotional for you and your feelings will be up and down but she is there for you every step of the way to keep you calm. These are some of the reasons my title of this review is Lawyer/Advisor/Therapist. If you are in need of a divorce lawyer I highly recommend Gauri.

Impeccable
Gauri made it possible for me to remain focused; she is clearly interested in doing what is best for her clients. At times, when I was exhausted and wanted to cave, Gauri was there to convince me to see the process through. She is bold and stood up against a well-known overly-aggressive and unreasonable attorney. Shark attorneys waste unnecessary time and energy on both sides of a divorce, Gauri is the opposite she leads with knowledge to do what is equitable and is not interested in wasting people's time. We need more authentic people in the divorce business. I highly recommend her services.

Dr. .........Ph.D., CRC
Ms. Bayoumi has been my legal representative upon my decision to proceed with permanent dissolution from an 8-year marriage. Gauri soon became more than a legal representative but also what we have at times lost the skills, to be my counsel. I am a very difficult person to deal with, particularly when dealing with a difficult situation such as a divorce procedure, certainly a one lifetime event. In multiple times Ms. Bayoumi was there to respond to my questions but also with the attention and personal skill to calm me down and help me to focus on the legal aspects at hand. Due to this skill and attention to me as a person, with my own personal failings and all, she was able to complete the dissolution process in a very timely and painful manner. I will always remember, not the actual divorce process, but that it was as painless as I imagine it could be. As result of this established trust, I have asked Gauri to be there for me for any other eventuality that I may face in the future. Sincerely, Carlos A. L. Encinas, Ph., D.

Highly Professional & Knowledgeable
Weingberg and Schwartz, LLC is an excellent practice. I highly recommend Marni Schwartz and her associate Gauri Bayoumi. I hired Marni and Gauri for my recent divorce. Their knowledge of the law is worth every penny. At times my case became complicated due to my ex-husband’s narcissistic personality and unethical actions coupled by opposing counsel’s lack of understanding of Maryland law and utter disorganization. Marni and Gauri were able to shut them down at every turn. The strategic and creative manner that these lawyers handled my case was nothing short of brilliant, and their focus on my best interests was unwavering throughout the entire process. They are highly intelligent, super thorough and extremely caring—a complete package that is hard to come by. I also commend and applaud the entire office staff at Weinberg and Schwartz. They were always up to speed on my case and extremely helpful when I had questions. They were a pleasure to work with during this entire process.

I loved working with Gauri. She helped me through the process of getting a divorce and was very efficient. She explained every step along the way and answered all my questions and concerns. The entire process from start to finish took less than a year to get through. I would highly recommend!

Excellent Divorce Attorney
Lets face it, no one gets married to get divorced. So when you want to get divorced, you want it quick, painless, direct, and without hassle. From the moment I met Gauri she checked all those blocks and within 2 months I had a signed sealed and settled divorced agreement. Gauri walked me through each step of the process and she made sure I was aware of the documents and legal language that I was signing. I did sob through court and was very emotional because the end of my happily ever after was sealed close, Gauri called me immediately following and let me know it was ok and I can move forward now with my life. I am so thankful for the services of Ms. Bayoumi.

Excellent Attorney
I reached out to Weinberg & Schwartz and specifically requested for Gauri Bayoumi given her credentials and experience working with cross-cultural clients. During my first consultation, she took her time to thoroughly understand my situation and presented me with clear next steps. She was transparent about the challenges that I may face during COVID especially with the court system and I truly appreciated the honesty as It helped me set realistic expectations. Her office was thorough with all the documentation and timely updates and I faced no issues whatsoever through out the divorce proceeding. Divorce is a life changing event and it is important to choose the right attorney to represent you, I am glad with my decision to go with Gauri Bayoumi during this challenging phase of my life. God Bless!

Such a God Send
Gauri Bayoumi of Weinberg and Schwartz has been a God send. This woman is the super hero of attorneys, talented, very educated in law and extremely well spoken. In my eyes, Gauri Bayoumi is the expert in her field. She's so good she has found all the mistakes from my previous attorney! I would highly recommend her and have to everyone I have known who needs help. Her ability to discern law, explain it to me,the lay person, and have patience when I couldn't was outstanding. Sometimes life hands us lemons, but Gauri Bayoumi makes it all into lemon shots!

Helped make my divorce as simple as possible.
In just a few short months, she helped prepare my separation agreement, got everything signed, and finalized my divorce. She worked efficiently and kept the fees to a minimum. She was also very responsive to my emails.

Wonderful person, amazing attorney
I am so unbelievably grateful to have met Mrs. Bayoumi! I had worked previously with 2 other attorneys on my case., and Mrs. Bayoumi was warm, kind, and a breath of fresh air. She worked hard with me to get my ex to settle on a custody arrangement. Sadly, he was not willing to compromise, and Mrs. Bayoumi supported me through my decision to go to trial. She showed her knowledge of family law every step of the way, especially during the actual trial itself, and had quite a bit of my exes “evidence” dismissed. I highly recommend her services, and can’t begin to express my gratitude!

Awesome experience
I highly recommend Gauri Bayoumi. She was smart, gave me wonderful advice and had great empathy. She approached everything with my best interest in mind. I felt safe having her represent me in court. I used Ms. Bayoumi a couple years later to put together my prenupital agreement and she again was phenomenal. She met a very tight timeline with poise and kindness. I cannot recommend her enough.

Custody and Child Support
I will be forever grateful to Mrs. Gauri Bayoumi, because over the past year while working on my Custody and Child Support case she was nothing short of amazing. Mrs. Bayoumi's professionalism, responsiveness, and attentiveness to my situation made me feel extremely comfortable and confident with the process and the overall outcome of my case. The strategic manner in which she presented evidence during the trial to how she called witnesses to testify, showed me I was working with a seasoned attorney. Prior to even going to trial Mrs. Bayoumi made many attempts, on my behalf, to offer a settlement to the opposing side to alleviate the need for trial. As tough as this situation was for me, working through it with Mrs. Bayoumi was the only reason it turned out as well as it did. If I ever need legal representation again I will certainly contact Mrs. Gauri Bayoumi!
