I retained the Forman Clothier Law Group to represent me in a divorce action. Because I had unwisely signed a separation agreement without seeking prior legal counsel I found myself in an untenable position in which the marital assets were to be divided unfairly; my wife was to get 80% and I just 20% of their value. Another law firm had declined to take my case feeling that that my case could not be successfully argued in court and my fate was sealed. Mr. Alan Forman, founder of the firm and an acclaimed trial lawyer, conducted an uptake interview with me. It was immediately clear to me that Mr. Forman was a compassionate man, sensitive to my plight. He told me that the fight would be against the odds but agreed to work my case. During the course of the following months, his daughter, Jenna Forman Clothier became my primary advocate in the Montgomery County court system. I found her to be an enthusiastic and very capable attorney, quite willing to consider her father's suggestions and trial experience. Her court appearances were conducted with confidence and competence well beyond what might be expected from a relatively newly licensed attorney. The result was that I got a settlement more generous than the separation agreement provided by almost $60,000.
If I were pressed to find an area where Jenna might improve her skills I would suggest she manage her time more effectively. There were several instances in which she asked me to compile information and respond to legal requirements in "the eleventh hour". We didn't miss any deadlines, but the stress of complying at the last minute was uncomfortable for all of us.
Should I need Maryland legal representation in the future, I know exactly where to go! Thank you, Jenna Forman Clothier. Your Dad can be justifiably proud of you!
