I grew up in rural Tennessee, and my first career was in technology. I moved to Maryland to take a job at the University of Maryland College Park. I realized that I preferred working with people instead of computers and went to law school. After law school, life had another challenge for me and I had a battle with cancer. I was able to survive and thrive and I opened Apol Law LLC in 2013. My goal is to support people through difficult legal issues with compassion and dignity.

Outstanding and Efficient Divorce Lawyer
I was referred to Tasnima through a friend of mine. After doing an initial consultation, I immediately felt comfortable with her approach and relieved that she understood my situation and that she was able to help with the least amount of red tape that can occur in a typical divorce. She provided all of the details up front, and she responded to calls and emails promptly whenever I had questions or concerns throughout the process. Tasnima walked me through all of the paperwork and arranged for a meeting with the Master, who was very down-to-Earth and informal. And Tasnima followed up after the hearing was completed to ensure that I received all of the copies of the documentation and to see if there were any other questions. I would highly recommend Tasnima for anyone with legal need for the assistance of an attorney.

Professional, excellent lawyer
Ms. Apol is extremely complainant and respectful. She made sure I was informed and walked me though a very nasty divorce. She gave me options and thoroughly discussed each step. I would not hesitate to recommend her!

Profoundly grateful for Tasnima Apol of Apol Law.
I am forever deeply and profoundly grateful for Tasnima Apol of Apol Law. Because of her knowledge and insight, she found a solution I never would have thought possible. She is professional and ethical, yet her compassion is a gift. She held my hand, cried with me, and laughed at times. I cannot thank her enough.

great experience
I was in the middle of a messy divorce and custody battle. I had a previous lawyer drop me as a client when they thought I was out of money. I was refereed to Ms. Apol by a 3rd party. When I met Ms. Apol I was tired, skeptical, and felt beaten down by the whole divorce process. Ms. Apol jumped into immediate action. She told me exactly what she needed from me and what she need me to do. She had worked many cases with my Ex's attorney so that helped a lot too. I understand that this is what lawyers do for a living, and it is their profession, but when dealing with such an important and emotional issue like kids I just wanted a lawyer I felt understood how important the custody issue was for me, and that would "fight" for me. Ms. Apol more then exceeded those expectations. She was very prompt with communication, and a true professional. I highly highly recommend Ms. Apol and her firm for anyone going through a divorce and/or any family court issue. They are amazing.

Highly Recommended!
Ms. Apol was the first attorney I contacted regarding my impending divorce, and after speaking with her, I knew that I would have to look no further. I had found a lawyer who I could trust completely and with whom I felt thoroughly comfortable with. Since then we have met face to face and Ms. Apol has proved to be an invaluable confidant who will look out for my best interest. Her input and advice are indispensable to me. She is knowledgeable, professional, genuine and kind, and has helped me negotiate the difficult process of divorce with integrity and confidence. I cannot recommend her highly enough!

She's good to have on your side
Extremely knowledgeable of the law. She made sure I knew what to expect throughout the process and never gave me false expectations. I wouldn't have survived it without her.

Excellent attorney!
Mrs. Apol was wonderful to work with, during a not so wonderful time in my life. She was very professional and supportive. She took time to explain everything thoroughly. I always knew what to expect, and how to be prepared. She was also very quick with responses. I would refer anyone who needs an attorney to Mrs. Apol! I have a feeling that "A", who wrote a review stating the opposite of all the rest was possibly on the other side of the courtroom from Mrs. Apol.

Tasnima was very helpful to my case she gave me lots of advice and spent time explaining and going over things with me with just the little bit of notice that I gave her. She jump right in and took control of my case that I did not have to worry about anything anymore.

Pleased with my experience
I was seeking a divorce and Attorney Apol was referred to me through my job's legal plan. I left a message for her and she was prompt in getting back to me. I had heard so many horror stories from other people about their lawyers. However I can say that I found Attorney Apol to be easy to work with and trustworthy. My case probably didn't make her rich, but I felt that she valued me as a client just as much as anyone else. She was a good listener and we worked as a team. She came up with a great game plan when my ex-husband wasn't cooperating. I found her to be consistently personable, but professional, fair and timely.

I am so grateful that Tasmania Apol was available to take my case. A friend of the family recommend me to her and she was amazing very informative, kind, great personality, and very professional. I was unfamiliar with how the court process works for child custody or child support and Mrs. Apol kept me well informed. I am so appreciative because she was so helpful I couldnt have asked for a better lawyer.

Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"In family law, it's always better to have a productive working relationship with opposing counsel. This benefits the parties, always. I have always found Tasnima to be pleasant, kind and prepared. She's a pleasure to work with."
Family Attorney | Sep 30
Relationship: Opposing Counsel on matter
"It is always a pleasure to have Tasnima as opposing counsel, as I know she will provide her clients with sound legal advice while looking at the bigger picture to try and resolve the matter without the need of a contentious litigation."
Family Attorney | Sep 06
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"I have known and collaborated with Tasnima for four years, and she is outstanding among other lawyers for her ethical, intelligent and pragmatic approach to solving client problems. Although she is fully capable as a litigator and trial attorney, I trust that she can be most effective in counseling a client toward a negotiated marital settlement and custody agreement to minimize cost and strife. Since she practices in a distant county I am glad to refer cases to her to serve clients in a cost-effective manner."
Family Attorney | Apr 17

"I endorse this lawyer. She is bright, conscientious, and professional. She cares about her clients and works hard to resolve matters efficiently."
