Next to death, divorce is the most stressful event in most people's lives.  I know, I've been there.  What most people need during this time of transition and turmoil is a divorce lawyer with a calm head, to provide firm support, and the information about families and Maryland law necessary to make decisions concerning their future.  Unfortunately, most people have most of these things in short supply during divorce, and they need someone who can provide guidance, and help them create acceptable solutions so they can attain closure with the past and move forward with their lives in a productive and healthy way, for themselves and their children.  Whether by collaborative divorce, mediation, negotiation, or litigation, as a Maryland divorce lawyer, I help individuals make the decisions that will restructure their family and their lives.
