People decide to leave a marriage when the second-most impossible choice is to stay. 

The realization that a divorce is inevitable is an incredibly difficult prospect to face, whether you are the spouse initiating it or not. It can be a time of ceaseless confusion, conflicting emotions, and feels intensely overwhelming. 

When faced with one of the most trying transitions you will ever make, you need an ally and advocate by your side. Whether prompted by a revelation, long-term contemplation, or a choice made by your spouse without your agreement, you need clarity to replace confusion, calm to quell the chaos, and a focus to help you move forward. 

We see clients every single day who are grappling with these weighty challenges. And regardless of their unique circumstances, we always start at the same place, with a guiding question that is foundational to how we practice family law: what do you want your new life to be? From there, everything we do is focused on the outcomes that put the best interests of you and your children first. 

When this is behind you, we want you to feel whole again, satisfied with the outcome, and fully positioned to move forward in your new life.

As divorce attorneys, we support our clients in suburban Maryland and Washington DC by tamping down the conflict. We present thoughtful solutions that are grounded in negotiation, considerate compromise, and reasoned collaboration, applying research-backed methods to support the well-being of your children. 

We also have a keen understanding of the financial implications of divorce on a family. We have the deep financial acumen and experience necessary to mitigate losses and preserve your long term financial picture, no matter how complex your assets and financial portfolio may be. 

We will do our best to keep your case out of court, believing this is often what is best for everyone involved. But we are skilled and tenacious litigators when the circumstances do not allow for any other path forward.
