Summary

I began practicing law in 1996. Since then, I have helped many clients in Maryland and the District of Columbia with their family law issues, including high-conflict divorces, custody cases involving special needs children, and premarital and postmarital agreements. I am an experienced litigator, but is also a trained Collaborative practitioner and trained mediator.

For the last twelve years I have also represented numerous students and families in education matters, including school discipline in public and private schools, and campus sexual assault, Title IX cases and academic misconduct cases at the college level.

- Current
I seek cost-effective, practical solutions for my clients while aggressively advocating on their behalf. While I have significant experience in litigation, I also practice Collaborative Law and recommend this as an option for clients who want to resolve their disputes without litigation. I also mediate and arbitrate family cases. I handle high asset and high income marital settlements; prenuptial and postnuptial agreements; custody, custody modification and relocation; child support; child support for adult disabled children; child support arrearage and contempt; child support modification; alimony; alimony arrearage and contempt; alimony modification; same-sex marriage and separation; domestic violence and protective orders. In my Education Law practice I represent parents and students in Montgomery County, Baltimore County and Howard County Public School cases as well as private schools in those locations. I can meet clients at my office in Bethesda, as well as the Offit Kurman offices in Baltimore and Columbia/Maple Lawn.
