The logical choice when facing unreasonable opposition.

With litigators who consistently produce favorable outcomes.

Litigation, or the court-based system, is one of the process choices available to those facing a divorce or other family law controversy. It is the logical choice when the opposing party is unreasonable or in denial, where there are mental health issues, where there are unique questions of law, or where negotiation or other dispute resolution processes have failed.

Effective, Highly Skilled Litigators

Our Family Law litigators appear frequently in the courts of the District of Columbia, Maryland, and Virginia and are respected by both judges and other attorneys. Efficient and skilled, we have a consistent record of achieving good outcomes for our clients in a cost-effective way.

If you choose or end up in the litigation process, our Family law litigators are skillful at providing support to our clients at every step of this difficult time in their lives. For example, if you are deposed or must testify at trial, we will thoroughly explain the process to you and prepare you to testify, so that you will be able to present yourself and your case in the best possible light.

Finding Opportunities to Settle Out of Court

At the same time that we prepare a case for trial, if appropriate for your case, we will continually seek out a window of opportunity to pursue settlement outside of court. One advantage to settling out of court is that certain goals can be accomplished in settlement that a judge does not have the power to order at the end of contested litigation. Settling out of court is also less costly.

For over 50 years, our Family Law litigators have been respected by their peers and recognized in the community for their vigorous representation and advocacy in the D.C., Maryland, and Virginia courts.
