My Marital Property Practice

I represent men and women in all matters related to the equitable distribution of marital debts and assets. I will help you successfully divide all obligations and property, including real estate, personal property, bank accounts and investments, retirement funds and business assets.

Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia are not community property jurisdictions. As such, there is no automatic division of debts and assets. If you cannot come to an agreement regarding the distribution of property, the judge will decide, based on what the judge believes to be fair. When making this determination, the judge will take into account a number of factors set forth in statute.

When you hire me to handle a marital property dispute, I will conduct a thorough review of the facts and circumstances and give you an honest assessment of the likelihood of accomplishing your goals. I will only recommend you take legal action if I believe you have a realistic chance of success. If so, I will work closely with you and any experts, such as financial experts or forensic accountants, to put together the strongest case for you.
