Paley Rothman’s family law attorneys represent individuals in a variety of domestic relations matters, including pre-marital agreements, divorce and separation, child custody, child support modification, family financial planning, enforcement of court orders and agreements, and guardianships. Our practice covers the full spectrum of family law issues, from the most complex cases to relatively simple uncontested matters.
We routinely handle cases that require the valuation and division of business interests, real estate, stock options and other types of assets. Our family law attorneys work closely with accountants, valuation experts and financial planners to ensure that our clients’ needs are met.
As a critical complement to their legal skills and knowledge of the law, our attorneys understand the personal nature of each family law case and the difficult changes that take place in the lives of our clients and their families. As we work to obtain the best possible results for those we represent, we remain sensitive to the needs of all family members involved.
Glenn Cooper, Carlos Lastra, and Tracey Coates have received recognition from Maryland and Washington D.C. Super Lawyers and from such publications as Bethesda Magazine and Washingtonian Magazine. As a result of these accolades, our attorneys are frequently invited to deliver lectures and write articles related to emerging family law topics.
In light of the increasing complexity of family law matters, our clients benefit from the breadth of experience of the attorneys in Paley Rothman’s related practice areas. A family law case may have overlapping issues concerning real estate, businesses, pensions, bankruptcy or other tax and estate planning matters. Our family law attorneys routinely consult with their partners to ensure that our clients receive quality and experienced representation in all facets of their case.
We also prosecute or defend our family law clients’ rights on appeal. Our attorneys have established an impressive track record of success in protecting our clients’ interests through the appellate process (see also Appellate Practice Group).
