Offit Kurman - The Better Way to Get on With Your Life

Experienced Counsel For All Kinds of Family Law Issues

Family law issues can have long-term impacts on those involved. Financial details can be intricate, and emotional elements can be paralyzing. Our goal is to get you a resolution that lets you focus on your life rather than the dissolution of your marriage, and gets you back on with your life sooner rather than later.

Our Family Law Group is ready to handle family law matters of every kind, from non-litigated, less involved matters to the most complex, sophisticated matters.  Our 22 Family Law attorneys in Maryland, Virginia, the District of Columbia, Pennsylvania, New York, and North Carolina will customize an approach that fits the needs of your particular matter. Our attorneys are admitted to the bar in various state and federal courts, and also engage in the international practice of law.

We have highly skilled, experienced attorneys who hold prestigious fellowships in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. The depth of our many practice areas allows us to work seamlessly with seasoned members of our firm on tax, estate and trust, business, immigration, bankruptcy, labor and employment, education, and other issues which come up in family law matters. Together, we help you extricate yourself from the marriage and plan for your and your children's future.
