You Need Supportive, Aggressive Representation

Navigating a divorce can be a life-altering and gut-wrenching experience, even if you and your spouse can maintain civility. With the magnitude of decisions you must make and the unfamiliarity of the court system, having an attorney who can provide emotional support during this process is crucial. At the Law Offices of Ellen L. Lee, our founding attorney draws on her background in psychology and counseling to offer you the support you need. However, we are not afraid to be tough and aggressive when advocating for your interests.

The Advantage of an Effective Divorce Lawyer

An exceptional divorce attorney goes beyond handling paperwork. Our divorce law firm guides clients through every stage of the process, including mediation, settlement negotiations, and trial, if necessary. You need a lawyer who will fiercely advocate for your interests concerning matters like property division, spousal support, child custody, and child support. Having a lawyer who listens to your concerns and addresses them with compassion is equally important.

Finding the Right Lawyer

Choosing the right lawyer to handle your divorce is a significant decision. You will be relying on this attorney to guide you through what can be an emotional and challenging event in your life. Consider the following factors when selecting a divorce lawyer in Maryland:

  • Experience: Has the lawyer handled cases similar to yours? Have they represented clients through all stages of the process, including trial? Do they have experience with a range of family law issues?
  • Track record: Have previous clients had positive experiences with the attorney?
  • Accessibility: Will you be able to easily reach your attorney when needed? Will they promptly respond to your calls, emails, and letters?
  • Involvement: Will you primarily communicate with the divorce attorney directly or with paralegals and legal assistants?
  • Reputation: Is the lawyer well-known and respected among other divorce lawyers in Maryland?
