Peaceful Resolution or Litigation? We're Good at Both

We know that divorce or custody litigation can be expensive and can leave scars on all participants — including the children. If the other party has made a reasonable offer for dividing assets and providing financial support, he encourages prompt mediation to work out the details. On the other hand, if you are in a position to fight or need to because the other spouse is unreasonable, our attorneys are formidable trial lawyers with 40 combined years of courtroom experience.

We have experience in dividing complex marital estates, including retirement funds, the family home and real estate, closely held businesses, investments and other assets.

We also can give clients a good idea of how a judge will rule regarding primary custody, shared custody (50/50 parenting time) or sole custody, as well as legal custody (decisions about the health, education and upbringing of the child). At Baroody & O'Toole we are believers in mediation to resolve matters civilly, particularly when parents will both continue an active role.

To discuss your pending or ongoing divorce or custody matter, contact our Baltimore office to arrange an initial consultation. We are committed to compassionate, cost-effective and forward-looking resolutions in the best interests of our clients.
