She’s is very dedicated and will fight for what’s most important to you. Marie was my attorney during my child custody case, she was by my side through the entire case any question I had was answered with confidence quickly. When I need extra clarification she was there to help me understand each step of the way. I came out with what was best for my minor child and couldn’t be more happy with the services provided by Marie and her firm.

Marie did what no one else could have....she saved my life. I can not review this attorney without it being personal. Marie is an excellent lawyer. She is courteous, knowledgeable, professional, helpful and she is now a friend. Marie was empathetic to my tantrums, crying fits, need to be heard, and my depression throughout a very difficult case. She never waivered. She saw it through to completion, and kept me informed the entire time. When you think things are hopeless and feel like throwing in the towela....Marie will shine like a light.

Why it is a Good Idea to Avoid Probate in Maryland
Legal Answers
56 Questions Answered
Q. Should I start the process of emancipation?
A: Emancipation is a very personal thing and should not be taken lightly. There are certain barriers to emancipation such as the need to have a prior child custody case. If you are being abused and/or neglected and you are a minor, it is a good idea to reach out to your local Department of Social Services to seek their assistance with resolving your situation.
Q. Can I use audio recordings in a case against someone?
A: Yes, Maryland is a two-party consent state and as a result, both parties must consent to the recording. However, in the case of a voicemail, there is no reasonable expectation of privacy and that can be used in court since it is not an illegal recording.
Q. Looking at going to a Tech school to get certified so I can get a better job, what happens with my child support?
A: In such a situation, your child support may be recalculated. However, the other party or you would need to initiate a modification.
