In recent years, he has been listed among Baltimore & Washington, D.C.'s Top Attorneys,  Maryland  Super  Lawyers,  Best  Lawyers  in America as well as Top 1OO Attorneys in the State of Maryland.

He has argued more than 70 cases before the Maryland Court of Appeals and Court of Special Appeals, and on seven occasions, those cases became reported decisions, pored over by judges and lawyers searching for precedent.


Why does my experience matter?

Stephen has more than forty years of experience representing clients in family law matters in Maryland. He is knowledgeable and well-respected by his colleagues and the courts. When walking into a courtroom, with the future of your children and/or your assets at stake, you will want an attorney with Stephen's reputation and experience by your side, zealously representing your interests.

I believe in what I do.

Both of Stephen's parents were members of the Maryland Bar as are his sister and youngest daughter. The tradition of assisting others is strong in his family. He believes that there is no greater good than helping others achieve positive changes in their lives and in the lives of their children.

The most important thing to remember…

The first thing that is lost when people separate is trust. We are new to you and have to earn your trust. We will.

The work we do is important and satisfying. Family law is fraught with intensity and emotion, but what we provide for our clients is compassion, knowledge and clarity.
