Family

The practice of family law requires a comprehensive understanding of the law as well as objectivity and sensitivity. Gordon Feinblatt has one of the most respected family law practices in the State.

Our Family Practice works as part of the Private Client Services Team to resolve personal and financial issues associated with separation and divorce. We have extensive experience in financial analysis associated with family law matters. Lawyers in the Family Practice are experienced negotiators and mediators.

Led by Sheila K. Sachs, who has focused in the practice of family law for more than 40 years, clients are assisted in all phases of litigation, arbitration, mediation and settlement of conflicts arising when families divide, including the equitable distribution of marital property, alimony, custody, child support and related proceedings. Our Family Practice also includes adoption, guardianship and change of name. We have significant experience regarding the valuation and distribution of assets, including businesses, retirement plans, pension plans, differed compensation plans and health insurance benefits. To avoid conflict, issues are sometimes best addressed in pre-marital or post-marital agreements.

Jerrold A. Thrope, Chairman of the Litigation Team, has been named by The Best Lawyers in America as the 2017 “Family Law Lawyer of the Year” in Baltimore. The Family Law Team is supported by other leading attorneys in the Firm regarding tax, real estate, corporate and securities issues.
