One of the most important aspects of family law is to look to the future. It is also one of the most difficult aspects of family law for the client. We understand that you are facing an emotional ordeal and may be unable to imagine the future. We help clients understand that this is just one period in their lives, albeit a difficult one. With our help, you will find a solution that allows you to move forward.
Families continue to change after the divorce and custody cases are settled. Looking ahead and anticipating future changes can help families create parenting plans that address the issues of growing children. This can prevent disputes and the need for modification of existing agreements. In all cases, we strive for durable and acceptable resolutions that are appropriate for each party.
We work hard to resolve cases cost-effectively. We will discuss your budget and the proposed expenses upfront.
Welcome To Avery & Upton, Where We Treat Clients Like Family
As a family firm, father-daughter team Bruce Avery and Prudence Upton are joined by associates Suzanne Ryan and Christy Zlatkus. We treat our clients like members of the family, too. Since 1993, the firm has provided family law representation to traditional and nontraditional families in Maryland and worldwide. We have represented people on every continent except Antarctica.
At Avery & Upton, we work on cases as a team. Our attorneys are trained mediators and negotiators. Mr. Avery is also a collaborative practice lawyer and family law-specific mediator. Ms. Upton is a tough, skilled trial lawyer. Regardless of the dispute resolution method we employ, we approach each case with the philosophy that the reasonable party has a better chance of achieving his or her goals. In family law, extreme positions, including the attitude toward the other party or parent, are less likely to produce favorable results.
