About our Middletown, MD: office

Attorney Jorgensen established his law office in a renovated Civil War parish and hospital in Middletown, Maryland in 1979. Since then, he has helped hundreds of citizens who are facing unfair and ruthless legal actions to repair and remedy their lives.

Domestic problems present an especially distressing situation for its victims. Whether you are facing divorce, separation, custody or problems with alimony or child support, you want the attorney handling your legal needs to be fully experienced in family law in both trial and appeals courts, and capable of protecting your interests.

“Child custody and visitation decisions are among the most serious and complex decisions a court must make, with grave implications for all parties.”1

The proper starting point for legal analysis when the State involves itself in family relations is the fundamental constitutional rights of a parent. Certain fundamental rights are protected under the U.S. Constitution, and among those rights are a parent’s Fourteenth Amendment liberty interest in raising his or her children as he or she sees fit, without undue interference by the State.2

The identification and protection of fundamental rights is an enduring part of the judicial duty to interpret the Constitution.... [I]t requires courts to exercise reasoned judgment in identifying interests of the person so fundamental that the State must accord them its respect.3

Because a parent’s right to his or her child is fundamental, a custody decision—including findings of facts and any exercise of judicial discretion—must withstand strict scrutiny upon review. The parent-child relationship “cannot be taken away unless clearly justified.”4

Attorney Jorgensen’s formula for success is simple – he wuk provide you with straightforward, compassionate, and competent representation. His reputation with the public and the courts is built on his dedication, compassion, and experience. He works closely with both his clients and with other specialists to help his clients and their loved ones succeed in whatever legal challenges that they are facing.

Whether your case requires vigorous negotiation, mediation, or assertive representation at trial or an appeal after a trial, Attorney Jorgensen has the legal knowledge and courtroom experience to protect you and your interests.
