Stein Sperling’s family law department has significant experience handling domestic violence matters, including supervisory involvement by several of our attorneys in the Montgomery County Circuit Court’s Domestic Violence Assistance Project. Most often, these matters involve requests for or enforcement of protective, or restraining, orders. These orders are usually filed in family court and relate to acts of abuse that have been threatened or committed by a spouse, domestic partner, or other family members.

As we assist clients in this domain, we listen carefully to their needs and concerns, maintaining a sensitivity to each unique situation and working as quickly as possible to protect our clients as well as their legal rights.
