Family law attorneys in Bethesda, MD. Serving Maryland, Virginia, and Washington DC

People experiencing divorce and custody issues know that these are often the most stressful times in a person’s life. It is important to work with attorneys who understand how emotionally-charged and anxiety-ridden these matters can be for their clients. At Pels Law, our seasoned attorneys are able to navigate our clients during these stressful times to reach resolutions best for our client’s families.

Our goal is immediately defining the needs and expectations of our clients, exploring creative options for resolution, all while having our clients’ best interests at heart.  Our attorneys are seasoned litigators, understanding the nuances of the law and passionately advocating on their clients’ behalf.

Types of cases we handle:

  • Divorce
  • Child custody/visitation
  • Family mediation
  • Spousal support
  • Child support
  • Property division
  • Division of retirement benefits

At Pels Law, we specialize in handling complex divorce matters. These are divorce cases where the two parties disagree about significant issues related to the divorce proceedings. Often, these types of cases require a great deal of court filings and arguments before the judge. In addition, there may be evidence that one side wishes to keep out of the courtroom, and our attorneys have expertise in finding and presenting this kind of evidence (for example, deceit or infidelities). We are also experts in handling high asset divorce cases, where there is a significant amount of property, investments, or bank accounts which are in dispute.

Divorce cases can often involve evidence from emails and text messages. Attorneys at Pels Law have extensive experience in ESI (email and text message discovery) and the learned treatise exception to hearsay. With our expertise, Pels Law utilizes trial lawyer skills that can and have uncovered “smoking guns” and “Daubert proofed” critical expert testimony.  Mr. Pels has taught ESI in continuing legal education to other attorneys and his “rules of the road” featuring the learned treatise exception to hearsay were featured in the leading book on complex civil litigation “The Rules of the Road” by Patrick Malone.
