Washington, D.C. Family Law Attorneys Providing Skillful and Compassionate Representation

Reliable guidance for your most personal legal challenges

The attorneys of Kuder, Smollar, Friedman & Mihalik, P.C. understand that there are few matters more personal, emotional and complicated than those related to personal and family legal disputes. For more than 40 years, our attorneys have been helping clients in D.C., Maryland and Virginia reach the best possible solutions to their most difficult issues.

Our attorneys have the experience to assist with clients’ family legal problems from start to finish, whether that means navigating the divorce process, negotiating property and financial matters, finding the best child custody arrangements for your family, modifying or enforcing prior court orders or dealing with difficult issues that do not fit into an obvious legal category. As lawyers, we are aware of the sensitive nature of family-related legal disputes, and we are prepared to guide clients toward appropriate and productive solutions with discretion, respect and sensitivity.  As practitioners in a rapidly evolving area of law, we continuously hone and expand our skills and knowledge.  Four of our attorneys have taught or continue teaching Family Law and other courses at area law schools, including American, Catholic, Georgetown, and George Washington Universities.

Family law cases often involve a wide range of legal issues including personal taxes, bankruptcy, neighborhood disputes, real estate and insurance benefits — to name just a few. At KSFM, our lawyers offer reliable advice and representation when it comes to addressing many of these matters. And for issues that require specialized expertise, we connect clients to qualified professionals with the appropriate knowledge and skill sets.

Finding the best path toward resolution

At our law firm, we believe that in the majority of cases, resolving family law disputes through private agreements specifically tailored to our clients’ needs is preferable to contested litigation. Our attorneys offer creative solutions through alternative dispute resolution (ADR) strategies including negotiation, mediation and other effective methods of collaborative law. ADR allows parties to resolve difficult issues using a constructive team approach, thereby avoiding the heated conflict and staggering costs that can occur during contentious, emotionally draining litigation process.

Of course, private resolution is not suitable under all circumstances and for all cases, and our lawyers are prepared to go to court when necessary. In adversarial situations, we zealously advocate for our clients’ interests at every stage of the process — from initial filing to preliminary negotiations and through trial and appeal.
