Markham Law Firm

Markham Law Firm Our firm practices in the area of family law in Maryland and Washington D.C.

Our firm practices in the area of family law in Maryland and Washington D.C. Over 100 law firms identify themselves as practicing family law in Montgomery County alone. We realize that you have many options for representation in your family law matter. This firm was formed in 2015 with the goal in mind of providing the utmost in client representation. Jessica Markham, the firm's founder has been in practice for over 10 years and still has a passion and enthusiasm for family law. Every family, and therefore every case, is different. However, in some ways each client is the same. Each deserves an attorney they trust, who returns communications promptly, explains matters fully and cares deeply about achieving the best possible results. Likewise, each case has similar challenges, including trying to move toward resolution sooner rather than later, preserving funds, and reducing stress. Where possible, we help you avoid disputes before they arise. We negotiate for clients, catching and solving problems before they become bigger ones. If disputes cannot be resolved amicably, we will represent you in Court, aggressively protecting your rights strategically and cost-effectively. We pride ourselves on making the most difficult time in a person's life a little easier by providing legally sound, practical advice, rooted in experience.
