Annapolis Divorce Attorneys

When you are going through a family law matter, we know that you may be facing one of the most emotionally and economically trying times of your life. Rice Law offers clients legal advocates who will fight for you when you feel like you cannot fight for yourself. Our Annapolis family law lawyers will work hard to settle your case, but if it goes to trial, we will go nine rounds for you. With our divorce legal team, you have strong advocates who you can trust.

Facing these matters can be emotional and not always rational. Being ingrained in the fight, however, can cause you to lose sight of what is most important: your children. We talk to you about the effects of a contentious divorce on your children, providing examples from our own personal experiences and using our in-depth knowledge of the law. We care about our clients and we care about their relationship with their children. It shows in everything we do.

Advocating for Your Best Interests

Our Annapolis divorce attorneys will take the time to educate you on the law and explain likely outcomes based on your situation. We are firm and direct while being empathetic and understanding. Our Annapolis divorce lawyers want to give you confidence that we will fight fiercely but fairly. Our goal is to solve problems and not create new ones so you feel better and more confident. Our role is not only to get you the best results for your divorce case, but to also give you the confidence and tools you need to move forward.
