The Terms of Your Divorce Will Define Your Future.
Divorce turns your life upside down. You need a zealous advocate to defend your financial future, parental rights, and your integrity. Mr. Weisman understands that every family law case should begin with establishing realistic goals and expectations. Amar S. Weisman is the child of divorce and, in 2013, he went through his own Baltimore County absolute divorce matter. At a recent gathering of family law attorneys, Mr. Weisman explained how experiencing the divorce process as a client made him a better lawyer,
"I was shocked to be separated; the divorce process thrust upon me; my home, retirement, and business seemed so threatened, but only for a second; then I hired an excellent attorney and his knowledge, skill and precision empowered me; all of the sudden I was ready for whatever. And then I realized: this is what I do for my own clients. My knowledge, skill and precision changes them; my mission is for them to feel ready for whatever is around the corner. Being a client also reminded me that, to the client, everything is important; every email, phone call, court paper, preliminary hearing; every detail matters, requiring excellence every step of the way."
