Bethesda Property Division Lawyer
At the law office of Steven J. Gaba, I provide comprehensive family law representation. I understand the financial and emotional issues associated with divorce and strive to minimize my clients' consequences. I evaluate each client's situation thoroughly to determine the best course of action. My goal is to exhaust all avenues in my pursuit of creative resolutions. However, if litigation or trial is in my clients' best interests, I will aggressively fight to protect their rights.
Marital Property Division
Maryland courts follow equitable distribution guidelines for dividing marital assets and debts. As an experienced Rockville divorce attorney, I understand that the guidelines do not guarantee a 50-50 split. I can review your marital and nonmarital property, including pensions, retirement plans, 401ks and IRAs to provide insights into how the courts may distribute property.
Property division for business owners and high net worth individuals is often complex. I have experience handling high net worth divorce cases. I understand how to identify and protect specific assets. When needed, I can consult with forensic accountants to trace business assets and other property.
Collaboration and Mediation
I have dedicated nearly 20 years of my legal career to helping Montgomery County community members going through divorce. I understand that child support and custody issues often create stress and animosity. I am dedicated to guiding clients through their concerns to help them achieve their goals.
Collaborative law and mediation can help keep both parties focused on resolving their issues. I have extensive collaborative law and mediation experience. Notably, I am a member of the International Association of Collaborative Professionals (IACP). I can discuss each process to help clients understand possible benefits.
However, as an experienced trial attorney, I have the skills and resources necessary to take clients' cases through litigation and trial.
