Will, Power of Attorney & Living WillHaving a Will, Power of Attorney, and Living Will is essential for controlling your future. These legal documents set out how decisions will be made regarding your health care, financial and legal matters, and how your wealth will be distributed when you pass away.
Without planning for contingencies, the state will decide these issues for you or your loved ones will be left struggling to make decisions without your guidance. At Weinberg & Schwartz, L.

Adoption & GuardianshipWeinberg & Schwartz can also help parents, as well as other family members and others, explore their options to provide a safe and nurturing environment for children in need of care.

Prenuptial & Postnuptial AgreementsDivorces occur with increasing frequency in Howard County and across the United States.
They can be messy, expensive, hostile, or emotionally draining - but there's not much you can do to control the process if the person on the other end has a different agenda than you. Prenuptial and postnuptial agreements allow current or potential spouses to sit together in quieter moments and make rational and practical decisions that ensure that each of them is protected if the marriage does not last. Our Columbia family attorneys can negotiate, draft, or review an agreement on your behalf to make sure it meets your needs. Through mediation and collaborative law, we help parties work together to create solutions that make the most sense for them and their unique needs.
When parties are too far apart or unable to communicate productively, our attorneys are assertive and effective litigation advocates. Even when issues are highly controversial, it is still possible to approach a resolution calmly and rationally while keeping emotions at bay. Regardless of the process and the needs of your case, our Columbia family attorneys provide expert advice and representation that protects your rights and promotes your best interests for a positive outcome.
TestimonialsGauri Bayoumi: I hired Gauri Bayoumi for my divorce and I couldn't have been happier with my choice.
She is very knowledgeable and extremely patient - very emotionally intelligent - which I really appreciated during such a difficult time. I highly recommend her to anyone looking to hire an attorney.
Amos Whitney: Amos Whitney helped me quickly file for an order of protection against an ex-partner. He took my call over the weekend, guided me through the entire process, told me what to expect, and helped me prepare for the hearing.
I was in a bad situation but Amos stepped in as a guardian angel to fight for my rights as a father.
Jolie Weinberg & Ethan Dellinger: Weinberg & Schwartz helped me mediate and settle my divorce. I am very satisfied with the final result.

Jolie Weinberg & Ethan Dellinger were highly recommended by several people including fellow lawyers - their communication skills were beyond reproach.
