As a Senior Counsel in the firm’s Family Law practice group, Allison McFadden focuses exclusively on protecting and enforcing the rights of spouses, parents and children involved in complex and emotional family law matters before courts in Montgomery County and throughout Maryland. Her practice covers every type of family law matter that impacts the lives of her clients, including the following:
• Child Custody & Visitation
• Child Support
• Marital Property Division
• Prenuptial Agreements
• Business Valuations
• Protective Orders
• Domestic Violence
Allison’s clients cover a broad spectrum of occupations, financial resources and legal needs, including high-net-worth business owners and professionals seeking fair division of millions of dollars in assets, parents with limited resources involved in highly-contested custody disputes and members of the military or other government agencies who often face unique challenges in family law matters given the nature of their employment. Regardless of the complexity of their situations, Allison always sets aside time to learn her clients’ specific case goals and gain a full understanding of how the dispute’s outcome will affect their lives in the future. This approach helps her guide clients through each phase of the legal process and ensure their rights are protected every step of the way.
Allison’s longstanding passion for family law began long before she joined the firm. While a law student at the University of Baltimore, she was admitted to the bar as a student lawyer and represented low-income clients on a pro bono basis in a broad range of family law matters, including protective orders, divorces and custody disputes. As a student advocate, Allison testified before the Maryland Senate Judiciary Committee in support of legislation designed to strengthen the rights of domestic violence victims.
