David Bulitt

"I represent my clients the way I'd want someone to represent me. I find out what they want, address their worries and concerns, tell them their options, and advise them of the risks. If I'm unable to resolve the problems out of court, I am ready to stand up and fight for them."

David Bulitt


David Bulitt focuses his practice on complex family law cases, helping clients in Maryland and Washington, DC, through difficult times, including divorce, custody battles and other contentious domestic conflicts.  Clients regard David as both a skilled negotiator at the mediation table and as a staunch advocate in the courtroom.  David is also the author of two popular books of fiction.

Although he has been involved in cases throughout the State of Maryland and in other jurisdictions as well,   David most frequently litigates cases in the DC metropolitan area, including courtrooms in Montgomery, Howard, Frederick, Anne Arundel and Howard counties, as well as the District of Columbia. His clients often are women, ages 40 to 70, with a complicated mix of significant assets, marital and non-marital. "My goal is to help clients reach favorable divorce settlements that protect their rights, their assets and their children," as David put it.  "When settlement is not the best option, I'm fully prepared to take a case to the courtroom and try it all the way to the end."  David is an experienced and aggressive courtroom advocate who has successfully litigated divorce and custody cases since he first became a lawyer in 1986. As part of his practice, David is often appointed a Best Interest Attorney by Maryland courts for minor children in contested custody matters. He has a particular understanding of the concerns of families that include children with special needs.  

David's second novel, Because I Had To, was published in January, 2017. Drawing on his years as a divorce lawyer and father of four daughters, Because I Had To has been called “keenly observed, smart and funny” by an early reviewer. His first novel, Card Game, drew rave reviews after its release in 2015, and he is presently at work on his third book.  The process of researching and writing books has made David an even stronger observer of the human condition.  "I'm better able to relate to clients, to understand their concerns and priorities. As a result, I'm more passionate than ever about defending my clients’ rights during divorce, particularly the interests of their children."
