Blank Rome Recognized as the “Law Firm of Year” for Family Law by U.S. News & World Report

Blank Rome’s highly regarded matrimonial and family law attorneys counsel individuals and couples in all legal aspects of marriage, from planning and negotiating prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, to separation agreements and divorce proceedings. In each case, the goal is to achieve the best, most expeditious result for our client through negotiations and, when necessary, in court. We are also experienced at guiding our clients through the mediation process.

All too often, marriage ends before “death do us part." When that happens, experienced legal counsel can make an enormous contribution to a successful resolution of the family’s problems.
