Paul Reinstein is the best attorney in the DC/VA/MD area. I was in a dire strait situation with all odds against me. Many attorneys turned down representing me telling me that I was in a "no win" situation. That was until I found Mr Reinstein. He was not only willing to help but I could feel his compassion for my situation. Immediately he and his fantastic staff went into motion. They were not just hard workers and knowledgeable but they were extremely kind and caring.. Paul, in the courtroom is a powerhouse. He not only knows the law so well, his cross examination cannot be touched!! He knew every angle of my case and researched every aspect so that the opposing party could be no match for us. I like the fact that he not only thinks how we will proceed but how the opposing party will as well. Against all odds, I won the case many attorneys told me I had no chance of winning. I truly believe I wouldn't have been able to cross the hurdle without Mr Reinstein.. Additionally it was nice seeing the other attorneys in the courthouse giving him so much respect. That is because they all knew like I did, he was the best. All I can say is if your looking for the best and you want to win, even if the odds are against you, Paul Reinstein is your answer…. Thank you Paul and your wonderful staff. Now I can begin my new life with a smile…..

excellent results!!

Dan handled my child support case with great care, knowledge and efficiency , keeping me informed and was able to bring about an agreeable outcome for all involved and I would highly recommend him and his firm .

Worth every penny

After meeting with Maureen she immediately did research on my case, gave me
detailed information regarding the matter and I told her "I want you to
represent me!" We continued to go over my case (divorce, property &
separation) and she had so much knowledge that she educated me on regarding
the best way to resolve the issues I faced. Her professionalism and
presentation is commanding, she will fight for her client. She made a phone
call to the other parties attorney and settled a matter in minutes which
gave her sufficient time to prepare my case. In court she carries a level of
confidence that is obvious to the entire courtroom. She is not only
respected by other attorneys as a subject matter expert in Military Law, she
is respected by Judges as well. Her unique ability to break down an
attorneys argument was something you only see in movies. I have already
recommended her to people who are seeking divorce attorneys. She was able to
accomplish a successful trial and it ended in my favor. I wish she would get
a reality show because she is definitely the superhero attorney you want on
your side. She is definitely worth every penny and I highly recommend her
just as she was highly recommended to me. This attorney is more than golden
she is a Diamond!

Very professional and very responsive to my specific needs.

Daniel Renart was there when I needed him and gave me exactly what I asked for and needed in a family attorney. My situation was NOT cut and dry and therefore took time, dedication and expertise. That is exactly what I got from him. I would highly recommend him for any family matter requiring an attorney; for representation or consultation.


Really Looks Out For BEST Interest!!

I interviewed 4 lawyers before I decided on Randy. His professionalism, ethics, knowledge, and listening ability was exactly what I was looking for. Being married for 25+ years, I knew it wasn't going to be easy and I wanted the best possible attorney representing my best interest and Randy did that plus! As the road got bumpy, Randy would help steer the journey straight and keep things progressing. One thing Randy advised me was to approach this as a business decision and once I understood that, it helped keep the emotional aspect minimal. Hopefully I will never need his services again in this area, but if I do, he will definitely be my first call. ONE OF THE BEST!!

Excellent divorce lawyer

Mr. Renart was extremely helpful in my recent divorce in allowing me to avoid costly expenses of court while still helping me retain a settlement that best served my family's interests. He was strategic in managing the legal aspects and yet remained focused on helping me achieve the outcomes I wanted for the least expense. I also appreciated his calm demeanor and steady guidance during a very stressful process! I would highly recommend him as a divorce lawyer.


Maureen Saved Us & is Awesome. She is not scared of high-conflict divorces-mine from "well-known" Attorney, sociopath with NPD!

Maureen is fabulous at what she does. Fortuitously, I found her after she was recommended by the circuit court after my attorney quit in the middle of our divorce process, namely because she was threatened by my "Mister Big Shot" DC attorney. My saga is a long one, in the end I intend to write a book, no joke (I'm a writer by trade), so I'll try to keep it short although there are very many things I could address that may help people looking for such an attorney.

Maureen is not scared of anyone in my opinion :-). I was a young wife & mom with two babies/toddler when my husband left us. We'd been together 14 years and it was shock to the core, "We don't believe in divorce" I was told for over decade, although there were red flags – they seem so huge now- and if I only knew then what I know now. He turns 40 & had midlife crisis. And much more. But I refused separation agreement, numb in shock & busy raising babes, & I did not get an attorney until we had been separated for over a year. I went to various consultations with top attorneys in the area, and many were concerned about the case and it high-profile/high conflict condition. The attorney I finally hired was "ready to attack" husband Who had taken savings, pathological liar, incredibly difficult but she seemed empathetic to my saga & dealing with narcissists it seems.
So I spent over half a year process and a PL hearing with this attorney. I wish I had Maureen then. That attorney slowly stopped responding to emails and was disorganized mess – but this is about Maureen.

So, almost 2 years after ex left us, I was without attorney, being attacked with lies and threats from ex, and scared to death. I then found Maureen. She had like a years worth of work and catching up to do for my divorce case. But she worked incredibly quickly and took interest in my difficult situation. She was certainly not afraid of my soon-to-be ex. She is tough, strong woman & was very organized and explained things that I had not learned after being with a different attorney for nearly a year. She hit the ground running.
In addition she is extremely intelligent. She is very good with the numbers game that is divorce and the stress doing with child support and alimony and splitting assets and more. I would certainly use her again and I'm still in the midst of dealing with a now ex-husband that will not follow the separation agreement signed and notarized with three lawyers in the room. Now I have to deal with him being in contempt of court. Not surprise, no longer does anything surprise me and once a very emotional and overly giving person I was, I learned to have a thick skin with these kind of situations. If yours is not personal, sadly, it is just business. We had many assets to divide after such time together, and you work insane hours the entire marriage and children and they are my life. Maureen help me take the emotion out of it for divorce court purposes. [of course I'm a hands-on mommy, All I wanted was my babies – husband already had mistress the day he left us, and I cared for them nonstop with my mother] husband was gone and took kids seven states away anytime he had a weekend. So we are still dealing with ex NOT following up on his end of the settlement agreement – LYING pathologically, 401(k), final settlement monies, et al.
Maureen is always there for me. I would recommend her to everyone. And I already do. She is one busy attorney I am sure and has many awards. THANK YOU DEAR Maureen for everything you have done for my family. I KNOW THIS IS CHEESY, BUT YOU KNOW I'M LIKE THAT-- You were sent from the heavens I strongly believe --- I was destined to find you after my other attorney ran for the hills because you saved my life and finally I found a real attorney – organize and brilliant.

outstanding child custody attorney

I highly recommend Dan Renart, who handled my recent custody visitation dispute. Mr. Renart deftly identified key issues that controlled the case and stayed with that tack. He kept me apprised of case direction including expenses. While not inexpensive, his persuasive and tactful communication with the other party convinced that party to dismiss the case, sparing me court costs and emotional anguish..

Thank You

I was immediately impressed with Mr. Reinstein's intimate knowledge of the law and his work with the Maryland Legislature on Family Law. My divorce quickly turned into a custody battle and as anxious as I was I felt very confident with Mr. Reinstein handling my case. Prior to Mr. Reinstein, I had another attorney representing me that did not work out well. I very quickly realized the difference between a good attorney and a bad attorney. Mr. Reinstein is clearly passionate about what he does and I can not thank him enough for his help.

Definitely One to Have on Your Side!

Mr. Herriott represented in a Custody/Child Support case in June 2011. My ex-husband and I were divorced in Japan and a Divorce Decree was issued. Three years later, he wanted to modify the decree to get more visitation and pay less than the decree stated. Mr. Herriott immediately jumped to action and took control. I felt very comfortable with him handling my case. He regularly phoned and emailed me to let me know the status of the situation, and he was very thorough in answering any questions that I had. He was very proactive in getting opposing counsel to act on items he was delinquent with. At the settlement meeting, Mr. Herriott was a force to be reckoned with. In the end, he was successful in having me granted sole legal and physical custody of my son, increasing the child support amount by $600, and meeting all of my stipulations for visitation. In the end, I only had to compromise an additional 20 hours of visitation a month. I was very relieved to have been done with the situation. Mr. Herriott's professionalism, dedication, and unswerving devotion to my case was impeccable. I could not have asked for better representation. He is definitely one you want on your side.


I am most grateful and appreciative for her help and council during a most difficult period of my life. Her expertise in military retirement pensions and the knowledge of the Calvert County court system was invaluable for the successful litigation of my case. It was a long 17 month struggle in which Ms. Glackin kept me grounded and focused when I became most frustrated. I would highly recommend her counsel to anyone who asked.
Thanks Maureen!


Outstanding commitment to his Clients.

Though the circumstances in which I have had to seek an attorney have not been pleasant. Mr Renart has been outstanding in keeping the lines of communication open between all parties involved while looking out for my family's best interest. His professionalism and his ability to make the process less arduous has made our journey almost effortless.

Lot's of Thanks

Dear Maureen,
    I just wanted to send a special word of appreciation. You didn't have to take our case. However Agodd and I are so thankful to you did. You have such a great firm with wonderful caring and supportive staff. Friday afternoon while picking Agodd up from school. Someone asked me how i was doing? I could finally answer honestly. I'm feeling hopeful and positive and optimistic again.  It's a wonderful feeling. Sooooo
Thanks again,
Kayla and Agodd

My Attorney Was An Answer To My Prayers

Paul Reinstein is professional, courteous and effective. He was always respectful, kind and patient even under the most intense negotiations and tight deadlines. I'm very grateful to him and his legal team. As a result of his efforts, my children and I are well protected. Thank you Paul.

Excellent Results

Daniel was very thorough and committed in reviewing and acting on my alimony dispute case. He was creative and proactive and achieved excellent results. Additionally I found him to be very likable. Were I to need legal assistance in the future I would certainly engage Daniel.

Maureen Glackin is professional, sharp, detail oriented and always on top of things.

After working with several attorneys Maureen Glackin has been my Attorney for custody issues for a few years. I would recommend her above anyone. She is professional, sharp, detail oriented and always on top of things. I don’t know what I would have done with out her. I would highly recommend her and she really does care.

I have recommended Maureen to several people and she has never let anyone down. She is more than just another attorney. She cares and she will work hard for her clients. Without going into too many details I can say she did what no other person could. I am still using Maureen and I have all the faith in the world that she will work hard and do her best for my family.

Nothing but the BEST!

Having worked with this law firm before, I knew what kind of service to expect. When Mrs. Glackin was assigned to my case and we started a working relationship, I knew that I had the best lawyer who was going to do everything in her power to help me out. She was honest, upfront, fair, communicated everything well, and knew her stuff. I would not hesitate to recommend Mrs. Glackin to anyone that would be in need of the services that she is expertice in.


Mr. Herriott represented me in a divorce action I initiated that also involved child custody issues. While I was understandably stressed and uncertain about the outcome, my anxieties lessened as we worked together. He was always prepared for court proceedings, his strategies were well planned and executed, he always kept me informed of issues and case status, and he displayed empathy and care when times were challenging and difficult. I truly believe that the favorable/fair outcome that resulted stemmed from the unrelenting dedication, professionalism, and preparation he gives to all of his cases.

Smart, aggressive and intuitive. I was glad Ms. Glackin was in my corner.

I called Maureen for help after another attorney had my case for more than a year with little forward motion. She came highly recommended by more than one of my clients. She was able to meet with me after a very short wait, quickly grasped the intricacies of my case and was exceptional in understanding what I wanted in my divorce. Maureen or her paralegal were readily available when I called and were able to give savvy advice in a timely manner. I will be highly recommending her to others in need of her services.

Maureen has been an excellent resource and advocate for me in an extremely difficult divorce case

Maureen Glackin has been a constant and steady source of advice and support through my divorce. My case was extremely difficult, long and contentious. I always felt that I could turn to her for advice and that I could follow it without hesitating, knowing with out a doubt that it would serve the best interest of myself and my children. She went above the call of duty more than once to drop everything to assist me in my times of need with emergency hearings, visitation issues, and countless other issues. She and her staff made huge efforts to stay on top of my case and the myriad of details that were involved.. They also went out of their way to make sure that I was informed of every action so that I always had a clear understanding of what was happening. She was an apt and able guide through the jungle of divorce litigation that I found myself in. I would recommend her highly to anyone who needs an attorney.


I sought the legal services of Maureen Glackin regarding my divorce a few years ago and most recently concerning child custody issues. Mrs. Glackin has always indeed been a pleasure to work with during these extremely difficult and challenging life changing events. Mrs. Glackin is incredibly experienced, knowledgeable and professional. Her guidance and counsel was invaluable. I have referred friends to Mrs. Glackin that were in need of her services and will continue to do so.

Best family law attorney

Paul really knows the law and has a very understanding demeanor. He is very personable and takes the time to answer questions. I would highly recommend him for any family law matter.


Highly Recommended

When I first met with Ms. Glackin, I knew within the first 10 mins that she was the perfect lawyer to represent me in my divorce case. My fight against my ex was a tough and long process, however, Ms, Glackin stood by my side the entire time and was able to use her military knowledge to fight for the rights that my daughter and I deserved. During the entire process, Ms. Glackin helped me understand what needed to be done, explained valuable information to me and supported my daughter and me. She was very patient with me when I had questions and needed to understand what was going to happen and what needed to be done to be successful. I truly believe that a Higher Power led me to Ms. Glackin and her services. Her professionalism was impeccable throughout, whether in meetings, mediation, but especially during the court hearing. If you are a single mom, facing a difficult military divorce, I highly recommend Maureen Glackin to represent you and your family.


Trustworthy, knowledgeable, and hardworking

Mr. Herriott represented me in my divorce and a subsequent child custody modification. He was thorough, knowledgeable, and responsive the entire time he represented me. The guidance and counsel he provided was instrumental in my gaining the sole, legal, and primary physical custody of my 3 children. I am grateful for all of the hard work he did on my behalf and I highly recommend him.
