Helping Service Members And Their Spouses Through the Challenges of Divorce
Service members and their spouses require a dedicated and experienced law firm to address their specific legal issues. For almost 50 years, members of the armed services and their families have turned to the family law attorneys at PGD Law PLLC, for skilled representation which meets their particular needs.
Our firm provides comprehensive family law services to clients from all branches of the U.S. Armed Forces, including active and retired military members and their families, in the Washington, D.C., area and throughout the world. In addition, our firm regularly serves members of the Coast Guard, the Public Health Service, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) Corps.
Led by senior attorney Stephen C. Glassman, our law firm uses its strong military background to develop strategic legal tactics to protect our clients’ rights and to find resolutions which make sense for their unique situations.
Working to Address the Unique Issues Military Families Face
Our attorneys understand the challenges and demands placed on service members and their families, whether they live here in the United States or abroad. To address our clients’ military divorce and family law issues, we create a customized approach for each individual.
When possible, we advocate for resolution through divorce mediation or arbitration. This method can often save service members both valuable time and money. However, we will never allow our clients’ positions to be unfairly compromised, and we are fully prepared to litigate if it is required.
We are very sensitive to the fact that many of our clients and their family members are located in foreign countries and states outside of the Washington, D.C., area. We protect our clients who are impacted by deployment. We use effective tools and seek relief from legislation, such as the Servicemembers Civil Relief Act, to protect and advance our clients’ positions even though they may be geographically remote. The emphasis is on results regardless of location.
