Domestic Disputes

A note from Attorney Rhonda L. Patterson

I have affiliated my growing practice and national brand with the renowned regional firm of Offit Kurman.

WHAT CHANGES: I am now part of a 500 person brain trust–people all pulling in the same direction–towards fixing whatever it is that you need fixing. I also now have a host of in house referrals for you and am excited to be part of a one stop shop for all of your legal needs.

WHAT STAYS THE SAME: My billing rates, my flexible retainers, and my reliance on YOU for your referrals. Importantly, my personal commitment to solving your family law problems with unparalleled excellence remains unchanged.

I see this as an opportunity to offer more diverse and dynamic service to people experiencing divorce in our area—especially those who thought they couldn’t afford a big firm. I hope to also work with the firm to increase diversity and inclusion in BigLaw and to help forge a new career trajectory for local lawyers of color, especially in the family law space. You don’t currently see many of us in these spaces. I consider it a privilege to help change that.
