Domestic Violence & Child Custody

Baltimore Domestic Violence and Custody Lawyers

Before domestic violence develops as a dangerous pattern in your life, get the legal advice and compassionate counsel you need to make it stop.

In domestic violence cases, the law firm of Engel & Engel has experience representing both the petitioner (complainant) and the respondent (accused). Knowing all the angles informs our perspective and brings added value to our clients in each domestic violence and child custody case we take. To complement our ability to aggressively represent our clients in court, our law firm also has certified mediators who empower clients in controlling the outcome through a less-adversarial, speedier, and cost-effective process.

Child Custody

Based in Baltimore, Maryland, our attorneys provide compassionate counsel to individuals and families in domestic violence cases involving spousal abuse, child abuse, neglect, and molestation. Take action to protect your children from the physical and emotional toll of domestic violence, and talk to a child custody attorney at Engel & Engel.

Restraining Orders

If you need protection, our domestic violence lawyers can help you get the safe space you need by filing a restraining order, or "no contact order," to keep you and your children out of harm's way.


Sometimes, a restraining order allows people just the time and space they need to let cooler heads prevail through mediation. Whenever possible, we try to help clients avoid unnecessary litigation when mediation has a chance to spare families the emotional and financial toll of a courtroom battle.

We have well over a century of combined litigation experience to draw upon, and over time we have earned our reputation with opposing counsel as fierce courtroom adversaries. We believe our clients find comfort from our zealous qualities, just as they appreciate our patience in listening to them and providing compassionate counsel that is realistic, fair, and helpful in coping with their situation.

Do not let an already bad situation at home take a turn for the worse for you and your children. Contact us for a free initial consultation to discuss your domestic violence case with a lawyer who understands the sensitivity and urgency of your personal situation.
