Amos’ practice covers all areas of Family Law: Divorce, Child Custody, Child Support, Protecting and Dividing Marital Assets, Alimony, Separation Agreements and Domestic Violence Hearings. Amos often works on high-conflict divorce cases and cases involving complex financial matters. Amos is familiar with many types of executive compensation, deferred compensation, business valuations and the complicated nature of business ownership income. However, there is no case that is too small for Amos, and he dedicates a portion of his practice to pro bono representation of litigants who cannot afford private counsel.
Amos is regularly appointed by the Courts to represent children in high-conflict custody and divorce cases. In this special role, Amos works closely with physicians, counselors, therapists and other mental health professionals to ensure that his approach to the legal issues are consistent with his clients’ goals.
Amos also handles appeals of family law matters. In fact, he successfully briefed and argued a case before the Court of Special Appeals resulting in a reported opinion setting forth new Maryland law regarding Best Interest Attorneys.
