"I hired Gauri Bayoumi for my divorce and I couldn’t have been more happy of having chosen her. She is highly knowledgeable and extremely patient, highly emotionally intelligent. I recommend her to anyone who is looking to hire an attorney while going through such a tough time, you will be in great hands."

"Amos Whitney helped me quickly file and receive a protective order against a former partner. He took my call over the weekend, guided me through the entire process, told me what to expect, and helped me prepare for the hearing. He came to the hearing with me and made sure that I had zero contact with the defendant. He made me feel safe and secure and was extremely knowledgeable. I knew Amos had my best interest in mind and that I could trust him wholeheartedly. Even after the case was over, he answered questions from the defendant and kept me updated so that I would not have to deal with him directly. For what was a terrifying situation and something that no one ever wants to go through, I was so grateful to have Amos by my side throughout the process."

"I was in a bad way and needed someone who would fight for me and my time with my daughter. Amos Whitney from Weinberg & Schwartz stepped in like a guardian angel and fought for my rights as a parent. Now I have much more time with my daughter and have legal rights to her and that's all because of Amos being professional but fierce."

"Ms. Weinberg helped me through my divorce mediation and settlement. I was extremely pleased with the final outcome. She gave me sensible advice and was able to talk through a variety of possibilities and scenarios, some that we wanted to happen, and others that we wanted to avoid. She was factual and task-oriented when that was needed and was sensitive and supportive when that was in order. And she is tough. My ex's attorney was a tough negotiator, and Ms. Weinberg was rock-solid."

"I was referred to Marni Schwartz for my divorce proceedings and must say that I am very impressed with her highly qualified professionalism and the outcome. I know this is such because the lawyer for my first divorce did not handle my case with any where near this level of skill or concern. Additionally, everyone that I dealt with at Weinberg & Schwartz, L.L.C. from the time I walked into the office, to every phone call was handled with the utmost of courtesy, kindness, and respect. I would give Marni and this firm 10 stars if I could!"

"THE BEST DECISION I MADE was hiring Amos Whitney. After my divorce was finalized in 2017, I was saddled with Alimony for a fixed time period of 5 years and then after that, I was ordered to pay for life!!! Toward the end of my 5 years, I knew I needed a better attorney than the one I had previously. So, I set out to find the best for my situation. Not only did I find the best lawyer, firm, and associates, but I found one of the most efficient lawyers/practices I've ever been involved with. Amos listened to my concerns, goals, and needs. He worked with me on the realism of my case, and he managed my expectations. He took the emotion out of it, which really helped me stay focused on the end goal. I would highly recommend Amos and the firm. I do need to give a huge shout out to Jamie, Amos' assistant, she was so helpful and her quick responses to my needs and questions were amazing. A great team for sure. Amos was so good communicating in a timely manner. I would be happy to give a referral if needed."

"Thankfully, Amos Whitney and Jamie Goldberg came to the rescue. Their entire staff was incredibly empathetic, knowledgeable, and above all, ETHICAL. As a local public school educator, that means so much to me. Everything that Amos did was above board and highly-principled, which further attests to the level of professionalism at Weinberg and Schwartz. I was also very impressed that they remembered me--I didn't feel as if I was "just another client". Whenever I called or emailed, they were able to recall right away the details of my case and listened intently to my concerns. That alone helped put my mind at ease and made my family and I feel much safer. After working with Amos Whitney and the staff at Weinberg and Schwartz, I would without a doubt recommend them to anyone in Maryland who needs advice from a phenomenal group of family law experts. Their advocacy has left an indelible mark on my life, and I cannot thank them enough."

"I had the pleasure of having Guari Bayoumi as my divorce lawyer. She was very professional, she explained my case to me step by step and was very honest how things would work.
I never felt like I was left in the dark about the process. Her office staff was prompt with answers to my questions and at the same time they were very friendly.
Guari made my divorce as easy as she possibly could even though my spouse was difficult. I recommend her highly !!"

"Jolie did an outstanding job making very easy for my teenager son to return to his high school in Columbia. His mother, who had physical custody, moved with him to Virginia, regardless of his needs. Within a month after trial, he was back at Wildelake with his friends."

"I reached out to Weinberg & Schwartz and specifically requested for Gauri Bayoumi given her credentials and experience working with cross-cultural clients. During my first consultation, she took her time to thoroughly understand my situation and presented me with clear next steps. She was transparent about the challenges that I may face during COVID especially with the court system and I truly appreciated the honesty as It helped me set realistic expectations. Her office was thorough with all the documentation and timely updates and I faced no issues whatsoever through out the divorce proceeding. Divorce is a life changing event and it is important to choose the right attorney to represent you, I am glad with my decision to go with Gauri Bayoumi and her firm."

My ex wife try to take everything and leave me with nothing and I was working very hard trying to make ends meet and I didn't have alot and he was a man that saw that and he help me so much. I would recommend him to anybody that a good person trying."

"I just finalized a year-long custody battle with my son’s father and I absolutely could not have done it without Ethan Dellinger. I usually don’t take the time to write reviews, but after everything he did for me, it’s the least I can do. I feel that I truly lucked out, finding him, as he came highly recommended by a friend. His rate was reasonable especially for a single mom like myself, and he is very considerate about billable hours. He encouraged me throughout the whole process to not back down on certain terms, how to deal with my challenging ex, and ultimately worked out a favorable outcome for both parties. Throughout the whole process, he was always easy to get a hold of, quickly responsive to emails, and very respectful of my time. The same goes for his paralegal Jamie who did an outstanding job as well. Anyone would be lucky to have Ethan fighting by their side! Thanks again Ethan and Jamie!"

"Amos came highly recommended from one of his colleagues. I have a very unique multi-faceted case which is quite complex. This case is swiftly moving along. I have to say that Amos came in prepared and took charge. I'm impressed with his investigative work. He has a wealth of knowledge and gave clear direction. I like his no BS, straight shooter kind of approach. I really appreciate his honesty and guidance."

5 Star review

"I met with multiple attorneys before deciding to work with Jolie Weinberg and Ethan Dellinger. Ms. Weinberg came highly recommended from multiple people including fellow attorneys. Their recommendations, communication, and professionalism are above reproach. At times my case was very complicated yet they remained laser focused on my best interests. Mr. Dellinger has been direct and steadfast with his recommendations both legally as well as personally. I have never regretted or doubted my choice to work with this firm. They are well regarded in all aspects of the legal community and that is because they have built an excellent reputation. I highly recommend them to anyone who needs tenacity and legal proficiency."

"I will be forever grateful to Mrs. Gauri Bayoumi, because over the past year while working on my Custody and Child Support case she was nothing short of amazing. Mrs. Bayoumi's professionalism, responsiveness, and attentiveness to my situation made me feel extremely comfortable and confident with the process and the overall outcome of my case. The strategic manner in which she presented evidence during the trial to how she called witnesses to testify, showed me I was working with a seasoned attorney. Prior to even going to trial Mrs. Bayoumi made many attempts, on my behalf, to offer a settlement to the opposing side to alleviate the need for trial. As tough as this situation was for me, working through it with Mrs. Bayoumi was the only reason it turned out as well as it did. If I ever need legal representation again I will certainly contact Mrs. Gauri Bayoumi!"

"Despite my ex-wife's abusive behavior, it took way too long to step in to stop her from hitting our children. I finally came to that last straw when my son was left with a cut on his face after his mother hit him. I came to Gauri Bayoumi angry and frustrated and worried about both the cost of the undertaking and whether the court would even grant me sole custody. Gauri understood where I was coming from and empathized and then she set to work. Her advice was sound and any time she could save me money, she did. Let me tell you, in the time of a pandemic when you're unemployed, this is an unbelievable gift. At some point in this very difficult process, I thought I should get a second opinion just to ensure that I wasn't giving up any advantage that might help me protect my children and get sole custody. I reached out to Margret Oliver (a very highly regarded lawyer in the state of Maryland) and not only did she confirm Gauri's advice but gave her high praise for her knowledge and strategy given my circumstances. This process was not easy, but I am so thankful that I had Gauri to hold my hand, walk me through it, and help me keep my three little boys safe. In the end, I got sole custody through a settlement with my ex-wife and my boys have been thriving ever since. From me and my family, thank you Gauri!"

"Jolie Weinberg is a great advocate. She worked for me in a collaborative divorce, and was passionate about getting to an equitable solution while keeping my children's well being paramount. Although ultimately, the other party in my divorce was unwilling to be an honest partner in this process, and I had to move on to a different attorney, I am grateful to Jolie for her intellect, and full attention to my case. Jolie is easy to talk to and has a unique ability to represent her clients from all angles and with integrity."

"Great firm, handled my case professionally courteously, looks at best interests of all, fair to all. They were detailed oriented, to the point and best at finding constructive solutions that saw the best for all parties."

"From our initial consultation- even before I selected him as my attorney, Amos Whitney offered great advice. He did everything possible to get me the divorce settlement I deserved. My ex had a horrible lawyer and Amos repeatedly went above and beyond to show him how to do things, such as re-writing the opposing sides initial document for divorce and telling the other lawyer how to file answers to the court on line. Amos knew my budget was tight and worked with me to see things thru to the end. I would definitely recommend Mr. Whitney to anyone!"

"Outstanding Practice!
I was referred to Weinberg & Schwartz, L.L.C. after an unsuccessful engagement with another custody firm. When I came in I was deflated, frustrated, nervous, anxious and completely overwhelmed. I met with Marni Schwartz who referred me to Gauri Bayoumi. They both instantly took the time to understand my concerns, the current state of my case, and thoroughly explained the process to me. I’ve never been through a child custody/support case before and my experience from my initial attorney left me more anxious than before. Gauri was passionate, calming, and truly had my and my daughters best interest in mind. She continued to impress me with each interaction, filing, response and rebuttal. She took over my case with very little time to prepare and did so with urgency and professionalism. The amount of stress she removed from me during this process is immeasurable. I am forever grateful to have had her in my corner through such an intimidating and unsettling process."

5 Star review

"As a father being sued for additional child support I was very concerned about the potential legal outcome and the overall complexity of the case. Amos did a fantastic job at reducing the matter to the material legal issues at hand and working hard to get a fair resolution to the matter. Amos kept it out of court, keeping costs down, and negotiated a fair settlement that protected me and was in the best interests of my children. He also made sure that I was protected from the matter being re-opened in the future. I cannot recommend him strongly enough."

"The Weinberg & Schwartz, L.L.C. Pension/QDRO Center is a great resource for our firm and our clients. They have the experience and skill needed to navigate through the complexities of transferring retirement assets incident to a divorce. The Center has always been thorough and responsive to our requests, and we highly recommend them."

"Weinberg & Schwartz, L.L.C. have an excellent team. I was very lucky to have worked with Jolie Weinberg in particular. Jolie is an excellent attorney – she came recommended to me from my contacts in local public education where I served on and chaired a number of committees for PTA and the Board of Education. She is very well known and respected in those circles. After a long and drawn out contested divorce a decade and a half ago – it is difficult to even compare “life before” and “life after” her expert support. Jolie is exceptionally gifted at using the law as the tool it was intended for – to “heal” or “make one whole” As a single father with two daughters in tow – and a former spouse who seemed to wish to use the Court as a tool to punish us in any possible manner for leaving an abusive situation – Jolie was exceptionally brilliant. And she offers so much more than to simply represent your legal rights. She is well connected to the fabric of our community and has colleagues and connections in other disciplines to help with social services, counselling, psychiatric support, and finance. She is your consummate “one stop shop” for expert legal support – and connections to other support - to achieve a complete and whole life in the post litigation phase. My daughters have grown up to be professionals and are now happy and secure – and I owe the most instrumental phases of this to Jolie and her expert navigation to achieve a trio of happy and productive lives. This is such a stark and sharp contrast to the previous tumultuous life that we had endured before our new rich life… Ms. Weinberg has clearly earned a huge cache of “karma points” in her career….. She is the best!"

"My aunt had a wonderful experience with this law firm. The following is her review:
I’m thankful I met and got to know Amos Whitney of Weinberg & Schwartz, L.L.C., a family law firm in Columbia, MD. A competent and knowledgeable lawyer, he guided and helped me accomplish the three important documents and put my wishes in place. I’m glad everything is now settled and in order giving me a peace of mind. Amos and his staff were very helpful and patient during the whole process. No doubt I would recommend this firm to my friends."

"As a person involved in a complicated divorce, I cannot praise enough the attention I received and the quality of the work performed on my behalf by Weinberg & Schwartz, L.L.C. in general and Jolie Weinberg and para-legal Trevor O'Connor in particular. I know whereof I speak because I come from a family of lawyers and my daughter, who is a lawyer, followed the case closely. I certainly will recommend Weinberg & Schwartz, L.L.C. to anyone seeking legal assistance in any matter of family law."

"Ms. Weinberg was highly recommended to me by a friend’s attorney. I have found her to be THE BEST one can get. Despite her busy schedule and long weekend coming up she drafted a document for me within 24 hrs of my meeting with her to make sure that things didn’t have to wait. And as a BIG PLUS she has the best, softest and kindest attitude that one needs during the tough times. Thank you Ms. Weinberg."

"I had a very difficult case and Amos handled it better than I ever thought was possible. He went above and beyond to ensure we were doing everything in the best interest of my family and more importantly my son. He was very informative and really helped walk my family through the case as best as possible. He explained things and for a first time custody battle that really helped me understand what needed to be done to achieve our goals. He recommended a great counselor, BIA (Best Interest Attorney) and really went above and beyond to ensure that I had the best legal advice that we could have asked for. I would recommend Amos to anyone that needed a good family attorney. I have absolute no complaints with anyone at the firm. His paralegal Cindy was also extremely helpful and worked very hard to help us with everything when she could. Could not be happier with the way they handled my case."

From the first consultation to the signed agreement, they were both kind, patient and exceptionally knowledgeable in securing me both peace of mind and the best possible outcome. I would highly recommend them both as they went above and beyond and made the overwhelming situation manageable. They were always accessible, often reached out to me and were always one step ahead of the developments."
