A divorce or a criminal charge typically has the effect of upending people’s lives, and at these times, it is essential for people in Montgomery County, Maryland, to find an attorney who is both aggressive and compassionate. As founder of The Lay Law Office, attorney Sakhouy Lay has dedicated her practice to fulfilling clients’ needs by listening to their circumstances and their goals, and then putting her deep knowledge of the legal system to work for them.
