Attorney Profile

The owner of his own law firm located in Rockville, Maryland, Steven M. Weisbaum focuses his practice on family law matters and personal injury and wrongful death litigation experience. Highly regarded by his fellow professionals for the quality of his work, Mr. Weisbaum has been selected for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America, and he has received a "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo.

In his family law practice, Mr. Weisbaum provides advice and counsel to people who are facing the end of their marriage and who are thus having to deal with issues related to child custody and visitation, spousal and child support, and the division of assets and debts. Because of his significant experience in mediation and collaborative divorce as well as settlement agreement negotiations, he will sometimes help his clients reach an accord on these matters through the use of those alternative dispute resolution methods instead of going through what can be an expensive and lengthy courtroom battle. In addition to his matrimonial practice, Mr. Weisbaum's family law experience has included the preparation and review of separation and prenuptial agreements. His personal injury and wrongful death cases have included motor vehicle accidents and premises liability, and in 2012, he received the Trial Lawyer of the Year Award from the Maryland Association for Justice for his successful work on behalf of a client who was injured in a slip and fall on the premises of her apartment complex.

Majoring in chemistry, Mr. Weisbaum attended Hobart and William Smith Colleges and received a Bachelor of Science in 1986. His legal education came at Boston University School of Law, and he was awarded his Juris Doctor in 1991. Mr. Weisbaum is admitted to practice in Maryland and the District of Columbia.
