Attorney Profile

An attorney at Kuwamura Law Group, P.A., Heather Sunderman divides her practice among family law matters, estate planning and administration, and fiduciary litigation. Located in the firm's Rockville office, she provides advice and counsel to clients throughout Montgomery County and other parts of Maryland. In addition to Maryland, Ms. Sunderman is admitted to practice in Virginia and the District of Columbia, and she has received a 9.7 peer review rating through Avvo for the quality of her work and high degree of ethics.

Ms. Sunderman's family law experience has largely involved the representation of people whose marriages are coming to an end and who are thus having to deal with such issues as property division, child custody and visitation, and alimony and child support. A forceful courtroom advocate when necessary and appropriate, her training in mediation and collaborative law often allows her to help her clients reach an accord on some of these matters through the use of those alternative dispute resolution methods. In addition to her matrimonial practice, Ms. Sunderman also has experience in adoptions and in helping domestic violence victims seek appropriate protective orders from the court. She has also been appointed as guardian ad litem for minor children whose parents are involved in high-conflict custody battles.

Born and raised in Pittsburgh, Ms. Sunderman attended Allegheny College in her native state, and she received a Bachelor of Arts in history in 2000. She then went on to pursue her legal education at the American University Washington College of Law and was awarded her Juris Doctor cum laude in 2003. Her professional memberships include the Family Law Section of the Bar Association of Montgomery County, Maryland.
