At the Law Offices of Michael Gast, the founder of our family law firm takes a dedicated and diligent approach to divorce actions. However, that aggressive approach does not equal a highly contested and contentious divorce action.

Divorce Can Protect Financial Futures And Save Lives

Many clients are seeking divorce because they have grown away from their spouse. Others discover infidelity and need to protect the marital estate, specifically joint bank accounts. An abusive spouse or parent addicted to drugs can also lead to divorce actions for the sake of protecting family members, specifically children.

Numerous divorces are the result of financial problems. Michael Gast's background as a bankruptcy attorney helps Maryland residents file Chapter 7 and Chapter 13 filings in addition to their divorce actions.
