More Than Just Your Lawyer. Your Legal Guide and Advocate in Family Law and Criminal Defense Matters.

A Family Tradition Of Representation Since 1950

At the Law Offices of Michael Gast, we provide the personal touch our clients need when facing life-changing times. We understand the stress experienced when a marriage ends and provide both legal and moral support. We know that criminal charges involving a DUI can upend a life. Throughout the entire legal process, we remain at our clients’ side, aggressively representing them and focusing on their peace of mind.

A Lawyer With A Unique Background And Unique Legal Practice

Michael Gast, the founder of our law firm, has a unique background that serves as the foundation for his equally unique practice of divorce law and criminal defense. He is an attorney licensed to practice in Maryland and Oregon. He is a published author. He prefers mixed martial arts to golfing with his legal peers. As a young adult, he was a boxer.

In starting his legal career, he became a prosecutor. After serving as in-house counsel for a construction company in Oregon while maintaining a private practice doing divorce and custody work, he returned to Maryland in 2004, first joining a law firm and then opening the Law Offices of Michael Gast.

All of his “pursuits,” while stark in their differences, taught him the necessity of being aggressive. Knowing when to be on the offensive and understanding the need for a strong defense are important. In divorce cases that involve child custody disputes, alimony and property division, he knows when to throw punches and when to protect his clients.
