Beth Weisberg is an experienced divorce attorney who handles all aspects of divorce cases including matters involving separation, custody, alimony, property distribution, and premarital agreements in Maryland and the District of Columbia.
Leveraging 38 years of family law experience, Beth empowers her clients by sharing information and including them in decision-making throughout her representation. Not only does this yield better results in their divorce cases, but it provides her clients with the tools to tackle conflicts immediately and, as changes occur, in the future. Beth’s clients consistently tell her that the results obtained have exceeded their initial hopes and expectations.
Beth emphasizes resolving cases without going to court, when possible. She has extensive experience with custody and child access resolution, with a focus on protecting children from being negatively impacted by the divorce. She has worked nationally on child support and related issues, and is especially proficient at helping her clients define and accomplish their goals.
Beth has contributed to various legal publications on topics including custody and parenting agreements, interstate child support enforcement, and collaborative process and mediation as alternatives to litigation.
Beth is a long-time supporter of the collaborative process, in which divorcing couples work together with their attorneys to create comprehensive marital settlement agreements addressing the concerns of both parties. The parties execute a written, signed commitment to resolve all legal and practical issues leading to a full divorce settlement agreement without going to court. While not appropriate for all couples, in most cases the collaborative process approach can be transformative and can avoid the escalation of hostility and overwhelming cost inherent in litigation. A successful collaborative process can often deliver better results for both parties and, where there are children, a vastly better outcome for the children, than adversarial negotiation or litigation.
Beth enjoys spending time with her two sons. Her favorite activities include hiking in Shenandoah National Park or along the C and O Canal, reading, and various community service projects.
