Christina DeVault is a divorce attorney who helps people with separation and divorce in Maryland. She combines compassion with critical thinking: listening to each client to understand what’s most important, and explaining different strategies for potential outcomes, so together they can evaluate options for moving forward toward the next stage of the client’s life.
One client noted that “[her] supportive nature, professionalism, attention to detail, and genuine interest in my case helped me to achieve the best possible outcome, given the circumstances,” saying Christina “is brilliant and has an excellent understanding of family law issues and a remarkable ability to explain how the law would impact my case.”
Christina represents clients at all stages of separation and divorce, including negotiation, mediation, and litigation. She handles pre- and post-nuptial agreements, child custody, child support, domestic violence matters, and spousal support/alimony, as well as the identification, valuation, classification, and division of marital and non-marital property.
Christina received her law degree from Widener University School of Law after receiving a bachelor of science magna cum laude from West Virginia University. She is admitted to practice in Maryland. Prior to joining Lerch Early she practiced at a boutique family law firm.
Christina is an avid WVU basketball and football fan along with her husband, a fellow alum. Between watching games, they renovated their home, doing the majority of the work themselves. When she’s not knocking down walls or choosing finishes in her real-life version of “Fixer Upper,” Christina enjoys hiking Sugarloaf Mountain or walking along the Potomac River with her husband, son, and dog, Stella.
Judicial Intern for The Honorable G. Michael Green of the Court of Common Pleas in Delaware County, PA.
