Our Firm

small 10At the Law Office of Anne Kelly Laynor, our experienced attorneys have been providing high-quality family law services in and around Howard County since 2001. Our firm focuses exclusively on family law, including divorce, separation, child support, child custody, property division, and more.

Divorce and family law issues present some of the most confusing and stressful moments in life. It is important to have an advocate in your corner to keep you informed of your options and legal rights, and help you to transition your family structure in the most efficient, effective, and healthy way. From a foundation of open, honest, straightforward, and clear communication, we will inform you of what you can expect from your case and potential likely outcomes.

Good representation includes strong legal knowledge and compassionate counsel. We are dedicated to obtaining the best possible results for our clients. We work diligently to accomplish our client’s objectives, seeking efficient and cost-effective alternatives to litigation whenever possible. We offer alternatives to traditional litigation such as mediation in which clients retain the power to make decisions regarding the issues in their case.

If litigation becomes necessary, we are appropriately aggressive in protecting our client’s interests. We are aware of the risks and costs associated with prolonged litigation, and will continue to seek options for early resolution of cases, consistent with our client’s objectives.

After a divorce, it is important that you review and revise your estate plans in light of your new family situation. In September 2015, we began working with attorney Suzanne Simpson, an experienced estates and trusts attorney, who can assist you with any estate changes that need to be made.
