Areas of practice

  • Family law — all legal issues arising from domestic life (Though it deals with premarital issues, family law most often concerns disputes surrounding a legal separation or divorce and continues with post-divorce issues.)
  • Divorce — a variety of processes related to marital dissolution, including uncontested divorce, contested divorce, divorce mediation and collaborative divorce
  • Uncontested divorce — assistance in reaching a final settlement agreement acceptable to the Maryland family court (This is the quickest and least expensive form of divorce.)
  • Separation— legal safeguards for couples contemplating divorce for whom divorce is not a viable option
  • Child custody — negotiation, mediation and litigation of matters related to physical and legal custody of minor children
  • Property Division — Helping clients win property rights and retain separate property.
  • Property Distribution — negotiation, mediation and litigation of issues affecting the marital estate under Maryland’s equitable distribution laws
  • Child support — legal counsel on children’s rights and parental obligation regarding the financial aspects of parenting
  • Alimony — financial maintenance for dependent spouses from separation through divorce, including modifications due to changed financial circumstances
  • Litigation — courtroom representation at hearings and trials of family law matters
  • Mediation and collaborative law — alternative methods of resolving disputes over marital issues (ADR methods are generally quicker, less expensive and less confrontational than courtroom litigation.)
  • Prenuptial agreements — legal safeguards for individuals wishing to protect business or personal assets prior to marriage or after a separation but prior to reconciliation
  • Post-divorce issues — negotiation, mediation and litigation of issues that arise after a divorce has been finalized, generally related to support payments and child custody

  • Stacy: I can’t thank you enough for everything you have done. It has been such a stressful and emotional time for me but you made it simple and as pain free as possible. I can’t even express to you how much it means to me. All of the time and money, there are not works that can tell you how thankful I am. You are such a kind, compassionate, generous person. I do believe in good karma and that no good deed goes unnoticed! Thanks

  • My ex-husband (bipolar I + severe alcoholic) left Maryland for 2 years and abruptly returned, demanding to resume visitation with my son. To protect my son, I sought a child custody attorney and was referred to Stacy Talbott. She did a fantastic job of opposing my ex-husband’s outlandish case, while also controlling costs. My ex-husband’s attorneys dropped their fallacious suit against me and we settled out of court, with virtually all of my originally desired protective provisions in place.

  • Thanks to Mrs. Talbott and Mrs. Michelle, they helped me during one of the most difficult times in my life. I’m happy that God chose the right lawyer for me as I had absolutely no idea how to find one by myself. Despite the fact that the separation/divorce was painful, interacting with the two of them helped me stay positive. I recommend Mrs. Talbott for anyone that I care for.
