New Maryland Mutual Consent Divorce Law!

Who we are

Brian Wise, Esq. has joined Gary Altman, Esq. to form the Wise Family Law Division of Altman & Associates. Brian and Gary have combined their considerable experience to provide the highest standard of family and estate law services to each and every client.

Our goal is to help individuals and families navigate through an emotionally difficult process while maintaining family relationships and preserving assets for the future.

Brian and his family law team believe that the best way to resolve a case is in the conference room through settlement talks, negotiation and mediation.

What we do

Clients come to us with complex cases including divorce, child custody, child support, alimony, domestic violence, paternity, contempt, property division, modification, pre-marital agreements, separation, and property settlement agreements.

We also handle complex financial and property litigation matters including retirement, pension, investment accounts, inheritance, source of funds and tracing for non-marital property, business valuation, stock and stock options, monetary award, alimony and alimony buyout concepts, and real estate issues.

How we’re different

Brian and the family law division are highly skilled litigators and are able to handle complex financial, support, property and custody matters but litigation is rarely considered as a first or best option.

Brian is a certified family law mediator, has served in the Court system as a trusted mediator for families in Maryland and DC, and he continues to provide private mediation services for couples and families as part of his practice.

Brian Wise, Linette Golden and the entire team helped ensure the divorce process went as smoothly as possible. I will continue to reach out to them, even though the divorce is final, due to my ever changing circumstances. I highly recommend this Outstanding Legal Team!

I am so grateful for Brian’s legal acuity and counsel. He patiently answered every question that I asked, and there were many.

To this day, I appreciate his attention to detail in taking things one day at a time, while simultaneously providing guidance and planning within the mindset of what is best for long-term family goals. The result was something that only a genuinely caring professional could have achieved; and, you either have those skills or you don’t.

Fortunately for my children, Brian does have these skills and it made all of the difference in the world because that eased the burden of navigating through the divorce process, and I was able to be there for my kids as a result.
