A preeminent boutique family law firm, Ain & Bank attorneys represent clients with an acute understanding of challenges that arise in family law matters. We strive to resolve cases amicably but are also sophisticated litigators. We pride ourselves on discretion, representing a wide range of clients, including those with substantial assets and complex business interests.

Q: What do you love most about doing business in this area?

A: The metro area attracts interesting residents from a variety of personal and professional backgrounds. One great part of the work we do is learning about our clients’ careers and endeavors. The DMV has a thoughtful and engaged population who are substantive and care deeply for their work and community. We thoroughly enjoy getting to know clients we serve in DC, Maryland and Virginia.

We meet people going through one of, if not the most, difficult time in their lives. Our top priority is always to help our clients navigate the divorce process as effectively and considerately as possible. This is particularly important for clients with children. We strive to avoid exacerbating problems and causing a lasting negative impact on a family’s relationship. These clients will be a family long after their engagement with our firm ends, and we want them all to move forward in the healthiest way possible.

Q: What changes or innovations are on the horizon in your industry? How are you preparing for them?

A: Like most industries, family law will be impacted by the Covid-19 pandemic. We anticipate divorce rates will increase but also recognize that many people’s economic ability to pay for a divorce will decrease. The pandemic has also led to a tectonic shift in telework, impacting the way all practitioners conduct business. We are now fully equipped to meet with clients, engage in mediation, and conduct litigation remotely, without any disadvantage to our clients.
