How do I select an attorney?
Attorney selection is an important and personal decision. We believe the attorney and client relationship works best when it feels like a partnership. We each have an important role and trust is key. Our client needs to trust that we understand our client’s unique situation and we are competent to manage all the legal challenges that situation brings. We need to trust that our client will consider our advice and be candid with us. We map out strategies to meet our client’s individual needs and we emphasize the importance of the partner-like relationship at each turn, so that we are always working cohesively to maximize our clients’ outcomes.

How do clients benefit from working with your firm?
Our clients benefit from the reputation we have built and from our goal-centric approach. Our reputation is guided by the fundamental principles of integrity, professionalism and results. With each client, we develop a plan that is custom-tailored to help the client achieve his or her desired goals in the most cost-effective way.

While some firms market themselves as being aggressive litigators or collaborative peacemakers, we handle all resolution methods, such as mediation, alternative dispute models, collaborative methods, litigation and everything in between. We consider ourselves in a partnership with clients. We don’t just tell them what to do, we explain all options and the most likely outcomes. We are vigilant about staying in communication and being proactive.

Rismiller Law Group practices in the areas of family law, employment law, business planning and formation, trusts and estates law, and civil and criminal litigation. We combine experience and compassion to provide effective legal representation with integrity, professionalism and unrivaled commitment to our clients’ best interest. We are conveniently located next to the Rockville Metro Station.
