Family law and other legal services for individuals and families in the District of Columbia and Maryland.

I have been a licensed attorney working in the Washington DC area since 2010, after graduating from the University of Pennsylvania Law School. I have worked with many clients on my own, through law firms, and through pro bono partnerships. I also have experience working behind the scenes as a clerk for a judge. I formally started JD Lane Law in early 2017 to serve paying clients, in addition to the pro bono clients I had been serving for years, and I have since served over 100 clients. I have been cited as an expert on family law in publications including The New York Times. Hiring me helps support my continued service to lower income clients.
