Whether you are facing criminal charges, involved in a family law dispute or seeking help after suffering a personal injury, it is important to work with a lawyer you can trust and who genuinely cares about the outcome of your case.

At the Rockville, Maryland, law office of Debra L. Ackerman, Esq., I have been practicing since 1985. My general practice law firm offers clients the comprehensive legal services they need. Legal problems often encompass more than one area of law, and I have the broad perspective it takes to work through interrelated issues and handle complex cases.

Contact us today if you need legal assistance with any of the following:

  • Family law
  • Personal injury

I am a zealous and aggressive fighter, but I make every effort to facilitate settlements where appropriate. I am respectful of my clients’ time and money, and never waste either pursuing litigation unnecessarily.

Attorney Debra L. Ackerman

In 1979, I earned a Bachelor of Science degree in social work, however my passion was always the law. I graduated from Washington College of Law, American University in 1985 and I have devoted myself to providing clients with professional service and attention to each client's individual needs. After graduating from the Washington College of law in 1985, I became skilled in litigation, working with experienced attorneys, while gaining exposure to a broad range of legal cases, including complex and other civil litigation, all types of family law matters, probate matters, personal injury defense and Plaintiff's personal injury matters, bankruptcy and criminal defense.

In May 1993, I opened my own law practice, which provided me with the opportunity to assist clients of all means and needs. In 2002, I moved my office from Washington, D.C. to Montgomery County, Maryland, where my law office remains. My law practice is devoted to advocating for individuals and companies, providing individual attention to each client's needs throughout Maryland and the District of Columbia. My law practice today handles every type of family law matter, including preparation of Marital Settlement (separation and property settlement agreements), divorce, both contested and uncontested, custody, domestic violence, and child support cases; personal injury criminal defense, including assault cases, traffic matters, theft and DWIs, civil litigation, and Will preparation. My goal will always be to obtain the best result possible for each individual client.

At the Law Office of Debra L Ackerman, you will receive my individual attention and will never be passed over to an associate. I will provide zealous representation and legal advice based upon my over 30 years of experience. My goal will be, when possible to resolve each client's issues without the need for contentious litigation, but you can rest assured that when there is a need to litigate your case, my office will be prepared to zealously litigate all of your issues.
