Monica L. Scherer - Best Lawyers
Monica L. Scherer - Super Lawyers

Monica Scherer is a senior partner at Silverman Thompson and heads the Firm’s family law practice. She concentrates representation in divorce, child custody, parenting agreements, alimony, marital property division, marital settlement agreements, child support, visitation, paternity, step-parent adoption, jurisdictional disputes, and interstate child custody and child support matters. Her vast experience in domestic/family law matters is the foundation of her recognition as a leading Maryland family, divorce, and custody attorney. 

Ms. Scherer regularly appears in state courts throughout Maryland. She has skillfully litigated and settled hundreds of domestic cases, obtaining favorable results for her clients. Ms. Scherer regularly represents high profile clients in state court, including professional sports figures and business owners with significant assets at stake. Additionally, Ms. Scherer has obtained custody for many clients, both men and women. Ms. Scherer has successfully argued cases before the Maryland appellate courts resulting in published and unpublished opinions.  

Ms. Scherer is also trained in collaborative law, which is a commitment to recognizing that divorce and other family matters are multi-dimensional and often require assistance from other collaboratively trained professionals such as child specialists, financial specialists, and/or a divorce coach. The goal of the collaborative approach is a negotiated settlement focusing on empowering the client, following established guidelines and protocols without the threat of court action from the collaborative attorneys.  

Ms. Scherer is also a trained civil mediator and is regularly appointed by state courts to serve as a Best Interest Attorney or Privilege Attorney to represent children in highly contested cases. Her client-first, goal-oriented strategy is consistently recognized by her peers and by Maryland Super Lawyers and Best Lawyers as the best divorce lawyer in Maryland, the best custody lawyer in Maryland, and the best Maryland family attorney, to name a few.

The Maryland counties she serves include, but are not limited to: Annapolis, Towson, Glen Burnie, Howard County, Anne Arundel County, Baltimore County, Baltimore City, Columbia, Ellicott City, and Fredrick.
