Cordell & Cordell Baltimore divorce attorney Claire V. Costantino centers her practice on family law since she is passionate about working directly with clients.
Ms. Costantino’s family law experience ranges from high-conflict custody and divorce litigation to mediation. In addition to zealously representing clients in court and in settlement negotiations, Ms. Costantino is qualified to serve as a third-party neutral mediator to mediate family law matters.
“Family law cases catch a whole family at a critical transition point, and I am honored to have the chance to guide clients through that transition to a successful resolution,” Ms. Costantino said. “I became a lawyer because I wanted to help people solve important problems, and what could be more important than family?”
Ms. Costantino believes finding the humor in a situation makes any process easier. Family law cases can be very stressful for clients, so she tries to find a laugh when appropriate.
She also tells her clients to think of her like a partner in resolving their case since they both have important knowledge. The client knows what’s best for their family, what’s important to them, and what they want to achieve.
“I know how to navigate the court system, what tactics will best achieve their goals, and how to handle the surprises that come with litigation,” she said. “If we can get on the same page and work together, the case will go smoothly.”
