Debra L. Ackerman, Esq. – A Dedicated Fighter On Your Side

Legal Representation In Maryland And Washington, D.C. Since 1985

A full-service Rockville family law firm that always puts client priorities first

Practice Areas

Family Law

I work closely with clients to provide them the experienced and assertive legal counsel they need to resolve their legal problems effectively.

Personal Injury

Unlike larger firms that pass off clients to junior attorneys or paralegals, I personally handle every aspect of my clients’ cases from beginning to end.

Civil Litigation

In addition to helping people with family law and personal injury, I also provide representation for a wide range of civil matters.


I help people plan for their legacy and make sure that their families are taken care of after they are gone.

Family Law Information

I offer services including mutual consent divorce, prenup agreements, marital settlement agreements, custody, domestic violence and child support.

E-filing is finally coming to Prince George’s County. What does this mean for litigants? First, it means that your attorney will no longer need to file pleadings in person. it will save both time and money for the client. Secondly, though acceptance of the filing does not happen immediately, especially when the court is first becoming experienced with the process, the filed document will be available to the other side, pending approval. This means that there is no longer the possibility of the opposing attorney claiming a document was not received. Please feel free to contact my law office to discuss any family, domestic violence, civil or criminal matter, whether in Prince George’s, Montgomery. Frederick, Anne Arundel or Howard County and the District of Columbia.

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.

An Aggressive And Zealous Fighter, In And Out Of The Courtroom

When your rights are at stake, you want to work with a legal counsel who will be dedicated to helping you understand and protect them. I work hard to meet my clients’ legal goals in the following areas:

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. If a fair settlement cannot be reached, however, I am always more than prepared to take your case to court and fight to protect your best interests.
