Ed Bouquet is a lifelong resident of the Washington, DC area with more than 30 years of experience as a family law attorney. Mr. Bouquet is a seasoned negotiator and litigator who has creatively and effectively sought resolutions for his clients in disputes in trial and appellate courts.

In addition to his experience as a litigator, Mr. Bouquet has 20 years of experience as a certified mediator with a proven record of helping people, with or without their attorneys, develop practical solutions for their specific circumstances. With the courts closed to the public for most matters during the COVID-19 pandemic, Mr. Bouquet provides remote mediation services to those who need assistance in their custody/access, child support, divorce, or other family law matters.

Rated 10 out of 10 on Avvo, and recognized in US News Best Lawyers, The Wall Street Journal, Washington Post, Baltimore Magazine and SuperLawyers for Washington, DC and Maryland, Mr. Bouquet has earned his AV Preeminent rating from Martindale-Hubbel for excellence in the practice of law and for maintaining the highest standards of ethics. Throughout his extensive career, Mr. Bouquet has successfully represented clients in matters concerning:• Divorce and separation, including same-sex marriage

  • Alimony
  • Custody
  • Child Support
  • Complex financial disputes and property division
  • Valuation of businesses/professional practices
  • Pre-nuptial and other marital agreements

Over the years, Mr. Bouquet has lectured on many aspects of family law, including family law generally for members of the bar, drafting pre-nuptial agreements, use of experts in divorce litigation, and proving or defending claims of voluntary impoverishment in child support and alimony cases.

Licensed to practice law in Maryland and The District of Columbia, Mr. Bouquet has litigated matters in Superior Court and in courts in Montgomery, Frederick, Anne Arundel, Howard, Calvert, Charles, Washington, Garrett and Prince George's as well as New Jersey, Massachusetts, Missouri and Oregon. He has argued appeals in the DC and Maryland's appellate courts. This depth of practice has provided him with insight into how the courts handle a wide variety of matters and situations, which has been invaluable to him in counseling clients to make informed decisions about their cases and the most personal aspects of their lives. It is this perspective that has contributed to Mr. Bouquet's long history of being appointed to mediate cases by DC Superior Court and Maryland Courts, as well as being retained by private parties and their attorneys looking for solutions outside of a courtroom.
