Howard Soypher is an experienced litigator and family law attorney. In 2022, he was inducted as a Fellow into the American College of Trial Lawyers. Fellowship in the College is extended by invitation only and only after careful investigation, to those experienced trial lawyers of diverse backgrounds, who have mastered the art of advocacy and whose professional careers have been marked by the highest standards of professionalism, civility and congeniality. Membership in the College cannot exceed one percent of the total lawyers population of any state.

As an experienced litigator, Howard knows that it most often better for families to resolve their issues outside of a courtroom setting in an effort to better control their outcome, reduce animosity and reduce expenditure on legal fees. This experience allows Howard to carefully weigh settlement offers for his clients and help position them in determining the most efficient and probable path toward a successful outcome.

In addition to his family law practice, Howard has been representing clients in trusts and estate litigation for over 25 years. His practice includes will contests, pursuing rights on behalf of trust beneficiaries and representing trustees in the course of performing their duties.

Howard is currently serving a 2-year term as the President of the Maryland Chapter of the American College of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML). The AAML is a national organization whose members are recognized for maintaining the highest degree of professionalism, integrity and excellence in the practice of family law.

Among the accomplishments that Howard is most proud of is the fact that many local lawyers have retained him to represent them in their own personal matters. Howard is frequently asked to speak at continuing educational seminars for other lawyers and judges on various family law topics, as well as various trial strategies and tactics. He enjoys doing so with the hope that some of his prior experiences will be of benefit to newer lawyers.

Among the accolades that Howard has received was his being named Best Lawyer's Washington D. C. Family Law "Lawyer of the Year" for 2021.

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
