Mrs. Scherer is a senior partner in the firm and heads the family law practice at Silverman Thompson. 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 (including international child custody disputes), and interstate child custody and child support matters.

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 She has successfully argued cases before the Maryland appellate courts resulting in published and unpublished opinions.

Mrs. 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.

Mrs. 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. Mrs. Scherer’s vast experience in domestic/family law matters is the foundation of her recognition as a leader in her field.
