Atkinson Law

Baltimore Estate Planning, Family and Criminal Law Attorneys

We are family.

You may not be able to choose your family, but you can choose your lawyer.   Why not choose a legal team that is family? 

Atkinson Law.  We are family.

We are a husband and wife team of lawyers who count ourselves among the many families raising children in the Baltimore suburbs of Harford, Cecil and Baltimore counties.  We recognize the issues families face in today's fast moving, high-technology world.   We know Maryland law and family dynamics.  We realize how complicated things can get.  Let us help you simplify.  If you need legal advice for you, your family or your small business, make Atkinson Law part of your family.   

Atkinson Law offers Bel Air, Fallston, Catonsville, Nottingham and other surrounding Baltimore County residents the opportunity to experience legal services that are nothing short of excellent.  We have the background and the knowledge you need in a lawyer.  You can be confident that we will do our research on you, your case, your adversary and your court so that we are prepared beyond the shadow of a doubt.  We defend you as if you were family.  You won't find this dedication anywhere else in the Baltimore region.  We are experts in the areas of:

Estate Planning – We make this unthinkable task easy.  We know many people don't want to think about what happens after they die.  As a result, many people avoid creating a will or planning their estates.  Let Atkinson Law make it easier for you. Our extensive experience in developing wills and trusts will banish the dread of dead from your head.  Don't procrastinate another day.  We can also establish power of attorney, and help with probate and estate administration for your family's needs.

Personal Injury – If you've been in an auto accident, have fallen or experienced negligence on someone's property, we can help you recover your losses.  We'll find the right angle for you, because your family deserves the best.

Bankruptcy – Our team has 15 years of experience in Bankruptcy law and can help you wipe out your debt and start anew.  We handle Chapter 7 bankruptcies that clear you of debt and Chapter 13 bankruptcies that reorganize your debts.

Criminal Defense – If you're facing criminal charges, you can come to us.  We have a rich history in successful criminal defense.  We're successful because we analyze your case and help you develop a defense that makes sense.  Come to us for charges like felonies, assault, robbery, theft, fraud, domestic assault, drug cases and alcohol offenses. 

DUI – The consequences for this serious offense are unrelenting and can change your life.  We work with you to make sure you are able to tell your full story and we negotiate consequences that are in your best interests.

Traffic Violations We can help you with insurance violations, MVA administrative hearings and any infraction that may revoke or suspend your driver's license.

Family Law – Family law includes legal representation when a family isn't so perfect.  We handle cases in divorce, child custody, alimony, child support, visitation rights, separation agreements, prenuptial agreements and protective orders.

When you work with Atkinson Law, we want you to be as comfortable as if we were part of your family.  In fact, we foster our client relationships in such a way that we almost become family! 

Some of our family traits:

  • Straight talk. We value honesty, integrity and straight talk. 
  • Open door policy. We go beyond the obvious and delve into the “why” of your case.  Nothing is automatically “an open and shut case.”
  • Natural consequences. We seek to understand, but also know that every action has its consequences.  We'll be frank about the case and what you can expect. 
  • Because I said so. We work with you to create a game plan that we think will result in the best possible outcome for you and your family.   We provide recommendations and suggestions that our experience shows resonate with the court, and we encourage you to follow through. 
  • Do it anyway. We empathize with you, while at the same time being honest and objective.  We know you're anxious, even frightened.  We'll simplify the process and let you know what to expect.
  • Be a player. We are on your team!  We encourage you to be an active part of it.

Atkinson Law has been serving clients in the Baltimore County area for 15 years.   Together, Yollette and Les Atkinson have been practicing law for over 30 years.  Atkinson Law is a minority-owned business that prides itself on open communication and providing the comfort level of being with your own family.  We want to be your trusted legal source for family law, estate planning, bankruptcies and criminal defense.
