For the third consecutive year, Maryland Super Lawyers has named Ferrier R. Stillman to its 2017 Top 50 Women Lawyers in Maryland for her family law practice.
Ferrier represents individuals in her family law practice. She regularly negotiates complex separation and property settlement agreements that involve the valuation and division of assets such as businesses, partnerships, investments, and retirement plans. She often handles cases in which custody, visitation rights, alimony, and child support are in dispute. In cases involving many moving parts and points of contention, she is an advocate with experience and the resources of a large law firm at her disposal. She is also experienced in premarital and post-marital agreements; pre- and post-divorce planning; separation agreements; adoptions; paternity cases; appeals; and mediations. Ferrier has represented same-sex couples for more than two decades. The recognition of same sex marriage by Maryland and then by the U.S. Supreme Court brought new and unique legal issues to the forefront. She helps her clients navigate these challenges.
Ferrier is a member of the Custody Subcommittee of the Maryland Judicial Conference. She has been appointed a Volunteer Mediator for family law cases in the Baltimore City Circuit Court’s Family Division, is a former co-chair of the Bar Association of Baltimore City's Family Law Committee, and is active in the Baltimore and Howard County Bar Associations' Family Law Committees. Ferrier has written numerous articles on a wide range of domestic relations topics. She is a frequent lecturer on domestic relations topics. Ferrier has been named to The Daily Record's Circle of Excellence, a distinction earned by being named one of Maryland's Top 100 Women three times. In 2016, The Daily Record recognized her with their annual Leadership in Law award for her dedication to the profession and community.
