About Thyden Gross and Callahan LLP
Thyden Gross and Callahan LLP, established in 1972, represents individuals and business clients in Maryland, Virginia and the District of Columbia. Our lawyers have a depth of knowledge and experience to bring to family law cases, which includes all of the legal areas that sometimes encompasses, such as litigation, taxes, business law and bankruptcy. We are an “av” rated firm. That is the highest rating a firm can receive from Martindale Hubbell. These ratings attest to a lawyer’s professional legal ability and ethics and are based on the confidential opinions of members of the Bar and the Judiciary. Our lawyers have also been recognized by Washingtonian Magazine and Maryland Super Lawyers Magazine.
Our philosophy is that a constructive approach to cases, and a respectful approach to clients, lawyers, opposing spouses in divorce cases best serves our clients. We believe that divorce is one area of law in which overly aggressive and hostile tactics do not work well. They serve only to delay resolution, run up legal costs and do lasting harm to children and families. We believe it is better to establish good long term relationships with our clients, rather than making a quick fee in any particular case. Most of our new cases come from word of mouth and referrals from our clients.
