Kathryn E. Deckert
For nearly a decade, Kathryn Deckert has guided clients through personal crises involving family law and domestic violence matters. Throughout each case, she listens empathetically and sets before each client available options they should consider when making short- and long-term decisions. Kathryn applies her experience and creativity to formulate case strategies that meet her clients’ goals, and tailors her approach to match their needs. She focuses her practice in family law, specifically cases involving divorce, child custody, child support, pre- and post-nuptial agreements and domestic violence matters.
With organization and thorough preparation at the center of her approach, Kathryn remains primed to negotiate an agreement for a client in mediation or try a case in court. Her years of courtroom experience include serving as a staff attorney for the House of Ruth in Montgomery, Baltimore and Prince George’s counties, a role that afforded her hundreds of opportunities to represent victims of domestic violence in divorce, custody and protective order matters.
Kathryn is actively involved in the legal community and the Bar Association of Montgomery County, where she has served on the Executive and Strategic Planning Committees and co-chaired the New Practitioner Section. She regularly volunteers as part of the Bar Association’s community service initiatives, including projects with Manna Food Center and Special Olympics of Maryland – Montgomery County.
Kathryn was born and raised in Montgomery County, Maryland. When she’s not helping clients, she enjoys cooking, traveling, biking and yoga
