Resolving Family and Marital Problems in Central Maryland

Rick Offutt, a partner of Hoffman, Comfort, Offutt, Scott & Halstad, LLP, has been providing legal advice and counsel in family law disputes and matters since 1982.  Attorney Offutt understands that domestic issues can be very stressful events in the lives of family members.  With this thought in mind, he believes strongly that efforts to settle domestic differences are in the best interests of his clients.  Not only is an amicable resolution cost-effective, but it has the further benefit of preserving the civility of a relationship which will continue into the future when minor children are involved.  Unfortunately, not all domestic cases can be settled without going to court and, in those instances, Attorney Offutt will fight for your interests before the judges and domestic masters of Carroll County.

Our family law practice includes many different areas of law, such as:

  • Separation agreements
  • Divorce
  • Custody and visitation
  • Division of property
  • Prenuptial agreements
  • Child support
  • Alimony
  • Domestic violence
  • Use of marital home


Here is a sampling of quotes from just two of Attorney Offutt’s many satisfied clients:

“…A special thanks to Rick Offutt for being there for me and to help me through all the hard times.”

“…working for an attorney prior to a new position I have now, I only wished that the attorney I had worked with for 7 years would have treated their clients as well as I was treated by Mr. Offutt.”
