Zamani & Associates founder Sogand Zamani worked hard to build a
child-centric family law practice, helping families work through divorce and
separation processes that support healthy parent-child relationships, even
in high-conflict families. Sogand has devoted time and effort to learning to
recognize the signs and symptoms within families that contribute to complex
dynamics. Mental health issues, special needs where parents diverge on
approach, and children who resist spending time with one parent, are
With the experience necessary to effectively advocate for clients in those
circumstances, Sogand helps clients avoid crises post-separation. She brings
years of experience to bear, skillfully negotiating durable custody and divorce
agreements, and is equal to the task of litigation. Whenever needed, she
involves other professionals to prioritize the emotional health of her clients
and their children as the family goes through this significant transition.
Zamani & Associates serves families in Washington, DC and Maryland.
