Rockville Maryland (Montgomery County) Attorney Wendy Satin practices Criminal Defense and Family Law. Wendy Satin brings a wealth of trial experience coupled with a calm, straightforward approach and keen legal acumen to the Law Office of Wendy Satin, PA. Wendy Satin is regarded as one of the best lawyers in the state of Maryland.

Wendy Satin brings vast trial experience and empirical knowledge to the table whether the job is big or small. All cases are “big” to the person at risk, who deserves to have someone with a thorough and realistic grasp of the judicial system helping them in their time of need.

Attorney Profile

A graduate of Catholic University’s Columbus School of Law, Ms. Satin has been practicing law in Maryland since 1991, concentrating in the areas of criminal defense and family law. Under the tutelage of the great legal mind of Senator Victor Crawford, Ms. Satin tried numerous felony criminal cases (including murder and rape cases) before she opened her own practice. She was Senator Crawford’s star pupil, and his only associate, at the time of his death. Senator Crawford’s concept of a “small town lawyer,” who cares for all individuals equally regardless of their financial standing or the public profile of their case, is a value Ms. Satin brings to her own practice.

On the criminal side, Ms. Satin has covered a huge variety of cases, including drug offenses, sex offenses, theft, fraud, arson, assault, assault with intent to maim, violations of probation, weapons charges, DUI/DWI, destruction of property, and more. On the domestic side, Ms. Satin handles everything from a simple uncontested divorce to the most complex battles involving child custody and access, income disparity and spousal support, real and personal property rights, and business valuation and ownership. Additionally, Ms. Satin drafts prenuptial agreements, postnuptial agreements, and separation agreements.

Ms. Satin also handles protective orders, which are a good example of how criminal and civil cases intersect. She will try the civil protective order case, the often concurrent criminal case, and then the divorce case as well. In dealing with domestic cases, Ms. Satin brings more than just book knowledge to the table. She is trained in the new method of handling family matters collaboratively.

Practice Areas

Ms. Satin represents clients in Maryland. She understands that family law and criminal cases are often stressful and can be draining emotionally, physically, and economically. That is why she is committed to finding a smooth and satisfactory resolution to your legal issue as quickly as possible.

Whether handling a divorce or representing a defendant facing misdemeanor or felony charges, Ms. Satin does not shy away from difficult cases. Ms. Satin knows that people do not like going to court, and she always tries to resolve cases, such as divorces, with as little time in court as possible. However, when necessary, she is prepared and willing to aggressively defend your interests in lengthy court battles, whether they are family, criminal or both.

A prominent law firm hired by Republican lawmakers to defend the federal ban on gay marriage said Monday it was withdrawing from the case amid criticism by advocacy groups, prompting the partner leading the work to quit.

The move by Atlanta-based King & Spalding is the latest flashpoint in the public debate over gay rights. Chairman Robert Hays Jr. said the firm chose to divorce itself from the controversy after determining that the decision to take the case wasn't vetted properly, but gay rights groups had also been pressuring the 800-lawyer company with plans for a protest Tuesday in Atlanta and with calls to its other clients. The groups cheered the move.

The decision, however, was sharply criticized by conservative groups, legal observers and the partner who had been handling the case, a former high-ranking Justice Department official under President George W. Bush. Washington-based attorney Paul Clement said he's moving to another law office so he can continue the work.

Clement had been retained by House Republican leaders after President Barack Obama ordered the Justice Department in February to stop defending the Defense of Marriage Act. His administration said it believes the 1996 law, which defines marriage as only between a man and a woman, was unconstitutional.

Ex-Michigan U.S. Rep. Bart Stupak has been named a partner at a top Washington lobbying and law firm.

The Democrat from Menominee played a key role in the passage of President Barack Obama's health care legislation. He didn't seek re-election in 2010.

Venable LLC announced Monday that Stupak will serve as a partner in its legislative and government affairs practice.

Venable has a large stable of former lawmakers and government officials, including ex-Sen. Birch Bayh of Indiana and ex-Transportation Secretary James Burnley.

Stupak served on the House's Energy and Commerce Committee during 18 years in Congress, chairing its subcommittee on Oversight and Investigations.

He's also serving as a fellow at Harvard University's Institute of Politics.

Gov. Deval Patrick is set to make his latest pick to the state’s highest court.

The governor has scheduled a Monday afternoon news conference at the Statehouse to nominate an associate justice to the Supreme Judicial Court. If confirmed, the person chosen would succeed Judith Cowin, who in January announced plans to retire after 11 years on the high court.

This will be the fourth associate justice that Patrick has selected to the SJC, meaning that he will now have personally selected a majority of the justices on the seven-member court, the oldest continuously serving court in the Western Hemisphere.

Patrick also elevated Roderick Ireland to chief justice of the SJC following the retirement last year of Margaret Marshall.

NY firm buys RI's WLNE-TV for $4 million

A Bronxville, N.Y.-based broadcasting company is buying a struggling affiliate of the ABC broadcast network in Rhode Island for $4 million.

A Superior Court judge in Providence approved the bid by Citadel Communications LLC to buy WLNE-TV on Tuesday because it was the only bidder that had struck an affiliation agreement with ABC. The station's expired affiliate agreement had been extended to April 1.

Court-appointed receiver Matthew McGowan says the deal with ABC was decisive because ABC could yank its signal. Three bidders who had not reached a deal with ABC were required to put the money upfront and competitively bid for the station, but they declined to do so.

Global paid $14 million for WLNE-TV in 2007. The firm went into receivership in 2010. Owner Kevin O'Brien did not respond to a call for comment.

The law firm and the congressional committee that investigated drugs in baseball are fighting pitching standout Roger Clemens over access to evidence collected against him, a development that could delay the trial on charges he lied about being a user.

The House Oversight and Government Reform Committee and the firm that produced the Mitchell Report filed motions in federal court in Washington on Friday to quash Clemens' subpoenas. Clemens wants to see their evidence accusing him of using steroids and human growth hormone, likely looking for weaknesses or inconsistencies in witness testimony to defend himself in the criminal trial scheduled for July.

In 2006, Major League Baseball Commissioner Bud Selig hired former Sen. George Mitchell and the DLA Piper firm he worked for at the time to investigate allegations that players used drugs. The Mitchell Report issued Dec. 13, 2007, accused several players including Clemens.

The House committee held hearings on the report in February 2008. Clemens testified that he never used performance-enhancing drugs during 23 seasons, in which he recorded 354 wins and 4,672 strikeouts and won seven Cy Young awards. Prosecutors say evidence proves that he did and charged him with perjury, false statement and obstruction of Congress.

Clemens wants DLA Piper to turn over material related to its interviews with his longtime personal trainer Brian McNamee, who told investigators he injected Clemens with performance-enhancing drugs; admitted steroid user and retired player Jose Canseco; and former New York Mets clubhouse attendant Kirk Radomski, who McNamee said provided the drugs Clemens used.
