Ron Naditch has decades of experience successfully handling disputes in the areas of family law (a prenuptial agreement, divorce, alimony, domestic violence, and all children related issues), automobile accidents, criminal law, and general civil law.
Ron is a graduate of Dickinson College and University of Maryland Law School (with honors), where he served as an Assistant Editor of the Maryland Law Review and finished in the top 10 percent of his day school class. After law school, he served as a law clerk for The Honorable C. Ferdinand Sybert, a judge on the Maryland Court of Appeals. He then served a tour of duty in the United States Coast Guard before going into private practice as an associate of Goodman and Bloom in Annapolis, a position he held for one year.
For more than 25 years thereafter, while Ron was developing his private practice, he served under five States Attorneys as a part-time Senior Assistant State’s Attorney in Anne Arundel County. In this capacity, he specialized in handling murders, rapes, robberies, and other major felony cases until he retired in 1993. During his legal career, Ron has represented the Anne Arundel County Department of Social Services; has been a member of the Maryland Attorney Grievance Review Board, and has been recognized by Martindale Hubbell (a publication that rates lawyers based upon responses from their peers) as an “AV” rated attorney since the mid-1970s. He also has the highest attorney rating from AVVO. In 1993, the judges of the Anne Arundel County Circuit Court appointed him as part-time Master/Examiner and he has been hearing uncontested divorce cases for the Court,
for 24 years.
At this stage of his practice, a great deal of Ron’s time is spent conducting mediations for people who have family law issues. It has been his experience, after more than 25 years as a mediator, that nearly all family law issues can be resolved in this non-adversarial procedure. Mediation is far less expensive than litigation and, with the assistance of a trained mediator, can allow couples to dissolve their marriages and determine how to fairly resolve all child-related issues, as well as issues relating to fair and appropriate monetary adjustments with regard to their property and/or income.
Ron considers family law to be a unique legal area and that it is in the best interest of the divorcing parties and their children if they seek to mediate solutions to their problems, as opposed to allowing the courts to mandate decisions about their lives, the lives of their children, and their financial assets. Divorce should not be about winners, losers, and results that end in scorched earth. Peaceful solutions to divorces inure to the benefit of all parties. An attorney should act as a problem solver, neither accelerating nor aggravating what is often a stormy situation. Ron’s approach is to say to his clients when they come into his office, “Let’s
sit down, discuss, meditate, and resolve the issues, instead of letting a person in a black robe make a decision about you and your family.”
According to Ron, “I think of myself as a problem solver, not a troublemaker, in family law cases. But if trouble arises, I have the experience to handle it.”
