Your Guide to Separating Happily

Providing Personal, Professional Legal Services

Did you know we wrote a book? Over the many years of working on divorce, custody, and other family law cases, we’ve figured out some really effective ways to achieve a stress-free resolution. In fact, we share these tips with each of our clients on a regular basis and see tremendous success.

In 2014, we took this knowledge and compiled it into a book called Happily Separating. Here’s a brief overview of our book, and why we decided to take the time to write it.

Who we Are

Alan L. Billian, P.A. is an Owings Mills, MD law firm who specializes in family law including divorce and child custody. We’re not your typical lawyers. We pride ourselves on being honest, responsive, and caring. Our clients are much more than a case number and we believe that shows with how much our clients appreciate the work we do with them.

Why Write a Book?

While our practice area seems to keep our client base geographically limited to Maryland and surrounding areas, we felt it was important to share our experiences with anyone who needs a little extra help. We wrote this book so anyone, client or not, can follow our proven methods and make smarter decisions during their divorce or any other stressful situation.
