Detail oriented, Organized, and Efficient!

Mr. Fanning worked with me in an organized way. He has an attention for detail and explains things thoroughly. I told him exactly what I was seeking in my divorce. He informed me of the entire process. His help and expertise resulted in the settlement that I wanted. He made going through this circumstance smooth. 

Mr. Fanning was an excellent attorney, and I highly recommend him for any family law issue. He was very attentive to my case and easy to communicate with.

Mr. Fanning supported me through years of emotional turmoil. Divorce and child custody, amongst the lingering effects there of, are no easy task for anyone. Mr. Fanning allowed me the comfort of knowing my case was being handled knowledgeably, professionally and with my best interest as the priority. He takes the time to put things in perspective when I was often blinded by emotion. His knowledge of the law is incredibly extensive and his reputation within the system is one that is respected. I would recommend Mr. Fanning for your legal needs and I will continue to use his services, as needed, with mine.

"Excellent... I cannot express the appreciation I have for Mr. Fanning and his wonderful office staff. I went (and still going) through a very difficult divorce where my ex husband hasn’t paid his court ordered alimony. They have always been in contact with me and letting me know what alternatives I have. The compassion from the first meeting with Mr. Fanning was very much appreciated. He really listened and cared about my best interest. His experience and skill delivered a divorce settlement that was very impressive. My ex husband is now in contempt of court and Mr. Fanning is diligently trying to bring him to justice. I cannot say how much I appreciate all his hard work. The office manager Jackie has also been such an asset to me. She is always in contact with me every step of the way. I have and will continue to refer Mr. Fanning to anyone who needs an experienced lawyer who will give you the best representation. He won’t stop until justice has been served."

I considered Attorney Bill Fanning to represent me based on a referral from a friend I respect, and boy did he not disappoint! His calm, cool and collected demeanor really put me at ease during a long and stressful custody case. Here's an attorney who really knows his stuff and is well respected throughout Charles County. I highly recommend him for your legal needs.

"Amazing Family Law Attorney! Mr. Fanning is a compassionate, honest, extremely knowledgeable family law attorney who came highly recommended by friends and coworkers. He was extremely supportive throughout my custody/child support case. He kept me abreast on everything regarding my case, thoroughly answered any questions I had, and was flexible by allowing me to make payment arrangements. Mr. Fanning supported me and fought for me and I will always be grateful. At the end, I gained sole legal and physical custody of my daughter and her father’s child support obligation did not decrease. I highly recommend this law firm for any of your family law cases."

"Thank you Mr. Fanning and staff for taking care of my mom and for helping her through the hardest part of her life!"

"I retained Mr. Fanning for my divorce. I made clear of my expectations and he followed through with no issues. He is a well known attorney in the area and very reputable. I highly recommend his services.

"Hands down I would recommend Mr. Fanning to represent myself or anyone else in a courtroom. He represented me several times for an on-going child support case several years back. Each time we left the courtroom people would get up and ask for his business card. He's a very good, honest, devoted and straight to the point type of person. Trust me when I tell you he kept me out of a lot of situations that could have turned bad. I could never thank him enough for his hard work!"

"A severely handicapped friend of mine was being taken advantage of by his spouse which clearly required some serious legal assistance. Bill Fanning and his staff were (and continue to be) fantastic! My friend, now divorced, has the means to live comfortably in his own house with a live-in caregiver - all due to the tireless efforts of Bill Fanning and staff. We are forever grateful. I HIGHLY recommend Bill Fanning for any/all your legal needs in Charles County."

— Earl T. Burton

"My husband and I used Mr. Fanning's services for two adoptions and we were very pleased with his personable demeanor, his efficiency, our questions and how he interacted with the family in general. He puts you at ease and makes you feel comfortable. We were equally pleased with his administrative staff as well."

"Gets things right."

— Dave Magnelli

It is without hesitation, that I highly recommend Bill Fanning and his office to all my friends!"

— Shelley Parsons Mitchell

"I cannot say enough good things about Mr. Fanning. He helped me get custody of my 19-month-old son in a situation where it probably could have gone either way. He was so calm and professional in front of the master while my child's mother's lawyer was rude and aggressive. He is not only an excellent attorney who truly cares about his clients and wants the very best for them, he is a really great guy. I would recommend his services to anyone looking for a lawyer in the southern Maryland area."

"William C. Fanning, Esq. is the best legal representative you will ever meet, if you’re lucky enough. No kidding or joking here, just facts. He truly is the best there is in Maryland, or in any state for that matter."

— Robin Madden

"Bill is an extremely knowledgeable, savvy, detailed oriented attorney that I would recommend without hesitation!"

"Mr. Fanning was great throughout both my cases that we won. I definitely recommend his services for anyone who wants to win a case."

"Fabulous in every way. Gets the job DONE!"

"If you want someone to tell you what you want to hear then don't see Mr. Fanning. If, however, you want someone to tell you the truth, your options, and potential outcomes then Mr. Fanning is the lawyer for you. I found him to be very thorough, assertive, and knowledgeable in his field. I have recommended him to several of my friends and will continue to do so."

"Bill is an excellent attorney. His team at Fanning Law is friendly and courteous.  He is the man you want representing you in Southern Maryland."

"Mr. Fanning and his office were excellent when I adopted my stepson. He was knowledgeable, and explained every facet of the process thoroughly.
