cummins-alisaAlisa Gross Cummins has been practicing law for more than 25 years and focuses her practice on the long-term effects of family law  disputes.

A graduate of Case Western Reserve University and the University of Maryland Francis King Carey Law School, Cummins is a member/partner at Davis, Agnor, Rapaport & Skalny, LLC.

In 1999, Cummins established her own practice, which eventually became the foundation for a successful boutique family law practice “… born of my passion for getting to know each of my clients, and tailoring my work to their specific needs and objectives.”

After nearly 20 years, Cummins joined forces with colleagues and dear friends with whom she’s collaborated for decades as a partner in her current firm.

“I am incredibly proud of the practice I have built, and even more proud of the relationships I have made along the way,” she said.

Even though family law is complex and intellectually demanding, Cummins said she has to put the people at the heart of the cases first.

“I believe the balance I strike between the two has served to ‘raise the bar’ in the practice of family law,” she said.

Early in her career, Cummins’ community service was often centered around her children. She served on the board of their preschool and as a cultural arts guest-teacher, for instance.

More recently, she graduated from Leadership Howard County in 2014, which opened up opportunities to engage with members of her community outside the legal arena. She was recently asked to serve on the board of Maryland Search and Rescue.

She’s worked with Maryland Volunteer Lawyers Service, the Howard County Family Law Assistance Program and the Attorney Mediation Program at the Circuit Court for Baltimore City. She’s also served in various roles through the Howard County Bar Association.

Cummins was also recently appointed to serve on the Maryland Chapter of the Ambassador Board of the Association of Family and Conciliation Courts.

“I am incredibly proud of the practice I have built, and even more proud of the relationships I have made along the way.”
