"I believe in a fair fight. A fair fight requires zealous representation on both sides! Women have much-needed advocacy groups that provide legal representation to help them transition out of abusive relationships; however, the same level of organized support does not yet exist for men. I believe that many of the problems in our communities stem from children growing up without the balancing presence of both parents. Therefore, I will absolutely defend to the very end a father who wants to be involved in his child’s life."

Almost immediately, she realized that while there are a wide array of resources available to protect women’s rights in family law, men are often left out. Even worse, they frequently feel the need to overcome prejudices just to get a level playing field when it comes to issues such as custody, spousal support, and division of property. She noticed that men often make critical mistakes in the divorce process that lead to unintentional outcomes.
“Because men are so often the breadwinners in the family,” she explains, “they need a highly-skilled attorney with a financial background to help ensure that money judgments from the court are fair and equitable.”
Carmiece has the perfect background to protect clients’ interests in all types of family law cases.
After earning a Bachelor of Applied Science degree in Accounting, Carmiece Graves worked as a Senior Auditor in New York City. She was drawn to the field of law after seeing the disadvantages suffered in situations where individuals made decisions without understanding how to protect their rights.
She moved to Washington and earned her Juris Doctorate from Howard University School of Law in 2005, graduating at the top of her class. After she practiced in corporate finance with a large DC firm for several years, President Obama appointed her to serve as a policy advisor for the U.S. Department of the Interior.
When her term ended, she then turned her focus to working with individuals through her own practice. Carmiece takes great satisfaction in helping clients achieve their goals and protect their assets during life’s most challenging ordeals so that they emerge ready to move forward. In particular, she champions the importance of preserving relationships between fathers and their children.
Away from the office, Carmiece volunteers her time and expertise to support the work of several nonprofit organizations. She serves on the Board of the Prince George’s County Women’s Bar Association and has served as treasurer of the Howard University School of Law Alumni Club since 2013.
