Barbara Greene, a partner at SBW Law, joined the firm in 2013.


Some of life’s greatest challenges are going through a divorce, custody battle or assuming guardianship of a loved one.  I am here to guide you through this process so that you can rebuild your life from a better place.


I concentrate in family law matters, specifically, divorce and child custody, adoptions and guardianships. I make a special effort to explain legal issues clearly and simply and to communicate with clients so that he or she understands their options at each stage of a proceeding. My settlement agreements are written in plain English so that that each party can understand what is expected of them and what they can expect from the other party.  My practice has taken me into courtrooms in almost every county in Maryland.


My legal career began in 1981 at Westinghouse, now known as Northrup Grumman, concentrating in government contracts law, copyright and trade secret matters.  Upon moving to Boston in 1987, I worked for Massachusetts Institute of Technology, where I continued to focus on copyright and trade secret issues (now known as intellectual property law) by negotiating technology licensing agreements with research sponsors.  I later opened my own practice in Massachusetts concentrating on software licensing and technology transfers for engineering and software companies. When I returned to Maryland in 2001, I wanted to expand my courtroom experience and changed the focus of my practice to family law matters and criminal defense. Since joining SBW Law, I now concentrate solely on divorce, custody, adoptions and guardianships.


My experience working for universities, a Fortune 500 company, start-up and high tech companies, government contractors and individuals has given me a wide breadth of experience and knowledge both with organizations, people and areas of the law. I am a member of both the Maryland and Massachusetts Bars and an active member of the Women’s Bar Association of Maryland, Maryland State Bar Association, Baltimore County and Baltimore City Bar Associations and a recipient of the Pro Bono Attorney of the Year by the Baltimore County Bar.  I am a 1977 graduate of Washington University in Saint Louis with a bachelor’s degree in History and a 1980 graduate of the University of Baltimore School of Law.
