Dawn R. Gould is a graduate of Hamline University School of Law in St. Paul, Minnesota. Dawn was first admitted to practice law in Maryland and the bulk of her legal career was as an Assistant State’s Attorney for the Frederick County State’s Attorney’s Child Support Division where she prosecuted contempt and violation of probation cases for failure to pay child support and conducted countless trials to establish paternity and to establish, modify, and enforce child support.
