Family Law:

The majority of the firm’s practice is devoted to Family Law matters including Divorce, Marital/Property Agreements, Spousal Support, Child Custody, Child Support, Abuse and Neglect, Visitation, Adoption, Child Entrustment, Child Protective Services Issues and Appeals and Name Changes. Free half (½) hour consultations available: contact us Telephone: 703.815.0000

An Uncontested Divorce is available for parties who are able to agree upon their property, support and custody issues. It is also an option when there is no property to divide regardless of where the other spouse may be located. Attorney’s fees can be limited in these cases.

Contested Divorce, Custody, Visitation or Support matters involve hearings and an uncertain number of Court appearances. These matters are complex and often emotions run high. Court hearings can be mentally, physically and financially draining. We’ll guide you through the division of property, discuss the impact of sole and shared custody, legal and physical custody arrangements and visitation options so you can make informed decisions for your family.

Sometimes a contested matter can be negotiated without sacrificing a client.s best interests; we’ll use our best effort to mediate. When we can help clients save assets for themselves and their children through a settlement rather than pay higher attorney’s fees, a referral from that happy client is always a better result.

Personal Injury:

The firm handles Personal Injury cases, security and a helpful hand is what we provide. We deal with insurance companies in an effort to secure the most compensation for your loss. This leaves you free to concentrate on getting the medical care you need. The Commonwealth of Virginia grants you two (2) years before you have to file suit so you have time to heal and assess your damages.

Personal Injury has changed in the last few years. What can you expect if you have minor or major injuries, are medical payments are available under any applicable insurance policies, what about lost wages? A half-hour consultation with us will provide you with the information you need.
