Attentive Counsel And Creative Solutions Are Hallmarks Of Our Law Practice

We focus exclusively on reaching resolution of critical family law issues for people across the cultural spectrum. Our legal team's knowledge and capabilities cover:

Divorce: We provide comprehensive divorce representation. We can explore the options that are best suited to helping you resolve your issues, including negotiation, mediation or litigation.

Child custody and visitation: We can help you identify your most important parenting goals and help you determine the path that can best help you achieve those goals.

Child support determinations: We can provide you with clear explanations of Virginia child support guidelines and defend your interests when deviations are proposed. We also pride ourselves on the skilled pursuit of justified modifications and enforcement actions.

Property division and spousal support: We provide financially savvy, determined representation for our clients in all areas of property distribution and spousal support.

Same-sex and unmarried couples: We provide informed, reliable counsel on the unique considerations that apply to both same-sex and heterosexual unmarried couples. From the formation of contracts governing property division should the relationship end to matters involving legal separation, we are here for you.

Post-divorce modifications: When you or your ex has experienced a material change in life's circumstances, it may be necessary to modify the terms of your custody, visitation and/or support decrees. Whether you are seeking a modification or your ex has requested a change, we can help you protect your interests.

Enforcing court orders: When someone fails to provide support, violates the terms of a custody agreement or disregards an order for property division, we can help hold them accountable by pursuing an enforcement action.

"The most critical skill any advocate or counselor can have is the ability to listen, to understand, and to support the client. In a situation as full of emotion as a family separation or divorce, it is even more critical. Donna has this skill in abundance." — M.A. Read more testimonials here.
