We assist families with all aspects of adoptions whether direct adoptions, step parent adoption, or otherwise. We handle the legalities of your adoption, so you can concentrate on your new family.


Divorce should not lead to a financial crisis. We will help you receive an equitable amount of spousal support to live to the standard of living you were accustomed to during the marriage.

Child custody and visitation

We will protect your parental rights to raise your children in a fit and supportive home and assist in ensuring you receive an equitable and reasonable amount of parenting time with your children.

Child support

We can ensure you receive or pay an equitable and fair amount of the financial support required to raise your children in a healthy, happy home.

Child support modification and enforcement

Child support payments remain the same unless and until the court modifies the child support order. If either the custodial or the non-custodial parent experiences a significant change in circumstances, we can guide you through the proper legal procedures to modify child support payments accordingly and to enforce the payment of support from the payor.


Through mediation or litigation, we can help you gain equitable results from your divorce, including fair distribution of assets, division of the marital home, spousal support payments, child support payments, and child custody rights.

Juvenile Law

We are skilled at maneuvering through the complex laws of Virginia dealing with juveniles within the court system.

Prenuptial agreements

We draft premarital agreements that protect the interests of both spouses. A prenuptial agreement can alleviate much of the stress should you ever divorce.
