Areas of Practice

Charlottesville family lawyers providing solid representation

We have extensive experience in the negotiation and trial of your divorce and family law matters, including:
  • Uncontested divorce — The quickest, easiest, and least expensive way to dissolve your marriage is through an uncontested divorce.
  • Child support — Although Virginia has statutory guidelines for child support, the court has the discretion to deviate upwards or downwards based on various factors. We pursue results that reflect your financial reality and serve the best interests of your children.
  • Child custody and visitation — A judge who doesn’t know you or your family must have proper guidance to render decisions that impact your children’s future. We present the court with specific, relevant facts to consider when determining what child custody arrangement serves the best interests of your children.
  • Spousal support — Whether you pay or receive support, alimony is one of the most important issues affecting your future. We advocate strongly for your interests to help you avoid financial hardship.
  • Premarital agreements — If you are planning to be married, we can help you negotiate and draft fair, reasonable premarital agreements that secure your property rights.
We are adept at negotiating practical solutions, but if litigation becomes necessary, you can have confidence in our courtroom skills and our resolve to deliver positive results.
