Our firm dedicates itself to addressing the needs of our clients. We doggedly solve problems for our clients, whether through advice and counsel, negotiation, or litigation. Clients in need of representation find our attorneys to be tough, knowledgeable, creative, and fair, but most importantly devoted to protecting their rights and pursuing their legal interests.
We recognize that our clients all come from different means, and we strive to provide cost-effective representation. For example, prospective clients who are concerned about their rights as employees can obtain a flat-fee consultation that includes review of relevant documents, a complete breakdown of Virginia and federal employment law, and an explanation of the employee’s options.
For executives or management needing advice on the negotiation of a severance package, in most cases, our attorneys are able to review and advise in a flat-fee consultation. Employers can receive a quick tutorial to get their businesses into compliance with the law. We can provide assistance in preparing employee handbooks, conduct third party investigations into alleged employee misconduct, and act as an “on call” resource if a contracts, human resources, or other business-related issue arises.
Personal injury and medical malpractice can be permanent, life altering events for the victim. We recognize the sensitive nature of these cases and our attorneys strive to ensure the best representation possible during these difficult times. Our firm can advise a client as to their options, negotiate on their behalf, and if necessary, file a law suit to ensure you recover what you’ve lost.
Our attorneys can help you navigate the many aspects of family law including divorce, protective orders, support and custody. Whether you need to negotiate a prenuptial agreement or a property settlement agreement we will ensure your rights are protected.
Our team also practices in a variety of other matters, including family law, tax-exempt organizations, estate and trust planning, administration and litigation, trademark and copyright law and the like. You can learn more about our practice areas and information on consultations and fee structure can be found on our FAQ page.
