Emphasis

I joined Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP in January of 2014 as an attorney and partner in the family law department with the goal of helping client& finding solutions and moving forward in their lives, preserving assets and their relatonships post-divorce. I manage our Virginia office which is conveniently located at the intersection of Rte. 50 and West Ox Road in Fairfax, Virginia. My Virginia-based law practice continues to be focused on all aspects of divorce, including spousal support, child support, custody and visitation, preparation of separation and property settlement agreements, drafting of premarital and post-marital agreements and division of retirement benefits for military and privately-funded 401(k) and IRA plans. My trial work includes all aspects of litigated family law matters in both the Circuit and Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Courts throughout northern Virginia, including Fairfax, Loudoun, Prince William, Arlington Counties and Alexandria City. I handle contested divorce cases (support, custody and visitation cases and equitable distribution cases) and post-divorce modification. My approach when working with clients on these very personal family law matters is to become a trusted counselor and advisor in addition to providing the text book legal advice and in court representation. My background in psychology on both the undergraduate and graduate levels, enables me to empathize with my client's situation. I am sensitive to the fact that it takes time to understand and assimilate the facts of the case from my client's perspective. Since 2000 my practice has been exclusively focused on Virginia Family Law and Domestic Relations litigation. I am also trained as a family mediator and collaborative law attorney. Please contact me at our Virginia office at 4000 Legato Rd., 11th fl., Fairfax, Va. 22033. I am rated A/V, the highest rating given by Martindale-Hubbell; Peer Review Ratings;for my legal ability and high ethical standards. I have been fortunate to have been named among Virginia Business magazine Legal Elite since 2009 andrepeatedly listed among Northern Virginia Top Lawyers in The Northern Virginia Magazine. Since 2006 I have also repeatedly been nominated by my peers for inclusion in both the Virginia Super Lawyers- Family Law section and the Washington D.C. Super Lawyers - Family Law section.

Prior to joining Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP I was a partner in the family law section of Odin, Feldman & Pittleman (1999 - 2013).  Prior to that, I practiced law at my own firm in a general practice setting for 12 years.
