A Keen Focus on Family Law

We are dedicated to redefining the family law practice. Simply put, we put family first. Now, don't think that just because we value family that we aren't willing to do what needs to be done. On the contrary, we work diligently to achieve our clients' ultimate goals. Our approach, however, is to help make certain that what you think you want is what you really need. After all, you are looking for any attorney not an order taker, right? You need someone who is knowledgable and fearless, someone who is dedicated to you and your needs.

If all you need is a simple uncontested (no fault) divorce in Virginia, we have several options available ranging from our cheap online divorce option (Frugal Legal Services is offered in all Virginia cities/counties and starts at an all-inclusive price of just $350.00!to a more personalized approach in our office. Even then, we know you aren't interested in spending a lot of money. Of course, you want competent legal representation, but let's be real, when it's all said and done, you are looking for the lowest cost divorce attorney possible.

If you need help with a child custody or visitation matter, we have a multitude of options available for you. Maybe you and your child's father (or mother) have reached an agreement on custody but don't know where to turn. We have you covered there as well. For a fair flat rate fee, we can process everything for you without you even stepping foot in a courtroom. If you can't reach an agreement, we can lay out your options and help you move toward your goal. We are compassionate, but brutally honest. We don't try and convince you we can accomplish something we can't just to take your money. That being the case, we fight until the end. We do what it takes to get the job done!

We offer individual meetings by appointment, with teleconferences after hours and on weekends depending on your individual needs. To help you determine whether you need a lawyer, we offer free introductory consultations. Please read our frequently asked questions for more detailsWe have additional information on family law related matters on our blog.

Quality Legal Representation for a Flat Fee?

We offer a flat fee billing option for many services we provide, including some contested legal matters. What does this mean for you? Simply put, you can call without worrying about how much we charge by the minute and you can rest assured that we are working diligently toward a resolution in your case. This helps align the interests of the lawyer and his or her client in a way billable hours cannot.

If you prefer we bill by the hour and track each phone call, copy, and email, we will. No fees are hidden and everything will be disclosed every step of the way. We think you will find, however, that a flat-fee approach to billing just makes more sense for most people.

This approach frees our clients from financial worries. You will know up front what your legal services will cost. Visit Frugal Legal Services for information on our low cost online divorce options! There is additional information located on our uncontested divorce page as well.
