Since its founding in 1979, the firm's first priority has been its clients. We strive to serve each client faithfully, expertly and completely, whether that client is a large corporation, a small business or an individual. We understand that law is a service profession and make every effort to deliver services to our clients in accordance with the highest standards. Fair and flexible billing practices are central to the relationship we have with every client.
Each of the firm's lawyers emphasizes one or more area of law; we have well established practices in civil litigation, commercial real estate, condemnation, personal injury, product liability and wrongful death litigation, land use, education and local government law, family law, creditor's rights, estate planning and general business matters. Our practice regularly covers the entire Northern Virginia Region, and we frequently are involved in work throughout the Commonwealth and beyond.
