Virginia understands that family law issues are often intensely personal and all-encompassing for her clients. She strives to resolve every client’s legal matter in a way that achieves the client’s desired outcome in a timely and cost-effective manner.

Family relationships and the legal issues that result from them can be complex and nuanced, and family law cases require careful strategy and a deep understanding of the law.

Virginia is committed to providing clarity and a well-reasoned plan of action to her clients. She recognizes that there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution, and she works closely with each client to understand their unique circumstances so that together they can formulate a plan to achieve the client’s goals. When appropriate, Virginia will promote alternative dispute resolutions to keep matters out of court, including negotiation, mediation, and arbitration.

With over a decade of experience in family law litigation, Virginia’s clients benefit from her analytical and strategic approach to their files. They appreciate her zealous advocacy both in and outside the courtroom, her adaptability and agility in responding to rapidly evolving situations, along with her ability to anticipate potential issues with the file or from the opposing party.
