About me

I  am the managing partner of the Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP Virginia office.  Our Virgnia office is conveniently situated at the intersection of West Ox Rd., and Rte. 50 in Centerpointe II office building, 4000 Legato Rd., Fairfax, Va.


 I represent Virginia clients throughout Northern Virginia including Arlington County, Alexandria City, Loudoun and Prince William County courts. I also occasionally appear in Fauquier and Culpeper County courts.


 If your family matter involves any aspect of divorce including support, custody and visitation, equitable distribution of assets, retirement benefits including military benefits, pre and post-marital agreements, please consider our firm.


 I am trained in mediation, collaborative law and I am an experienced litigator when the need arises to try a case or any aspects of a family law matter.
