About Kristen

Learn Kristen’s areas of practice.



Kristen knew she wanted to be an attorney from a young age, following in the footsteps of her grandfather and great-grandfather. Born and raised in Westchester, New York, she attended John F. Kennedy Catholic Preparatory School and then Liberty University, earning her Bachelor of Science in Psychology with a focus in Adult Development in 2010 and her Juris Doctor in 2013.

During law school, Kristen interned in the legal department of a New York City- based health insurance company, assisting counsel in legal projects and became familiar with HIPAA and HITECH. She subsequently earned her Third Year Practice Certificate, which enabled her to practice law with the local Commonwealth Attorney’s Office under the supervision of the attorneys there. Prior to graduating law school, she was able to assist in the prosecution of low-level offenses and begin honing her litigation skills.

Kristen joined The Reed Law Firm as an associate in 2014, where her primary practice areas included divorce and family law matters, as well as other civil litigation matters, traffic cases and criminal defense. She has also served as a Guardian ad Litem, representing and advocating for the needs of children in the community.

Kristen joined Tobias Iszard in 2023, where she concentrates her practice on family law, including divorce, annulments, custody, visitation, support and adoption.

Kristen is a member of the Virginia State Bar, the Prince William County Bar Association and the Alexandria Bar Association. She has proven herself to be a diligent and effective advocate, as evidenced by her client reviews and her reputation amongst her peers. She zealously advocates for her clients, striving for the best possible outcomes whether through settlement or litigation.

So grateful!
Working with Kristen was an absolute breeze. She was very knowledgeable, able to answer all our questions, and guide us through a difficult process in a way that made us feel it wasn’t actually difficult at all. Kristen helped our dreams come true and my husband was able to legally adopt my son! Now our family is complete.

Our Family is Whole because of Kristen!
Because of Kristen, our family was able to go through a step-parent adoption and legal name change for our children whom have a biological parent who has opted to be out of the picture. What could have been stressful and emotional, was pleasantly neither of those things. She kept in contact and was always updating and making sure our needs were being met! We are so thankful for her help and will always be appreciative of her sewing up the loose ends for our family.

Awesome Child Custody Lawyer
I am very grateful to have been placed with Kristen for my custody case. I felt as if I was living in the Twilight Zone during my case due to the actions of the other parent. While unique to me and very stressful, Kristen was always on top of what needed done. She was reassuring during the 7 months of ongoing nonsense and always made me feel like she had things taken care of. She was quick to deal with any issues and very accommodating when I needed to reach her urgently. I was very impressed with her court performance. She was thorough and quick to act on opposing counsel. I would describe her as a bulldog in the courtroom. Nothing was missed and she was able to really show the court the truth. I couldn't have done this without her!

Highly Recommend!
I am so happy with my decision to choose Ms. Yurkowski to assist me with my name change. I thought that the process would be time consuming and stressful but she took care of absolutely everything for me. She kept in contact with me the entire time and always kept me up to date during the process. Also, I can't believe how fast she was able to get it done! I definitely recommend!

Amazing Attorney!
Kristen was hired after my previous attorney unexpectedly moved away. I loved Kristen from the moment I met her! She was so attentive & understanding and really made me feel valued and really seemed to care about our case. I appreciated her honestly & her willingness to do whatever it took for my child custody case. If I ever need legal help again in the future, she is definitely someone I would turn to again!

I met and hired Kristen for my divorce in 2018. During the meeting, she was straight forward, explained the procedures for the divorce and did not waste my time or money. Throughout the proceedings, Kristen kept me up to date, so I did not have to inquire as to the status of the divorce. She was very quick to reply to my emails or take my calls (even on the weekends or off hours). I hope it never happens, but if any of my friends unfortunately have to go through a divorce, without a doubt, I would recommend Kristen to assist in that endeavor.

The best divorce lawyer
I hired Kristen Yurkowski to handle my divorce whole she was at the Reed Lawfirm and followed her to Nealon and associates. At every turn of the corner she kept me well informed and prepared for what was ahead. She was both compassionate and encouraging and I would recommend her to anyone who is going through a divorce. This is a life altering moment in time for you and Kristen will smooth out the path and make it easier.

Great Experience
My experience with Kristen was great! She was efficient, responsive, and had solutions to unexpected items that came up in my divorce case. I have already recommended her to a few people and will continue to do so!

Incredible Attorney
The entire staff was largely very professional and courteous through out the whole process. My attorney was Kristen Yurkowski and she was on top of the job. I was always able to reach her and get a timely response even after hours or on the weekends. She showed compassion to my situation and offered correct alternate advice against what I was feeling to do out of emotion. There was even a time when I was having financial difficulties and she helped put together a plan in which she could continue to represent me. Honestly and overall, I owe my life to her as her representation awarded me EVERYTHING that I was challenging in divorce court. Which as we all know for a male is a staggering task. I whole heartily recommend Kristen Yurkowski for any legal issues as she is an outstanding attorney and human being.

Great Family Lawyer- Great Firm- Excellent Service!
I had a wonderful experience with Ms. Kristen Yurkowski ! Let me first state how caring, professional and patient Ms. Yurkowski along with the Reed Law Firm are. I was in immediate need of a family lawyer and stumbled across the Reed Law Firm. I called and someone patiently listened to the concerns of my case. I was then scheduled for a consultation and there I was introduced to Ms. Kristen Yurkowski! My life saver!! She took the time to LISTEN to me as emotional as I was! She was patient, kind, and allowed me a break when I got overwhelmed. She explained her position thoroughly. Most of all she made me feel COMFORTABLE & CONFIDENT during this process! She even FOLLOWS-UP!!!!!!!!!! I wish NO ONE has to go through the ugliness of family law BUT if you do.....Please contact Ms. Yurkowski/The Reed Law Firm! She is truly wonderful and I am happy to have been a client!

Excellent Service!
This is the second time I've used Reed Law Firm and have had a great experience in both cases. This last time Kristen represented me for a family law case and was attentive, aggressive, and was always sure I was well informed with the process and approach to working my case. My retainer was well worth it. I have already recommended a co worker to the Reed Law firm with similar issues. Im confident he will receive the same excellent service I did.

Great Divorce Attorny
Kristin was amazing from the consultation through the entire process of divorce. What had started as an ugly mess between my ex-wife and I over custody of our daughter became a very easy process. She was detailed on every area, beyond my expectations. The best part about her was that she was able to delicately handle the process and allowed us to resolve our issues with next to no court time or costs. I have already recommended her to friends.

A Great Experience!
Ms. Yurkowski did an outstanding job in handling my divorce. She was extremely professional and very responsive. All of my questions were answered immediately, and I was always made to feel like I was her top priority. She made a difficult situation much more tolerable, and I will always be grateful to her.
