Virginia was my divorce attorney. She worked closely with me, gave me great advice and was a strong support during some very trying times and personal lows. I could always count on her to be my advocate and most importantly, she fought to get me what I wanted. It was great to have an attorney that understood me, was compassionate and tough in the courtroom and with the other side.

Virginia Joehl is Brilliant! I was blessed to have Virginia represent me during one of the most difficult times of my life. I retained Hecht & Associates Law firm only days before my custody hearing. At the time, I was unsatisfied with my current representation, and needed an aggressive attorney to attend an expedited hearing with me to regain custody of my child. The circumstances surrounding my particular case were challenging and complex however Virginia did not bat an eye as she arrived to court confident and well prepared. She was professional, knowledgeable, and aggressive. Virginia was compassionate and effective in giving me the encouragement and confidence I needed at a time when I was not only an emotional wreck, but discouraged from my prior council. She listened, yet kept me focused. She was witty, yet audacious and I am thrilled to say that I was awarded primary custody of my child! I highly recommend Virginia to anyone needing representation in a child custody matter, as I am certain you will be satisfied with her level of commitment and expertise.

I found Virginia through the Montgomery County Women's Commission (MCWC) about 2 years before I was ready to proceed with my divorce. I attended the session at the MCWC then made an appointment to chat. She provided me with sound advice and recommended I return when I was ready. Sadly, I returned. With her able assistance, I planned my divorce and departure from MD. Virginia helped me to assemble a separation agreement that protected me and my interests while being mindful of my spouse. Although this was one of the most difficult decisions, I have made in my life, I am so thankful that I had Virginia helping me every step of the way. Since I no longer lived in Maryland, during the divorce process, Virginia and her staff were flexible and available whenever I called. I didn't even return to Maryland for the divorce hearing.
I highly recommend Virginia. I was impressed by her ability to hear what I perceived as potential challenges and her expert ways of addressing them. Her years of experience and compassion were apparent.
