About Anthony

Learn Anthony’s areas of practice.

My litigation practice is focused in the areas of divorce and family law.  I understand that divorce is one of the most stressful events a person will undergo during their lives.  With that in mind, I strive to maintain prompt communication with clients and to keep clients informed throughout the process.  

I am licensed to practice law in the Commonwealth of Virginia.  I am a member of the Fairfax and Loudoun County Bar Association and the Virginia State Bar.  I also maintain the firm's blog: Virginia Family Law Resource (www.virginiafamilylawresource.com).

I currently serve as Chief of Stonewall Jackson Volunteer Fire and Rescue Department (SJVFD) in Manassas, Virignia.  In addition I am a member of the Board of Directors and the Executive Board of the Prince William County Fire and Rescue Association.  I am also chair of the Training Advisory Committee and member of the Uniform Rank Committee.

I work with clients throughout Northern Virginia.  My firm maintains offices in Leesburg, Fairfax and Fredericksburg which gives us flexibility in meeting with our clients.

Estate Planning
My wife and I needed some help updating our will and trust. Mr. Cooch walked us through the process, answered all of our questions with confidence, and took care of our needs. The experience was painless.

Responsive and Professional
I had a very good experience using Anthony Cooch in my visitation case. He was professional and helpful. He gave me continuous updates. He was quick to answer my calls. Anthony was able to work with the other side and we worked out a great result. I will definitely call on him again if I have to.

Fantastic Attorney
Mr. Tony is a really good lawyer. My situation was a Protective Order case which was brought in family court and also custody, visitation and support. Mr. Tony was referred to me by a friend at work. We met a few times and talked about my situation and the things I was worried about as well as what could happen in court. Went to court, things went by pretty quickly and I won. Mr. Tony was very clear with me regarding the possible outcomes in my case. He answered all of my questions regarding my concerns and questions. During the whole process, I felt like I knew what was coming because we had talked about it beforehand. I will recommend him to anyone else that needs a lawyer.

Excellent Work
I used Anthony to help me with a case in juvenile court. I decided to hire him after speaking with a few other attorneys. He made me feel at ease when I met with him and I could tell right away that he knew what he was talking about. We ended up working out a settlement that I was really happy with. Thanks!

Recommend This Divorce Attorney
I contacted Mr. Cooch and his firm for legal services necessitated by a separation and inevitable divorce. His performance was beyond expectations. The preparation and quality of the presentation of my case showed me that he truly understood my position. As some of these other reviews have stated, going through a divorce was one of the most stressful things I have ever been through. I had so many other things to deal with, the last thing I wanted to worry about was my attorney. With Mr. Cooch, I never felt I had to worry. He did what he said he would do. I recommend this lawyer.

Positive Experience
Found Anthony Cooch through a recommendation from a friend and used him as my lawyer for my separation from my wife. Custody went in my favor. Property also went my way. Anthony Cooch fulfilled my expectations and more when it comes to a lawyer. I was quite satisfied with his work on my case.

Thank You For the Excellent Job - Recommend
Early last year, my husband and I went through a very hostile divorce case. I reviewed and spoke to a number of attorneys in Fairfax and chose Tony. For me, the decision of which attorney is very personal and I was looking for someone who would listen to me (I talk a lot) and give me positive feedback while not giving me false hope. Tony met all the criteria and stayed true throughout my case. I never felt rushed or as if he didn't have time to take my calls. I was really impressed with the speed in which he would get back to me (I called a lot). In the end, things worked out really well for me. I will tell you honestly that Tony is a great attorney. i am so glad I found him and that he was able to help me. I strongly recommend him

Made things as easy as could be
Mr. Cooch helped me with a painful divorce from a pretty long term marriage. I had heard that with kids and houses divorce can get pretty messy and mine was sure headed that way, but he took charge and really made a difference. He got me a real good result that I don't think I could have otherwise gotten.

Highly Recommend - Divorce
Anthony and his team made a difficult situation as seamless and easy as possible. After 18 years of marriage my wife and I decided to divorce, as you can imagine, there was a lot to work through; children, a home, vehicles, finances, personal belongings. Anthony was very detailed and caring in his approach. He professionally guided us through emotional and trying times. You could feel he really cared and wanted to help. Two years later my ex-wife and I are very comfortable with the decisions we made during this process.

A very hard case
I have been very pleased with the job Mr Cooch has done working with me on my case. Throughout the entire process Mr. Cooch kept me very well informed and always represented my best interests. My case was very difficult and at times confusing, but well handled by Mr. Cooch. If I need representation in the future, I will be going back to seek the advice of Mr Cooch.

Highly Recommend
I would hire Mr Cooch anytime . He was able to help me through a tough divorce and thanks to him it ended well for both parties. Mr Cooch was very upfront with all issues I had to deal with and never led me to make a decision he was not confident he could win. I trust Mr Cooch as a great Lawyer and also as a Volunteer Firefighter under him as he is also the Chief of the Department.

I dont know what i woudl ahve done without his help

Usually You want to be advised right and told with clarity the options, consequences, fees, timelines etc. That doesn't happen here just stay away.

No Response
I emailed, called, emailed, emailed and called and never heard back from him. I spoke with his legal secretary and she was always available and responsive but never from the attorney whom after our initial contact thought he would be able to do the job! Now I have to wait for a refund.
