As a native of Northern Virginia, I have here focused my practice on providing sound and balanced representation to clients navigating the difficult legal waters of family law, including contested divorce, custody, support, and equitable distribution.  My persuasive style has been well received in courtrooms throughout Virginia, Maryland and the District of Columbia, and is sustained by a body of experience sufficient to deliver sophisticated results for my clients.  In 2015, for example, through negotiation or litigation, my firm handled the equitable distribution of more than half a billion dollars in assets.  Television and radio personalities, professional athletes, tech company founders, and politicians have consulted with the firm.  I have personally represented clients in Maryland and the District of Columbia who control eight-figure family asset portfolios and clients in Virginia who control nine-figure family asset portfolios.  We regularly receive client referrals from large Washington, D.C. law firms and other divorce lawyers in the metropolitan area.    
    
My professional experience includes practicing alongside the partners of several of Northern Virginia’s most prestigious boutique family law firms and serving as a clerk for the judges of the U.S. Tax Court.  My legal acumen has been recognized by my inclusion in Forbes Magazine, Self Magazine, Washingtonian Magazine, Northern Virginia Magazine, Washington Business Journal, Super Lawyers, and Ten Leaders in the Law, among other publications.  

 I am also the author of the popular Virginia Family Law Blog:  www.familylawva.com.

I am 2 years out and thankful to Jason that I am not paying alimony (which apparently is not the case for most men.) Talking to friends who have been through the nuclear holocaust of divorce express that for that reason they are never truly finished with the ordeal. I can happily say that I'm truly finished. Thanks again Jason.

Outstanding Representation
It had been seven years since the divorce when I turned to Jason to handle my request to modify/ terminate spousal support. Throughout the process, starting with our initial consultation to the final decision by the judge, he demonstrated exceptional expertise together with strong interpersonal skills. His outstanding representation resulted in my case being decided much in my favor. I recommend him highly.

Phenomenal Lawyer
Jason A. Weis is the perfect pick! If you are someone who is going through a contentious child support/divorce and need a top notch lawyer on your side then look no further. I was lucky to have Jason Weis representing me. Jason, has the ability to assess any difficult situation and provide honest and thorough advice within the scope of the law that is beneficial to the client. Mr. Weis effortlessly navigated through the minefields that my ex-wife and opposing counsel attempted to lay out. Jason was able to understand the intricacies of my case and responded with a strategic yet realistic action plan that awarded me the outcome my daughter and I needed. I admire Mr. Weis’s calm, professional and eloquent demeanor. He did not wavier to the baseless threats or irate behavior of opposing council but rather took charge and spoke only based on facts. I truly believe it was Mr. Weis’s professionalism, knowledge, patience and most importantly his virtuous heart that got me through this challenging time. I am eternally grateful and would recommend Mr. Weis to anyone who is seeking assistant with divorce/child support/custody.

Highly competent attorney
Jason handled my very messy divorce. Complicated custody situation, property disputes, police reports, CPS, custody evaluation - just to name a few things that we had to deal with. Jason always had the situation under control. He will never promise you results that he cannot guarantee, he is very realistic and practical. In the end, Jason was a superstar during the trial. He had an impressive mastery of all the confusing facts related to my case and ultimately I got the result that I've was looking for on all accounts. Jason's team is also very professional and easy to deal with. Highly recommend!

Lifesaver
Five years ago, when I was entering a high conflict divorce battle, Jason was recommended to me by a reputable attorney. During the very first consultation, Jason appeared to be trustworthy, smart, professional and yet, personable. I had no desire to look further. Jason has been my lawyer for over five years representing me before three different county courts. He was available to discuss any issue 24/7! He won every case (we had a lot!!!) in both trial and appellate courts. I always felt that Jason was a godsend and I have been so blessed to have him by my side. There are no words to express my gratitude to him personally nor to the firm’s team that is equally very professional and supportive.

Terrific team with a personal touch
I can't speak highly enough of Jason Weis and his team. They did a wonderful job from the word "go" in simplifying and walking me through a challenging and convoluted divorce process. Curran Moher Weis is among the top family law firms in Virginia for a reason, and Jason and his team are significant contributors to their success story. I would give my unconditional recommendation for Jason as an attorney; he's personable and efficient, takes his work seriously, and I found him and his team to be both accessible and responsive.

Knowledgeable, efficient, cogent in his arguments, questions, and prep!
Jason has been and continues to be great counsel. My case had already been through substantial litigation by the time I came across Jason. From day 1 he was and always is prepared, well researched, has done his homework. He is able to maintain clear arguments thru and with lots of conflicting detail... he is able to follow the bouncing ball in spite of chaff from the opposing side. He is good in the courtroom, able to keep focus through ridiculously convoluted and complex issues. He is assertive but not combative and knows when to turn it up a notch to deal with a tough, non cooperative witness. He keeps my focus and helps me not lose the Forrest thru the trees. High conflict divorce and custody matters are ridiculously expensive and he responsibly manages cost as best he can, but knows when to spend the time and be as thorough as necessary to hit the homer. My trials and tribulations will continue I am sure, and I can't think of better counsel to have in my corner. Without a doubt I recommend him!

I was looking to protect my children's interest - Jason delivered much more!
I could not be happier with my divorce! I'm sure that's not something many people say. However, Jason and his associate Steven Goldman really listened to my needs and priorities. My only priority was protecting my children. In that vein, I was want to drag my (volatile, difficult) ex to court. Although I felt we could "win" in court, "winning" was never the point. The point was providing a loving, stable home for my children and a drawn-out court case was not going to benefit them. That said, did I mention that my ex is "difficult"? Hiring Jason, a well known litigator, to settle my case would ensure I was prepared go to court if needed. We tried exchanging documents, but were met with slow responses and backtracking on the other side. Eventually, we filed. Mediation had been mentioned, but I was concerned that a mediator would just be looking at "middle ground" and not what's best for the children. In addition, I had tried mediation through a counselor before I hired Jason and it went nowhere. Once we filed, the opposing attorney pressed for mediation and Steven (mediation expert) convinced me that it was worth a try. The retired judge who mediated was of course knowledgeable, but also very caring and considered. I truly felt he had the best interest of my children at heart. Both Jason & Steven came to the day of mediation and each provided a unique perspective based on their litigation and mediation experiences. I felt prepared and well-informed for any outcome. Working with the retired judge, Jason & Steven came up with a creative solution which not only solved the immediate visitation issues, but also provided for "what if...". They held firm to protect my interests and the kids, sometimes without even consulting me. They worked late into the evening to make sure we did not walk away without a signed settlement and during that LONG day, neither of them multi-tasked or worked on any other case. They were entirely focused on me and my case. When I walked into Jason's office, I was looking for someone to protect my children. When I walked away from mediation, I knew that Jason & Steven had not only secured the best possible solution for my children, they had seen a need I hadn't verbalized and taken care of ME along the way. I am deeply grateful to them and if this agreement doesn't go according to plan, they will be the only ones I would call.

Highly Recommend
Jason provided sound advice in a professional manner. He is extremely efficient and timely with all interactions. I had high expectations as a divorce can be a difficult situation. Jason helped me address all my issues expediently and completely. He was an outstanding advocate for my financial issues during the divorce and also was considerate of his own expenses.

Outstanding Counselor
I have worked with a lot of attorney’s over the years, but Jason Weis sets the standard of what an attorney and counselor should be. He was always professional and prompt. He was able to sift through a huge amount of complex financial data spanning a marriage of over 25 years and present a cogent defense that put my future back on track during a very difficult time. I highly recommend him and his firm. Everyone was professional and caring and I felt like I was the only client.

Excellent Service
Jason drew up a prenup agreement for me. He listened to what my needs were and provided an agreement in short order that needed only minor adjustments. My adjustments were incorporated quickly which I needed in order to meet my short time frame. He was very professional and cooperative and I would definitely recommend him to others.

AWESOME
During my two combat tours to Iraq, I deployed with enough personal armor, weapons, training and operational intelligence that helped me prepare in order to protect my life. During my divorce Jason had become my armor, weapons and operational intelligence that protected me from the battles and eventually a nuclear war with my ex-wife. He always kept his cool, ALWAYS took my calls and took the time to explain the situation. It was a bit expensive but worth it. Thank you Jason

Smooth Sailing
Jason handled my divorce, which was not a complex one, in a very smooth manner. He explained the process, advised me on my choices and responded very quickly to questions I had. He kept my exposure and his expenses to a minimum. Any divorce has the potential to grow into a major conflict, thankfully that didn't happen to me.

OUTSTANDING Results in Divorce/Separation matter
Jason is NOT your typical attorney - he does his homework, is very well prepared, and not afraid to take a stand on issues or aspects of the process. He gives you his reasoned opinion, and the background for his decision, and doesn't hide behind "on the one hand....and on the other hand" ploys. Also has a keen sense of the practical vs. the academic; has no problem stating that XYZ may be the stated procedural step, but in reality, such a move will infuriate a judge or jury. If you're unfortunate enough to be facing a separation or divorce, do yourself a huge favor and remove at least one stress from your life - hire Jason, and stop searching for counsel. You will look back on that decision months, and years, from now, and thank God you had Jason on your side.

Results oriented, thorough, grounded, and supportive legel counsel
Jason Weis has represented me in my family law matters and divorce case. I would like to commend Jason on his dedication and professionalism. While my divorce did not involve many assets (real or financial) other than marital residence and retirement accounts, it dealt with the most important thing in my life – my daughter. Jason’s dedication to ensuring that the custody and property divisions were in line with my wishes was consistent and unyielding. Even when I was willing to concede on points, Jason ensured that these decisions were truly in my best interest and supported our overall end states. At no point in the divorce was there anything that surprised or caught Jason off guard. Even in heightened emotional states for me, he was always there to keep perspective and offer guidance and advice focusing my decision-making. Jason never allowed opposing counsel to fabricate information in an attempt to gain ground and was top notch in negotiations. Much of the opposing party/counsels arguments were relegated to total insignificance. While my case was resolved outside of litigation, I have no doubt that had things progressed we would have achieved all I desired and more. Jason’s rates were both fair and well justified, and honestly, the best money I have ever spent. Today my daughter and I can move forward with our lives, which outside of Jason’s counsel might not have been as favorable or even possible. Further, the rest of the staff at his law firm are all very professional, prompt, and were helpful in any administrivia that ensued. Thank you Jason and to all of your staff, I am indebted and owe you much gratitude.

Patience is Jason's hallmark
I chose Jason's current firm to handle my highly contested divorce and child custody case based on AV ratings and publications. On my initial consultation one of the partners suggested that Jason would be an excellent representative for my needs. He was absolutely right. As others have said, Jason is a superb advocate compassionate, efficient, caring and professional. Jason is also remarkably patient: both with his client and opposing counsel. In my case Jason's counterpart proved to be very inexperienced with Virginia divorce law and it made an already challenging situation even more difficult. Jason did what needed to be done to advocate for me while making sure counsel was prepared enough to not delay the process unduly. It was frustrating, frankly, as a former attorney myself to watch and Jason was just as patient with me. Secondly, certain aspects of my case were unusual, including certain peculiarities of my current job (pensions, domicile) and the possibility of international child custody issues. Although Jason was not necessarily familiar with these issues in the beginning, he was upfront about it, allowed me the time to educate him and I've been so confident in his ability to work on these issues that I have recommended him to colleagues and even suggested he develop a niche clientele. Lastly, Jason is extremely judicious in most instances with costs. As mentioned in an earlier review he will give you an honest assessment of what your case or action will likely cost and work with you to address the unexpected. When I encountered a minor billing snafu and one major one, Jason quickly remedied the issue and it did not affect his professionalism. In short, I would not hesitate to recommend Jason to my closest friends and associates-- I already have. And I certainly expect to work with him in the future on follow up with my current case as well as other business I may need to undertake on estate planning, etc, in the future.

Met my Expectations
I came to Mr. Weis at the lowest point in my life. The end of my marriage of 16 years due to my wife's infidelities. Mr. Weis helped me secure a great settlement in record time. I would recommend Mr. Weis to any one going through a divorce or in need of great legal counsel.

I highly recommend Jason Weis
I highly recommend Jason Weis. I came to Mr. Weis during the most difficult days of my life. He was professional, smart, confident, caring and trustworthy. He was the only lawyer I could trust to handle my case and from the very beginning, I had total confidence that he would do anything in his power to help me. He not only helped me get through the process of divorce with the best possible outcome, but he also worked closely with my immigration attorney to make sure I got the best legal presentation in the immigration court. He knew what I was looking for and by proving that my ex. husband committed adultery, he made my immigration case go very smoothly. There were nights I had no hope for my future, but knowing that I had a lawyer who really cared and worked so hard on my case gave me the strength to fight for my future. If it wasn’t because of Mr. Weis, I don’t know where I would be right now. Again, I highly recommend Jason Weis to anyone who is looking for a knowledgeable, smart, and honest attorney.
