About Katherine

Learn Katherine’s areas of practice.

Katherine M. Fogarty is a skilled and successful litigator with a great deal of trial experience. She started her career trying cases even before she became an attorney—preparing cases and appearing in court as a third year law school student- then trying personal injury jury trials shortly after becoming a licensed attorney. Many domestic relations attorneys do not have this deep trial experience, making Ms. Fogarty especially prepared to represent her clients in court.

Ms. Fogarty has been involved in many difficult cases—most recently three child custody cases where relocation was an issue.

Along with her work at KFFJ Law, Ms. Fogarty has served as a Neutral Case Evaluator for the Fairfax County Circuit Court. This is a free service provided by the court to help people settle their personal injury or domestic relations cases through the use of a neutral party—an experienced attorney who can facilitate the settlement.

Ms. Fogarty is a long time resident of Northern Virginia, having attended Fairfax County Public Schools and graduating from Ft. Hunt High School. She now lives and works in the city of Fairfax. When she’s not working, Ms. Fogarty enjoys traveling and going to concerts at the many live music venues in the area. Ms. Fogarty has three daughters.

Hardworking, Caring, and Responsive
I reached out to Ms. Fogarty in regards to my divorce and custody situation. From the moment I sat down with Ms. Fogarty i knew she would be the best option to represent me after i initially consulted with 2 other family lawyers prior to meeting with Kate. I will say my case was extremely complex and emotional and Kate was dealing with my child's Mother being Pro-Se. Kate handled this case with professionalism and care. Her knowledge of family law was outstanding and her way with words in front of judge was extremely impressive. People (like myself) complain about the costs of lawyers however the saying is true "you get what you pay for" Without going into details, the overall outcome was in my favor and as a Father in the state of Virginia my outcome is rare to say the least and its all due to Kate's knowledge of family law. If anyone is searching around for a family lawyer, just stop and contact Kate Fogarty, she will fight for whats right and try to obtain the best possible outcome for you. I highly recommend Kate Fogarty to represent you regarding Custody/Divorce,

I probably had one of the most trying years last year in 2012. Kate was the one saving grace I had when it appeared all the chips were stacked against me in my divorce and other matters with the court. Kate was very diligent and thorough in her representation of me and helped to keep me grounded when the opposing side was being unreasonable, under-handed, abusive, and just flat out lying. Kate was able to peel back the onion piece by piece until the real truth came out and the tables turned for good in my direction. In the end she was able to have my divorce over in 6 months on the nose, she ensured I retained my home, and ultimately kept me from having to pay much more then the original reasonable offer I gave my ex-wife at the start of our Divorce. Kate is a wonderful attorney and I am just glad she was on my side during this process and not on my ex's. The old saying goes you get what you pay for, well, Kate was worth every penny I spent on her and then some. I would highly recommend anyone in need a good Civil Attorney to consider hiring Kate, you will not be disappointed.
