There is no way around it, divorce is awful. I was a mess walking in to Kelly's office. I was scared, confused, hurt and never imagined I would be in this situation. Kelly was supportive and understanding but more so pragmatic. She laid out the process for me in a way I could understand and did a great job explaining what to expect. Her goal is to protect you and your kids in a way that is efficient, practical and equitable. Her comment to me about fighting over every detail is that I could use my money for my kids college account or her kids college account. Looking back, I got through it all and fared much better than a lot of my friends. i am grateful for Kelly's help.

Kelly, was outstanding with my divorce case from start to finish... She clearly explained how the process would play out. The expectations on my end and what she would deliver on her end. For a positive outcome. She delivered everything she had committed to on her end. She was very upfront with the retainer, did not overcharge me at anytime.... All I can say is she is an "outstanding and thruthworthy" professional. She delivered everything she had told me she would. She is "BIC" Attorney Best-in-Class! And I give her my highest recommendation!..

Kelly represented me during my divorce and was very professional and helpful. She took a genuine interest in my case and worked diligently to ensure a positive outcome for me and my children. She and her staff were knowledgeable, responsive, honest, and direct. I have already recommended her to a friend, and I will continue to recommend her to anyone looking for a quality attorney.

We were referred to Kelly by a trusted friend during one of the most difficult times in our family. We faced a custody situation that required immense expertise. At the heart of this, was a child who needed a voice and someone to hear that voice. Kelly was dedicated to making certain we were informed and prepared. She worked tirelessly to ensure we were never unaware of what would come next. Her communication skills were spot on, she replies promptly to inquiries and knows the letter of the law. Her staff is highly capable. Kelly was very attuned to the financial burden that a court case could ensue and would delegate tasks to her staff that may not need her attention so as not run up unneeded costs. She was tough when needed, but more importantly she was discerning enough to know when it was time to be gracious. Kelly has earned her place in this field and you can trust her and her staff to negotiate the legal side of your circumstances with dignity and strength.

Divorce is a difficult step to take and from my initial consultation I knew Kelly was someone I could trust to help me through it. She was kind, caring, and always listened to my concerns. Kelly and her staff were professional, knowledgeable, and responsive. She worked tirelessly with opposing counsel to initiate a settlement so we did not have to go to court which I truly appreciated. If you are looking for a lawyer who is compassionate to your concerns yet tough when negotiating the settlement, Kelly is the one for you.

I consulted with Kelly because of the reviews here and elsewhere and find them immensely hard to believe considering my experience. And then I realized almost all these reviews are from men. From the get go, I found her very cold, disorganized (even a little ADD), and a poor communicator. After talking to her for 2.5 hrs, she did not have a good handle on my case nor a clear recommended path for next steps.

A friend referred me to Kelly and I'm so glad he did. She did an amazing job with a difficult ex and has an exceptional staff as well. I'm sure this isn't easy for anyone and some are more difficult than others but I feel lucky I found her as she made the entire process stress free. I would highly recommend her to anyone. She's tough, fair, and knows all the smallest details of the law.

I found Kelly after considerable research and inquiry. I wanted someone with whom I felt comfortable, and who had an excellent reputation. I was confident I had made the right decision after my first consultation with her. She was thorough and tough when necessary (but not overly so). She was sensitive and caring of my needs during this difficult time, and represented me capably and professionally. Any time I had a question, it was answered, honestly, promptly and directly. There was never a question in my mind about her direction and approach to the case.
I would recommend Kelly to anyone who is seeking a well-prepared, intelligent, creative and honest attorney for their family law needs.

Kelly came highly recommended by a close friend, and from the first phone call she put me at ease and I was immediately confident that she could and would help me through the long contentious divorce process. She is extremely knowledgeable and experienced with the court system, including the rules for former government employees which are quite complicated. She is extremely approachable, professional, and very timely responding to my inquiries at all times. There was never ever a delay in responding to any of the issues as they arose. And I would like to note that her entire office staff works to the same caring and professional level.
Divorce is emotionally exhausting and you can always count on Kelly to be honest, professional, compassionate and thorough. I would recommend her in a heartbeat to anyone looking for a top notch divorce lawyer.

Kelly Hite is a very competent and experienced attorney. She came highly recommended by a friend and she more than lived up to the recommendation. She handled my separation and divorce with sensitivity and wisdom, and that was on top of her experience.
I was looking for an experienced divorce lawyer who did not believe in or use a scorched earth approach, but who know how - and, as importantly, when - to be tough as nails.
She was very responsive to all of my questions and concerns, and I felt and still feel that her fees were reasonable and fair.
If you need a family law attorney in Northern Virginia, she gets my highest recommendation.
