About me

Alan Plevy knows making a difference as a divorce attorney requires more than just understanding family law statutes. “Divorce law is like no other practice,” says Plevy, explaining that it is essential to at least be familiar and preferable to be an expert in other areas of law. “I have to know everything from tax law to real estate, contracts to estate planning. But being a good divorce attorney also means understanding the importance of listening to my clients as well as knowing all the players at the courthouse.” His practice areas include Civil Litigation, Domestic Relations; Child Custody; Adoptions; and all aspects of divorce. Additionally, he has argued a number of cases to the Court of Appeals in Virginia which are regularly cited as landmark precedent.
