Excellent attorney
Alex helped me recoup long overdue child support payments. He was efficient and worked hard to bring this aspect of my post-divorce matter to a close. I was paid the full amount due within 60 days and will always be grateful to him for taking that stressor off my plate. He is smart, knowledgeable and kind - - I highly recommend him.

Alex was clear and efficient with my divorce case. He counciled me as to the various approaches/ scenarios and how they most likely would play out. This gave me confidence going into negotiations and a settlement that I was pleased with.

Review of Alex Xanttopoulos
Alex Xanttopoulos represented me in a divorce and child custody case. I came to Alex late in the game, meaning I started with another lawyer with a different firm, and needed someone who could reverse a bad situation. Alex came to my rescue and I came out with a settlement I could live with. My only regret is that I did not have Alex representing me from the very beginning. Had he been with me from day 1, I would have been in an even better situation. Alex stood firm and advised me with skill and tact. He treated me with kindness and respect and this means a lot when you are struggling through a difficult situation.

"As an opposing counsel, Alex is a tough customer. He's knowledgeable and effective in all aspects of litigation, whether negotiating a settlement or representing his client in Court.

In summary, I consider Alex to be among the best domestic attorneys in northern Virginia."
