I settled in Northern Virginia in 2005. I have lived in Arlington and Alexandria and represented clients as an attorney in Arlington, Alexandria, Fairfax, Fredericksburg, Falls Church, Loudoun, Prince William County, Spotsylvania, and Vienna. I love Northern Virginia and think of myself as an adoptive Virginian.


I graduated from the College of William and Mary and then attended George Mason School of Law. At George Mason, I managed my school’s Moot Court program, taught writing for a year as a writing fellow, and served as Secretary of the Student Bar Association and co-Editor-in-Chief of our school newspaper. I also was a member of the Federal Circuit Bar Journal.


After passing the Virginia Bar, I worked for the Prince William County Circuit Court as law clerk for Judge Craig D. Johnston. After that, I spent two years at the Prince William County firm of Zelnick & Erickson, P.C. practicing civil and criminal litigation.

I am licensed to practice law in Virginia and admitted before the Eastern District of Virginia. I run a high-tech paperless office and utilize all forms of communication. I take pride in the fact that my clients are able to reach me at any time of day, whether by phone, text, email, Facebook, or Twitter.

One of the best lawyers I know...
I first came across Mr. Foltz at the courthouse where I was struggling to get out of a very difficult eviction case for my tenants, who not only refuse to leave our premises, but also assaulted and threatened my family and I. Mr. Foltz overheard my conversation with the court clerk and offered to help. He introduced himself and asked me to explain the situation, which I did. He immediately assured me that he will be willing to help. We discussed his fee, which was out of my budget so he offered to take the case at no charge. He understood how stressful my situation seemed and wanted to help. I was truly shocked and grateful. Since then, he maintained in contact with me and walked me through the process every step of the way. He also appeared to all the court dates with me and not once made me feel that he was doing me a favor by taking my case at no charge. We were able to finally get the tenants out of my property and the case was resolved in my favor with the help of Mr. Foltz. I’m forever grateful to him. He is hands down one of the best attorneys I know. I would highly recommend him to anyone who’s looking for a passionate and talented lawyer because he’s truly one of a kind.

Straight to the point
By the time I'd obtained Attorney Patrick Foltz as my counsel, my case had already been practically unsalvageable. I was devistated to learn that I would not only be out of a means for reliable personal transportation, but also in a deeper financial hole than I could emagin. Patrick took the time to sit with me and discuss my options as he thoroughly explained the possibilities. In the end he fought for me to receive the fairest settlement with what we had left to work with. He was direct and to the point as he maintained an exceptional sence of professionalism. I'm so please with his service and would highly recommend his legal advice to my closest loved ones. Thank you again Patrick!

Not like most lawyers
I had a question about a landlord-tenant issue, and was calling lawyer after lawyer to ask them about my situation, only to be ignored or told I’d have to pay around $300 for them to say ANYTHING to me. When I called Patrick, I was blown away by the fact that he heard out my entire case, laid out the relevant law and gave me an accurate picture of things to come. I had never talked to the man before, yet he treated me like I was a family-friend that he was giving legal advice to. Because of this first encounter, I will not go anywhere but to Patrick.

Excellent Attorney
Patrick’s handling of my property dispute was excellent, He not only very capabably understood the full extent of the law that applied, he also adeptly navigated through contentious negotiations with the other attorneys who represented the other property owners. I was totally comfortable with Patrick’s handling of this complex case and felt that the ultimate resolution was well worth the time and money put in. I fully endorse Patrick, his skills, knowledge, and experience, and would not hesitate to recommend him.

Honest and Professional... Great Lawyer!
I rarely write reviews, but I wanted to share my positive experience with the Law Office of Patrick V. Foltz, P.C. Patrick represented me through a very complicated divorce case. He constantly kept me updated on the status of my case, and guided me through the entire process. He was very patient, and ALWAYS took the time to answer any question. Hopefully, no one will have to endure what I had to go through, but having Patrick Foltz as my lawyer, I was confident that I was being represented with honesty and integrity, which gave me a peace of mind throughout the entire process. He was determined to attain what I rightly deserved, and he was very successful. I was blessed with Patrick as my lawyer.

Patrick clearly explained my options, the timeline for the case, and set good expectations. Patrick always seemed to have a good handle on my case/situation. I was repaid in full from my former tenant, including my attorney's fees.

Helpful and Responsive
Patrick was very responsive to my needs and walked me through the legal process. He knew what to expect and how to present the case. The result he obtained was as much as I could have hoped.

Patrick V. Foltz
Since my son's case was for a school hearing, I felt that the outcome of the case was what I expected given that Mr. Foltz made sure that I was well informed of possible outcomes. Mr. Foltz made sure that I was aware of what could and could not happen regarding my sons case. So I went into the hearing with full knowledge of my sons rights. Mr. Foltz kept me abreast of all legal issues that I needed to be aware in the case. Mr. Foltz was knowledgable regarding all aspects of my son's case with the school board.Mr. Foltz answered all of my questions in a timely manner and efficient manner.The level of service was excellent. Mr. Foltz was professional at all times and I felt that he paid attention to the concerns that I had as a parent.

Review of Patrick V. Foltz
Patrick is very prompt-knowledgeable, and professional. Patrick was very knowledgeable and helpful in understanding legal terms I would not have known about on my own. He was very quick in returning phone calls or emails when I had questions or concerns, and he obtained a very happy resolution in the successful & legal removal of a late paying tenant.

Great "Old Time" Lawyer
I have used Patrick several times for various legal issues. I chose him because I wanted a lawyer that would talk to me, return my phone calls and e-mails, could be reached for questions, and would take on my issues as if they were his own. I have heard of several law firms in Northern Virginia where after the initial consultation and they have your money, they send your case off to entry-level lawyers to build up their "wins". I wanted to avoid this and Patrick's firm fit the bill perfectly. If you want a hometown, genuine lawyer who will provide you with personalized service, Patrick is your guy.

No Responsive
Had an urgent matter and was recommended to work with this lawyer. I provided all documentation for review and until this date, I never received a call and/or email to schedule a consultation from him. I even called and follow up and nothing. Guess too busy for new clients. Not recommended as how you treat a potential client is how you will be treated during. First impressions are everything.
