Kenneth N. (“Ken”) Hodge is a lifelong resident of Virginia. Ken grew up in the Richmond area and attended Monacan High School in Chesterfield before moving to Charlottesville to attend the University of Virginia in 1989. After receiving his Bachelor of Arts Degree in Psychology from UVa in 1993, Ken attended George Mason University School of Law. Ken received his Juris Doctor from George Mason in December 1996 and was licensed to practice in the Commonwealth in October of 1997.

Before entering private practice, Ken worked for several months as a Law Clerk for a constitutional law firm in the Washington D.C. area. He then moved to Roanoke and began practice in a small general practice law firm, concentrating primarily on family law and criminal defense, while also handling civil litigation, personal injury, and bankruptcy cases.

In 2001, Ken took a position with a well established domestic relations law firm in Arlington, concentrating his practice in divorce and family law.

Ken took an associate position with our firm in 2005, and accepted a partnership the following year. He has continued to concentrate his practice in divorce and family law, while also handling criminal defense matters that arise from family law issues. Ken’s primary practice areas are divorce, marital property division, marital separation agreements, child custody, child support, visitation, spousal support, and domestic abuse.

Ken is a member of the Fredericksburg Area Bar Association (FABA), Family Law Section, and the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association (VTLA), Family Law Section. He was the Chairman of the FABA Family Law Section in 2011-2012. Ken has authored a number of articles on divorce and family law that are available on this website. Though he currently practices in the Fredericksburg area and surrounding counties such as Stafford and Spotsylvania, Ken has practiced and litigated cases in numerous jurisdictions throughout the Commonwealth of Virginia during his career, including Fairfax, Prince William, Arlington, the City of Alexandria, Loudoun, Winchester, Albemarle, Roanoke (City and County), Salem, Franklin, Bath, Bedford, and Botetourt.

Excellent Family Lawyer
Ken Hodge has been my family law lawyer since 2007; although I had no idea at that time, Ken has represented me for 15 YEARS due to unpaid child support even when I relocated to Illinois in 2009. When I chose Ken Hodge to represent me, I did so because of his personal integrity, humble personality, and his astuteness in family law. He is an advocate for fairness and represents his clients as such. He ensures your needs are met and makes you “feel” like you’re his only client because he cares so deeply. None of us really know how long we will require legal services, especially in family law; thank God I chose Ken!!! I strongly urge anyone looking for help with their divorce / custody to retain him – he really is the GOAT!!!

Family separation
Mr. Hodge listened to me and I had a lot on my mind and a lot to say. I was under much anxiety and anger while living through a separation involving children. Mr. Hodge consistently educated me, and with every meeting or phone call I felt more confident in my decision making. When I had questions about decisions I needed to make like investigations and selling assets, Hodge guided me in that decision making process by referencing specific law- in a way I could understand but also in a way as if we were having that conversation in a courtroom. This approach and relationship worked for me because I wanted an attorney who knows the law, and can apply the law and past Court findings to my specific case and set of circumstances. I was not looking for a friend or counselor, I already had both of those. I was looking for representation and I confidently found it in Mr. Hodge.

Ken N. Hodge and Julie B. Addington are excellent to work with, both very knowledgeable and helpful about the proceedings and information regarding the case and with reaching out throughout the entire process, Ken was very knowledgeable in my case and was able to explain every answer to my questions in terms that were very easy to understand. Very easy to communicate with, personable and understanding of what I was asking, I would highly recommend them and would hire them again if needed!

Attorney Review
Ken was persistent and patient. He never yielded and was always willing to put the needs of the children first. I would highly recommend his services…as an attorney, but mostly as a friend.

Divorce and Custody-Client
I used Ken for both my divorce and custody case. During my divorce, I immediately loss half of the household income and paying for a divorce and custody battle was the last thing I could afford. I interviewed two lawyers prior to Ken, both listened to my complaints and agreed they would pursue what I was wanting. Ken was the only one that listened, then provided the brutal truth. He obviously couldn’t predict how the case would play out, but used his 30 years of experience and provided his best advice and recommendations. At that point, I realized rather quickly that the other two lawyers were willing to do whatever I asked without hesitation because as long as they are paid, they really didn’t care. Obviously, this is my opinion, I really don’t know if they cared or not, but I realized I would spend what money I had on realistic outcomes. A majority of my case was done outside the courtroom in negotiations with her lawyer, however we did have several court appearances. Ken was extremely professional, very well educated and versed like no other lawyer we challenged during my custody case (ex-wife had three different lawyers throughout the process). Behind every great lawyer is a great assistant. When hiring a lawyer, you have to realize that more than likely he/she is very busy and doesn’t handle the behind the scene logistics, payment, scheduling, etc. At the time of my case, Julie was his Legal Assistant and she was absolutely amazing. Always very responsive, professional, and willing to go the extra mile to ensure timely responses. Thank you both very much for everything!
