Incredible Attorney
Brittany previously helped us gain custody of our grandson. Now she helped us adopt our grandson. She is very knowledgable and thoughtful during her representation. If anyone needs an attorney that will fight for you, she is the one.

Truly a Godsend
I could quite literally say I owe my life to Brittany Carper. Her timeliness, knowledge, determination and skills is unmatched. She truly embodies Christ’a love in everything she does. Brittany was able to answer every question I had, and explained all of my options in my divorce. She walked me through every step of the way and made an ugly terrible thing bearable and relatively painless. I could not have gotten through this chapter in my life without her guidance and preserve.

Always Advocates with Precision
In 2013 I began the journey of single motherhood with no guides, no experience navigating the court system and no legal representation. The next 5 years were a series of being ever vigilant to the health and safety of my most precious gifts. My children trusted me as their entire world changed. We sought help and support from friends, family, and community resources. I carved a path, met an incredibly thoughtful, caring and protective man and we began our blended family journey. My ex had resumed visits with his children and it was manageable. Then the situation changed in serious ways that made me realize I needed to seek legal counsel. The issues were too great to navigate on our own. We needed a powerful advocate for our children. We met with Mrs. Carper in May of 2018 and left that meeting feeling confident that we found a path, a light, and hope that we would not only survive this challenge but rise and THRIVE. Mrs. Carper and her team dedicated time and energy to our case for 3 years. Each little victory gave me strength to believe my children would be safe and had a chance to be happy and healthy. Finally, after closing statements the Judge spoke to both parties. Mrs. Carper successfully secured EACH and EVERY request for our custody and visitation order. We are grateful to have found a lawyer with the skill and dedication to dig deep into our case, never compromise our standards, and always keep our children in the forefront. If you are looking for legal representation we highly recommend Brittany S. Carper and her team.

Effective, Good outcomes.
I had a single car accident that I got a reckless driving charge for. Mrs. Carper picked up my case and was able to get the reckless driving charge dropped upon completion of a Driver Improvement course. Mrs. Carper is extremely effective. She is well respected in this region and has an extensive network of professionals like her. Her network, her ability to present to law officials and seek a good outcome is superb. Her staff members are smart, responsive, cheerful and polite. They get stuff done! Mrs. Carper is the lawyer you want on your side in any legal matter.

Outstanding Lawyer and Person
When it became apparent that after 27 years of marriage my spouse was having an affair and making preparations to leave I was in search of the best lawyer I could find to protect my interests and retirement. Had consults with three different lawyers and when I sat down with Brittany I knew just minutes into our discussion she was the lawyer for me. She listened, was taking notes, very detailed but what sold me was how she made me feel intimidated with her pointed and direct questions. Having been the victim of being cheated on, I knew if she could make me feel uncomfortable like this in questioning, that in court she would be that bulldog I needed to protect my interests. Therefore I retained her on the spot and have never regretted it. Brittany is very through, compassionate person, though lawyer, that cut's through the BS involved in a divorce and got me a result better than I ever expected. Even after the case was over she has reached out as an caring human being to check on me on my well being. If you need a attorney that will get you the best results possible for your case, Brittany is your person.

A truly POWERFUL Attorney
Ms. Carper is a tremendous resource for anyone in need of a trial lawyer in support of a divorce or custody case. Her advice, expertise and experience were clear from the first moment and still prevalent after my case was resolved. Ms. Carper has a steel trap memory (seriously, it's scary), is intensely detailed and has an uncanny ability to cut through the BS. She is a bulldog and will fight tooth an nail on your behalf. I honestly believe I would not have the time and access to my children if it was not for Brittany.

Poise and Focus
Brittany has impeccable follow through. She navigates difficult situations with ease and grace, while maintains the upmost integrity. She always enters the courtroom well prepared, documented, and with ease. Specifically, her knowledge of Virginia Family Law is unmatched and I recommend her to anyone who needs her services.

My daughter had an issue with a major retailer that put her employment and reputation at risk. Ms Carper was able to get her case dismissed. We are very appreciative of her work and would recommend her if you need a good attorney in Stafford VA.
