Representative Cases:


Turner v. Turner, 47 Va. App. 76.  Affirmed my client’s position:  Where a final divorce decree provided that the wife would be entitled to 50% of the marital share of the husband's pension, the trial court did not err in entering a QDRO after his retirement, because the QDRO did not create substantive rights, but only effectuated the express intent of the final decree under Va. Code Ann. § 20-107.3(K)(4).

    I endorse Regina without reservation. I had the pleasure of working with Regina at Wolcott Rivers Gates and she was always a strong advocate for her clients. She is diligent in her pursuit of her clients' goals and does an excellent job from beginning to end of representation.

  • Philip Lee Russo Jr.

    I have been opposite of Regina in the courtroom and have observed her as well at trial. Regina is professional, zealous and highly intelligent. Moreover, she understands that a legal proceeding rarely resolves a family's issues. In that regard, she works hard to help her clients understand the long term effects of trial and to resolve issues appropriately to avoid the stress and other negative aspects of trial.
