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).

Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
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.
