Summary

We understand that finding the right attorney is critical and would welcome the opportunity to assess your situation, answer your questions, and explain our ability to help -- even if that means helping you find an attorney with more expertise related to your legal matter. We believe that everyone should have access to legal counsel.

We specialize in Residential Zoning, Consumer Protection Law, H-1B visa wage disputes, and Guardianship matters, but would be delighted to speak with you about any legal matter.

Each legal matter is unique and requires an individualized approach, specialized expertise, and an ability to adapt to external conditions. Whether your issue requires a few hours of our attention or a few years, we will always work to give you practical solutions and honest advice.

Practical Solutions
To determine the most practical solution, we help you analyze the following factors to determine the optimal way to proceed:
1) Harm you suffered (your damages);
2) Likelihood you will win (the merits of your case);
3) Cost to recover your damages (time, emotional, and financial); and
4) Likelihood of collecting your damages from the opposing party if you win.

Honest Advice
We expect you to rely on our experience, so you will always get an honest answer. If your case looks very promising, that is what we will tell you. If your case looks to be very challenging, that is what we will tell you. Most cases are somewhere in the middle, so we will help you assess your situation.

For Everyone
Too often, people forgo adequate legal counsel because they cannot find an appropriate counselor to help them navigate our legal system. No legal matter is trivial -- especially if this is your first substantial encounter with our legal system. If you think we may be able to assist you, please contact us. Even if you are fairly certain that your legal matter is outside of our practice areas, we are willing to help you find a qualified attorney.

Legal Answers
45 Questions Answered

Q. I am trying to find some clarity on a specific scenario regarding Liquidated Damages Provisions under Virginia law.
A: I don't think this is enforceable simply if your girlfriend quits. However, sometimes liquidated damages provisions are enforced if a non-solicitation or non-compete provision is breached. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to retain an attorney. Good luck.
Q. jewelry store knowingly sold me a fake rolex.
A: You could sue them for a violation of the VA Consumer Protection Act, but you'd need to have someone testify that the watch is a fake. You'd be able to recover the amount you paid, reasonable attorney's fees, and possibly treble damages if you can prove that the store knew the watch was fake. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to hire a lawyer. Good luck.
Q. My Dad is guarantor. Having issues with roommate. I want to get own apt. Is my Dad obligated to pay if I move out?
A: Yes, more than likely your dad could be held responsible if you vacate without a release from the landlord. I'm sure anyone who responds would be happy to help if you decide to hire an attorney. Good luck!
