Steven Goldman was so professional and personable I highly recommend him to anyone. He did an amazing job hearing my issues and converting them into solutions we could achieve.

Carl Schoenherr was my attorney for my custody, visitation and divorce. He is a hard worker and very dedicated. He did an excellent job throughout the entire process. He is very knowledgeable, professional and kind. He always explained everything in a way that I understood. He has always been quick to answer my emails and he is very prompt. He did an exceptional job at trial! Myself and my family were highly impressed. He was very attentive and on point the entire time. He was able to adjust and adapt to anything that came his way or anything that changed. His closing argument was exceptional! I am happy with the outcome and I'm so thankful I had Carl Schoenherr for my representation. I highly recommend him to anyone that needs representation. He is excellent!

Steven Goldman is an excellent Attorney who truly serves in the best interest of his clients. He is extremely well mannered and transparent in his performance of providing excellent legal representation. Steven represented me in a lengthy custody case that was very complex to say the least. He was straightforward on what my focus needed to be, the steps I had to take and the considerations that needed to be weighed in order to ensure an optimal outcome of the case. I took his advisement and applied it accordingly which resulted in a favorable end result. I recommend anyone who is looking for a hardworking, poised, experienced, effective and most importantly "play no games" Attorney to consider Steven Goldman. If he was able to make a difference in my situation then he can definitely do the same in yours.

Outstanding representation and defense.

Mr. Steve Goldman is an exceptional lawyer. I would hands down recommend Mr. Goldman. He handled my case and represented me in a most professional manner. Every step of the way Mr. Goldman explained all issues at hand and provided a recommendation that would best suit not only myself but my child. I always followed his recommendation which always culminated in a successful outcome. His extensive knowledge of law, wealth of experience on child custody matters, and his ability to strategize each scenario of the case always meant Mr. Goldman was several steps ahead of the opposing lawyer. Furthermore, Mr. Goldman was able to settle out of court with all of our demands agreed upon and then some! Not only did this save money but it saved the additional stress and emotional toll court would have brought. This was a testament to his legal prowess. I am extremely satisfied with the outcome. If you want someone on your side representing you Mr. Steve Goldman is who you need.

DiPietro Law Group is a World Class Firm! Camellia Safi is a First-Class Attorney that took charge of my crazy divorce case. My former spouse was fired by a mediation team for failure to negotiate in good faith. Then, she was determined to drain me financially with never ending games to run up legal expenses. Camellia Safi took a personal and professional interest in my case and took charge of matters. She quickly brought the opposing attorney to the settlement table with compelling, rock solid arguments. I thank God…and “My Attorney” Camellia Safi for bringing peace back into my life. Mike M.

I was recently referred to Camelia Safi and she was absolutely wonderful! It was already the most stressful thing I have ever been thru and she made it so much easier to deal with. I really can't say enough good things! Super happy with the referral! Highly recommend!

Camellia was wonderful. She made sure I understood the choices I faced and helped me make the best decisions that I could for my situation. I highly recommend her.

I truly appreciate the representation and service I received from Sakeena Farhath and Camellia Safi. They are excellent attorneys that completely had my interests and needs at heart. They communicated constantly with me. I could always reach them, I never waited to hear back from them or wondered what was going on. I worked longer with Sakeena and I felt fiercely protected by her and her legal skills. I would recommend both of these attorneys, and the firm as whole as the other staff was also highly professional. The billing was well handled and transparent, Linda Gray always explained my invoices and is genuinely a kind person. If I need further family law services I would immediately go back to this firm and highly recommend them!

I would highly recommend Camellia Safi with DiPietro Law Group. She was very knowledgeable and always very prompt. I had full confidence in Ms. Safi's expertise.

Chris was there to listen to my needs from day one. Although I knew he had other clients, he always got back to me in a timely manner. He was responsive, thorough, and was willing to talk things through (a lot). He asked me great questions that made me think my decisions through, although he never tried to persuade me one way or another. I wasn’t sure about the pre-agreed pricing approach at first, but after seeing how tiny things can add up, I’m so glad I did it this way. In the end, my result was exactly what I wanted and needed, and it was thanks to Chris and his great work.

Chris is an excellent, skilled, lawyer that's truly down to earth and easy to work with. Only a fool goes to court without a lawyer, and an idiot goes to court without Chris Macturk.

They treated so bad that I was crying as soon as the meeting ended. I was going through the worst moment of my life and was treated with prejudice and felt very humiliated. Attorney Chris is the worst professional I’ve ever met.

WORST service I’ve ever had. They don’t care at all about the client. Do NOT go there.

If there’s one great thing about Chris—and trust me, there is more than one— it would be his follow through. When it came to my concerns and needs, Chris was genuinely focused on providing the best possible outcome for me. I've worked with people who usually take a day or two to respond— but Chris never let anything fall through the cracks, he was always ready and willing to help, at any time of the day. His pre-agreed pricing approach was great too, and worked out better than I could have imagined. These kinds of situations aren't always easy, but I can’t believe how much of a difference working with someone like Chris made.

What a great firm , I was sent by family member there and Hope took great care of me and my family. It was a very difficult time in my life, and they made me feel at ease. They handled process very proficiently and professionally, we had a great outcome. Needless to say I highly recommend to all my friends and family that need a family law attorney in VA! Worth every penny ! BEST FAMILY FIRM IN FAIRFAX VA!!

I have known Hope personally for over fifteen years. Her professional approach in service to her clients and with other attorneys sets her apart from many others in the legal industry. Her calm demeanor and no-nonsense personality allows her to provide the best advice to her clients, even in the most difficult circumstances. She is a true advocate for her clients and I am happy to recommend her services to others.

Hope is extremely talented lawyer who provides her clients with the knowledge and guidance needed to get through any family law conflict. With her years of experience, Hope has developed a stellar reputation as a strong advocate and a trusted member of the bar. From taking a case to trial to negotiating settlements, Hope is dedicated to providing her clients the best possible outcomes. I highly recommend Hope Rosen.

Hope Rosen was terrific to work with during a difficult time for our family. She is caring and warm, yet firm and professional. She backs up her confident demeanor with strong know-how and mixes it with compassion. I highly recommend Hope and would return to her again, if needed.

Hope Rosen is a lying, incompetent, and unprofessional family law attorney. Hope Rosen routinely violates The Circuit Court’s and the Supreme Court of Virginia’s Rule on notifications. “Certifications of Moving Party/Counsel” and “Certificate of Service”. Following Circuit Court’s and Supreme Court of Virginia rule is the cornerstone to integrity of our legal system and therefore our democracy. Hope Rosen has repeatedly and willfully violated these rules on professional conduct and professional ethics. She is unfit to be an Officer of The Court. Hope Rosen is well known by her colleagues and lawyer community as lacking negotiation and conflict resolution skills. Hope Rosen barely knows the cases she takes on to represent. Her resume says it all moving 6 times in ten years. Hope Rosen has no knowledge of financial institutions rules and transfer of assets due to QDRO. Hope Rosen becomes emotionally an extension of her clients and therefore loses objectivity and professionalism. She complains, demands, and delays as if she is the client she represents rather than guiding them through to a fair, legal, and reasonable settlement. Hope Rosen wouldn’t recognize a good deal even if she was looking at it with magnifying glasses. Because of her lack of conflict resolution skills, she ends up litigating every point and every issue. This in return prolongs the inevitable and racks up the legal fees to the detriment of all parties. Inevitably after losing a few motions she cracks under pressure and settles for less than deserved. Hope Rosen is a second rate family law attorney, you’ll end up paying more and getting much less in return with her style of representation. Just look elsewhere. There are plenty of good family lawyers in Fairfax County.

I've known divorce lawyer David Roop for more than 15 years - he's widely regarded as a very good lawyer. According to the people I have referred to his office over the years, he has been one of the most effective family lawyers in Northern Virginia, in cases both straightforward and complex. He is smart, shrewd and energetic. Moreover, he has very good people around him - both lawyers and support staff - who are professional and hard-working. I recommend him and his firm without reservation.

David Roop and his team accomplished in 9 short days what three other law firms could not accomplish in three years. The result was far beyond anyone’s predictions and exceeded all expectations. They easily understood the many layers of complexity in my case. I’m so grateful for all they did for me and my children!

I cannot express enough how impressed I was with the representation I received from Komal in my divorce proceedings. From the first day we met to discuss my case, she was open, honest, not making any guarantees about the outcome but that she would work hard in representing me.....and that she did!! She was always professional, responsive, showed much integrity and worked diligently to get me a fair settlement. I am truly satisfied with the outcome of my case. #ThankuKomal

Sometimes life throws you a curve ball and you might find yourself in a situation where you or a family member needs family law legal representation. Because divorce can be an emotionally taxing experience for any family you will need the best in your corner. if you find yourself in this unfortunate situation then David Room and his team will fight on your behalf.  In general divorce attorneys aren’t necessarily known for bringing people together, but that’s often a vital part of what they do. David Roop came highly recommended as an attorney who works to negotiate different options with his clients. David is a brilliant level-headed attorney who is not going to bully or create additional drama to prolong the process. David is thorough with his attention to detail, he has knowledge of the current case law, a photographic memory and most importantly he thinks out of the box to resolve disputes. Recently for a family member he dug deep in past cases and found a case which resolved a financial dispute. I have the highest regard for him because he is a problem solver not a problem maker. Divorce lawyers shouldn't be high drama, escalating emotions and stroking egos it is about coming to a resolution so that the family can begin to heal. Unfortunately, life is not always fair and you only get one get one shot. I would always recommend David Roop and his law firm. They are all you need for the best representation in these difficult family disputes.

I highly recommend this law firm to anyone in need of such services. My case was not an easy one and I had already had experience with a bad attorney prior to coming to this firm. The thing that stands out about this firm is that they strategized with me (I did not have this experience with other attorneys) on my case and helped me navigate and explore all my options so that we could arrive at a mutual overall strategy that was best for me and my case.

Ms. Chowdhury led me through the process and got results. She is exceptionally detail oriented and that made all the difference. In comparison to the opposing counsel, she was light years faster, more well informed, responsive, and was able to produce deliverable quicker. She also had a clear understanding of the nuances of a military divorce, which was great.

I hired Afsana after consulting with 3 other attorneys. The reason I chose her is because she offered an out-of-court solution to get my divorce done as quickly and painlessly as possible, without losing anything that I'm legally entitled to. My ex's attorney tried to pull a fast one on me. Afsana was quick to catch her and ensured that the division was done properly. I've saved thousands in attorneys fees by hiring her instead of the greedy litigators and gained thousands because of her hard work in getting me a winning settlement. I would never look elsewhere for a top-notch divorce attorney.

Afsana was extremely helpful and informative. She quickly understood my situation, is aware of current laws/modifications, and was able to immediately suggest a few options/paths to move forward. I would highly recommend Afsana to my friends and family!

I am usually too busy to take the time to write reviews but with Afsana, I had to find the time as she really impressed me. I took advantage of her free consult and her office even allowed me to do it over the phone for convenience. Partway through the consult, I was certain that she was the lawyer for me. She is very organized, thorough, extremely knowledgeable, and very easy to talk with. Even though the consult was free, she never made me feel rushed, she answered all my questions, and even made me think of things that I had not thought of yet.

Very professional law firm , got my divorce case completed in short period of time . It feels so good when your case in a good hands . Thank you so much Ms. Afsana

    I am usually too busy to take the time to write reviews but with Afsana, I had to find the time as she really impressed me. I took advantage of her free consult and her office even allowed me to do it over the phone for convenience. Partway through the consult, I was certain that she was the lawyer for me. She is very organized, thorough, extremely knowledgeable, and very easy to talk with. Even though the consult was free, she never made me feel rushed, she answered all my questions, and even made me think of things that I had not thought of yet.

Chris Malinowski has represented me a few times with child custody, support, and divorce. He is and always has been amazing and always gets the job done right the first time. The first time was 6-7 years ago and when I recently had another custody issue it was like he never stopped working for me. His entire team is awesome. I won't ever use anyone else. My only recommendation is to go to Chris Malinowski with any family law problems!!

Melanie Hubbard has done work for me in the past and when I needed someone to handle my latest work, she was the only one I wanted. She worked with me to address all issues very professionally, told me when there were concerns and how they should be handled. The firm does a fantastic job and is a great advocate for their clients.

Difficult to deal with. Provided clear instructions which were ignored and resulted in unnecessary legal work which costs money. When questioned, they refunded a little but they basically took the entire retainer amount because they wanted a larger retainer. I’ve hired someone else and I’m much happier with my new representation.

The firm represented me for my contested divorce case, which included child custody and child support matters. My former spouse was asking for full custody of the children. My case was no piece of cake, to say the least, which included parallel cases in criminal matters against me. Even when everything seemed to go against me, the firm listened to what I wanted and did their absolute best to make it happen, even if they advised against it. Thanks to them, I have primary custody of my children and have the pleasure to tuck them in to bed at least five nights a week. The divorce, also, concluded with a favorable judgment. While you may read several reviews and comments about the firm’s victories, none of that matters. There will be similar reviews about most firms you research. What really matters is knowing a little something about the people in the firm. At Malinowski and Hubbard, you will not only find smart, capable attorneys and staff, but compassionate, caring people. There are no words capable of expressing my gratitude to the firm.

Chris Malinowski represented me throughout my divorce experience. I could not have made a better choice. Although I am certain my experience has been witnessed too many times by Chris, it was unbelievably shocking and devastating to me. From our very first meeting, I knew I had chosen the correct person to represent me. I liked Chris and knew immediately that I had found a lawyer with the utmost integrity, something that was important to me. Chris had a terrific way of putting my mind as ease. He cut through all the incendiary writings of the opposing counsel and dealt only with the facts. I am proud to say that Chris did not write anything that I wouldn't want my adult children to read. Instead of inflammatory language, Chris relied on the law and truth to build his arguments. He is incredibly intelligent and knows the law and the Fairfax County court system thoroughly. Hopefully matters can be settled outside the courtroom, but if you have to go to court, this is the guy you want standing beside you! I found the firm as a whole very professional having dealt with them for three years. Cost is what you would expect and the firm works to keep your costs as low as they can. Greg was fantastic to work with and I worked with Amanda on one issue - she was terrific. Chris Marotta was equally professional and pleasant. Although divorce is never easy, I felt that Chris and his team actually cared about me and my children throughout the process. They became like family who had our backs at our lowest point. I will be forever grateful for their help and would turn to them again if needed. I highly recommend them to anyone faced with a family law issue.

Nicole Burns came recommended to me by the attorney I had (and trusted). When my attorney decided to leave law to raise a family, she told me that Nicole was a lot like her -- she takes the high road and doesn't get into dirty fighting with other attorneys. Exactly right. Nicole is a class act and works hard for you. She's a tough negotiator. And she really listened and fought for me and my child. This was a custodial agreement that needed to be modified and she worked hard to do what was best for my child. Best of all, she brought perspective and kept me on track. Her paralegal was also super helpful -- she did more to help me with the interrogatories and discovery than I had experienced with other law offices. I highly recommend Nicole and her team.

Homophobes!! I wish I had another set of hands so I could give them four thumbs down. They Took thousands of dollars for me. They did nothing but procrastinate. Contracts shouldn’t have taken more than a week. It took them nearly 10 months to do very little but edit my spouses lawyers work And fired me without so much as a phone call and then alerted my wife’s counsel immediately and left me in a very vulnerable position. They worked against me in the end! Ignored all communication from me. I wound up having to sign the original contract my wife’s counsel had drawn up over 10 months ago. I am infuriated to think how much money I spent and they essentially did nothing for me except take my money They did not care to hear my side of the story - that my wife had an affair with a man in her group therapy. They did nothing for me but tell me to wait and in the meantime they did very little work but we’re happy to take my money. If you are looking for a law firm that does very little work and treats you like a number, look no further - you have found the lawyer for you! That last response shows how gutless they are. They were against me from the beginning due to my sexual orientation. They are a bunch of homophobes. Do not trust these people. They just want your money.

Most of the good reviews are written by business partners/friends. My experience was absolutely horrible.

Recommended by a colleague. These are trusted efficient attorneys.

Brian Hirsch is a super attorney. He is sensible, fair and takes care of his clients in top-notch fashion. I worked with one of his associates and had the same wonderful experience. I highly recommend this firm.

I worked with Sarah Knapp at ShounBach. She is very professional and it was easy to work with her. She lined up her expectations, always thoroughly explaining her steps and what she was doing. I felt that I always knew what’s going on with my case as she made me feel comfortable, confident and provided great recommendations on the strategy and how I should act in my situation. I’d totally recommend Sarah because she is great!

No one wants to get divorced. I most certainly didn't. Sarah Knapp was an excellent attorney, and I was very lucky to be her client. She was compassionate, friendly, and knowledgeable. She explained things in a clear and concise way. At each stage, I felt that she was looking out for me and that she had my best interests at heart. She also did not bill me in excess. I would recommend her to anyone in need of a divorce or family attorney.

I was very pleased with Mrs. Knapp's professionalism and expertise. She was always very responsive and gave insightful, intelligent legal advice.

I am a former client of Carrie Patterson, Esq. What an exceptional legal representative she was for me during a difficult family law case where I was my own worst enemy out of fear and a recent, severe medical injury. She quickly realized the importance of getting a legal instrument in place that would endure due to my fragile health and finances. I think she did a fantastic job considering the complexity of my case.

Custody battles are horrible! However, having the law firm of ShounBach and most especially Sarah Knapp, on your side, you can rest easy. Sarah is a fighter and won’t give up on a client. Her tenacity, intelligence and ability to establish such a strong case had the opposing counsel advising her client to settle and not even bother with a trial. I am truly blessed to know Sarah and to have been represented by her. My son and I owe her, and ShounBach, our heartfelt thanks for the bright and happy future we both now have together.

We were thrilled to find a woman-founded, women-led firm to assist us with our legal needs. We could not have been in better hands than the Geller Law Group. The attorneys and staff were attentive, responsive, smart, detail-oriented, and patient. We would highly recommend their services to anyone in need of an attorney who will treat your needs with attention and care.

I had the pleasure of working with Stephanie Sauer Goodwin with the adoption of my daughter. I would not have survived the long confusing process without her. She held my hand through and kept me confident. She wasn’t just a lawyer, she became a friend. She makes you feel like a priority anytime you need her. I highly recommend her! Thanks!

Over a period of over a year, I worked with 3 outstanding attorneys from this firm. Their attentiveness, professionalism, and honesty got me through one of the toughest situations in my life. I always knew what to expect and they explained their strategy along with every action they took on my behalf. I truly felt that they represented mine and my child’s best interests at every turn. I cannot say enough positive things about this law firm. I hope to never need their services again but recommend them to everyone I know who does.

Our experience with the Geller Law Group was exceptional in every way. Sophia handled our estate planning professionally and exceeded all of our expectations. Additionally, everyone with whom we interacted from the legal assistants to the administrative staff was very pleasant, patient, and helpful.

The Geller Law Group is highly recommended! I've put off doing my estate planning for years. They were extremely professional, timely, and easy to work with at a reasonable fee. Thanks!!!
