One of the most common emotions experienced by individuals involved in family law disputes is a feeling of a loss of control.

“Will I see my children? Will I be able to afford this house, or any housing? I’ve always assumed that when we retired, we would have his pension. If we’re no longer together, will I get any portion of his retirement? Once, my life was well ordered. Now, I don’t know what I will do.”

In such times, it is necessary to have an attorney at your side who can explain your options in plain English. From the beginning of his representation, Mr. Porter will advise the client what he or she might reasonably expect in a negotiated settlement or trial.

It is not enough to know the law; one must have the experience to understand how the written law will affect the facts of the client’s case. Having practiced law in Manassas for more than 30 years, Mr. Porter has the experience to guide the client through one of life’s most difficult times.

  • Custody
