How We Practice Family Law
Our practice philosophy at the Law Offices of Gwena Kay Tibbits is to always prepare for litigation, but always work toward settlement of issues between parties. We believe that if parties seek to cooperate and work things out between themselves, they are both better served than having a judge decide. However, we will aggressively advocate for our clients in Court whenever necessary. A great deal of time is indeed spent in court because of the complexity of many issues, and because of the emotionally-charged nature of the cases. While we are located in the City of Alexandria, we represent clients in all of Northern Virginia and D.C. We practice in the State and federal courts, both local and appellate levels.
