Virginia's Family Attorney

Devon Slovensky

The practice of Family Law is deeply rooted in everyday life.

And as technology, communication and social structures are constantly changing – so does the law.

Anyone who’s ever dealt with important family matters such as divorce, adoptions and child support enforcement knows that these cases can get ugly and can sometimes drag on for a long time.

Often, emotions often run high as a person’s or a family’s future changes forever.

And finding the “right” lawyer to help you best navigate these issues can be tricky.

That’s why I decided to do things differently.

The practice of Family Law is deeply rooted in everyday life.

And as technology, communication and social structures are constantly changing – so does the law.

Anyone who’s ever dealt with important family matters such as divorce, adoptions and child support enforcement knows that these cases can get ugly and can sometimes drag on for a long time.

Often, emotions often run high as a person’s or a family’s future changes forever.

And finding the “right” lawyer to help you best navigate these issues can be tricky.

That’s why I decided to do things differently.

As a small firm attorney, I am directly accessible to my clients and am deeply familiar with each and every case that I work on.

And as an adopted child of two wonderful parents, I have a vested interest in helping families feel whole: whether with adoption, separation and divorce, custody, or child support.

I take pride in staying on top of current news and legal issues, so that I can help my clients resolve issues as quickly as possible, with the best possible outcome.

Give me a call, and let’s talk about how we might be able to work together to resolve your legal issues, so that you can move on with your life.

I like to win. Who doesn’t?

But for me this drive to win– to secure the best outcome for my clients– comes from my passion to investigate every option and use my ingenuity to come up with creative remedies for every case I work on.
