Virginia C. Haizlip
Virginia C. Haizlip joined the firm as a new principal in 2017. Virginia’s practice focuses on divorce and separation, child custody and child support, guardianships and conservatorships, and estate planning and estate administration.
Virginia has been in the practice of law since 2005, after she graduated from The George Washington University School of Law, and initially focused her practice on family law. Virginia was drawn to the practice of family law because of its dynamic nature and the opportunity to work one-on-one with clients to solve their problems. Likewise, through her work in guardianships and conservatorships and estate planning and estate administration, she is able to interact with people and assist them in solving their legal problems.
She enjoys working with clients from all walks of life. She has represented federal employees and their spouses, employees of international NGOs and their spouses, business owners, immigrants, and stay at home parents. In addition to working with clients as their attorney, Virginia also offers mediation services as part of her practice.
Virginia is pragmatic, solution-oriented, and loves to work with her clients to select a process and guide them to an outcome that works for them and their unique families. Virginia is experienced in a variety of complex family situations. She works with clients across a variety of processes, ranging from litigation to mediation and Collaborative Divorce. She notes, “Having experience and knowledge about many different options allows me to help clients evaluate what approach is best for them.”
