After issues involving children, the most complex part of most divorces is property division. Each party wants to maximize his or her share, and will often try to get more. To protect your rights and make sure you are treated fairly, you should work with a trusted and proven legal team.
At The Maddox Law Firm, P.C., we thoroughly understand Virginia's property division laws, and we use that knowledge to help our clients receive the portion of the estate that they truly deserve.

No matter what, when you come to us, you will be treated with respect and we will give you an honest assessment of your case.
Strong Advocacy for Every Client
Property division is often contentious because the parties not only want to retain the majority of the assets, but also because they do not want to be responsible for taking on debts. Our attorneys understand these concerns and provide detail-oriented, thorough counsel regarding all types of property, including:
- The family home
- Rental property
- Business property
- Hidden assets
- Personal property, like cars and furniture
- Investments and retirement accounts, including pensions and 401(k)s
With decades of experience in this area, the lawyers at The Maddox Law Firm can often negotiate property settlements out of court, without going through litigation. If your case cannot be resolved through negotiation, you can be confident in our ability to protect your interests at trial.
