Call When Family Turmoil Makes You Feel That You Must Protect Your Rights!

Why should you hire me as your attorney? One, I have extensive experience in family law cases. Two, I am quite familiar with the issues raised in divorces or custody matters where one or more of the parties is in the military. For years, I lectured to EXPOSE (Ex-Partners of Servicemembers for Equality) with regards to their rights and special intricacies involving military service and pensions. Three, I am an aggressive litigator and finally, I will be honest with you concerning the merits of your case. If it is not in your best interest to pursue some or all of the issues, I will be frank in my assessment.

I have over 34 years of legal experience in the Hampton Roads area. My areas of expertise include family law, criminal, traffic and collaborative law. I have tried cases in every city in Tidewater and on the Peninsula. I am a member of the Norfolk-Portsmouth Bar Association; the Virginia State Bar and its Family Law Section and the American Bar Association. I am also a member of the Collaborative Divorce Solutions of Tidewater. Additionally, I am currently outside counsel for the Division of Child Support Enforcement.

I started my legal career as an Assistant Commonwealth Attorney in the City of Chesapeake and have been in private practice for the past 32 years. I have been a partner in the firm of Miller & Marx, P.C. since January of 1995. It is a small firm which offers individualized and personal attention to each client. My Assistant, Susan, has been with me for 22 years which allows us to work well as a team. Our office is conveniently located on Kempsville Road in Norfolk, across the street from Sentara Leigh Hospital.

I was chosen by my peers to be the past President of the Family Law Organization of Hampton Roads for two years. I was on the board of directors for the Tidewater Legal Aid Society for four years, and served as its President for four years. Twice, I won the pro-bono award given by the Norfolk-Portsmouth Bar Association for volunteer work I did for indigent clients. I chaired a committee which was instrumental in establishing rehabilitative spousal support in Virginia.
