Practice chair Heather Mehigan notes, "We are delighted to welcome Kimberly and Janelle to the Firm. Both of these talented women bring a unique skillset to our Family Law Practice that will be of tremendous benefit to our clients."
Kimberly Rokosky represents clients in Virginia and Maryland in family law matters; guardianships and conservatorships; and in fiduciary litigation. Within her practice, she deftly handles the complexities of divorce, child support, custody and visitation and is always mindful of the emotionality surrounding these matters. She is well-versed in the handling of complex assets, the valuation of small businesses and the division of various types of retirement accounts. Kimberly is one of a handful of attorneys practicing in Northern Virginia who can litigate both uncontested and contested guardianship/conservatorship proceedings with ease. Within her Fiduciary Litigation Practice, Kimberly advises Personal Representatives (Administrators or Executors), Guardians and Conservators, Agents under Powers of Attorney and Trustees on how to administer the estates or trusts under their control.
