Joshua Isaacs has been practicing law in Virginia since 2006 with a primary focus on family law, including divorce, custody, visitation, third-party visitation, support, prenuptial agreements, mediation and negotiating family law settlement agreements. Mr. Isaacs looks at each specific case to assess the best approach for achieving each client’s objectives while remaining mindful of the costs. Mr. Isaacs prefers first attempting to work towards creative negotiated settlement agreements as he appreciates the burdens, both financially and emotionally, associated with contested family law litigation. In the event that settlement negotiations are not productive or practical in a particular case, Mr. Isaacs is a zealous advocate on behalf clients during the course of contested litigation.
