About this firm

Providing Legal Service to Families in Fairfax and Northern Virginia Since 1981

If you need legal advice about a family-related conflict, turn to a law firm that has a proven record of success helping clients resolve difficult family disputes.

The Nova Family Law Group is a full-service family law practice that operates as a division of the well-established Fairfax law firm of Hale Carlson Baumgartner, PLC.

Nova Family Law Group is led by its partners Dana James Carlson, Harold T. Hughlett, and Ryan M. Mattson with extensive trial experience dating back to 1981. Nova Family Law Group handles all kinds of family-related legal issues, ranging from high-conflict family law disputes ending in the courtroom to negotiated settlements.

Advocates Who Identify and Protect Your Best Interests

The lawyers of Nova Family Law Group serve as advocates in divorces, property division, spousal support (alimony), child support, child custody, and visitation matters. In each case we meet with our client and engage in a careful analysis of the client's family circumstances, from which we identify specific legal issues. We inform our clients of their rights based upon the laws of Virginia, and then we develop a strategy based on our client's stated goals.

In some cases, our clients' primary worry is protecting their children. In other cases, our clients' main concern is protecting their right to a fair share of assets from the marriage. These are very different types of concerns, and our attorneys work as a team to build a legal plan for each case that best fits each client's unique needs.

A Team Approach to Complex Family Law Disputes

The lawyers of Nova Family Law Group take a team approach to our clients' cases. This means that our family law attorneys regularly gather to discuss our active cases. We provide each other with feedback, we brainstorm potential strategies and we analyze the merits of each case. We never bill clients for this time spent on their case. We believe that we perform our best work — and our clients gain the most benefit — when we learn from one another and apply that knowledge to our clients' cases.
