t goes without saying that most people working through domestic relations issues would prefer to resolve their problems as discreetly and expeditiously as possible. The attorneys at The Susan Hicks Group—a Virginia practice offering a multitude of family law services— understand that their role during their clients’ time of crisis is to keep a balanced view of the situation and offer guidance throughout this difficult period. The firm handles varied family law matters ranging from complex equitable distribution cases, involving business valuations, to volatile custody cases. While each case is unique, the firm operates under the premise that achieving resolution without litigation is almost always optimal for the client. However, if it becomes apparent that trial is necessary, the attorneys are prepared to litigate at the trial court level and through the appellate courts. Susan Hicks, the firm’s principal, is a seasoned trial attorney with more than 25 years of experience before numerous courts in Virginia. Each of the firm’s attorneys are experienced negotiators, able to accurately assess the client’s realistic options, and each appears regularly in court, vigorously advocating for the client. “It is always rewarding to me when people are able to look back at the process and feel it was not as horrendous as they had feared, and that I was able to help them get through it,” says Ms. Hicks, a fellow in the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers and former chair of the Virginia State Bar Family Law Board of Governors.
