Attorney Profile

For more than 15 years, K. Leigh Taylor has been helping families and individuals navigate matters that include divorce, custody, visitation, spousal support, child support, property division and protective orders.  As a Partner at Taylor Huguley Powers PLLC, she represents clients throughout Northern Virginia and the broader Washington, D.C. metropolitan area in all aspects of domestic relations litigation.  While litigation is a fundamental aspect of her position, the vast majority of Ms. Taylor's cases settle outside of court, and she is experienced in settlement negotiations, settlement conferences, and mediations.  

After receiving a Bachelor of Arts from William & Mary in government and Spanish, Ms. Taylor went on to earn a Juris Doctor from the George Mason University Antonin Scalia Law School. After law school, she accepted a two-year Teaching Fellowship at the Domestic Violence Institute at the Northeastern University School of Law, a position wherein she taught two domestic violence legal clinics.  She returned to the Northern Virginia area in 2003, and Ms. Taylor began her career in family law with The Susan Hicks Group, P.C., where she worked as an associate and then partner for several years.   

Every family law case takes its own unique path through the legal system and into resolution. It is Ms. Taylor’s goal to help clients reach an agreement in the most efficient way possible. Doing so aids in preserving relationships and minimizes adverse effects.

Ideally, the people involved in the case are able to determine the outcome, as opposed to a judge making the final decision. Ms. Taylor provides sound advice to clients on how to resolve disputes in a way that protects their best interests. Time and again, she empowers people to develop their own agreements and steers them onto the best possible path for the future.

As with any issue, these cases require an experienced attorney. Licensed since 2003, Ms. Taylor has guided countless people through family law matters. She is able to glean resources from her extensive involvement in the legal community as well.  She is a Board Member and on the Pro Bono and Circuit Court Committees of the Fairfax Bar Association.  In the past, she has served as President of the Virginia Women Attorneys Association, Northern Virginia Chapter and served as a member of the state board of that organization.  She is proficient in Spanish and enjoys working on pro bono cases as well.
