Attorney Profile

An accomplished family law litigator, negotiator and mediator, Nan M. Joseph is an attorney with Divorce Mediation Plus, located in Leesburg, Virginia. She provides representation to clients throughout Loudoun County who are ending their marriages and who need assistance with a variety of related issues, including property division, parenting rights, child support and alimony. Ms. Joseph also has experience in negotiating and drafting prenuptial and separation agreements, and she has helped to obtain protective orders for clients who have been the victims of domestic violence.

Ms. Joseph has focused her practice on family law since entering private practice following the receipt of her Juris Doctor from the University of Richmond School of Law in 1976. Prior to law school, she pursued her undergraduate studies at Hollins College and was awarded a Bachelor of Arts in English cum laude in 1973. Admitted to practice in Virginia and the District of Columbia, Ms. Joseph joined her current firm in 2016.

A firm believer in the use of alternative dispute resolution methods in divorce cases, Ms. Joseph is a trained mediator, and she uses that background to attempt to have couples reach an amicable accord on the resulting legal issues. However, she realizes that mediation is not necessarily suitable for all cases, and she is a tenacious advocate for her clients' interests in the courtroom when necessary. Her fellow attorneys have taken note of the manner in which she handles sensitive matters, and they have awarded her an AV Preeminent* peer review rating through Martindale-Hubbell and a "Superb" peer review rating through Avvo. A fellow of the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers, Ms. Joseph remains active in other professional groups, including the Loudoun County Bar Association and the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association.

*AV®, AV Preeminent®, Martindale-Hubbell Distinguished and Martindale-Hubbell Notable are certification marks used under license in accordance with the Martindale-Hubbell certification procedures, standards and policies. Martindale-Hubbell® is the facilitator of a peer review rating process. Ratings reflect the anonymous opinions of members of the bar and the judiciary.
