Virginia Haizlip began her career in family law in 2006, when she joined Cole Miller PLLC’s predecessor firm. “I knew I wanted a career in family law because I wanted to focus on working with individual clients.” Virginia was drawn to the practice of family law because of its dynamic nature and the ability to work one-on-one with clients to solve their problems.

“I consider myself a very pragmatic, solution-oriented person. I am committed to working with my clients to come up with a process and an outcome that works for them and their unique families.” Virginia is experienced in complex divorce and custody cases and related family law matters. She works with clients across a variety of processes, ranging from litigation to Collaborative Divorce. “Having experience and knowledge about many different options allows me to help clients evaluate what approach is best for them.”

Virginia is familiar with many of the challenges that face local families. She enjoys working with clients from all walks of life. She has represented federal employees and their spouses, employees of international NGOs and their spouses, business owners, immigrants, and stay at home parents. In addition to working with clients as their attorney, Virginia also offers mediation services as part of her family law practice.

Virginia is active in several local bar associations, including the Virginia Women Attorneys Association, where she serves on the Board of Directors for the Northern Virginia Chapter. She has been selected as a Rising Star by Super Lawyers for Virginia every year beginning in 2010 and in Washington, D.C. every year beginning in 2013. She is licensed in both Virginia and the District of Columbia.

Virginia lives with her husband and children in Fairfax County, Virginia, where she enjoys being involved in community organizations.
