For Over

  • I wanted to take the time to thank you for all that you did to get us to a final agreement last night. I was awestruck by your ability, as well as the Judge's, to maintain focus and drive the process forward even when I was hitting the wall and the hours droned on. I am truly sorry for starting to come undone. As much as I tried to avoid it, I think the ...

  • Divani Nadaraja recently represented me in executing a messy divorce agreement. There were complications from the beginning of this enforcement. Divani used creative strategies to come up with a solution that best worked to my advantage. She worked within her boundaries, but was able to get what I was owed. Divani used her insight and pulled from the ...

  • Al and his team have provided the most professional and proactive approach to my case. The level of communication was perfect, walking that fine balance of ensuring that everything is accomplished and watching how the money is spent. They were always at least two or three steps ahead of the pack ensuring that we were prepared for everything that was coming ...

  • Please thank Mr. Bonin for his support late last year. He went above and beyond to provide me with the information that I needed in simple terms, and was creative in providing a plan that would be most affordable to me. I will highly recommend him.

  • I sought a divorce and soon learned that the legal actions would have to take place in Virginia where my wife lived rather than the state where I lived. I was referred to Al Bonin and am pleased to report an excellent working relationship resulted. Despite several conflicts, steady progress toward a solution and equitable settlement was achieved. I was ...

  • Al Bonin and Molly Garrett assisted me during a trying and lengthy custody evaluation involving elementary-aged school children. I do not know how I would have handled the many twists and turns, ups and downs of this emotional roller coaster without their wise, thorough, and expert counsel. It was apparent to me from the first time I met Al Bonin that he had ...

  • Currently Molly Garrett is representing me while I go through a divorce. I wanted to take this opportunity to pass along my thoughts. She is fantastic. We entered into an agreement with my ex very quickly because of her expertise. Also, she brought things to my attention I would have never thought about. She is always so quick to respond. The time stamps are ...

  • Al Bonin took a very challenging case, which many lawyers before him had hesitated/refused to touch. Not only did Mr. Bonin take and win the first part of the case, in an effort to reduce my legal expenses, he suggested that I turn the second part of the case to Hope Rosen. Ms. Rosen successfully finished my legal case in August 2010. I've had to contact ...

  • I'm so thankful for my lawyer, Roberta K. Henault. If anyone is getting divorced in Northern Virginia, I highly recommend her. Divorce is a quagmire, and she was knowledgeable and capable, and it was such a relief to know I had her looking out for my best interests. She gave me good advice and had a good sense of what I could expect. I never felt that she ...

  • ShounBach is a world class law firm. Al Bonin represented me through a difficult experience with a pragmatic approach, utmost professionalism and complete honesty. Going through a divorce is not easy, but Al guided me in a manner that encouraged me to focus beyond the divorce - it was one of the best things he could have done for me. I will always be ...

  • I want to thank Hope Rosen and her team at ShounBach for all their hard work towards my case. I have been in the military's legal field for 17 years and seen plenty of lawyers in action inside and out of the courtroom. From day one, Hope has been a rock star. She is extremely competent and most importantly passionate of her job. I had trust issues - just as ...
