Hayden has significant experience representing individuals in military divorces, international and multi-jurisdictional cases, high net worth disputes, contract enforcement and rescission disputes, custody disputes involving children with special needs or disabilities, cases involving parties with alcohol or substance abuse problems, as well as complicated equitable distribution and spousal support matters. He also frequently advises clients participating in mediation with third-party mediators.

Additionally, Hayden regularly prepares and negotiates prenuptial agreements for clients in Virginia and the District of Columbia.

Hayden has received extensive accolades from clients and attorneys alike. Between 2018 and 2022, he was selected by Super Lawyers as a “Rising Star” for both Virginia and Washington D.C. – an award received by only 2.5% of attorneys. He has also been rated “AV Preeminent” – the highest Martindale-Hubbell attorney rating for professional excellence – by fellow attorneys in Virginia and the District of Columbia.

Hayden has presented to other lawyers on issues such as trial preparation, client advocacy, and unique ethical issues in divorce cases. He is currently the co-chair of the Fairfax County Circuit Court Domestic Relations Subcommittee, which works to improve family law court practice and procedure. He is also a former a board member of numerous bar groups, including the Fairfax Law Foundation, the Virginia Trial Lawyers Association (as former Chair of the Young Lawyers Division), the Collaborative Professionals of Northern Virginia, and the District of Columbia Academy of Collaborative Professionals.

Immediately after law school, Hayden was privileged to complete a one-year, full-time judicial clerkship for two Virginia Circuit Court judges. Since that time, Hayden has engaged exclusively in private practice.

Hayden was admitted to the Virginia State Bar in 2007 and the Bar of the District of Columbia in 2014. He is also a member of the United States Supreme Court bar.

When he’s not practicing law, Hayden enjoys spending time with his family, cooking, collecting vinyl records, and cheering for the Virginia Cavaliers.
