Kara Lee has a passion for helping people going through difficult times. She works vigorously for her clients on each and every case that she touches. Her goal is to obtain the best outcome for her clients, while also providing them with a sense of peace and a clear path through what is often an incredibly stressful and challenging time. Her detail-oriented and well-researched approach to the myriad issues that arise during the course of litigation provide both clients and judges with assurance they need to make good decisions.

In her 10-plus years in the family law field, Kara has litigated, mediated and settled cases dealing with a variety of complex issues, including adultery, divorce, spousal support, same-sex divorce, child custody, marital settlement agreements, relocation, military divorce, high asset divorce, contempt and other post-divorce issues, modifications and terminations of support, spousal support, child support and equitable distribution of marital property.

For more than a decade Kara Lee has devoted herself to helping individuals who are dealing with family law issues. Her commitment to family law began in law school where she studied various aspects of family law litigation, working almost full time at a top tier family law firm while attending law school full time.

After graduating from law school, Kara began practicing law with the firm now known as Maddox & Gerock PC. Within only 5 years of practice, she became a partner at Maddox and Gerock thanks to her tireless efforts for the firm, dedication to helping the firm’s clients, and her excellent legal work. Kara’s achievements in the field of family law have been recognized in many forms, including by Virginia Super Lawyers, Virginia Business Magazine, and other sources within the legal community.

Kara started Lee Lopez Law PLLC so that she and Misha could fulfill their vision of ideal legal representation for clients. Kara’s vision is to combine her experience in family law litigation with her efficient handling of cases and compassion for her clients. She understands that each of these virtues – experience, efficiency, and compassion – play important roles in each client’s case.

Clients who entrust Kara with their case can expect to be treated with dignity, respect, and compassion regardless of their situation. Clients can also expect to hear honest, frank advice about the legal issues. Kara uses her experience and researching abilities to quickly find relevant law, explain it to clients, plan a course of action, and make the best arguments under the circumstances. And while the truth is hard to hear sometimes, Kara always comes prepared with a plan to address even the toughest legal issues in a way that gives her client’s the best chance at the most favorable outcome.

Kara is heavily involved in the local legal community of Northern Virginia. She has served in numerous roles within the Fairfax Bar Association and currently sits on the Board of Directors for the Fairfax Bar Association. She also regularly attends functions and presentations relevant to divorce, custody, and support litigation. This involvement gives her additional insight about judges’ thinking and successful legal positions within the family law world.

If you are looking for a hard-working, experienced, efficient, and compassionate attorney who you can trust to handle your family law case, then look no further. Contact Kara Lee today by phone or by submitting our online consultation request to see how she can help you.
