  • Law Office of Carla F. Ward

    (1 reviews)

    For over twenty-seven years, I have practiced law in Northern Virginia, focusing primarily on criminal defense and family (including juvenile law) in the courts of Arlington, Falls Church, Fairfax, Alexandria, Stafford, Prince William, and Loudoun Counties. I am also an adjunct professor at Northern Virginia Community College, teaching basic criminal law and evidence to sophomore-level students, and this enables me to communicate with clients about both the law and the court process. In criminal cases it is important for clients to understand not only the charges against them, but the elements that the state must prove and the type of evidence which must be presented in order to convict them. In family law and juvenile court cases it is important to understand the unique situation in which people find themselves when it comes to matters of custody, visitation, support, and division of marital property. It requires sensitivity and understanding of issues unlike those found anywhere else in law because people who once loved each other are now adversaries, yet are often still tied together because they have children. I have served for decades as a guardian ad litem for children and this has enhanced my ability to represent parties in a divorce or dispute over children in addition to providing me with insight into how and why otherwise good kids sometimes get into trouble or engage in activities which can bring them before the courts. All cases are personally handled by me, and all questions that the client may have will be answered. No matter what their station in life, the charges against them, the reason for the demise of a once close relationship, my clients are treated with dignity and respect and with the understanding that even seemingly minor legal matters can be traumatic and potentially life-changing events which should not be taken lightly.
