Virginia Beach Military Divorce Lawyers
Also serving Norfolk and the Chesapeake region of Virginia
The Virginia Beach military divorce lawyers at Hood Law have extensive experience representing military personnel and their non-military spouses in divorce and other family law matters. We also assist active and retired military personnel with Estate planning issues.
The firm was formerly led by attorney Joe Hood, a retired Navy Captain, who held command at sea, and has served as Comptroller for Naval Base Norfolk.
Now, the firm is led by Mykell L. Messman, an Army spouse of twenty years and a parent of an Active Duty Soldier. Because of this combined influence, we speak your language and am intimately familiar with the unique family law issues facing military personnel, reflected in the high rates of divorce among service men and women.
Virginia has the largest military presence on the East Coast and houses numerous military installations, including the Pentagon. Our Virginia Beach attorney can help you with your family law, divorce, and real estate issues if you are in the military, or a non-military spouse, and one of the parties resides in Virginia or has a connection to Virginia.
