We Have Won Respect From Our Peers in the Legal Community

Nova Family Law Group is led by partner Dana J. Carlson, who has been with the firm almost since its founding in 1980. Our family law practice benefits from Mr. Carlson's decades of legal experience, as well as from the respect he has won in the local legal community. Mr. Carlson has been named by the Fairfax County Circuit Court as a neutral case evaluator, a pro bono court position available only to senior lawyers with excellent credentials.

Nova Family Law Group is also honored to count among its partner Ryan M. Mattson, a graduate of Michigan State University of Law who has been named a Rising Star in Super Lawyers magazine for both 2007 and 2008.

One of the reasons our law firm has survived as long as it has is that our partners are driven by the same goal: a strong respect for the laws of our state and for the legal process. We are known as ethical attorneys who use honest and intelligent strategies to meet our clients' goals. Over the decades, we have found that honest advocacy and intelligent negotiating often gets excellent results.
