“John Whitbeck represented me on, what most people would agree was, an extremely complicated and emotional divorce and custody case involving abuse and infidelity by my ex-husband. From the moment, I sat down with John, I felt that I was heard, understood, and respected, not just by John, but by his entire team. I was supported and informed through every step of the process. John’s knowledge of my case, his confidence, and his strong courtroom presence was beyond impressive. He fought for and achieved a more successful outcome than I ever could have imagined. John was a true advocate for myself and my kids. He fought for and achieved true justice for us. Today, my kids and I couldn’t be happier, and we truly owe a great deal of that to John and his team.”

“For my divorce case, I had three different attorneys – the last was John Whitbeck. John was far superior than the previous two and also the opposing counsel. John is an excellent litigator and negotiator. Specifically, he had the judge reverse a previous decision based on his interpretation of the law and reached agreement on several contentious topics with a very difficult opposing counsel. John works closely with his client to develop a strong legal strategy and masterfully presents your case to the judge. I owe the outcome of my case to John’s tireless efforts and incredible talent. ”

I appreciated John’s straight forward manner in presenting the choices. It helped cut through issues to define emotional vs strategic good decisions. Being clear about the process and outcomes is essential to seeing a way ahead. I am thankful for his work and support through this tough time.”

He is well respected in the legal community of Loudoun County and is well liked by friends and colleagues alike. He has worked diligently to build a fabulous reputation and proven his knowledge of the law through his diligent practice in the area.

“I only wish I had brought Ms. Cisneros into the divorce process at day one. Once I hired her to represent me based on a number of strong recommendations, I found that I was able to breathe easier again. My sense of panic eased. I trusted her and listened to her astute advice, and it’s now clear that was the right thing to do. Not only am I very satisfied with the outcome of my case, but I am on amicable terms with me ex, which is important for the sake of our three children. Divorce is never an easy process, so you must have a legal champion at your side to guide you through it. For me, that person was Ms. Cisneros.”

“John’s biggest strength is to very quickly grasp the crux of the matter at hand and pledge an unflinching allegiance to it. He has an excellent grasp of the law which, coupled with his astuteness and experience, facilitate expert and successful handling of complicated cases. He is also extremely responsive and this a great comfort factor which his clients have the privilege of enjoying when dealing with him. Further, he is not at all distracted by secondary – and sometimes frivolous – issues that a client might be obsessing over and is quick to provide firm yet constructive direction to the client in order to regain focus and help choose the right course of action and strategy. Refusing to get involved in the emotional quagmire of the client’s state and story is perhaps one of the most potent weapons in his arsenal. Mr. Whitbeck is a formidable legal force to have on one’s side. Ms. Kristin Quirk has all the makings of being a consummate attorney. She has been super supportive, approachable, responsive, extremely efficient, productive and diligent. An excellent drafter of legal briefs and arguments, her keen research skills are always a great advantage and comfort to her clients.”

“My experience with Ruth and her staff was flawless. When you go through a divorce, you are so scared and fearful. From the first phone call with Ruth to the last was always sympathetic, kind and understanding. Ruth is an amazing listener and cuts right through to the issues at hand and how to address them. She does not waste the client’s time! She knows Virginia law and knows what is expected from the judges and other lawyers. She anticipates what the opposing party will do and she was spot on with that anticipation and come back. Going through a divorce is so daunting but with Ruth and her staff, there is no better legal team to see you through to the other side. I am in praise of her and her office all the time!”

“Mrs. McElroy, with her professional and practical demeanor, was a pleasure to work with. She actively listens and provides practical advice and a plan to fit your needs. I was impressed with the high level of professionalism, quality, and friendliness I encountered. Responses were prompt, the work ethic strong, and the work was performed with diligence. I even received after-hours responses and very quick turn a turn arounds on the important items. I am sold on this law firm and plan to use them exclusively when future needs arise.”

“Ruth is persistent in her stellar performance and professionalism and passionate about her clients' interests. Each time we reached a decision or an agreement during my divorce process, I considered it a win as she had my best interest at heart. She has my back, and I respect her advice. Ruth's advice is always on mark as is clear through her years of experience. I hired a phenomenal attorney who fights for me as though she is in my position. She does everything in her power to ensure my interests are met and succeeds. All in all, she treats me as a person, not a number. Thank you for everything Ruth! ”

“Ruth is a great litigator! She will listen to your case, tell you your options, and work for you in the best interest of your child. She did her best for me trying to mediate within reason with the other party to stay out of court, and when a reasonable settlement could not be met, she did a remarkable job in the courtroom with her knowledge, attentiveness, and confidence in arguing my case. Her team (Caitlin, Christina, and Gioia) were all very responsive in a timely manner and incredibly supportive to me in so many ways that I am very grateful for them all.”

“John Whitbeck is the best attorney in Northern Virginia. Having undergone a decade long, internationally complex legal matter. No other attorney would have been able to provide the level of expertise John has. Over many courtroom appearances and countless hours of trial effort, John produced the best outcome imaginable and possible. His legal expertise and ability to strategize the best possible outcome, John and his team of law firm support staff generated a result that provided my children with the best future possible. Aside being a great human being and caring for his client’s well-being, John facilitated a legal outcome that provided true relief from what otherwise can only be described as horrific circumstances. Being a client of John Whitbeck has given me and my children a chance for a future together otherwise legally impossible without his wisdom and execution in the courts. A true legal eagle, John has shined time and again in all legal matters relating to my case and deserves recommendation and commendation for his dedication as a trial attorney.”
