Helping You And Your Family

Timely, Cost-Effective And Understanding Legal Counsel


Going through a divorce can be one of the most difficult times of your life. You may be worried about how your assets will be divided, who gets custody of the children, whether you can survive financially or even how you will work with your ex-spouse as you continue to raise your children.

I am attorney John "Jack" C. Maginnis, III, and I understand the stress that you are experiencing. I'm here to help you get through this separation with your dignity intact. Divorce can be a time-consuming, costly process; I am here to help make it as quick and cost-effective as possible while ultimately helping you move on with your life.

My goal in all family law matters is to help you through the process in a personable manner that is consistent with your principles. Where possible, I seek to facilitate amicable resolutions that serve your best interests. I have intentionally kept my office small, so I can devote all my energy and attention to every case.

Providing Highly Focused Assistance In Family Law Matters

I have been handling divorce and family law matters for men and women throughout the District of Columbia, Maryland and northern Virginia for more than three decades.

I focus my entire practice on family law, providing counsel in:

  • Collaborative divorce proceedings. I help individuals resolve custody, visitation, support and property matters without the intervention of the courts. I will work with you, your spouse, opposing counsel and outside experts to craft solutions that minimize the time and expense of divorce and that provide the best long-term results.
  • Child custody disputes. I will help you fashion custody agreements that are in the best interests of your minor children while protecting your relationships with them. In all custody situations, I focus on minimizing the emotional harm to your children. I will not participate in any effort to use determinations of child custody as a way to punish your ex-spouse.
  • Marital property disputes. As your lawyer, I will work with you to equitably divide the debts and assets of your marital estate, including real estate, personal property, retirement accounts, investments and business assets.

Representing Nontraditional Families

I also provide experienced advocacy to individuals in nontraditional relationships, including domestic partnerships and same-sex unions. I provide representation to alternative families in the same way as I approach traditional family law matters.
