In 1970, Gwendolyn Jo M. Carlberg established The Carlberg Law Firm with the guiding principle to serve clients with dignity, dedication, and determination. With over fifty years of experience, Ms. Carlberg is well-versed in all aspects of family law. Her knowledge and ability to navigate these delicate issues are endorsed by her reception of the highest rating of “AV” from Martindale-Hubbell Law Directory and through her listing as a Preeminent Lawyer in the field of family law.

Ms. Carlberg is joined by associates, Sharon Moss, Brianna D. Salerno, and Karrie M.B. Dodson. These attorneys add a diverse background and understanding of family law. Together the attorneys at The Carlberg Law Firm are a relentless team, working together to serve clients in Northern Virginia and the District of Columbia in all areas of family law. The firm’s legal practice includes uncontested divorces, contested divorces, high asset divorces, and military divorces. Additionally, our attorneys handle matters in which children are involved including custody, visitation, and child support. In addition, The Carlberg Law Firm also represents clients in spousal support matters, including temporary or pendente lite support, permanent spousal support, and modifications of spousal support. With the Supreme Court ruling of Obergefell v. Hodges, we are proud to welcome the addition of same-sex or LGBT family matters to our legal practice.

The attorneys of The Carlberg Law Firm also have extensive experience in drafting premarital or prenuptial agreements, post-marital agreements, and are skilled at handling mediation matters. Our attorneys also provide estate planning services with regard to the drafting of wills, powers of attorney, and advance medical directives to complement the firm’s family law practice.

The offices of The Carlberg Law Firm are located in an 1875 historic building in Old Town Alexandria at 413 North Washington Street, Alexandria, Virginia 22314, and can be conveniently reached from Interstate 495, Route 1, or the George Washington Parkway.
