Offering Comprehensive Legal Services

Since 1978


The Coronavirus (COVID-19) health crisis is impacting our daily lives. We share your concern for the health and safety of everyone around the world affected by this health emergency.

At Barnes & Diehl, P.C., our business continuity plan allows us to continue serving our clients with reasonable safety measures for our personnel. Our systems and policies allow us to remotely access our network to communicate and provide prompt legal advice and client service consistent with our duty to safeguard confidences and information.


During these trying times, things have slowed down to allow social distancing and to reduce the opportunity for transmission of the Coronavirus.  These are times when people can reflect and contemplate things that they always meant to do, but never had the time to do.  One of these things is to think about estate planning for yourself and for your family.  Preparation of estate planning is one of those things that can be done with minimal to no contact with other people directly.  At Barnes & Diehl, P.C., we are equipped, able, and prepared to handle your Wills, Powers of Attorney, and Advance Medical Directives.  We would suggest during this time, that an initial interview take place.  This can be done by telephone.  Once documents are drafted, they can be emailed to clients for approval Then, edits can be done via telephone call to reduce any possible/potential exposure.

If you are contemplating getting planning done during this time, then contact the Law Firm of Barnes & Diehl, P.C., to discuss preparing your estate documents for the benefit of you and your family.

Wills can be done and executed with minimal contact.  In the event of future changes in your life, your estate, or other changes that may dictate a different disposition, codicils (amendments) can be done.

Please do not hesitate to contact us should you need assistance. The well-being of our clients and our people is our priority. Our goal is to support our clients and our staff. Please take care of yourselves.

Edward D. Barnes,

Over the past three decades, Barnes & Diehl has emerged as a highly respected family law firm. We have the resources, skills and experience necessary to handle high-asset divorces and other complex family law matters across Virginia.

With offices in Chesterfield/Richmond, Henrico and Hanover/Mechanicsville, our law firm also has a strong reputation for protecting our clients’ best interests when dealing with criminal charges, personal injury claims and estate planning matters. We are known for delivering unwavering support since 1978. Let us put our client-driven approach to work for you.

We know it is important to share our knowledge and resources with peers in the legal community as well as with the public. Our attorneys are active professionally and do not hide their lights under a bushel. High standards in the practice of law, and useful service to clients, are our law firm’s reasons for existence.

Our firm works hard to stay on the cutting edge in the practice of family law and other practice areas such as elder law and estate planning. Potential new clients are welcome to contact us to schedule an initial consultation and learn how we can help in legal matters such as premarital agreements, complex equitable distribution of marital assets, business and asset valuation, military, divorce, child custody, relocation custody cases, child support, spousal support, collaborative law and adoption.

We receive many referrals from other lawyers and satisfied clients, including former legal opponents: a strong indicator of our firm’s success. We continuously strive to keep our priorities in order — first and foremost as a model law firm serving our clients well in a range of practice areas including family law, elder law, criminal defense and personal injury. We are also proud of our record of service to our community.

Guiding Family Law Clients Through Times Of Uncertainty

At Barnes & Diehl our family law attorneys have decades of experience advocating for clients facing important crossroads in their lives and relationships. We understand what you are up against, but we also believe no two family law matters are same. Our legal team will take the time to understand your concerns so we can tailor our approach based on your needs.

Our success is not based on how quickly we turn over family law cases. Instead, we take a more personal approach. We believe success can only be measured by our clients’ personal stories. Our legal team offers a hands-on approach to help you successfully move forward.
