Offering Comprehensive Legal Services

Since 1978


During times of crisis or distress, the attorneys at Barnes & Diehl remain available to you by telephone, video, or by other means.  In some circumstances, we can meet with you in person at safe distances at one of our three convenient locations.  We maintain our offices in a very clean and safe environment.

During this time of emergency declared by our Governor and by our President, we see clients individually on a restricted schedule, but one that meets with your schedule and needs.

We understand that even in these times, you may have questions, need advice, or need to speak with your attorney regarding your case.  We are here and available to you for those purposes.  Also, even though your case may be delayed as far as Court schedules are concerned, there still is the opportunity to continue negotiations and attempts to resolve issues in your case as we go forward.

We can negotiate Property Settlement Agreements, Premarital Agreements, and Post-Marital Agreements with clients in this environment as well.  We also do estate planning.

If you need legal assistance or other advice with respect to matters in your life at this point, click here to contact us on the internet or call Barnes & Diehl, at (804) 796-1000, and we will assist you as we can during these times.  We are here for you.

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.
