McLean-based law firm General Counsel PC has hired Joanna M. Foard to join its legal team to build and lead a family law practice

Foard, who has relocated from Orlando, Fla., was recently recognized as one of that region's top family law attorneys by Orlando Family Magazine.

Foard has family in the Washington area and attended Catholic University.  

“I’m happy to have relocated to the DC area and finding General Counsel, P.C. was a perfect fit,” she said. 

Foard provides full service family law representation, including divorce, equitable distribution of property agreements, child support, alimony, prenuptial and postnuptial agreements, custody, parenting plans/timesharing schedules, modification of child support orders and/or alimony, enforcement actions, relocation actions, and paternity actions.
