About Maggie McNamara, Senior Litigation Attorney

When Virginia Beach divorce attorney Maggie McNamara meets with clients for the first time, she understands that their lives are upside down. She finds satisfaction in helping clients find a way forward that allows them to continue to enjoy the families and livelihoods they worked so hard to establish.

“I am a creative problem solver,” Ms. McNamara said. “I figure out my clients’ goals and work backward from there to determine how to get them where they want to go.”

There are always unknowns in family law cases, but by working together Ms. McNamara helps her clients navigate the process in a way that minimizes the damages and maximizes the quality of life going forward.

“I truly believe the practice of family law is my calling,” she said. “I understand the magnitude of what is at stake and will do everything in my power to ensure my client has as positive an outcome as possible.”


Ms. McNamara is licensed to practice in Virginia.


Ms. McNamara received her Bachelor of Arts from Appalachian State University. She earned her Juris Doctor from Liberty University School of Law.

Real-Life Experiences
Reviews from Our Past Clients
“It took years for me to come to a decision to end my marriage. I sought a law firm that is focused and prepared for trial if need be, and seeks to give me the best outcome possible. Cordell and Cordell has performed very well and is very supportive during this difficult time. I have full confidence in my representation and recommend them.”
– Mason B.
“Divorce is hard enough without trying to find a Lawyer who will truly work for you. I had several conversations with Lawyers that seemed only interested in winning somehow. No one wins in a divorce. I should have went to Cordell & Cordell first so I would have avoided a lot of headaches. I met a group of people that genuinely care for you.”
– Mark L.
