Her practice covers every type of family law matter in Virginia, including separation, divorce, custody, visitation and support cases. Ms. Chunephisal works in the firm’s offices in Fairfax and Manassas, and represents clients in Fairfax County, Prince William County and all across Northern Virginia.

Ms. Chunephisal grew up in Northern Virginia, attending Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington and James Madison University in Harrisonburg. She moved to Scottsdale, Arizona after her college graduation, but returned to the DC area to attend law school.

Ms. Chunephisal earned her J.D. from Catholic University, Columbus School of Law in 2007. She then began her legal career as a judicial law clerk to the Honorable Marcus D.
