Nader Hasan, Attorney at Law


I settled a divorce case this past weekend, so I have a little time to pontificate.

Our firm provides legal services in the areas of family law, criminal law, personal injury, immigration, and business law. Our firm has now merged with the law firm of Tate Bywater, PLC

We regularly practice in all of the counties in Northern Virginia including Fairfax, Arlington, Alexandria, Prince William and Loudoun. Based on our attorneys’ extensive in court experience, we are familiar with the personalities, idiosyncrasies, and tendencies of most of the judges, prosecutors, and other attorneys in the area. Therefore, we are able to advise our clients of the most likely outcome in their case. In many of our cases, that specific knowledge can make all the difference. We are dedicated to protecting our clients’ rights, whether it is through appropriate negotiation of a settlement or through litigation. Our attorneys specialize in providing advice and representation in matters involving: Divorce: No matter how complex or simple, divorces are stressful but it is important not to let emotional or financial pressures to guide your decisions. Our attorneys will evaluate your case and guide you in the right direction. Child Custody and Visitation: When a divorce or break-up of a non-marital relationship involves children it is necessary to determine a custodial schedule that would be in the best interests of the children. Spousal Support and Child Support: We will evaluate the earning history and earning potential of both parties, as well as several other important factors, and insist on a fair support arrangement. Property Division: Our attorneys have the experience to evaluate a couple’s assets and debts and advise our clients regarding the laws governing the division of property. Protective Orders: often divorces begin with protective orders. Regardless of which side of the protective order you are on, we will fight for your desired outcome. We hope that the information on our website is informative and helpful to you. We offer free consultations for many types of cases and our retainer fees are reasonable and competitive. If you are faced with a legal issue, contact us today to schedule an appointment. Again, thank you for considering our firm and we hope we have the opportunity to meet you and discuss your case. Translation and Interpretation available upon request in Arabic, Farsi, English, Spanish.

To all of my family, friends, and colleagues, thank you for your support and guidance over the past 19 years. Of course, I appreciate your continued support with my new firm. TATE BYWATER exists to help you tackle the tough legal issues in your life. Whether you’re starting a business,have suffered a major accident, or have been accused of a crime, TATE BYWATER’s experienced attorneys are ready to advise and help you. Learn more.

[02/25/18]   There are limited reasons why a person should "have to go to trial" (assuming that no reasonable agreement can be reached prior to the trial):

1. To stay out of jail;
2. To get custody/visitation with your children;
3. Money (child/spousal support, breach of contract, etc.);
4. Specific performance.

Just to be clear: "Let's take them to court for the principle of it," is simply not an option; and it is not the type of client an experienced trial attorney should accept.

[02/05/18]   Marriage advice from a divorce attorney:

When you are ready to get married,
Don't just find someone who "completes" you,
Be sure to find someone who accepts you completely.


Tonight, I begin my 14th year teaching hospitality law at Northern Virginia Community College. Although I primarily serve as a family law and criminal defense attorney, I also provide consultations and represent a number of small business owners in the area.

As part of my first lecture, I remind my students that most "Mom &Pop" shops do not have legal fees in their budget when starting a business. There is a misconception that it will cost them thousands of dollars (which will definitely be the case if you fail to read the fine print in your lease or operating agreement) to engage an attorney.

Having previously owned a restaurant in DC, and now owning a restaurant in Fauquier County for the past 3 years, I understand why you would rather pay for new equipment than an attorney. I get it. However, spending a few hundred dollars for a consultation/review prior to signing anything is a wise decision.

If you have a small business, or you are considering owning your own business, please contact me to discuss it. I will work with your budget (even if you don't have one) and I am certain that you will leave my office satisfied with the advice/guidance I can provide you.

At the end of the day, it doesn't matter if it is a law firm or a restaurant; your customer service is the key to your success.

To everyone who has trusted me as their attorney over the past 18 years, thank you. Wishing you all a prosperous 2018. 12/11/2017
