Sharon V. Filipour attended Southwest Missouri State University for her undergraduate studies and received her B.S. in Political Science in 1972. She went on to receive her J.D. from George Washington University Law School in 1983.

Mrs. Filipour tries to provide her clients with the information they need to develop reasonable expectations and to evaluate their options as early in the process as possible. From the outset, she tries to achieve results consistent with law and equity as quickly and cost effectively as possible.

Mrs. Filipour encourages fair and reasonable levels of cooperation when the other spouse acts fairly and in good faith. Mrs. Filipour does not hesitate to use the Courts to provide her clients the tools necessary to deal with an unfair or dishonest spouse.

Mrs. Filipour has, on several occasions, obtained favorable custody decisions for her clients despite the neutral custody evaluator (psychologist) recommending a custody arrangement which was not favorable to her client. She has also obtained custody for many fathers and successfully prosecuted or defended appeals to the Virginia Court of Appeals and the Virginia Supreme Court.
