Family Law

Our attorney at Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis was direct, to the point, understanding, and up front on costs, civil matters, and "reality" of a court room. I recommend him to anyone I know going through this rough time. He left nothing to interpretation and made the matter go as smooth, timely, and conflict-free as possible. My expectations were set to reality, and I'm grateful he was my counsel.

I would highly recommend Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis to anyone who goes through the difficult process of divorce. Not only are they experienced and have a wide range of expertise, they are responsive and put their clients' needs ahead of everything else. Jennifer Babounakis is an outstanding attorney. She has the unique ability to understand and take note of the important but small details and yet see the larger picture. She is a strong advocate and tough negotiator but is also realistic in outlining possible options and results. Divorce is challenging enough - it was very helpful to have peace of mind knowing that I could rely on the sound advice and counsel from Jennifer, and I credit her abilities and experience for achieving a positive outcome. There is no one else I would recommend more than her in this field.

David Roop at Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis is a very knowledgeable attorney, he really cares for his clients and protect their interests. I liked his legal approach, he’s very realistic and doesn’t sugarcoat facts or reality. He’s very witty in his responses, and very professional and experienced in his legal writing, he makes sure to cover all the bases. In addition, during our meetings he always made me laugh through his funny and light attitude, even though I was passing through a very difficult time in my life. David you’re a great attorney, and that’s rare to find these days!

Jennifer Babounakis represented me in my divorce and then again several years later in custody/support renegotiation. She has a fantastic way of being both firm and reasonable with opposing counsel and wisely choosing which battles to fight, which were lost causes given Virginia precedent. Furthermore, her knowledge of family/divorce law saved me from myself more times than I could count. Mindful that financial constraints are real, she folded likely legal fees into the options that she presented to me, demonstrating professional integrity at its finest. She listened - truly listened - to what was important to me and crafted negotiations and agreements with my end state in mind, while also keeping the tone civil and constructive.

Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis' David Roop is an extremely confident and knowledgeable attorney and you definitely want him on your side for any litigation. He is extremely responsive, and always somehow made me feel like I was his only client. His professionalism combined with a sense of humor and understanding of the law made me comfortable during a very stressful divorce. David has an immense understanding of complicated financial business practices and his ability to explain financial planning in layman’s terms was very appreciated. He shines best and proves he is in his element when he represented me during my mediation. It took 10 long hours, and he was full of energy and verve which sustained me when I became weary. In action, David was relentless and fought for my best interests. I walked away grateful that we were able to come to a mutual agreement that was fair for both parties. I highly recommend David, he is an excellent negotiator and he will go above and beyond to fight for you.

As people are entering what will typically be one of the toughest times of their lives, the challenge is finding lawyers that truly have your best interest at heart. The system, unfortunately, incentivises fighting, chaos, fear, and anger; it validates the emotions of the customer, and lines the pockets of the lawyers. Fortunately, I can say that was never the case with Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis. From the beginning, the goal was the same: what is the safest and sanest way to resolve my issues while protecting me and my children. Even so, when things became tense, it was clear that they were more than capable of handling confrontation and had my complete confidence if we needed to go to court. Luckily, we did not. As I am at the age where, sadly, so people are going through divorce, I can tell you many, if not most, of the stories are the same: lawyers fanning the flames and squeezing their clients financially. That never happened here. Quite the opposite. Their office is very well run and their lawyers are all extremely competent. This is the only firm I have recommended, and will continue to do so. Please accept this as my highest recommendation for professionalism, ethics, and competence.

Mr. Xanttopoulos and his staff Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis were considerate and most kind during the stressful process of negotiating an acceptable separation agreement. Mr. Xanttopoulos is highly knowledgeable of the many variations and complications that each marriage and settlement incurs. He provided honest and clear advice which allowed me to receive the best resolution with the least adversarial actions by my spouse.

I feel very fortunate that I picked Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis. Like so many, when it was time to go through this process the stress was dizzying. It is impossible to overstate how much of a difference they have made in my life and my children's. What sets them apart? Dave sets the tone for the entire office; they are honest and fair, accessible and thorough, kind and understanding, legally outstanding and absolutely capable of whatever strength may be necessary to protect your interests. I never once felt "nickel and dime'd" which is, sadly, unique compared to everyone else's experiences that I have shared. Short story? I trust them, completely, and cannot give a higher recommendation.

I have a years' long relationship with Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis, so I can speak to their professionalism and understanding of family law. During my initial interview, David Roop spent extended time with me and asked probing questions in order to understand the intricacies of my case. Alex Xanttopoulos was my attorney through years of litigating a contentious, adversarial divorce. He always kept the greater goal in mind, even when I could not. I value both his calm counsel and tenaciousness on my behalf. Jennifer Babounakis, while not my attorney, knowledgeably and confidently assisted in my case if Alex was unavailable. I appreciate Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis and would recommend them to anyone seeking a family law firm.

Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis is a fantastic firm. I have the utmost respect for David Roop. He helped me through an incredibly contentious divorce with carefully crafted legal and financial management strategies. My ex is an attorney himself and represented by an aggressive attorney who has no care about the human destruction she and her client inflicted. I successfully prevailed in the end with David's help. He set me on the right, carefully calculated course and kept me calm during moments of utter insanity. David brings a human element to an inhumane process. David was a lifesaver, and I highly recommend David Roop and his firm for anyone going through a divorce.

I worked exclusively with Alex Xanttopoulos at Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis. He is as close as an attorney gets to "really care for you and your family", being upfront, about disclosing likelihood of outcomes, and cost estimates, and worthiness of a particular legal path chosen. There have been many times where I got fired up and wanted to take a legal action, which would be in firm's financial interest, but Alex calmed me down, keeping my children's interest at heart. Among mostly corrupt legal system, where attorneys are incentivized to create work for themselves by increasing conflict between ex's, it is hard to find an attorney like him. Alex is a hard to find gem.

I could not be happier about choosing Alex Xanttopoulos to represent me. I was thoroughly impressed the entire time with Alex’s knowledge and his abilities as a family attorney. He always took the time to explain everything that was happening and all my options moving forward without his knowledge and opinion there is no way I would have been able to navigate through such a difficult time. Alex had a game plan the entire time and did what he could to prevent having to litigate, But once that was not possible he was already ready with a plan for trial. Once in the courtroom it was clear his skills as a litigator are second to none. I couldn’t be happier with my choice of Alex and everyone else at Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis I had the pleasure to work with, they really helped me through one of the most difficult times of my life.

Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis did splendidly in representing me in a family matter in Northern Virginia while I was living out of state. Alex Xanttopoulos was instrumental in obtaining a settlement on a complex, bureaucratically entangled issue involving a former spouse and entitlements from the U.S. Office of Personnel Management. His expertise and understanding of how to resolve the issue was very impressive. And his timeliness in responding to matters brought to his attention was outstanding. I was also very impressed with his firm's support staff, which was always polite, professional and competent. I would not hesitate to engage Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis for any family law issues in the future.

I commissioned honorable counselors to help my wife and I take custody of our grandchildren from both of their parents. I was inspired by the dedication and commitment of David Roop and Alex Xanttopoulos and the level of skill they brought to bear. David and Alex defined the strategy and knew exactly what to do and when to do it. Alex conducted the trial and was masterful at discerning what direction to take the testimony of witnesses. We were awarded full legal and physical custody with complete discretion over visitation. The outcome could not have been better for the children involved.

I retained Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis seven years ago when I was going through a nasty custody issue with my ex-husband. The attorneys at this firm were brilliant, professional and sensitive to my concerns regarding the well-being of my children. Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis does their best to establish peace between parties, but they know when to fight to protect my rights and the rights of my children. They are the best Family Law firm in the DC area!

Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis is top-notch. The attorneys and staff are knowledgeable and responsive. David Roop was instrumental in helping me get through a very tough year of my contentious divorce. He is a terrific strategist. I was up against my estranged spouse, an attorney himself, represented by a highly litigious attorney who is only interested in racking up billable hours. David helped me navigate through the treacherous traps set by the other side, and I could not have survived that year if it weren't for him.

I've worked with every lawyer at Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis, and they are universally thoughtful, highly strategic, and able to educate clients about different options and approaches. If you have a complex equitable distribution case with business valuation issues, there are few who can match Dave Roop's knowledge of the complex intersection of the law and technical aspects of business valuation.

I was very fortunate to find Roop Xanttopoulos Babounakis when I found myself in divorce situation. My case wasn't very difficult however it wasn't very straightforward either. When I met Mr. Xanttopoulos I was bit concern as he seemed so young and only few years under his belt. But very soon I realized he was the best choice I made having someone representing me. He was not only very knowledgeable of the law but very kind and personable.

Roop Law is an excellent firm. Also, they had a decent working relationship with opposing counsel which helped expedite the process. My calls or emails were always responded to the same day or within 24 hours. My ex and I had used mediation to set the stage, yet the agreement had to be re-written or clarified in many areas. The entire process was complete in about 3 months. Kudos to Jennifer Babounakis for giving me solid advice—especially when it came down to how we take care of titling the house. I was willing to take a chance and go with my ex-wife’s attorney on how the house was titled and to take my name off the deed. Jennifer said, “I can't let you do that and if you do, I can't represent you any longer.” It was that type of strong advice I needed. I was still due equity of $100K in the house I was going to let my ex live in it until my kids finished high school. All went well.

I came to find The Roop Law Firm through a reference of another lawyer. Alex Xanttopoulos had graciously taken my divorce case as I made my first consultation appointment. Remembering back I was timid and full of uncertainties as what to expect from this situation. Alex was not only experienced but very compassionate about my case. He did not waste any time and had a good plan for our case. Not once did I feel that I was just a number for him rather he gave his full attention to my case. He had answers to all my legal questions and helped me get through the ordeal. His communication skills are excellent and he is very thorough with his work. His level of expertise is high as he knows the family cases very well. He has been very effective in responding to all my enquiries and on time. The staff at Roop Law is also worth mentioning! Everyone there works as a team and always there to help you. I am so glad that I found Roop Law on my side during my legal battle.

The Roop Law Firm treats their clients with care and respect. Each person we met within the law firm was caring and it was clear and evident that they cared. Not only do they care until they receive payment, they truly care. Our case has been over for several years and to this day I still have contact with people in the law firm because they cared then and they care now. The Roop Law Firm was a blessing to us and our family and had it not been for them and their hard work and dedication our niece would have fallen through the cracks and possibly not be alive today.
