Charles S. Wakefield, Jr. began practicing law in Northern Virginia in 1988, and he started his solo practice in Leesburg in 1995. In his 30 years in Leesburg, Charles has developed a reputation for being organized, meticulous, well-prepared, and tenacious -- all qualities that he utilizes to obtain the best possible outcomes for his clients. Charles and his wife, Maureen (who joined the firm as Office Manager in it's first year), have built Wakefield Law from the ground up. 

In 2017, Michael Wakefield graduated from law school and began working with the family firm. He has jumped in alongside Charles and has distinguished himself as a fierce client advocate, a skilled litigator, and a dedicated team member. 

Wakefield Law, PLLC (formerly Charles S. Wakefield, Jr., P.C.) is a boutique law firm providing premier legal services with the personalized client attention of a small practice and the experience and quality of a large firm. We specialize in collections, contract litigation, landlord representation, personal injury law, and wills, trusts, and estates.

One of the complaints we often hear from potential clients is that lawyers are hard to reach and that they do not return phone calls. At Wakefield Law, we make it a top priority to be accessible and responsive in all of our communications. Our entire team is committed to our clients. We care about their concerns, and we are never in a hurry when answering questions or keeping clients up to date on their cases. We know that our clients are busy, so we are always respectful of their time and are responsive to all requests.
