Washington, D.C. Commercial Law and Civil Litigation Law Firm

Serving businesses and individuals throughout the D.C. metro area

The law firm of Vanessa Carpenter Lourie, P.C. represents businesses—contractors, entrepreneurs, real estate companies, lenders, and other financial institutions—families, and individuals throughout the greater Washington, D.C. area including Maryland. The hallmark of our firm is providing personalized legal representation that meets the needs of each client.

Focusing on our clients

Vanessa Carpenter Lourie, P.C. fosters close relationships with clients, and our brand of responsive, helpful legal service keeps clients coming back for assistance with additional legal matters.  Every client is treated with dignity and respect. Our goal is to fully understand each client’s goals and expectations, and to spend as much time as needed to educate our clients as to their rights and options to remedy their legal issue.  The firm also makes sure that every client receives copies of every legal document, and attorneys and staff keep clients informed of the progress of their cases every step of the way.

As a part of our objective to cater to the client’s needs and the nature of the legal representation required, we offer services on an hourly basis, a flat fee basis, or on a contingency basis whereby we receive an agreed percentage of the client’s recovery.

Our satisfied clients are the basis of our growth and development.  Please see our client testimonials page for more information on the client experience with Georgetown law firm Vanessa Carpenter Lourie, P.C.

Adapting to suit your best interests

Since most cases actually settle, for litigation matters, the firm works diligently to prepare the case for trial in order to put the client in a position to negotiate the best possible settlement.  However, if negotiations fail, litigation is vigorously pursued. Whether settlement or trial, we are committed to doing everything possible to achieve the best result for our clients.

Our Georgetown office accommodates clients between the hours of 9:00am and 5:30pm, but also makes appointments after hours.  Our lawyers’ flexibility allows them to meet clients at their offices as well.
