Angela Morehouse

Chief Operating Officer

Effective October 2023, The Irving Law Firm promoted Angela Morehouse to the position of Chief Operating Officer. Angela, who previously held the title of Family Law Division Lead, has been instrumental in guiding our firm through significant growth in both attorney and paralegal staff within that division. With her new role, Angela will leverage her pre-law business and marketing background to oversee the firm’s operations. She will also spearhead our firm’s growth initiatives in Personal Injury and Estate Planning. Moreover, Angela will play a pivotal role in our upcoming geographic expansions, particularly in our Family and Criminal Law practice areas.

Angela’s legal journey spans over thirteen years in active litigation and over five years with The Irving Law Firm, where she has showcased her expertise in litigating high-conflict family law matters, guardianship and fiduciary proceedings, and serving as a Guardian ad Litem for children and incapacitated adults. Before joining us, Angela owned, managed, and served as the lead attorney at The Morehouse Law Firm, P.L.L.C. for five years and was previously associated with Von Keller Law, P.C. Her legal career in the Northern Virginia area commenced with a clerkship under The Honorable William D. Hamblen of the Prince William County Circuit Court from 2009-2010. Angela is an alumnus of William & Mary School of Law, where she earned her Juris Doctorate degree in 2009. She also holds a Bachelor of Science degree, summa cum laude, from Old Dominion University, majoring in Communications (Corporate focus) with a minor in Management.

While Angela will still be seen representing clients in court, especially in the Estate and Personal Injury fields, her primary focus will now transition from family law litigation to the broader operations and growth of The Irving Law Firm. Angela’s unparalleled experience, dedication to excellence, and unwavering commitment make her an invaluable asset to our team. We are excited and optimistic about the future under her visionary leadership.

    What Our Clients Say About Us

    Our attorneys will represent you in family, business formation, criminal, personal injury and estate planning matters.

    Passionate, Fierce and Meticulous

    I don’t normally post things and typically stay to myself, but I felt convicted as someone out there may be going through the same thing that I have- fighting for custody/ visitation of your child and can use some direction. There’s a lot of great attorneys/ firms out there and I have spent the money hiring and/ interviewing, but I needed a meticulous, fierce and dynamic one just to have a fighting chance. From the moment I met Attorney Rebecca Thacher, I knew she was the attorney for me. I didn’t feel like a client, I was family. What’s crazy about this….. My case was on a Monday morning, but because I retained her as my lawyer so late, I didn’t give her my information until almost after 4:00 on that Friday. She understood my plea for help and was absolutely fierce in the courtroom citing all my concerns and raised crucial points. I came out victorious. I’m a father and I know what it’s like for a child to be used as a weapon, with Attorney Rebecca Thacher you are not in this alone so please ask for help and retain her.

    He’ll Fight For You In The Court Until You Can’t Fight Anymore

    I got charged with a possession charge and couldn’t afford a lawyer at the time, so the court appointed Fernando to my case. Whenever you choose to get a court appointed lawyer you’re always taking a risk. Because you’re one of who knows how many clients the court has given him with the same problems. But, Fernando never made me feel like another “body” he’d do basic work for while moving to the next. He’s sincere, he listens, and genuinely wants his clients to succeed. He’ll fight for you in the court until you can’t fight anymore. He was truly a blessing and a great lawyer.

    I Always Felt That She Had My Best Interests At Heart

    Angela Morehouse at the Irving Law Firm represented me in my divorce and for the guardianship/conservatorship of my mother. Her and her paralegal are not only professional but thorough in their representation. I always felt that she had my best interests at heart and could count on her and the firm during my most difficult times. I would highly recommend Angela and the firm and wouldn’t hesitate to retain them in the future if the need arises.

    He Is Such A Good Lawyer & Will Fight Hard For You

    Mr.Irving literally saved my life. He is such a good lawyer and will fight hard for you. His whole staff is also super nice and professional.

I will never use another lawyer again. He really is the best!.

    Has Been Fully Engaged In Working My Case From The Moment He Was Assigned!

    A fantastic firm. I have used them for both criminal defense and civil law and cannot recommend them enough. For my civil case I was awarded significantly more than I thought I would be getting and it came in a very timely manner. Fernando, who is handling my criminal case, is amazing. He has been fully engaged in working my case from the moment he was assigned. He is trustworthy, provides honest assessments of situations, and has proven himself invaluable to me. In this very trying time he has also shown that he actually cares about my case and it’s outcome. I’m so grateful he’s on my side and I have recommended him to a number of friends and family members. If you need a lawyer this entire firm seems to be absolutely top notch.

    He Delivered On Everything He Promised!

    Mark B. was amazing! He delivered on everything he promised. He prepared me for worst case scenario and had a great plan from the beginning. Luckily he was able to get all charges dropped. He’s a very busy guy but never made me feel like he rushed anything. I usually do not like dealing with lawyers, but he’s a rare breed. He’s very professional, personable and likable. Best of all he charged me a flat fee up front. I owe that guy everything. Least I could do is leave a great review. I would definitely recommend him, and use his talents again if needed.
