Katherine Wilcox Carter, Attorney at Law
1604 Hilltop West Executive Center, Suite 300
Virginia Beach, Virginia 23451
Katherine Wilcox Carter joined the Hofheimer Family Law Firm in 2011. A lifetime resident of Hampton Roads, Katie grew up in Newport News, Virginia, where her family owns Wilcox Bait & Tackle, an outdoor sporting goods store. She graduated from Menchville High School in 2004, where she swam and played field hockey. After high school, she attended Lynchburg College in Lynchburg, Virginia, where she got her B.A. in Political Science and English and graduated with highest honors. She is a member of Alpha Sigma Alpha sorority, served on the Student Judicial Board, and worked with the AmeriCorps through the Bonner Leaders program. From there, she attended law school at West Virginia University.
After graduating from law school, Katie returned to Hampton Roads and started working with Hofheimer Family Law. She took on two roles: attorney and marketer. She quickly realized that she could combine her lifelong love of writing with her knowledge of the law through the firm’s marketing efforts, and started by keeping up the firm’s online presence through posting blog entries, articles, and press releases. She has also represented a number of women in their divorce and custody disputes, and particularly enjoys custody cases.
Katie is also the chief author of our do-it-yourself divorce site, Design Your Divorce, which is designed to help women learn how to draft separation agreements as good as what an attorney would draft and file for uncontested divorce in their local circuit court. We call Katie our “e-lawyer” because she will also provide troubleshooting support and guidance for the women subscribers on the site. For more information, visit our website, Design Your Divorce.
Katie and her husband, Jonathan, a charter boat fisherman/tug boat captain, live in the Ocean View area of Norfolk with two (nearly) perfect Labrador retrievers, Sally and Cash. Together, Katie and Jonathan spend a lot of time outdoors hunting and fishing. Katie also loves running and working out. In her spare time, she enjoys baking, reading, and drinking Virginia wine.
One Hundred Percent Geared Towards a Woman and Her Needs
Katie was very warm. She was able to answer the questions that I had in a way that was easy for me to understand. It was almost strange to be associated with a professional entity that was 100% geared towards a woman and her needs. Even the directions to your law firm was extremely female oriented. Good job!
Allayed my concerns
Katie listened and was supportive. The consult allayed many of my concerns and affirmed much of what I thought I already knew. She was clear, knowledgeable and advising.
Felt at Ease
She made me feel much more at ease about the process, and spent time getting to know me as a person at the same time.
Thank You For All The Help!
I like the seminar. The speaker was very clear and friendly. I would like to come back to the next seminar. I wish I could have come before. Thank you for all the help!
Katie Is Terrific!
Katie is terrific! Wonderful, helpful, knowledgeable, and answered specific questions regarding military and civilian pensions. Huzzah to the firm and Katie's commitment to helping women!
Katie is helpful at Second Saturday Seminars
Katie Carter was open to questions and answered everything on the spot. Lots of resources and great information. I'm going to try the do-it-yourself separation agreement in the next couple months.
