Caitlin Walters, Attorney at Law
1604 Hilltop West Executive Center, Suite 300
Virginia Beach, Virginia 23451
Caitlin Walters joined the Hofheimer Family Law Firm in 2013 after practicing at another local family law firm. Caitlin got her BS in History and Secondary Education from McKendree University in Illinois. She was also a member of Kappa Delta Pi, the education honor society. From there, she moved to Virginia Beach, Virginia to attend law school at Regent University, where she served as editor in chief of the esteemed Journal of International Law. She also interned at the Chesapeake Juvenile and Domestic Relations Court.
Following law school, Caitlin practiced at Phillips & Peters in Norfolk, Virginia. She handles many complex family law cases, but particularly enjoys custody cases. While at Phillips & Peters, Caitlin was certified by the Virginia courts to work as a Guardian ad litem, an attorney who represents children whose parents are involved in difficult custody cases. It is the job of the Guardian ad Litem to ultimately make recommendations to the court regarding appropriate placement for children, based on what is in the best interests of the child.
When Caitlin came to Hofheimer Family Law, she brought with her a unique understanding of the way local courts function and a passion for handling complicated custody cases. She is a knowledgeable but approachable attorney who is as comfortable drafting documents regarding complicated property distribution as litigating custody arrangements in front of a judge. Caitlin is a fierce advocate for her clients and a meticulous and incredibly detail oriented attorney.
Caitlin is happily married to her high school sweetheart, Lance, a gregarious former DJ turned IT staffing consultant, who she met when she was just 16 years old. She and her husband live in Virginia Beach with their dog, Carpenter. They are also active members in their church, First Baptist Church of Norfolk, where they both serve as young adult pastors and belong to a Christian worship band. In her spare time, Caitlin enjoys reading and music. She has been a member of her church choir from the age of 3, and can also play the trumpet and the piano. Caitlin really loves the St. Louis Cardinals, brightly colored sunglasses, and the great state of Missouri.
Though we can’t guarantee results, and every case is different, we’ve had some pretty happy clients over the years!
Ms. Walters gave me more insight and knowledge as to how my situation
She looked over everything I submitted and was prepared to speak to me, as well as knew how to answer the questions I had. She was very positive and gave me the entire picture vs just worst-case scenario or best case scenario. She really knew her stuff! I feel that she would be great to help with my situation. Caitlin gave me more insight and knowledge as to how my situation can be handled and what to expect.
Caitlin was very nice, patient and put my mind at ease
Caitlin understood my anxiety and was very reassuring. I wish the appointment could have been face-to-face but I totally agree a phone consult was the safest choice. It seems like your firm does an excellent job especially considering the COVID restrictions. I felt very comfortable talking to Caitlin and trust her to look out for my interests. I had a high level of anxiety. Just knowing that she will handle all of the legal details and will explain them in a way I'll understand is a big relief. I have heard of or have known women about to go through the divorce process. As I am about to go through it myself I will feel confident in recommending your firm to other women in my position.

I feel prepared to go to my court date
Caitlin was extremely helpful! She couldn’t have been more helpful over the phone than if I had been able to be there in person. She even brought it to my attention that I needed to send in my interrogatories by a certain date or I could be penalized. I feel prepared to go to my court date and feel confident in what I need to say to the judge.
She made me feel more confident and positive
Caitlin presented at the 2nd Saturday seminar I attended. It was very informative and helped me understand the crucial elements in divorce, what to expect and made me feel more confident & positive with representation from Hofheimer firm. Caitlin covered everything I wanted to know, she was very responsive and answered the questions I had correctly. I so appreciated the information shared.
I received the correct answer to my question and heard valuable facts
I attended the 2nd Saturday seminar and found Caitlin to be very informative. I had been asking questions about divorce, researching online, and I found I would hear many different answers. Coming to the seminar, I received the correct answer to my question and heard valuable facts. Caitlin was clear and she delivered the information in a personable way I related to. She also gave great examples. I may come back!
I believe these women could help any woman succeed in her case!
Caitlin outlined many options for me and was extremely helpful. I got a lot of valuable information, including an understanding how a separation agreement works. She was very focused on my needs and rights. She listened attentively and made me feel secure in her advice. My goal is to move out of state, which will be complicated, but she made these options easy to understand and weigh.

There’s nothing I didn’t like about this firm. Caitlin is awesome! They offer so many services and the attorney I met with was great. I felt like she really listened to my questions and was on my side about how I wanted to handle things going forward.
Nice and professional
I’m a going though a separation. I met with Caitlin and she was professional and to the point. I liked the information and felt comfortable enough to hire her.
The Husband Lies
I felt comfortable talking with Mrs. Walters and Lorna. If they had not advised me to go to the spousal support hearing I would have missed out on the small amount of support I was awarded. However, I am grateful to be awarded any amount. Mrs. Walters remembered me from the seminar, helped me put some significant points in my agreement and educated me on the next steps to take toward the divorce process. They educated me very well about what to expect. Although, he did sign the agreement I did not because my spouse HAD NOT filed his malpractice case and my attorney advised me not to sign. I was surprise he had not filed because he had been telling me that they were about to settle the case. As your book said the Husband LIES.
Comfortable with my plan
Caitlin listened and heard me and what I am hoping to achieve. I felt comfortable with the plan(s) I left with.
She was very knowledgeable and made me feel very welcomed
Caitlin was very welcoming and attentive to my requests and questions in regards to the divorce. She helped me understand what was missing and what needs to be done to move forward with my divorce. She made me feel at ease with the current situation.
She put my fears to rest
Caitlin immediately put my fears to rest. She listened answered my questions and gave me confidence that all was going to be right. Her quick manner at appraising the situation, checking and rechecking paperwork and confidence showed she knew what the next steps were to be. I needed quick answers and was able to get an immediate consultation. Felt there was honesty, thoroughness and confidence which I needed.
Law firm gave me hope
I left feeling like Caitlin was thoughtful and genuine in her advice responses. She gave me advice on how to carry on from this point out... with or w/o retaining her services, she helped me at least get my head in the game. There were things that I hadn't considered before, such as, I actually had to file for Custody and Visitation if I wanted to ask for time. This law firm gave me some hope and I felt like they did what they could to help me.
My best interest in mind
Caitlin was an absolute joy to work with, she put me at ease and worked very hard to get all of my needs and wants written down. She was very knowledge and caring. I felt she had my best interest in mind and was ready to do what ever needs to be done to help me in my situation.
No unanswered questions!
Caitlin was considerate and knowledgeable. She was very understanding and explained everything very well, without making me feel uneducated. I didn't leave the office with any unanswered questions.
Caitlin was very informative and covered all aspects of the divorce process. She was very helpful in answering questions and providing clarity to the group. I am very grateful this seminar was available to women. I've tried several attempts to seek legal guidance with unanswered questions and found little to no support from other firms without paying an upfront retainer fee.
This Is Information I Have Not Received From Prior Lawyers
From Custody Boot Camp:
How you present yourself in court is important and I was never coached on that. This also lets me know what to expect of my lawyer. I liked that Caitlin seemed to take her cases personally and not just as number.
Nothing But Pure Awesomeness!
From Custody Bootcamp:
Invaluable information! I've had three court appointed attorneys in the past three years and never knew how much of an injustice was being done to my case and what I am actually entitled to do.
