Christine Hissong is a Collaboratively trained family law attorney, certified mediator, and transformative coach practicing in Northern Virginia. A former litigator, Christine has remodeled her practice to serve her clients in out-of-court resolution processes, including mediation, Collaborative divorce, negotiation, and coaching. Over the years, litigation has become more costly, more contentious, and more devastating for families, and access to the Courts has become increasingly difficult. Christine thinks it is imperative that her clients have the opportunity to engage in more cost-effective, respectful, and productive ways to address their Cohabitation Agreements, Pre-nuptial Agreements, separations, and divorces. Further, keeping in line with self-determination and empowerment during transformation, Christine has studied as a transformative coach, and she partners with her coaching clients as they discover their passions and find the answers they need to transform their lives in ways to increase peace and joy. Christine has been recognized by Super Lawyers Magazine as a Virginia Super Lawyer. She is a Virginia Lawyers Weekly Honoree in the 2021 class of Influential Woman of Law in Virginia. Christine has been certified as a mediator by the Judicial Counsel of Virginia, and she serves as a roster mediator for the Fairfax County Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court. She is the past President, past Membership Chair, and current Secretary of the Collaborative Professionals of Northern Virginia. Christine is the Co-Chair of the Fairfax County Bar Association Alternative Dispute Resolution Section
