Northern Virginia family law attorney Margaret Gannon is the exception to the old joke about the DC metro area that “nobody is really from here.”  Margaret grew up in the Northern Virginia legal community, working first with her father at his well-known office in Alexandria. Practicing since 1990, Margaret took a break for a few years to raise her three sons, all now in college. During her hiatus, Margaret became an expert on caring for children with special medical needs, navigating Individualized Education Programs and the services that go along with it.

Margaret attended the University of Virginia for her undergraduate degree and earned her law degree from the American University School of Law. She is a member of the Alexandria and Fairfax County Bar Associations.
