Effective And Compassionate Family Law Advocacy

Katherine D. Carlo

  • Partner


Alexandria, VA




Katherine D. Carlo is the managing partner of Lowe Carlo & Maupin. She is a 1991 graduate of James Madison University and a 1994 graduate of the University of Virginia School of Law. She has been with the firm her entire career and devotes her practice exclusively to Family Law. She represents clients in all areas of domestic relations including adoption, divorce, custody, visitation, equitable distribution, support, valuation of businesses and other property, the negotiation and preparation of both premarital agreements and comprehensive settlement agreements, and post-divorce enforcement and modification actions. She appears regularly in both juvenile and circuit courts throughout the Northern Virginia area, including the City of Alexandria and Arlington, Fairfax, Prince William, and Loudon counties.

Katie is unique in her ability to provide compassionate and straightforward advice to her clients and her ability to explain complicated legal matters in terms clients can understand while being sensitive to the emotional aspects of Family Law matters. While she will first seek to work with opposing counsels and find an amicable resolution to her clients' matters, she is always prepared to litigate when it would serve her client's interests. She has almost thirty years of trial experience and motions practice.

Katie has resided in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area her entire life and has lived with her husband in Alexandria for the past 25 years. Together they are the parents of two adult children and two dogs, Salty and River. When she is not working, Katie enjoys spending time on her boat with her husband and traveling (preferably somewhere with rollercoasters).
