Founded in 1986 in McLean, Virginia, and we continually took pride in protecting, furthering, and advocating for the best interests of our clients with a commitment to personal service and a high level of professionalism.


We provided legal services for clients throughout Northern Virginia in all areas of family law, including divorce, child custody, child support, spousal support, and the division of marital property, assets and retirement benefits, through litigation, negotiation, mediation, Collaborative Practice.  We strove to assist clients and protect their interests with a focus on resolving divorce and family law matters with an acceptable settlement, through the use of negotiation, mediation, or the Collaborative Law process.  When such means of resolution were not possible, inappropriate, or unfruitful we sought to resolve divorce and family law matters through litigation to protect our client's interests.

In July of 2018 Frances Fite, the founding member of the firm passed away after a courageous struggle following a terrible accident.  We at Fite, O'Brien & Anderson were devastated, as were the countless people with whom Francie came into contact while she practiced law.

We are saddened about the closing of the firm, but we are excited about our new endeavors and opportunities.  We would like to thank all of our former clients and colleagues for making our practice what it became.
