The Virginia Beach firm Poole Mahoney PC is spinning-off its family-law practice and changing its name to Poole Brooke Plumlee PC.

Albert H. Poole, the firm’s managing shareholder, said the move is part of a long-term strategic plan that reflects a natural market segmentation.

“Commercial practice firms like ours which represent businesses and organizations are benefitting from an increased focus on corporate, litigation and estate planning matters while moving away from a general family law department,” he said. “In addition, across the country, family-law practitioners are seeing benefits to clients from organizing into boutique firms that are focused solely on domestic relations matters such as divorce and custody.”

Beginning in January, Poole Mahoney PC will begin operating under its new name.

The name of the new family law firm will be Mahoney Nashatka Richmond PLLC and will have five lawyers. It will be located next to Poole Brooke Plumlee.

“The boutique format will enable us all to provide more focused service to our clients,” says Reeves Mahoney, previously the leader of the family law practice at Poole Mahoney PC. “

Among those joining Mahoney in the new firm will be name partners Shantell Nashatka and Andrew Richmond.
