Teresa L. Donaldson

Originally from Columbia, Maryland, Teresa joins Patzig Law to fulfill her longtime dream of practicing in family law while living at the beach. After obtaining her bachelor's degree from the University of Maryland, College Park, and her Juris Doctor from The College of William and Mary, she initially returned to her hometown, but almost immediately pivoted back to Virginia to start both her career and her family.


As a parent in a blended family, Teresa appreciates the complex emotional factors at play when families need to restructure. She believes family law issues require both strategy and compassion, and that clients deserve an advocate who values finding long-term solutions
