Welcome to Redmon, Peyton & Braswell

  • Gant Redmon and Shawna

Redmon, Peyton & Braswell LLP is, by design, a small law firm. Many of us come from larger, AmLaw 100 firms, and our goal is to provide the same quality representation that clients expect from a large firm but at substantially lower costs. We strive to solve our clients’ problems in economically sensible ways.

Our lawyers are recognized as SuperLawyers and Rising Stars, listed among the Legal Elite, and rated AV® by their peers. Individual attorneys from the Firm have served as presidents of the Alexandria Bar Association, the Federal Bar Association (Northern Virginia Chapter), and the Northern Virginia Bankruptcy Bar Association. Our lawyers practice across the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area, mainly in Northern Virginia.

Our practice is business-oriented: Corporate, Commercial Transactions, Real Estate & Tax, Business Litigation, and Bankruptcy. Additionally, we have a respected Trust & Estates group, and we provide White Collar Defense representation in the federal and state courts.

The Firm’s offices are located in Old Town Alexandria, in the city courthouse complex diagonally across from Market Square. We are a three-minute walk from the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, and one mile from the Alexandria federal courthouse, the U.S. Patent & Trademark Office, and the King Street METRO station.
