John Crouch is experienced in all four ways of resolving family law issues: negotiation, collaboration, mediation, and litigation. In 1995 he joined and expanded the firm's interstate and international family law practice, and its emphasis on diplomatic, military, civil service and international-organization employees. Having taken every class that William & Mary's law school offered in wills, estates and related tax issues, he added that work to his practice, starting with divorced people and diplomatic families and the specific concerns they face when making their wills and naming guardians and trustees for their children.

John has always looked for ways to reduce the damage that divorce does to people and improve the system. While still in law school, he          was trained as a family law mediator and served as a court-appointed special advocate for children in the Newport News Juvenile Court. He has co-chaired the American Bar Association's Child Custody Committee, and was Chair and lead drafter of its Committee that wrote standards for child representation in custody cases, which later became the Uniform Representation of Children in Abuse, Neglect, and Custody Proceedings Act. He has also chaired the Arlington County Bar Association's Family Law Section.

John was the first Virginian to join the movement for Collaborative Divorce and one of the very first Virginians to get trained in collaborative law and began practicing it. He has served as president and in other positions in the regional collaborative practice group, which is now known as the Collaborative Professionals of Northern Virginia. He has also been involved in the healthy marriage movement, which works to give couples the knowledge, tools and opportunities to try to save and improve their marriages.  John recently became a Fellow of the International Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers. Having long been active in the International Family Law Committees of the American Bar Association, he is also a member of the International Academy of Collaborative Professionals and the International Society of Family Law.
