50 Years of Client Service

Firm History

On July 1, 1974, Joel Birken, Jon Broome and the late Jim Rees founded Rees, Broome & Birken, PC, in Tysons, Virginia. The three shared the vision of offering superior legal representation in a friendly, relaxed environment in the Northern Virginia suburbs of Washington, D.C. Fifty years later, we still operate under those same principals. Today, Rees Broome has grown to be one of Virginia’s top law firms, with 50 attorneys and proven expertise in the areas of civil litigation, business, tax, estates, employment, construction defect liability, homeowners’ and condominium associations, zoning, commercial real estate and creditors’ rights work. In addition to our main office in Tysons, we have growing offices in Leesburg, Virginia and Bethesda, Maryland.

For 50 years, our clients have trusted our ability to lead with knowledge, wisdom and confidence. And we continue to strive every day to provide each client the best possible representation and service experience.
