Fairfax Criminal, Immigration & Divorce Lawyers
Livesay & Myers, P.C. has a team of family law, immigration, criminal and divorce attorneys in Fairfax, representing clients in Fairfax, Alexandria, Arlington and all across Northern Virginia.
A good lawyer knows the law, a great lawyer knows the judge—and the court system. Nowhere is that more true than Northern Virginia, which features some of the most demanding jurisdictions in the Commonwealth. In Fairfax County, for example, the Fairfax Circuit Court Practice Manual lays out procedures for everything that might happen in a Fairfax divorce, from the initial filing through trial. The rules are so specific as to require that certain types of pleadings are to be filed on specific types of colored paper. These requirements may seem overwhelming to lawyers from outside jurisdictions, but Livesay & Myers has a group of Fairfax attorneys who practice in these courts every day, who live and breathe the local rules, who know the judges, the system and the law.
