Manassas Criminal Lawyers
Our Manassas defense attorneys have years of experience handling every type of criminal and traffic matter in Prince William County and surrounding areas. Their approach is simple: to prepare for each case as if it will go to trial, and to aggressively pursue every possible avenue of defense. Whatever charges you are facing, you can rely on our attorneys to guide you through the treacherous terrain of the criminal justice system—and fight for you every step of the way.
The Manassas area is not particularly friendly toward those facing criminal charges. In fact, Prince William County treats some offenses, such as theft crimes, much more harshly than surrounding areas. Moreover, those charged with crimes in the area often work in the government or Armed Forces—meaning a conviction could cost them not only jail time and a fine, but also their security clearance and even their career. It is imperative that anyone facing criminal charges in the Manassas area is represented by an attorney who understands the local system and the particular concerns of the individual whose liberty and livelihood is at stake.
Our criminal attorneys in Manassas have built a record of client satisfaction by aggressively representing our clients while understanding their particular needs and concerns.

Manassas Immigration Lawyers
Prince William County became the focus of national attention in 2008 when it enacted a controversial new policy targeting undocumented immigrants. Prince William became known as a hostile place for immigrants, specifically Hispanic ones, and the new policy drove away both undocumented and documented immigrants. Although Latinos have been returning to Prince William recently, it is now more important than ever that immigrants to the area secure representation by experienced attorneys—who understand both the federal immigration system and the needs and concerns of immigrants in the local area. The immigration attorneys at Livesay & Myers, P.C. stand ready to assist immigrants and their families in Prince William County and surrounding areas. See our Immigration Law page for more information.
