The following is a sampling of client reviews for our Arlington family lawyers:


I have used Andrew Tank thrice in dealing with my former spouse. He has the depth of insight and knowledge that will be of comfort when in the thick of litigation. He has successfully aided me in discovery motions, successfully defeated a protective order in 30 minutes, and has been a constant source of encouragement and sanity in the insanity of nuances within the family law. The outstanding thing that would stand out the most when I recommend him is he is thorough, organized, moral and ethical.

You didn’t want to be here, reading divorce lawyer reviews. You’re stressed and hurt. You know that picking the right lawyer could be the difference between getting on with your life sooner or dealing with years of expense and frustration. Lucky for you, you found Livesay & Myers. Brianna Salerno and her paralegal were for me the flawlessly competent and sympathetic legal team I needed. I recommend them and the folks at Livesay & Myers in the highest possible terms. They helped me get through my unwelcome divorce in less time and for less money that I imagined possible. Definitely talk to several firms (I did), but in the end I am confident that if you select Livesay & Myers you will have made the right choice.

I highly recommend Livesay & Myers to serve your custody agreement/divorce needs and work out your disputes, and more specifically recommend attorney Christian Campbell. I hired him a couple years after my divorce to work out some custody disputes. He is one of the best attorneys I have ever worked with and from the first meeting, he explained everything to me thoroughly but also really took the time to listen to my situation, which was very complicated and messy. Once I retained him, the level of communication didn’t stop throughout the months it took to finally settle my case. I think this was one of the biggest things that stuck out to me because I had not had the same level of communication with my previous divorce attorney from a different practice. He would even call me on the phone if needed to discuss matters, which was really great. So, it was not only refreshing, but his legal representation help restore my faith in the justice system. Christian is also extremely knowledgeable and took the time to explain the legal terms in a way I would understand, and give me advice to make the best possible choices that will further help benefit my child who was in the middle of the custody dispute. He was able to negotiate terms for my settlement that were fair and understand the limits I had, and on the other hand, I knew if I had to go to trial that it would be the same level of excellence. Tatyana Spurgeon, who helped on my case as well was also extremely communicative. Pretty much everyone I came across with at Livesay & Myers from the partner Matthew Smith to the billing ladies were friendly and courteous. This law firm stands above the rest. Thanks again Christian.

Andrew Tank recently represented me in a Divorce/Child Custody case. I honestly can’t imagine having to have gone through the ordeal without Andy. He is incredibly knowledgeable, honest, and did everything in his power to provide a great outcome for me. Beyond that he is compassionate and understanding. His Paralegal Karen Kessel is outstanding. Her attention to detail and professionalism were instrumental in ensuring I had a fair resolution to my case. You can’t do better than Andy and Karen!

– John H.


I just wanted to take some time to say that Livesay & Myers, P.C. have been very professional. Specifically Brianna Salerno and her paralegals have been amazing this past year in finalizing my divorce, custody, and child support. They never dropped off, always followed up and had this amazing way about them that made me feel like I made the right choice. And obviously I did, I was able to keep my son, so these 5 stars aren’t doing them justice. Thank you all so much!

I used Livesay & Myers for my divorce. I came to the firm based on other great reviews I read, and thought it important I leave my own review. Christian Campbell was the attorney, and Tatyana Spurgeon senior paralegal. Christian made the process very easy from the start, particularly by walking me through it, and answering the tons of questions I always have. Most important, he looked out for my best interests as we developed strategy and completed required paperwork to ensure the best possible language was used. There were some nuances in my divorce, so strategy was a big need they met. Tatyana was also great – providing clear, detailed explanations and she was extremely responsive. Divorce processes are never fun. But I was relieved that I didn’t have to worry about the legal side, and they made it easy. I’ve worked with other firms on various matters, but I’d say Livesay & Myers is top of my list. Professional. Knowledgeable. Prompt. Responsive. And all the people I encountered from front office staff through those mentioned here were simply GREAT. I highly recommend this firm. I hope not to need them for something, but if I do I will be back. STELLAR JOB!! And Thank You All!

I retained Andrew Tank after my original attorney left family law, and left me in a bind less with less than a month to contest a ‘vague,’ one-sided PSA/MSA. With an uphill battle against an irrational ex who refused to make rational joint legal co-parenting decisions, but instead used our 2 children as pawns for financial gain and control, I consulted with Mr. Tank. The primary focus was on the stability of the children, seeing that their best interests were considered. Mr. Tank immediately helped protect them from the parental alienation when reason wasn’t working, and filed motions that forced the ex to allow them to attend therapy, and stopped her from moving them far away from me. Mr. Tank understood it was all about money to the ex, and found ways to modify the custody schedule of the PSA that was deemed ‘unmodifiable’ by opposing counsel. His knowledge of the law, positive relationships with the representatives of the court, and ability to maintain the children’s best interests not only benefited their mental health, but also preserved my joint legal rights to continue my role in their lives. Dealing with manipulative opposition is a difficult task, but Mr. Tank did not stand down to the ‘bullies’ during negotiation/litigation, and made it possible that I remained an equal parent, not just a ‘visitor’ in my own children’s lives.If you are looking for an experienced, respected, and ethical attorney that will actually keep ‘family’ as the focus in ‘family law,’ I highly recommend Mr. Tank.

Livesay & Myers, P.C. was outstanding in my recent Separation Agreement and Divorce proceedings. Specifically, Brianna Salerno was over-the-top amazing! She brought years of subject matter expertise, understanding and empathy to my situation. Throughout the most trying time in my young adult life, I was able to count on Brianna’s professionalism, tact and motivational attitude. I would HIGHLY recommend Brianna Salerno and the Livesay & Myers practice to anyone facing a major life change such as a divorce. I cannot thank Brianna and her team enough for the superb support throughout this entire process! Brianna’s paralegal was an unbelievable added asset to this process as well! I had several attorneys throughout my career for varying reasons, and the Livesay & Myers practice is bar none above the rest! Overall, my experience was excellent and I cannot thank them enough for their unwavering support, compassion, and professionalism!

– Jordan H.


Livesay & Myers was my first choice for help with my child support case. Christian Campbell & Tatyana Spurgeon worked with me on a last minute representation, were very knowledgeable, and did not disappoint IN ANY WAY. They kept me updated on everything, answered all my questions, and fought for me. They truly made me feel like a valued client and not just another paycheck! Thank you Christian, Tatyana, and a Livesay & Myers!
