Amanda Kimble Reviews
I need a sixth star here. I was honestly thinking long before writing this review how, out of all the professionals I have worked with in my fifty-seven years…all the doctors, lawyers, accountants…my experience with Amanda Kimble was probably the most positive I have ever had. I found her when my spouse, who is himself an attorney, went out and hired not one but two sets of lawyers. I realized I needed representation. Amanda Kimble was MY advocate. All through the process she was on MY side. That feeling is amazing. All the stuff you have to go through in divorcing she explained clearly and patiently (and never condescendingly). My spouse and I are LGBTQ which brought up a whole set of legal issues. She was 100% confident and knowledgeable, and never wavered. She let me have my time in the process while gently keeping things moving along. Her ‘desk side’ manner whenever we met set the perfect tone of lightness and heaviness. It made what could have been a much worse process actually not so bad. From the start to the finish, I felt taken care of, and I am so grateful Amanda represented me. In the end, my spouse, apparently socked with huge bills from his own attorney, asked us to file the papers and finish up. The way Amanda did it (actually showing up in court) was so professional and competent that I think I may have gone up a little in my ex’s estimation for having hired a better attorney than his! Six stars for sure.

After 34 years of marriage, I needed a divorce attorney! I reached out to Amanda Kimble at Livesay and Myers. She and her team were absolutely fantastic! After researching firms online, I contacted Livesay & Myers because of the information their website provided about the practice, their focus, their experience and bios on their attorneys. I felt heard from my first contact with their office. They were always professional and responded quickly to phone or emails from me. Kindness and compassion are very important parts of their services as well. I needed to feel supported, understood and have an attorney who would guide me and make sure I understood every phase or part of the case, Amanda and her team surpassed my hopes and expectations throughout the most difficult time in my life.

I came across L&M when I googled best family law firm in Northern Virginia. I had a consultation with Amanda Kimble in May of 2020 when I was in the initial stages of a divorce with a minor child. Ms. Kimble explained the process in Virginia regarding time frame and required action. Fast forward several months when I was ready to move forward. Ms. Kimble and her paralegal, Evelyn Ezeta, helped me complete an agreement prior to filing that defined the custody, visitation, and child support costs. I always felt reassured by their exemplary level of professionalism and responsiveness. When there was a mishap with the opposing counsel who filed the paperwork with a local Post Office without addressee or postage, Ms. Kimble helped coordinate prompt pick up of the remaining copy needed for court. Ms. Ezeta kept me abreast of any changes or modifications needed during the process. This was not at all an easy journey but I knew I had the best attorney in my corner. Further, the agreement was drafted with long term changes in mind as my child grows up. I really felt that my best interest and that of my child was kept in mind. I hope not to need their services in the future but am prepared to contact them should the need arise. I would highly recommend Ms. Kimble and Ms. Ezeta to anyone needed legal expertise in family law.

I have long been skeptical of lawyers, however, Amanda Kimble was an exceptional attorney who worked hard on my case, and helped set me more at ease with the process. She took the time to fully answer all of my questions, disarm my nerves, and presented both points and counterpoints to each scenario we faced. At no time did I feel as if I were just another client, just another case. Anyone who knows me knows that I do not trust easily, however, I came to trust Amanda to represent my interests and give me the unvarnished truth about everything. I also do not like to leave reviews, but I felt that Amanda deserved recognition for the outstanding job she did in representing me and my interests. I hope never to have to do this again, but if I do, I’m calling Amanda.

Both attorney Amanda Kimble and paralegal Michelle Evans were very helpful when it came to my divorce. Amanda had a call with me and walked me through all of the steps, the requirements, and the timeline. Michelle ensured she followed up with all of my requests and confirmed receipt of all the documents I sent both via mail and email. It was an absolutely seamless process working with these two. I’ve never worked with any other attorneys, so they both set the bar very high. Thanks so much for making this as easy and quick as possible

Amanda Kimble and Michelle Evans were great! I had to place my divorce case on file and without hesitation and great appreciation Amanda picked up the case. She did an excellent job of choosing the best method to proceed and got the final decree quickly. I had roots with this firm and went back because of their professional and personal approach to challenging life changes and I was never disappointed. The divorce process was perfected and I can’t thank them enough. Not one call or email went unanswered – they explained everything! Excellent and lawyer and excellent legal assistant with great customer service!

My first experience with a divorce lawyer left me so scarred, I then decided to use a mediator instead. Big mistake in not trying to do some more research and find a law firm who is going to handle things in a professional, but not aggressive way. Going through mediation can result in an outcome that perhaps you will end up regretting as you were not fully aware of the consequences. I learned the hard way that once your divorce has been finalized, changes are almost impossible and can potentially cost you a lot of money in legal fees. Six years after my divorce, I needed to correct a couple of bad decisions stemming from my mediation, and a friend of mine recommended Amanda Kimble at Livesay & Myers. I can’t say enough good things about my experience with a law firm this time around. From setting up my appointments through Tracy at their Ashburn office to working with Amanda on my issues, I felt like they truly cared about my situation, and were trying not only to find a good solution, but to provide me with support during the process. Amanda is a truly gifted, extremely sharp individual who is able to almost immediately grasp what you are trying to convey, explains the law in a way you are able to understand, and works with you to find a good resolution to your issues. After successfully resolving my property distribution and custody issues with my now-willing-to-work-with-me ex-husband, I told Tracy at the office that, if I had engaged Amanda’s services the first time around, I would have never been in the situation I was in years later. Divorce is a terribly difficult thing to go through, but with the right, compassionate, and competent legal representation, the experience can be less so.

We were seeking grandparent visitation, which is very hard to get; Amanda Kimble was very knowledgeable and very straightforward with us about our chances and the reality of our situation. This happened at the start of COVID and it took our case months to court, she kept us apprised of all of the delays and changes and helped us to keep faith. In the end, we did receive visitation and were reunited with our grandchildren. Thank you Livesay and Myers for all of the professionalism. We will recommend you to anyone looking for your services!

Had a great experience retaining the services of Livesay & Myers to help me navigate my separation/divorce and would highly recommend them to anyone else going through the same. Everything went smoothly, from timely answering my questions to helping me draft a separation/property settlement agreement and through filing the divorce paperwork with the court on my behalf. I felt very at ease and confident in all the guidance and services I received from attorney Amanda Kimble and paralegals Rossimar Membreno and Cassie Murphy. Thank you again. 🙂
Divorce can be scary, isolating and financially challenging under even the best of circumstances and you want a competent attorney by your side for it. When choosing which firm to work with, I met with several but ultimately decided to work with Amanda Kimble b/c I felt she had a true mastery of the legal system and would take the time to understand the unique complexities of my situation. I always felt like my case was a priority and that she was fighting for my best interests. She was a clear communicator and ensured I understood every part of the process in detail. Her and her team were always quick to respond and mindful of how to move the process along in a way that didn’t cost me unnecessary money. The gravity of the decisions you make regarding divorce and custody can be overwhelming, but Amanda supported me by sharing all available avenues for resolution and walking through the impact of those decisions until I was completely satisfied with the outcome. While I hope to never require her services again, I would not hesitate to engage Amanda and the Livesay & Myers team should I need to and would wholeheartedly recommend them to others. Thank you again to Amanda, Carl, Lindsey and your entire staff for a job well done. I am so appreciative of all of your efforts and compassion during this process.
