Andrew Tank Reviews
Andy Tank is an outstanding attorney. His demeanor is calm, his intellect is razor sharp, and his grasp of not just legalities but human nature is amazing. He has compassion which cloaks a backbone of steel. He is understanding and generous and the best expert to have in a legal crisis or potential crisis. He promotes the return of sanity in an unsettled world and is simply the best attorney all around. Highly recommend him.

Andy 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!

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.

Livesay & Myers represented me in my family matter and they were great. Communication was outstanding and listening to my needs and concerns was their priority. Highly recommend Andrew Tank who represented me during my matter.

I wanted to take a moment and publicly thank the firm of Livesay and Myers for placing me with attorney Andrew Tank for my divorce proceedings. No matter if the divorce is contested or uncontested there comes a stress level that is difficult to manage. To make my situation more stressful, I had hired another attorney to represent me from another firm and the relationship just did not work out. I set out to find the best representation and I found Livesay and Myers. From my initial consultation with Andy I knew I had found the best attorney for me. Andy comes with many awards and accolades, and he has surpassed all these with his calm demeanor, professional knowledge and most importantly with me is Andy became my friend. It is also important for me to mention Lisa Collins, Andy’s paralegal. Lisa is also a legal process professional but we had many chats along the way that helped get me through the process. Thank you Lisa for all you’ve done for me. In closing and importantly, Andy was able to navigate the divorce waters and get me a settlement that was fair and amicable. Livesay and Myers will always be my choice if legal representation is ever needed again. I enthusiastically recommend Livesay and Myers and will ask for Andy and Lisa by name. Andy and Lisa changed my life for the better and I know I can never repay their support for me!

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.

My first attorney ran up legal bills (putting me into debt) without delivering services so 6 weeks prior to my trial I had to fire my attorney. Left with very little money and time, no one was willing on such a short notice to take on a complicated case. Except for Andy Tank. I remember our first phone call. I was outside another attorney’s office (one who had declined me but asked me to call Andy) and he spoke to me for 30 mins as I ran thru my case. He said it would be tough be he would work with me to get the best possible resolution and for a very fair price. Along with Lisa his paralegal, we finalized the divorce and custody. Like many cases, the odds of going back to court are high, so when I was in that predicament I reached out to Andy again only to find out he left that firm. A google search led me to him at his new practice at Livesay & Myers and we again tackled the case together and led me to an outcome that could not have been better for my children and I. He is my attorney and friend for life and it is my pleasure to write this review for him and Lisa.
It’s hard to know where to begin in saying thanks to Andy Tank, his paralegal Lisa Collins, and the entire L&M team for making the innately stressful process of separation and divorce as gentle and simple as possible. My entire experience with L&M’s Fairfax office, from their wonderful receptionist, Renee (?!? I hope I’m close on the name?!?), who graciously walked through directions with my Uber driver, to working with Andy and Lisa to find the best solution for my son and me, right through to the billing department staff: at each and every step I felt I had the support of an entire team…and that feeling, to me, was priceless! (Although, being who I am, I had already diligently checked rates and fees and L&M’s fees are incredibly modest compared to other firms ☺️). That being said, if you need an attorney who will take the time to authentically listen to find out who you are and what you need; who will offer the best advice for you and your family (without self-interest); and who will proactively support you throughout the process, I recommend Andy and his team without hesitation! I am, and will always be, incredibly grateful to the L&M team and the roles they played in helping me successfully start the next chapter in my life!

Andy Tank and Lisa (his paralegal) were extremely helpful and responsive in the property settlement agreement and divorce process. Each offered timely and sound advice that put me at ease during a stressful period of my life. I really appreciated their assistance and would recommend their legal expertise in family law to anyone.
My attorney Andrew Tank and paralegal Karen Kessel are amazing. They worked with me through all of my concerns and questions very quickly and professionally. Great communication and excellent services. It was a pleasure to work with them. I highly recommend Mr. Tank and Karen Kessel. Thanks to you and your team for the great service!
I am very pleased with the level of care I received from this firm. I do not think that I would have received this same level of effort elsewhere. They helped me every step of the way through my divorce process and kept me informed about all the details I needed to be aware of. Andy Tank was very courteous and informative when I did my initial consultation. Stephanie was great in setting up the appointment over the phone as my time is very limited due to work hours. Karen Kessel (!!!!!!) was pretty great with everything. She is the paralegal that was emailing and checking on my divorce status in the court system. If you know anything about law firms, then you will know that having a great paralegal who knows what they are doing is a requirement, and Livesay & Myers seems to have that in Karen. Cindy Ornelas kept my retainer balance updated and made sure to send me updates of where my remaining money was at so I was always aware of what I could expect back from them. Thank you for everything and helping me finalize my divorce as well as getting on paper that I have full custody of my baby girl. If you need professionalism, friendliness, and detail oriented workers, then Livesay & Myers is 110% recommended by me.
