Brandi R. Howell
Brandi Howell is an associate attorney at Livesay & Myers, P.C. practicing exclusively family law. Her practice covers every type of family law matter in Virginia, including separation, divorce, custody, visitation and support cases. Ms. Howell works in the firm’s offices in Fairfax and Manassas, and represents clients all across Northern Virginia.
Ms. Howell is a longtime resident of Northern Virginia. She was born at Andrews Air Force Base in Maryland. Her father was on active duty in the U.S. Air Force, and the family moved around a lot during her early years. Ms. Howell matriculated the Fairfax County public school system beginning in second grade until she graduated from Mount Vernon High School. She then traveled to Georgia to attend an all women’s college, but knew that she wanted to return to the DMV area and live close to family and friends. Ms. Howell returned to the D.C. area for law school, and entered private practice at a law firm in Fairfax in 2007.
Although she worked as a defense attorney in the field of workers compensation, Ms. Howell always had an interest in family law. After observing family, friends, and colleagues struggle with their own family law issues, she wanted to become an attorney who could offer guidance, knowledge, and possibly reason during these difficult times. After being married for 14 years and having three children of her own, Ms. Howell believed she would be able to relate to those facing family law issues. With over a decade of legal experience, Ms. Howell knew that she would be able to help them get the best possible results under the law. So, Ms. Howell decided to transition to family law, joining Livesay & Myers, P.C. in January 2018.
Ms. Howell currently holds a perfect 10.0 rating from Justia.
Brandi Howell resides in Prince William County with her husband and three children.
