Fairfax Reviews

ReviewsThe following is a sampling of client reviews for the attorneys in the Fairfax office of Livesay & Myers, P.C.:


“★★★★★ I can’t begin to express what a wonderful experience I had working with Matthew Smith and his paralegal, Caitlin Wilkinson. They were professional, thorough, knowledgeable and most of all, kind and understanding during a difficult and painful process. Divorce is a scary time and there’s no greater comfort than feeling you have the best on your side—and hiring Matthew is hiring the best. He consistently worked to balance what was best for my case based on his extensive experience, knowledge and genuine interest in my well-being, as well as my personal values and needs. He cared about my case and I always felt like a priority. Caitlin Wilkinson was an absolute joy—she took all of my calls as though I was speaking with a trusted advisor and friend. They worked diligently, efficiently and with genuine compassion to resolve my matter in a way that was better than I could have ever hoped for!” – G.B.

“★★★★★ My Attorney, Laila Raheen was phenomenal representing me in my divorce, there were several items and conditions that were very important for me to keep, and she was excellent in meeting my expectation of getting an excellent settlement agreement. I was divorced prior to my court hearing because she worked very hard to get the agreement done by the court date so that I can avoid the trouble and expense of going to trial. She made sure I understood every aspect of the settlement. Laila and Paralegal Margaret (Gigi) were excellent in dealing with my case and the issues that had come up and dealt with them in a timely and compassionate manner. Her guidance and patience made the divorce such an easy process. I wasn’t sure what to expect with a legal proceeding such as this, but Laila made the process seem effortless and I was thrilled with the result. Laila and Gigi were a joy to work with through a difficult time. I would highly recommend her and Livesay & Myers.” – Nydia C.

“To handle my divorce I worked with [Matthew] Smith and his paralegal Ms. Wilkinson. Upon the first meeting with Mr. Smith, he was very attentive to what I was looking for, answered my questions and made me feel comfortable. He didn’t talk to me like a lawyer, but as a friend that wanted the best for me and my situation. I did inform him I looked up the law firm online and saw that I could get a divorce for a low rate and that was the direction I wanted to take. Most Law Firms are in the money making business, but Mr. Smith took the time and advised me of my options and helped me decide what was best for me. Ultimately, I was able to take the less expensive route. Before starting the divorce process, I had this idea it would be stressful and too much to handle by myself. I was definitely wrong with that assumption. Ms. Wilkinson kept me informed, answered my questions and got back with me within a reasonable amount of time. As much as we emailed back and forth you would have thought I was their only client. Mr. Smith and Ms. Wilkinson are a dynamic team that I would highly recommend to someone else.” – Amber

“★★★★★ I have had quite a few experiences with family law attorneys and I have to say without a doubt that Livesay & Myers were easily the best. Laila Raheen and her assistant were competent, thorough and informative. Questions were answered without delay and tough legal jargon was quickly explained before I could even pick up the phone to ask. My case was settled out of court and within a timely manner. Highly recommended.” – TeAndre T.

“Livesay and Myers attorney, Matthew Smith, is top-notch as well as the entire team that worked to assist me with a complicated divorce case. Communications were timely, the timeline for completion was completely accurate, the cost was reasonable, and I received assurances through the entire process that the course of action was in my best interest. I cannot say enough good things about Matthew and his associates in the professional handling of my case as well as the peace of mind they gave to me. I would highly recommend Matthew and his team for legal services related to divorce. Thank you.” – Jean R.

“★★★★★ I am very happy with Attorney Laila Raheen’s representation in a child custody case. Throughout the process, her advice was spot on and critical to achieving a favorable outcome. Also appreciate the generous time spent prepping witnesses and friendly reminders of upcoming deadlines. Based on my experience with Laila, I wouldn’t hesitate to use Livesay & Myers in the future.”– Rob W.

“★★★★★ My experience with this firm involving a custody matter has been 1st Class. My attorney, Brianna Salerno, listened to my family matter and took the time to completely understand my situation. Ms. Salerno guided me towards thoughtful, caring, and logical solutions there were aligned with my intent and within the best interests of my family. I recommend Livesay & Myers to anyone in the Maryland/Virginia corridor that wants effective work without breaking the bank. I accomplished what I had to set out to do quickly and at fair billing. Kudos!” – Mike H.


“★★★★★ Jennifer Varughese handled our family’s immigration case with exceptional professionalism and incredible kindness! After searching for nearly a year for an attorney who would take on an expedited citizenship case with the unique circumstances of our family, we came across Livesay and Myers’ website and decided to write a short letter of inquiry. Within a day or two we received a very thorough and encouraging reply, and following our first appointment with Jennifer we had an absolute peace that our case would be in excellent hands. We really don’t have words to express our gratefulness to her in taking on our case and working so hard to effectively represent us. It is such a gift to know that each of our family members now has US citizenship, and an incredible blessing to have traveled that journey with such a highly qualified, committed and genuinely caring attorney!” – Roman C.

“★★★★★ My case was in very bad situation and needed an attorneys help. I was called along with my wife for the second interview in Aug for my 10 year green card because the immigration lawyer was not satisfied with the first interview. So I hired Livesay and Myers for my case, Karen [Williams] represented us and she helped us preparing for the interview. She understood our whole case and prepared us to see the case from the immigration office point of view and prepared us for the interview. The interview went ok but the immigration officer was not satisfied with the answer so he sent a letter in Oct for intends to deny petition and we had 30 days to respond to the letter. I was so worried, but Karen responded to the letter and cleared some misunderstandings and I received my 10 year green card in mail on Dec 31. Happy Ending :).” – Anonymous
