★★★★★

I needed the best attorney possible to help me through a divorce that I felt would be hard and difficult. I was referred to Ms. Anneshia Miller Grant of Livesay & Myers Law Firm. She was amazing! Step by step, she knew exactly what to do in every situation she encountered. She worked hard and diligently with confidence, professionalism, knowledge and ease. She was always well prepared, aggressive in getting the job done and worked in a timely manner. I was well informed, knew daily what was happening during my case which is very important to a client. She is an excellent attorney. Her performance and knowledge in her profession was outstanding! I am very satisfied with the results of my case. I highly recommend Ms. Miller Grant to anyone in need of an attorney who seems so personally dedicated in working hard to get the best results for her clients. Thank you Ms. Miller Grant and your staff at Livesay & Myers!

I retained Lindsay Connolly to handle a divorce with custody that was finalized June 2020. We didn’t have lots of assets to fight over but my ex husband was very, very difficult to work with. Lindsay was the absolute best help to get me through this mess! She provided expert guidance and advice helping me make the right decisions & she stayed on top of things even when I was otherwise distracted myself. She never let the process stall out—even during the middle of a pandemic! Everyone at her firm—the paralegals & other support staff were similarly wonderful. Thanks to her I am happily divorced & highly recommend her services.

This law firm never stops working for you. Sarah Patras was our attorney in a Family case where a lot of paperwork was involved and a lot of serious issues and inaccurate information needed to be addressed. Ms. Patras was optimistic from the beginning and gave us the confidence to move forward even when some other issues came up. Their paralegal Ashley Constant was always available even when Ms. Patras was tied up and they both stayed in constant communication throughout the entire ordeal. I could not be happier with the representation of Ms. Patras or the assistance of Ms. Constant. If you have a family law case you could not ask for a better fighter to stand up for you in court or with DSS. Livesay and Myers will truly fight to win your case and keep in contact every step of the way. This is a law firm you can trust. Thank you Sarah and Ashley and thank you Livesay and Myers.

Jasmine Moore is truly an outstanding attorney. She has a beautiful spirit, fierce nature, and is a true go getter; she was made for this. Ms. Moore represented me in custody/visitation and child support cases. Ms. Moore was super attentive and communicative (she made it feel as though I was her only client). Ms. Moore left no stone unturned and always went above and beyond in representing and advocating for me (and my baby girls). Ms. Moore presented as confident and no nonsense. Ms. Moore’s emotional intelligence is unmatched; she maintains poise and focus at all times. This was of immeasurable value in my extremely high conflict cases. She was just what my family needed. You can count on Ms. Moore being professional, knowledgeable, committed, honest, organized, detail-oriented, proactive, resourceful. She’s in it to win it from the beginning to the end; Ms. Moore is a true champion of justice. I am forever thankful that she was my attorney.

I had the privilege and pleasure of having Ms. Anneshia Miller Grant represent me in my recent divorce. Upon first meeting and consulting with Ms. Miller Grant, it was evident that she was not only knowledgeable about the law, but that she was most importantly very personable and would ensure that my voice was heard. She never made me feel as though I’d hired her to tell my story “her” way, but she created an environment that assured me that she and I were in a partnership. There were so many teachable moments during this experience, and Ms. Miller Grant was selfless and used them all to make sure I understood what she was doing and why. Anneshia was very careful to include me on all aspects of my case by continuously communicating with me, and I trusted every decision she made and every piece of advice she gave. Her professionalism and responsiveness are top-notch, and her keen ability to articulate and thoroughly explain the laws that concerned my case (in laymen’s terms), were what I needed most during that vulnerable period of life altering decision making. I could not have imagined better representation than what Ms. Miller Grant provided. I would choose her first every time if I needed counsel, and would, without question, respect her recommendations and advice. The outcome of my case was positive and I know it was only due to the exemplary representation I received from Livesay & Myers. I highly recommend Ms. Anneshia Miller Grant to anyone in need of legal assistance in a divorce or separation matter.

★★★★★

I have nothing but wonderful things to say about this firm. I had the privilege of working with Lindsay Connolly and her paralegal Matthew Hall and words cannot describe how thankful I am for them and all of their dedication and hard work. I hired Lindsay for a difficult custody case. She was always upfront, professional, organized, punctual, and determined to do everything in her power to make sure I received custody of my children. Truthfully, it’s disappointing to know our time has come to an end (as thankful as I am that it is). However, I can confidently say I would trust and recommend Lindsay to take on any case involving child custody and/or child support. I can’t thank her and Matt enough for giving me the peace of mind I was so desperately searching and praying for. If you’re looking for an attorney that is willing to go above and beyond and genuinely cares for their client, this is your woman!

– Casey L.

★★★★★

I hired Sarah Patras for my divorce. The same day I hired her, Ms. Sarah and her paralegal Ashley Constant started on my case, clarifying each step to me and following the progress of my case in the court system and emailing me about it daily. I did not have time to be stressed as they do not leave you in the dark waiting for what will happen next. I give them all my respect for the professional way they deal with their clients.

Jasmine Moore represented me in a custody case regarding my 12 year old where his father was requesting a drastic change in the visitation we have had for most of my son’s life. I had a lot of anxiety surrounding this process and felt very uneducated and unprepared. Jasmine put my mind at ease from the beginning and guided me each step of the way to help me feel as prepared as possible. I had a lot of questions and she took time to answer each one. She did an excellent job advocating for me and my son and presenting my case to show the drastic change being requested would be detrimental to my son. In the end, our custody and visitation remained the same. If I ever find myself in this situation again, she will be my first phone call!

★★★★★

Anneshia Miller Grant was very professional in her demeanor. She was very knowledgeable with the presentation of my case. I was impressed Anneshia’s achievements which I found on the law firm’s website when searching for lawyers. When I met with her, I had a feeling of confidence from her and reassurance by her. As a dedicated father I found it a struggle with my ex-wife allowing me to see my son and daughter. Ms. Grant was strong and calm and she guided me through a very difficult chapter of life. It felt like Ms. Grant was personally invested in my case. She was always prompt in responding to whatever curve ball was thrown in my case. Ms. Grant and she was able to answer all of my questions and she was very confident about my case. A father who was deployed during the custody battle, Ms Grant provided outstanding feedback and will to work around the hour difference. Ms. Grant kept me informed throughout the whole process. Ms. Grant is an amazing attorney and I am very satisfied with her work. Outstanding.

– Jerry

★★★★★

I hired Lindsay Connolly for a divorce case and a protective order case. I was in a really bad place when I came to Lindsay—I was fighting false allegations of family abuse. She was able to help me through my divorce, retaining my visitation rights, and got the protective order dismissed. I really thought things were hopeless but after working with her she was able to show the courts what was really going on. She was always mindful of what she was billing me and tried to save me money where she could. She underpromised and overdelivered every time. If you’re going through a divorce, hire her.

– Robert L.

★★★★★

I hired Sarah Patras in regards to a Property Settlement and Custody Agreement, as well as my divorce. Sarah, as well as paralegal Ashley Constant did a fantastic job! They were both very easy to get in contact with, whether by phone or email, always answered my questions thoroughly, and assisted greatly in getting my divorce finalized in a timely manner. I highly recommend both of them!

– Brooke K.

★★★★★

Highly recommend Livesay & Myers. The professionalism is spectacular and they ensure their clients needs are met. Jasmine Moore was assigned to my case regarding custody and her work ethic is out of this world. Determined to get the best results for her client, and a great individual.

– DeVante K.
