The following is a sampling of client reviews for our family law attorneys in Manassas:


I was fortunate to locate the best team – hands down. Seeking an uncontested divorce while serving in the military was a simple matter for my attorney Jonathan McHugh and his paralegals. A life changing event was made calm that guaranteed my peace of mind. The team’s transparency in all matters and their expeditiousness resulted in a successful outcome that benefited all parties. The documentation requirements were made simple compared to online, do-it-yourself sites. The firm was never late, always prompt, and I never felt like I was hanging on for information. Any and all questions I had were answered in full with professionalism and respect from the Livesay & Myers Law Firm. This firm served as the best and most viable option; I truly lucked out in stumbling upon the best law firm that Northern Virginia has to offer. There is no question I would recommend Mr. McHugh and his team to anyone needing legal assistance!

Kate Beurmann-O’Neill did a fantastic job representing me in what proved to be a messy, trying, and complicated divorce. The thing I appreciated most, aside from her sound counsel and legal expertise, was her genuine concern for my children and her commitment to doing what was right instead of what was convenient or expedient—a quality which truly makes her stand out against her peers. Thanks for everything Kate! And a big shout out to her paralegal, Tina, for all her behind-the-scenes work! Thanks for getting me through this, ladies.

I contacted Livesay & Myers after searching the web for military divorce attorneys in Virginia. My divorce was complicated and I needed someone to start resolving the little obstacles and concentrate on the larger issues. I met with Jonathan McHugh for a consultation. He was patient, extremely professional and thorough and made me feel at ease that all my issues would be resolved in a timely manner. Jonathan’s knowledge of the military and estate issues was extensive. After 24 years of abuse, Jonathan, along with his paralegal helped me see the light at the end of the tunnel. Both of them were quick to respond to any inquiries I had. I felt very comfortable being represented by Livesay & Myers, as I now know personally that Attorney Jonathan McHugh and his paralegal, Tatyana, fought and succeeded in every aspect of my divorce. Even after the divorce was final, Jonathan and Tatyana continued to be attentive to all the financial details that needed to be followed up to conclusion. I feel very comfortable in recommending their services to anyone who needs to accomplish a positive end result from a difficult situation.

Divorce is not something you can really prepare for. There are lot of considerations and though you think you’ve thought of them all, rest assured you haven’t. Jonathan McHugh and his paralegal were both supportive and made me realize some realities. I wanted to just get it done, but Mr. McHugh made me realize that it wasn’t just me that I was preparing this new phase of my life. Since the children were going to reside with me he researched the child support and figured the numbers that were fair based on our incomes. He also showed the options available to me based on what our circumstances in regard to the divorce, but also respected my decision in the matter. One can hope that you get a team like I did to help you through this. Just because you pay top dollar for an attorney that everyone recommends doesn’t mean you will receive what feels like personal care on a one on one basis. Sometimes the ‘top dollar’ legal team is the one that gives you that ‘top dollar’ attention.
