The following is a sampling of client reviews for our family law attorneys in Manassas:
Please do not hesitate to use Laila Raheen and her team at Livesay & Myers, P.C. in Manassas. I needed to act quickly to financially separate and to move toward divorce; they understood that and moved at the pace that I needed. The process was with complete ease despite the shear stress that was going on between my former spouse and I. Education and options were provided with each step to help me make decisions that were wise and respectful of the children and this fostered sound collaboration with my former spouse. They instilled confidence at every turn in my process of separation, property rights, and final divorce decree. I felt like my hand was held for an entire year. Communication was easy and always responsive. Setting up a trust to fund the divorce was easy and was on par with what I could afford. Having a prior divorce process experience—there is absolutely no comparison. Do not hesitate to use this firm. You are wasting your time calling around to others.
I need a sixth star here. I was honestly thinking long before writing this review how, out of all the professionals I have worked with in my fifty-seven years… all the doctors, lawyers, accountants… my experience with Amanda Kimble was probably the most positive I have ever had. I found her when my spouse, who is himself an attorney, went out and hired not one but two sets of lawyers. I realized I needed representation. Amanda Kimble was MY advocate. All through the process she was on MY side. That feeling is amazing. All the stuff you have to go through in divorcing she explained clearly and patiently (and never condescendingly). My spouse and I are LGBTQ which brought up a whole set of legal issues. She was 100% confident and knowledgeable, and never wavered. She let me have my time in the process while gently keeping things moving along. Her ‘desk side’ manner whenever we met set the perfect tone of lightness and heaviness. It made what could have been a much worse process actually not so bad. From the start to the finish, I felt taken care of, and I am so grateful Amanda represented me. In the end, my spouse, apparently socked with huge bills from his own attorney, asked us to file the papers and finish up. The way Amanda did it (actually showing up in court) was so professional and competent that I think I may have gone up a little in my ex’s estimation for having hired a better attorney than his! Six stars for sure.
I recently had to have a Child Support matter addressed that was contentious with the opposing side. I was fortunate to have had Ms. Laila Raheen and Ms. Gigi Stanley on my side. Even though my job is out of the country, they were both so effective at communicating with me that the distance never seemed to be an issue. Gigi and Laila put a human and compassionate side to a very emotionally charged situation and they made me believe that I was their only case. I never felt like a number. I highly recommend them to anyone that may not be local but needing legal support in the NOVA area. My situation ultimately required a court appearance, and Ms. Raheen’s demeanor and presence in front of the judge and opposing counsel was nothing short of spectacular. She was calm, not a show off, but a pure professional. An accurate description would be ‘kitten with claws,’ but done in such a way that at no point did it have a negative effect on the judge, but visibly flustered the opposing side which resulted in a positive outcome. If you hire Ms. Raheen and Gigi, you can do it with confidence.
Amanda Kimble and Michelle Evans were great! I had to place my divorce case on file and without hesitation and great appreciation Amanda picked up the case. She did an excellent job of choosing the best method to proceed and got the final decree quickly. I had roots with this firm and went back because of their professional and personal approach to challenging life changes and I was never disappointed. The divorce process was perfected and I can’t thank them enough. Not one call or email went unanswered–they explained everything! Excellent and lawyer and excellent legal assistant with great customer service!
