The following is a sampling of client reviews for the attorneys in our Manassas office:
“★★★★★ Ariel Baniowski and her paralegal, Tatyana Spurgeon were phenomenal. Ariel Baniowski expertly prepared and litigated my case. You could talk to 1,000 attorneys and you’d be lucky to find 3 or 4 that possess the kind of passion, zeal, work ethic, and competence that Ariel has. She works like a machine. She values time and your dollar. She argues with the perfect balance of logic, passion, and confidence. She is incredibly intelligent. If you’re lucky enough to work with her, feel confident that you have one of the best in the business. Most importantly to me, I always had the feeling that Ariel and Tatyana were as invested in my case as I was. I didn’t feel that they were merely representing me. I truly felt that we were all in it together, standing shoulder to shoulder as part of the same fight. They were more than a legal team. They were a support system. Finally, Ariel never told me what I wanted to hear just because I wanted to hear it. She always told me exactly what she thought was right. She’s not in it to be a people pleaser. She’s in it to win your case. I can’t thank Ariel, Tatyana, and Livesay and Myers enough for what they’ve accomplished for me and I highly recommend their services if you are going through a difficult time like I was.” – Andrew
“★★★★★ You cannot do better than [Ariel] Baniowski. Understand that you are going through the most emotional time in your life. Hire her, trust her, and then allow her to do her job. She will not over-promise, will keep you grounded, and will deliver. She has experience with the system and knowledge of the law, but, above all, she has the knowledge of human behavior to give you the edge you probably desperately seek. I regret a lot of things connected to my divorce. Hiring her is the only thing I don’t regret.” – Michael
“★★★★★ My initial visit with [Carolyn] Eaton was for a consultation when my ex-spouse told me he wanted a divorce. She came highly recommended from a friend who recently went through a divorce, and after talking with her during my initial visit, I knew she was the attorney for me, compassionate, attentive and definitely experienced in the law. Once I knew there was no reconciliation with my ex-spouse, I turned to Ms. Eaton who was ready to go and take on my case full steam ahead. I had many questions during the marital separation agreement and no-contest divorce processes and Ms. Eaton was there ready to respond to my inquiries and guide me through every step till the end. Ms. Eaton was a GEM from the beginning to end and I can’t thank her and her paralegal Ms. Richter enough for making the entire process as stress free as possible so I may move forward with my life. Many, many, many thanks!” – Jeanine
