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.

Kudos to Melannie Dino for being the steady hand on the wheel through all of the unexpected twists and turns of my case. She caught critical details and closed loopholes that I would have regretted for years down the road. While I’d never wish it on anyone to go through a divorce process, I would gladly recommend Melannie to help you get across the finish line with your sanity and welfare intact!

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.
