Brian was extremely professional and diligent in everything he did for me. He was very thorough to make sure I knew my options. He took a lot of stress away from what was a difficult change in my life. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone looking for someone with expertise and compassion. Thankful for all he did for me.

I retained the Moore Law Firm to resolve a domestic case. It took a while due to scheduling for the court hearings, but I am very pleased with the final result.

Brian Moore was the by far the best lawyer I’ve ever had! Unlike my last lawyer years ago, Brian was on my side and fought for me! He helped me win full custody of my son, that’s now doing a lot better in school, home, and overal behavior! Anytime i had questions or concerns, Brian was professional and got back with me quick. He has a kind heart and shows that he cares about his clients. If you or someone needs a lawyer, I would recommend him to do the job! You won’t be disappointed! Hands down to the best lawyer in Lynchburg!

Brian is extremely intelligent and knowledgeable in his field. He also has compassion and a great "bedside manner".

Having an attorney that was honest and possessed a strong moral compass was something I was looking for when hiring a family law attorney. When I had my initial consultation with Brian Moore, I knew immediately that he was a good fit for my case and possessed the qualities I was looking for to be a strong advocate for myself and my son. He was an active listener, compassionate and understanding. In my humble opinion, Brian Moore is not only an amazing attorney, but also a man of high integrity. He zealously advocated for me as a client, and was very supportive during the process of my case. He was very responsive and prompt and made me feel like he genuinely cared about me as a client and individual. I would highly recommend Brian Moore and his firm to anyone that is in need of a divorce or family law attorney.

    This is the second time I have retained Mr. Dance as a family law attorney. First in my own divorce case and the second for my daughter's custody and support case. For my own case, I retained Thomas after working with two prior attorneys for 2.5 years and not being able to come to a resolution. Within a couple of months, Thomas lent clarity and focus to my case and resolved it in record time. So when my daughter was in need of counsel concerning support and custody, it wasn't even a thought, Thomas was who we called. Thomas saw the case immediately for what it was, removed the emotion and in no time was able to get the case resolved in a best-case-scenario fashion for my daughter and grand-daughter. If you are in need of a family attorney and can get in with Mr. Dance, do yourself a favor and retain his services.

    Paid for a consultation. Mr. Dance was rude and condescending. After leaving his office I felt that he was on the opposing parties side. A year later I just won my case, easily, with a caring and compassionate lawyer that was willing to listen to me and my concerns. So glad I ran out of his office and never looked back.

    I love this place because they have alot of things to choose from instead of getting the same thing over and over just get something different.????????????????❤

    Best attorney in the area. Wouldn't trust anyone else to represent you in your case!!

    I wish Google offered the option to add more stars, as this firm definitely deserves them. I've heard nothing but good things about Mr. Dance. Thomas Dance and his staff are very experienced, knowledgeable and very kindhearted. If you're looking for a family law attorney who stays up to date with the law and truly cares about the outcome then Mr. Dance is the attorney for you!

    I highly recommend SBStewart Law. She is very knowledgeable and shows great compassion, and that mean a lot to me!

    Jennifer Simmons is a terrible attorney. She represented me in a child custody case. She was rude and made me feel humiliated. She would threaten me, and pressure me to settle. I paid her over $12000. One week before trial, she had used up all my trust account money ($6000) and she asked me for an additional $6000. She wanted me to pay this now or she would not work on my case (this is against ethics rules). I paid her $1000, then a couple of days later another $5000, but she had stopped working on the case, missed deadlines and then because of this she forced me to settle as she was unprepared for trial. Again, do not use her, especially if you are a man. She took all $12000 for settling a simple child custody case,I believe she padded her invoices. If you too have been ripped off by this attorney, I recommend you file a complaint with the VA State Bar.

    Jennifer came highly recommended to help with my divorce. I met for a consultation and was pleased with her plan to proceed. The cost were very reasonable and the end result was better than I had expected. Jennifer and her staff were very professional and I would use them again for any legal matters.

    Jennifer and her staff were a delight to work with. I always got a call back often from jennifer herself. I’ve used her over the years for various issues regarding custody, visitation, divorce and even for an issue regarding my business. I felt fairly treated, greatly represented and so blessed that I chose her as my attorney. Definitely use again!

    Jennifer was my divorce attorney. She was everything I needed in an attorney. She treated me professionally while also being honest and making me hear what I might not want to hear. She fought for me like I was her only client. She and her assistant, David, both worked to answer my questions. She never once backed down from helping get what I was entitled to get.

    Great law firm.. they handled my divorce and custody several years ago and now they are handling my other cases.. They are very professional and friendly. They know all aspects of the law and offer great advice.

    Livesay and Myers did a fantastic job with my uncontested divorce. I worked with Nicole O’Neal and Matthew Hall. They answered all my questions quickly and to my complete satisfaction. Almost everything was handled over the phone and through email which I appreciated with my busy schedule. I was really impressed with how quickly and smoothly everything progressed. From my first phone call to the firm to receiving my signed divorce decree was less than 6 weeks and 16 days of that was waiting on the order to be signed. I would highly recommend them with confidence. Thank for again for the great work.

    I went to Livesay & Myers seeking help with custody, separation, and divorce. During my consultation I met with Mrs. Nicole O'Neal and was very impressed with her knowledge and drive to help me get my children back. Mrs. Nicole and Mr. Matthew her paralegal made me feel as if they devoted themselves to staying on top of my situation even going as far as to check on my situation after hours and on the weekends. They both displayed themselves with the highest level of professionalism of any lawyer/ paralegal I have encountered. I would highly recommend this extremely capable team to anyone seeking help in custody, separation, and divorce matters.

    LGBTQ friendly. Handled the step parent adoption of my daughter. I had a lot of stress about it going through the process but they alleviated all of my worries. The adoption was done in less than a month.

    Hiring Sarah Patras has been the best decision we've made in nearly 13 years of custody/child support litigation. Ms. Patras and her paralegal, Ashley Constant, are highly knowledgable and extremely professional while still being warm and empathetic to very emotional situations. They are very objective and honest when situations call for it and give a realistic perspective on what you can expect during your case. They respond promptly to any and all communications and you can trust when they say they will take care of something it will be done quickly and on time (an issue we've found with other attorneys). Ms. Patras is passionate in court and Ms. Constant ensures you never miss a deadline for discovery or documentation. I could not more highly recommend this team to anyone seeking family law representation.

    The best law firm serving northern Virginia I contacted Livesay & Myers on a very short notice pertaining my custody hearing they assigned Ms Cambridge Lestienne to my case she was very efficient and prompt and they were able to get me the outcome I was looking for! Job well done and a big thank you

    Chris was there to listen to my needs from day one. Although I knew he had other clients, he always got back to me in a timely manner. He was responsive, thorough, and was willing to talk things through (a lot). He asked me great questions that made me think my decisions through, although he never tried to persuade me one way or another. I wasn’t sure about the pre-agreed pricing approach at first, but after seeing how tiny things can add up, I’m so glad I did it this way. In the end, my result was exactly what I wanted and needed, and it was thanks to Chris and his great work.

    Chris is an excellent, skilled, lawyer that's truly down to earth and easy to work with. Only a fool goes to court without a lawyer, and an idiot goes to court without Chris Macturk.

    They treated so bad that I was crying as soon as the meeting ended. I was going through the worst moment of my life and was treated with prejudice and felt very humiliated. Attorney Chris is the worst professional I’ve ever met.

    WORST service I’ve ever had. They don’t care at all about the client. Do NOT go there.

    If there’s one great thing about Chris—and trust me, there is more than one— it would be his follow through. When it came to my concerns and needs, Chris was genuinely focused on providing the best possible outcome for me. I've worked with people who usually take a day or two to respond— but Chris never let anything fall through the cracks, he was always ready and willing to help, at any time of the day. His pre-agreed pricing approach was great too, and worked out better than I could have imagined. These kinds of situations aren't always easy, but I can’t believe how much of a difference working with someone like Chris made.

    Granted Im happy that my divorce is finalized. But I was extremely disappointed in the service provided to me by Mary Napier. She never communicated or updated me without prompting from me and then I was surely charged for the email conversations just asking for an update. She made multiple mistakes on my divorce decree which in turn lengthened my process to finally get my divorce & my name changed. I had better luck dealing with her paralegal.

    Excellent work done by great people who really care about their clients. I can't recommend highly enough.

    Mary Napier . Not a lawyer I would suggest anyone hire. Takes your money gets to the end of your case then tells you she has a conflict. Made many mistakes .Suggestions find another lawyer.

    Mary Napier is awesome! Going through custody and child support issues is never fun...but Mary made everything so easy. She answered all my questions, even breaking things down for me so I could actually understand..instead of just speaking legal talk. My boyfriend went from a ridiculous visitation schedule to actually being able to be the father he’s always wanted to be. Our little family is extremely thankful for Mary!

    Marc Boyko was highly recommended to me and i am very pleased in the handling of my case. I was kept informed of everything along the way. Hes very polite and easy to talk to He explained every step to me as it was happening and I was always aware of what to expect next. No surprises. Praying I never need a lawyer again but if I do...i would not hesitate to call him again..

      Would 100% recommend this office to anyone in need of legal help. Shannon Otto has been very kind and her paralegal, Jamisen, has gone above and beyond helping me with all my questions. This team will get the job done!

      Colleen and the team at Locke & Quinn was very helpful guiding us through our adoption with minimal issues - would recommend based on their knowledge and experience.

      We worked with attorney Colleen Quinn who is a AAAA adoption attorney. She is very knowledgeable about adoption as well as a very personable attorney. She helped guide us through a smooth adoption process. Her paralegal Charli is pretty amazing as well. We appreciate everything that you did for us. I also think your pricing is very affordable!!!!

      When my ex-husband and I decided to get a divorce, we attempted to handle our separation without an attorney. Unfortunately, us not being educated with the law, I found myself in a position that was not to my benefit. Thankfully, I found Shannon Otto with Locke & Quinn who was able to right my wrong and be by my side during the upcoming events leading to my divorce. My divorce ended as amicably as it could have been between two people dissolving a marriage and I walked away with not only financials and other decisions to my benefit, but also with my head held high. Without Ms. Otto's knowledge of the law, realistic expectations, and confidence, I cannot say for sure that things would have ended the way that they had.

      Colleen and her legal team are top notch, friendly, efficient and would 100% reccomend and/or use again
