Colleen Quinn and her team have assisted with the adoption of both of our children. She explained the process completely, assisted with the required forms and helped keep things going as smoothly as possible during the past year's events. While our more recent adoption of our daughter took longer than expected due to the pandemic, Ms Quinn kept us apprised of progress and updated us whenever she was able to. I highly recommend her services.

My wife and I used Locke and Quinn for our second-parent adoption of our now-five-month-old daughter. Everyone we worked with was extremely professional, kind, helpful, and patient as we navigated the process (as well as parenting for the first time). We had a wonderful experience and look forward to using them again when we go through the process with our future children.

During a turbulent year to undertake an adoption Colleen M. Quinn, Esq. and her paralegal Nancy Arthur made the process easy and allowed us to focus our energies on our new son. The challenges and worries around the process were eased by their prompt and clear communications of what was happening in the process. We are so grateful for a excellent team of professionals and hope to use them again the next time!

Colleen Quinn, Esq. is more than just an exceptional attorney - she is an amazing person as well. Energetic, passionate and knowledgeable she went above and beyond and her expertise was evident in the way she handled my case. Having had no more than the weekend to scrutinize and digest the contents of heaps of documents, she defended me effectively and effortlessly with well-reasoned arguments. Evidently, she had invested considerable time and effort assembling all the relevant facts and then preparing a strong defense. She is very reliable; she will not disappoint. Thank you, Colleen!

Where do you go when you need an attorney? Most times you have no idea because there are hundreds of attorneys out there all claiming to be the best. I was able to find Attorney Quinn on the internet. I chose her because of her superior rating and prompt response. Attorney Quinn read my case and then gave me the legal reasons why it would be a difficult case to pursue. Based on her clear , thorough explanations, I decided to bring closure to the matter. It was the best decision I could have ever made. Thank you, Ms. Quinn and Peg, for the professional assistance you provided !!!!!!!!!!!! Brenda Williams Jones

I've worked with Ms. Napier on a previous custody case and she did exactly what I needed her to do. I won my case with flying colors and am going to use her for another upcoming case as well. Her office staff is very professional and I am so glad I found her. She and her firm has won numerous awards for their work. I would highly recommend this firm to anyone needing help with child custody and divorce.

Mary Napier was a wonderful attorney who did not hesitate to keep my best interest in mind. Highly recommended.

“Recommendation”/tip (via family): If your case is being adjudicated in the County of Henrico, by all means, have Napier take it on, as she's very tight with members of this court system. I.e., When you’re dealing with a government institution like Henrico courts, network(ing) supersedes skill/expertise.

Hands down best custody lawyer!

Great team of attorneys! Highly recommend this law firm. We had a pleasure having Mary Napier representing our case ( child custody, divorce). We couldn't ask for a better attorney. She responds to every email the same day, answered all the questions we had, never rushed us, took her time to explain every detail, so professional. Definitely worthy of a 5star review!

An excellent experience! Quality legal service. Good communication that was always both friendly and professional. Reasonable pricing too.

I can't thank or speak highly enough of Ms. Claudia, Mr. Carlos and her staff at Hawk Law. Before coming to Claudia, I had worked with 2 other attorneys who never seemed to quite understand my situation enough to make headway, let alone bring an agreeable conclusion. Ms. Claudia was able to very quickly understand what we were dealing with, she and her team were always responsive and patient with my questions and concerns, and I am so grateful for how my situation has been resolved. I will continue to enthusiastically recommend Claudia and her firm to anyone looking for a professional, capable, kind, yet firm lawyer who truly cares about her clients.

Claudia and her team are excellent, empathetic, and diligent in their work! I’m very appreciative and grateful to have found her.

My ex-wife and I used Hawk Family Law for a fully uncontested divorce with drafting of MSA. I couldn't recommend their services more as their prices are very reasonable and Carlos/Claudia were amazing guiding us through the divorce process.

We are extremely grateful to have found Hawk law firm! From beginning to end, we were treated fairly, and were kept informed of our case every step of the way. Thanks to Hawk law we were able to achieve our goals in court, and receive not only justice but the overall outcome of our trial was truly in the best interest of our children! The pricing was fair, and reasonable for such excellent service. We will definitely be recommending Haw Law to all of our friends and family! An enormous thank you again to Ms. Claudia and Mr. Carlos for all their hard work and dedication to our case! God bless.

Keith Jones and April Anderson worked as my legal team during a long divorce process. Keith presents a balanced demeanor with a gift for explaining the process in layman's terms. April ensures calls are scheduled and updates provided as she has them. I like to point out that whereas friend said it took her lawyer weeks to notify her about her divorce, April called me as soon as she knew. These two are the ones you want for your case!

Robert Miller and the team at Smith Strong were outstanding. They made a complicated/difficult divorce easy and offered great advice. I feel like they did everything possible to ensure a smooth successful divorce in which I was very happy with the outcome. I would highly recommend.

After 39 years of marriage, having to go through a divorce was the last thing I ever thought I would have to do. Unfortunately, I did have to go through it and it would have been much harder for me to deal with if it were not for the efforts of Robert Miller, Owen Togna and the rest of the team at Smith Strong. They made this very difficult and complicated process much easier and offered me outstanding competent legal advice. Throughout my divorce, Robert had to deal with numerous difficult issues but he always did so in a professional manner, keeping my best interest in mind. I am very pleased with the fair and equitable outcome they were able to achieve in my divorce and I would highly recommend to anyone having to go through the painful process of a divorce.

I met with Keith Jones and April Anderson recently to receive assistance with some legal matters. They were both attentive and extremely responsive in a timely manner. Any question I had was clearly answered and I am very satisfied the results provided. I would not hesitate to call Smith Strong in the future. Thanks, Keith and April - I appreciate your kindness and professionalism!

Smith Strong, PLC has been with me and guided me through some difficult situations, both personally and professionally. They are always attentive to my needs, respond in a timely manner to phone calls and questions, they are always courteous and professional; I will always turn to Van Smith for counsel on legal matters. I have not had a negative experience with this firm; the support staff are wonderful people too. I highly recommend you interview them for your next legal move, it is doubtful you will be disappointed.

Ms. Lisa was exceptionally easy to work with. She was super helpful throughout the entire process. During the process, she proved herself so knowledge, professional, and outstanding attorney. I would highly recommend Ms. Lisa!

Lisa is wonderful! Very responsive, professional and a great hand-holder through a tough time. Highly recommend her.

I put in an inquiry for help with my divorce that was taking way too long to be handled and Lisa reached out in a matter of hours. From that time on, she kept me updated on everything. The flat fee price I paid was shocking (in a good way). It was really easy, I almost had to do nothing! The timeline was right what she quoted and I couldn’t be happier. She helped me close a HUGE chapter of my life. Thank you again for everything, Lisa!

Very impressed! She was very knowledgeable and helpful through the entire process. Overall great experience!

I needed legal assistance to have two QDRO's processed after my divorce. I did a random search and found Lisa. Sometimes you just get lucky. She was responsive and professional throughout the process. Highly recommended.

Mr. Miller is an extremely knowledgeable attorney in the area of divorce law. He answered all of my questions with understanding and compassion during this difficult time. He made me feel comfortable and confident that he could represent me in the best manner possible.

I highly recommend this law firm. Very professional. I worked closely with Mike Miller. He is very knowledgeable in many areas of law, he provides great advise and comments. Very responsive and he will do everything he can to support your case.. he is well connected and well respected. I've always had high confidence in him and his assistance Angela Patrick, and I am confident other clients are getting the same professional service as well. No wonder why the firm was awarded the best law firm in northern VA in previous years! Don't look any further, you will be higly satisfied with Mike and the outcomes! With Mike you're in a good hands. Again I highly recommend this firm and personally recommend working with Mike Miller.

I highly recommend Teresa Cole with Cole Miller PLLC for anyone’s divorce process. Teresa was very easy to work with considering the emotional divorce situation I was in. She helped me prepare for my future and get what I needed in my settlement as someone who took time off work to raise children and who was not working at the time. She recommended an excellent divorce mediator that kept my ex and me out of court. Teresa was always responsive with emails and phone calls and was thoroughly knowledgeable about Federal Employee divorce and benefits involved. The firms office location is very convenient. I cannot say enough good things. I am very happy now and Teresa helped me get here. I interviewed two other attorneys and Teresa was the best. She was always mindful of time in our meetings so money wasn’t wasted. As I said before, I highly recommend her. You can’t go wrong with this divorce attorney decision.

Divorce is no fun regardless of how amicable it might be. Teresa was responsive to my questions and most importantly was a good listener and shaped her service to the level of my need. I have no doubt she would have represented me with great strength if I had needed to go that route. I highly recommend her if you are in need of representation in a divorce.

Mike took the time to explain how the custody process works. He spent extra time to read over my email and to help me have realistic expectations in court. This firm is focused on the law and helping clients navigate complicated issues.

Going through a divorce is one of the toughest, life altering experiences anyone can face. With the unique complications I was facing, I needed an attorney who had the experience, temperament, strategic thinking skills, who also genuinely cared about the well-being of their client, to represent me. Steve was referred to me and at every turn, he either met or exceeded my expectations. He made sure that every contact had a purpose and worked to cut legal costs throughout the process. If something was an email matter, then it was resolved over email. If it required a conversation, it was up to me to decide, and when I opted for a conversation, with Steve or the team, it was efficient and provided the clarity I needed at the time. There are no winners in a divorce. But I believe you can achieve fairness, and an amicable split, which leads to a resolution that brings about a sense of closure. What could have been a nightmare of process in the hands of the wrong attorney, was a relatively easy and amicable process that avoided litigation, because of Steven Goldman, Jenna Hayba and paralegal Julia Nelson. I am deeply grateful to them for the peace I am now experiencing post-marriage. I wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend family law attorneys Steven Goldman & Jenna Hayba.

Steven Goldman was so professional and personable I highly recommend him to anyone. He did an amazing job hearing my issues and converting them into solutions we could achieve.

Carl Schoenherr was my attorney for my custody, visitation and divorce. He is a hard worker and very dedicated. He did an excellent job throughout the entire process. He is very knowledgeable, professional and kind. He always explained everything in a way that I understood. He has always been quick to answer my emails and he is very prompt. He did an exceptional job at trial! Myself and my family were highly impressed. He was very attentive and on point the entire time. He was able to adjust and adapt to anything that came his way or anything that changed. His closing argument was exceptional! I am happy with the outcome and I'm so thankful I had Carl Schoenherr for my representation. I highly recommend him to anyone that needs representation. He is excellent!

Mr. Steve Goldman is an exceptional lawyer. I would hands down recommend Mr. Goldman. He handled my case and represented me in a most professional manner. Every step of the way Mr. Goldman explained all issues at hand and provided a recommendation that would best suit not only myself but my child. I always followed his recommendation which always culminated in a successful outcome. His extensive knowledge of law, wealth of experience on child custody matters, and his ability to strategize each scenario of the case always meant Mr. Goldman was several steps ahead of the opposing lawyer. Furthermore, Mr. Goldman was able to settle out of court with all of our demands agreed upon and then some! Not only did this save money but it saved the additional stress and emotional toll court would have brought. This was a testament to his legal prowess. I am extremely satisfied with the outcome. If you want someone on your side representing you Mr. Steve Goldman is who you need.

Steven Goldman is an excellent Attorney who truly serves in the best interest of his clients. He is extremely well mannered and transparent in his performance of providing excellent legal representation. Steven represented me in a lengthy custody case that was very complex to say the least. He was straightforward on what my focus needed to be, the steps I had to take and the considerations that needed to be weighed in order to ensure an optimal outcome of the case. I took his advisement and applied it accordingly which resulted in a favorable end result. I recommend anyone who is looking for a hardworking, poised, experienced, effective and most importantly "play no games" Attorney to consider Steven Goldman.

    Going through a divorce is one of the toughest, life altering experiences anyone can face. With the unique complications I was facing, I needed an attorney who had the experience, temperament, strategic thinking skills, who also genuinely cared about the well-being of their client, to represent me. Steve was referred to me and at every turn, he either met or exceeded my expectations. He made sure that every contact had a purpose and worked to cut legal costs throughout the process. If something was an email matter, then it was resolved over email. If it required a conversation, it was up to me to decide, and when I opted for a conversation, with Steve or the team, it was efficient and provided the clarity I needed at the time. There are no winners in a divorce. But I believe you can achieve fairness, and an amicable split, which leads to a resolution that brings about a sense of closure. What could have been a nightmare of process in the hands of the wrong attorney, was a relatively easy and amicable process that avoided litigation, because of Steven Goldman, Jenna Hayba and paralegal Julia Nelson. I am deeply grateful to them for the peace I am now experiencing post-marriage. I wholeheartedly and enthusiastically recommend family law attorneys Steven Goldman & Jenna Hayba.

    Carl Schoenherr was my attorney for my custody, visitation and divorce. He is a hard worker and very dedicated. He did an excellent job throughout the entire process. He is very knowledgeable, professional and kind. He always explained everything in a way that I understood. He has always been quick to answer my emails and he is very prompt. He did an exceptional job at trial! Myself and my family were highly impressed. He was very attentive and on point the entire time. He was able to adjust and adapt to anything that came his way or anything that changed. His closing argument was exceptional! I am happy with the outcome and I'm so thankful I had Carl Schoenherr for my representation. I highly recommend him to anyone that needs representation. He is excellent!

    Mr. Steve Goldman is an exceptional lawyer. I would hands down recommend Mr. Goldman. He handled my case and represented me in a most professional manner. Every step of the way Mr. Goldman explained all issues at hand and provided a recommendation that would best suit not only myself but my child. I always followed his recommendation which always culminated in a successful outcome. His extensive knowledge of law, wealth of experience on child custody matters, and his ability to strategize each scenario of the case always meant Mr. Goldman was several steps ahead of the opposing lawyer. Furthermore, Mr. Goldman was able to settle out of court with all of our demands agreed upon and then some! Not only did this save money but it saved the additional stress and emotional toll court would have brought. This was a testament to his legal prowess. I am extremely satisfied with the outcome. If you want someone on your side representing you Mr. Steve Goldman is who you need.

    Steven Goldman is an excellent Attorney who truly serves in the best interest of his clients. He is extremely well mannered and transparent in his performance of providing excellent legal representation. Steven represented me in a lengthy custody case that was very complex to say the least. He was straightforward on what my focus needed to be, the steps I had to take and the considerations that needed to be weighed in order to ensure an optimal outcome of the case. I took his advisement and applied it accordingly which resulted in a favorable end result. I recommend anyone who is looking for a hardworking, poised, experienced, effective and most importantly "play no games" Attorney to consider Steven Goldman. If he was able to make a difference in my situation then he can definitely do the same in yours.

I was googling the area and found this place through a referral and they are amazing here. I spoke to Director of Operations, Mike, briefly about my separation and what the process is that is to follow and he answered a lot of my questions. Mike saved all my questions down, which was a lot, and he called me later at night past 7pm to see if I can schedule a time to talk to their attorney, Joe Pietro, and I was thrilled! I had a chance to consult with Joe the day after and again, another great person to talk to! He took his time, very understanding and made me feel secure and confident, and gave me sound advice! Overall, I felt really confident with the team here and I felt empowered with the information they’ve given me. I would highly recommend this team here!

As is often the case with those going through a divorce, this was perhaps the worst time in my life. John and Sakeena helped me so much with their extreme patience and kindness as I asked a ridiculous number of questions. I always had the impression that "they had my back" and that I was part of a team. Let me close by saying that not only were they compassionate, but also extremely competent and professional in handling my many inquiries. I could not give DiPietro Law Group a higher recommendation,

Navigating my divorce was challenging experience to say the least but i was supported and guided every step by my lawyer Camellia and staff. Camellia managed to get both parties to a settlement in less than six month in my complex situation. Her main focus was always the best interest of my children and that I was also taken care of in a fair way. Camellia was always responsive and timely in answering my questions and concern. I would recommend her and her law firm to anyone who want a highly qualified attorney, who will watch out for your interests and those of your children, who can be tough when necessary, who has knowledge and understanding of law.

Top Class! Very responsive, professional and affordable! Would recommend to anyone and if ever I need representation again, I know who I'm calling!

My experience with John P. Lavinus IV was painless. He provided great service, kept me up-to-date every step, and always answered my questions.

After reading reviews I was excited to call and hopefully set an appt for a quick free consultation. I say free because when I typed free Consultation this was the first lawyer that popped up. Just need some guidance and a good lawyer. I guess better luck at the next office.

The entire team at Evolution Divorce is top notch. They answered ALL of my questions and responded very quickly when I needed something. I would recommend them to anyone in the Richmond area going through a divorce.

I contacted Chris to handle my divorce case after doing a simple internet search looking for an attorney. Testimonials for Chris's company seemed to be sincere, so I reached out. Chris contacted me himself. His confidence and experience were immediately noticeable, so I hired him. Chris and his team were diligent, immediate, and kept me informed every step of the way. They answered my questions and did not sugarcoat things. They kept me at ease in their abilities during the entire process. Pre-agreed pricing was certainly convenient, and Chris honors all his time. The biggest unique challenge to my case was the fact that I live in New York, but the divorce was handled in Virginia. Chris and his team made that a non-issue. Chris got me exactly the outcome I was looking for. My other friends around Virginia were surprised, and a little jealous of my results. Not only did he get the results I was looking for, he did it quickly. He's very professional and very decisive, a true master of his trade.

I found Chris through online reviews and found him to be accessible, considerate, and measured in his advice. Chris composed an agreement that met my needs and the outcome was ideal. His agreed-upon pricing was also highly preferable for me. It was a very uncertain time and I felt that knowing the pricing ahead of time was a reprieve. Pricing was quite fair.

I contacted Chris to understand the process of a non-contested divorce. He met with me twice at no charge to gather information and help me understand the process, which he did expertly. He explained technical legal jargon clearly and answered all of my questions patiently. I felt confident and comfortable moving forward with the divorce through Evolution because of how well I was treated and how much I felt valued. I also interacted with several other members of Chris' team throughout this process and everyone was friendly, communicative, punctual with responses and paperwork, and extremely helpful overall. They really helped alleviate a lot of the stress and anxiety that can come with going through something like this. Now, for his Pre-Agreed Pricing: All my life, I've heard horror stories of exorbitant legal fees creating financial crises in people's lives. Knowing I wouldn't be nickel-and-dimed was appealing because I could budget and predict my finances around this process instead of being hit with unexpected expenses and fees. Also, I was astounded just how much time and work was covered under one pre-agreed price. I honest and truly felt that I got much more than my money's worth. Evolution achieved the results I wanted, and even when the courts played their bureaucratic games with us and delayed the process several times (outside of Evolution's control), I unwaveringly felt that Chris and his team were dedicated to making sure that they saw this process through in as timely a manner as possible. They communicated clearly and consistently every time a legal challenge would present itself.
