Working with Matt Long was a wonderful experience and I highly recommend him for his work ethic, professionalism, and responsiveness.

Very disappointed with the service here. Specifically with Nupur Bal. I found her via Richmond time magazine as one of the best marital attorney so I thought she’ll be the best person to hired for my prenuptial with my fiancé. During our meeting, I specifically asked for her to note to have my dog in the contract. When the agreement is drafted, he was not mentioned on there, I feel like I got a run of the liter contract literally. Another negative experience was when I emailed her regarding some questions, waited 2 weeks no response from her, I also reach out to her assistant dotty at the time no response either. Turned out Dottie had retired - but this is no excuse for Nupur to not respond to my email. Of course this got resolved and I was told she got a new assistant now, once again I needed modification to my prenuptial and emailed her to do so, it’s been a month plus and I hadn’t gotten a respond. These experiences can’t help but to make me feel very unimportant after putting down $2500 as retainer and with already $1800 taken out of it for this contract. Mind you I get charged for any corespondent, which I don’t mind if she would do her job. Anyway, I received an email 2 days ago from Nupur to follow up on my prenuptial and was charged $41 yesterday for her email, I hadn’t responded yet but I will email and terminate my working relationship with her. But really like seriously? Your only job is to help me, while you can’t respond to my other email which I paid for is ridiculous, how she won any awards really is questionable to me on my experience of how she handle clients. We ended up using another attorney for the agreement. It said I only have $700 left from the account. I took my already $1800 paid as a lost cause and work with someone else and not have to baby sit her to follow up. I would not recommend Nupur Bal to anyone and highly recommend you to find someone else.

Sharon helped my husband and I with our estate planning and making our wills. She explained everything step by step and made it an extremely easy process for us. Would highly recommend.

Would give zero stars if it was an option. Neither attorney is worth anyone's time.

Sharon is an amazing attorney! She is very personable and fun to chat with, which makes the whole process much easier. She is also extremely knowledgeable and very experienced in estate planning, wills and trusts. Sharon has checklists for everything, making sure you have all of your bases covered for all circumstances. After your consultation, she puts together a comprehensive package, and on your next meeting, you leave with everything you need -- broken into labeled binders, separate folders, etc. You can then store your files or give them to the proper people in your life, getting all of your affairs in order. And, all of your documents are also on a thumb drive as well. I'll be honest -- I went into this whole situation dreading it (acknowledging your mortality, a mountain of paperwork). But Sharon made this, dare I say, fun? An incredible weight has been lifted off of our shoulders with this responsibility finally checked off the to-do list. Throughout the process, she made it as easy as possible, answered every question (and when we threw her a curve ball, she researched the answer), and was great to work with. And, we left her office knowing we were fully-prepared. We cannot recommend her highly enough. The day we left her office with our materials, I emailed friends and co-workers with her contact info. Those who have also used her services rave about her as well.

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.

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!

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.

We have a very positive and rewarding experience with Alicia Finley, one of the attorneys at Barnes & Diehl. Our case was very complex and complicated because as grandparents we were seeking visiting privileges and eventually custody of our granddaughter. We had moved here from Greensboro, NC because the father had retained custody of the child after being absent from the child's life almost from birth. We were underrepresented by our attorney in Greensboro. We met first with the owner of the firm and he recommended Ms. Finley. She stepped in and took the time to understand and appreciate our granddaughter's situation. She took the time to get to know us and the role we had played in her life. The legal process took from 2018 to 2021 when we secured full physical and legal custody of our granddaughter. Ms. Finley leveraged her expertise and supported our mission. Most importantly, she is skilled in the legal processes and her court presence and knowledge played a significant role in this positive outcome. Her help in navigating the legal situation proved to be a key factor in getting what was the best for our grandchild. We both highly recommend her for any family domestic and custody needs that require legal attention.

I would highly recommend Alicia Finley and her staff. Alicia is professional and caring and never stops fighting for her client no matter what. She explained things clearly to me and always kept me up to date on the progress of my case. I was impressed with her skills in open court and being on top of things. In difficult circumstances, particularly in divorce, it helps to have confidence in your attorney and Alicia instills great confidence.

I have had the pleasure of working with Anne Roddy since 1/2020 (and we are still pushing forward with my case). She is absolutely amazing in the courtroom, professional and attached to the goals you may have. Anne has called me after hours on several occasions just to review my case and she travelled SIX HOURS to represent me. She comes to court early and completely prepared, obviously I can’t praise her enough! I highly suggest a consultation with Anne if you are looking for a true advocate for yourself and family.

Mrs. Wind was very professional and responsive with my divorce. She and her assistant would get back to me with any questions or concerns I had in a timely manner. I would highly recommend Barnes and Diehl to anyone for family law.

Harris Leiner did a wonderful job making this unpleasant experience go as easy as it could go. He and his staff were very attentive to my concerns and asks. I would recommend him to anyone that has to go through a divorce.

    We have a very positive and rewarding experience with Alicia Finley, one of the attorneys at Barnes & Diehl. Our case was very complex and complicated because as grandparents we were seeking visiting privileges and eventually custody of our granddaughter. We had moved here from Greensboro, NC because the father had retained custody of the child after being absent from the child's life almost from birth. We were underrepresented by our attorney in Greensboro. We met first with the owner of the firm and he recommended Ms. Finley. She stepped in and took the time to understand and appreciate our granddaughter's situation. She took the time to get to know us and the role we had played in her life. The legal process took from 2018 to 2021 when we secured full physical and legal custody of our granddaughter. Ms. Finley leveraged her expertise and supported our mission. Most importantly, she is skilled in the legal processes and her court presence and knowledge played a significant role in this positive outcome. Her help in navigating the legal situation proved to be a key factor in getting what was the best for our grandchild. We both highly recommend her for any family domestic and custody needs that require legal attention.

I am very thankful to have had the assistance of the practice during a difficult time such as divorce. Elizabeth Dabney is such a wonderful wealth of knowledge and resource when concerning such a sensitive matter. She was also very easily accessible to any questions or concerns that arised. Even though I was the defendant of the case, she sought to give all parties the best care and consultation, which facilitates the ease of the process. I would highly recommend this practice to anyone seeking divorce assistance.

Larry Catlett was unprepared for our court dates. He ended up costing me thousands of dollars. I wonder if he suffers from dementia -- which may be the case, given his age and frame of mind. I would not hire him again.

Mr.Catlett and his team Ms.Shanon are blessings for me and I would definitely recommend them to every person whose is in need of Top Lawers,Counselor

Larry is a great hard nose attorney! He knows the law very well and his way around the court room. He demands the respect of the other side and knows how to get his point across. Highly recommend!

This man is what every lawyer SHOULD be. He fights for you, he doesn't roll over in court and he is honest with you. Edit after 3 months: Avoid. The disorganization and unethical practices are not worth the headache.

I located the services of Ms.Stewart for my partner back in 2018. Fast forward to 2021 and we are both still very happy to have her on retainer for our legal needs. She is professional and gets results by advocating for her clients with a passion that seemingly comes from her very down to earth personality; she is in touch with the pulse of human experience and not a "nose stuck in" legalese type of attorney at all. Her team is expanding to accommodate her growing workload, which is another great indicator of the results she is able to attain for her clients. We would recommend her services time after time!

Attorney Stewart, in my opinion, is very unique. She is extremely professional and provides a compassionate demeanor. This was a much needed quality as I was going through a major life-changing event. Most recently, I contacted Attorney Stewart for assistance with a time-sensitive matter. She readily provided me with her professional assistance and provided me with the needed solution. Again, I was going through another major life change and her assistance allowed me to proceed, stress-free. Thank you Attorney Stewart!

I was very impressed with Attorney Stewart. Needing professional legal advice and not knowing where to go, I searched her online, read the reviews and decided to call. I'm glad I did because our first conversation was very thorough and helpful! Her knowledge and professionalism made a lasting impact with me. I am definitely looking forward to working with her.

My consultation with attorney Stewart was a wonderful experience. She is professional and knowledgeable. All of my questions were answered. She was able to break down legal jargon into layman terms for me. She showed competency and prudence; I would definitely recommend her as an attorney.

Attorney Stewart was extremely professional during my case, she kept me informed of information and updates throughout the process and always addressed any concerns I had in a timely fashion. I was never in the dark and for that I would recommend her to anyone that is in need of a great attorney. I hope I never need her again ???? but if I do, she will be my first choice! Thanks for all you did for me and my daughter!

A friend of mine referred me to Mr Maciej. I was seeking a divorce. He was very professional, fast and informative. He is an amazing lawyer. I recommend anyone that seeks his services use him. He will get it done. If I need anything else I will be contacting him.Thank you so much for taken such good care of me.

I recently called for a consultation about a custody case involving my 13 yr old daughter and Mr. Zebrak was very quick to call me back. The conversation was very informative and he definitely listened on almost what seemed a personal level. In doing so he gave me the confidence to handle my business and actually won my case. I thank him so much and I highly recommend Mr. Zebrak as I will not hesitate to call him in the future if needed. Thank you again.

All these reviews are either lies or the cases were too simple to fail. Contact me for court transcripts of his poor and negligent representation. The dude doesn't even clean up for court and tries to extend and extend your case because he doesn't care. My worst mistake was to trust him with my case. I ended up representing myself and he said he was withdrawing. I have all the emails if you care to find out more. Check Jen's review too

A very knowledgeable and competent lawyer. He handled my custody case with compassion and thoroughness. Very responsive and handles everything with a human touch, which is very difficult to find in a lawyer. Definitely recommended.

I'm not sure if the good reviews coming from friends and family members or what ...I was baffled by good reviews ..case was annulment for my daughter the dude doesn't talk in court at all he left us defenseless and definitely lost the case he was not prepared.. has terrible office, I don't recommend him at all even in simple cases

Attorney Erin Ranney is an Outstanding, 1st Class attorney and she is definitely one of a kind!! She went over and beyond the line of duty to assure that her client was represented at the most highest professional level. Spent quality time with her client to make sure she reviewed all factors in the case. And lastly, there was victory!! I highly recommend Attorney Erin Ranney for your legal needs. You will not be disappointed with her endless efforts to represent your case. Mrs. Tyler

I had a consultation with them on Tuesday. They told me they would send over via email the retaining fees. I called Friday and still haven’t received anything. I have court next Wednesday and I’m going to have to continue my case because I have to find a new lawyer

I've been dealing with this law firm for a year to get my divorce done and the process was so easy. Mine was held up a few but not due to them they did everything they could to make the process as smooth as possible. They always respond to my calls or messages when I left them and they were affordable which is very important. If I need anymore law service I will definitely reach out to them first

Erin Ranney kept me from losing my CDL today and was affordable at that!!!????????I'm headed to work happy. Thanks again!!!????

I spoke with Ms. Barclay several times about my situation before retaining her. That says a lot about a law firm and there attorney's. Ms. Barclay did not hesitate to answer any questions. I have also worked with Ms. Rowedder, she is very pleasant and wonderful to work with as well. Katy the receptionist goes above and beyond as well. Prices are very reasonable and I recommend Ranney Law Firm for anyone in need of a good juvenile custody attorney.
