Simon Marle is a great attorney. He is honest and will tell you exactly where you stand. He is very knowledgeable on family law, DWI, and criminal matters. I have referred many friends to him and they were all very happy with the service and outcome. His prices are the most reasonable that I have had in Virginia.

This review is long overdue! He is an amazing lawyer!!! Honest!! If you want a lawyer that will not take advantage of you he is the guy. I had a horrible divorce and custody battle over two states. He went to court more times for me then any other lawyer I had. He was the only lawyer that won every argument on my behalf. He was the only lawyer that didn’t blow through the retainer. I actually got a check in the mail. I plan on hire him again when I return to court in two years. I’m an honest reviewer as small business owner these are extremely important. He is rare find! Good luck on the other side ????

Today was my first time speaking to Simon on the phone after an emailed I had sent him last night. He was very honest with my husband and I. Also, very knowledgeable and not greedy with money like other lawyers I had contacted prior to him. Looking forward to working with him on our case.

Best attorney around! Office staff very nice and communicative they keep you feeling good about your case no matter what. I would highly recommend 5 star Simon J. Marle

Thank you so much for my divorced case. I high recommend Mr Simon Lawer office. Price,his FASTER job, law Advisors, receptions lady’s ware so awesome. Again, Thank you so much.

I retained Ms. Oramsmith for my divorce and I am very happy I did. She is very knowledgeable and a sharp strategist! I respected her direct demeanor and quick responsiveness during such a stressful time in my life. I highly recommended!

My family had the pleasure of hiring Jennifer not once but three times. She helped us with my brother and both of my kids. She is the most compassionate attorney I know. She always returns calls and e mails and at no time did she make us feel like we were bothering her. She looks out for her clients and provides details of every aspect. She is a true professional and we hope she never retires!!

Jennifer Oram-Smith is one of the most delightful and personable people I have ever had the privilege of working with. Even though, what put me in the position of having to hire a lawyer in the first place was not a good thing.... Jennifer's positive attitude and fearless fighting for my case helped make my experience that much better. When you search for a lawyer, you often look for credentials - experience - size of the firm etc.... but what often isn't described is how diligent they are with their clients and their cases. Jennifer was so tireless in her efforts to ensure I got what I was looking for, that each time I sent her an email she was quick to respond that very same day. Communication was key for me as I live in California and needed representation in Virginia. My case was a complex one, with ALOT of history and paperwork to go through, and given the distance and how often I was able to actually meet with Jennifer in person - I can say I am very impressed with the way she conducts business. As far as price goes, it should be no surprise to anyone that hiring a lawyer can be expensive (depending on your case) and you get what you pay for. I made that mistake the first time I hired a lawyer a few years ago and all I walked away with was debt and little to show for it. Jennifer is EXTREMELY fair in her pricing... in fact... I think she may be underpriced as I believe that her level of commitment is valued at so much more. And because of Jennifer's meticulous work and what felt like boundless knowledge of the judicial system, I was able to walk away from court with so much more than I had started with. I would recommend Jennifer to anyone seeking legal help or even just legal advice. Thank you for your help Jennifer!

Very disappointed in the communication skills by her paralegal. Sure hope she is a great lawyer and people have the patience to get past the front door. If her paralegal has difficulty with email communication than I am afraid of how my papers will look.

Brandon and his team were able to navigate me through an incredibly difficult time. They kept me focused on what was important and continuously looked out for my best interest. I can not possibly thank them enough.

Aboslutly the BEST all around attorneys I've dealt with in Va.Beach! Granted, I've never had to hire an attorney very much in life, but my family has very recently used them for two different cases, and its been an absolutely wonderful, caring, and productive firm. From the receptionist at the front to the Attorneys, you won't find any nicer people. I would literally give them ten ???? stars if it was possible to do such a thing!

These ladies are excellent. There very professional, and truly understand the Law. I will definitely recommend these Law Group to everyone I know... thanks...

I met Kellam Parks at a legal marketing conference where I had the opportunity to listen to one of his presentations. I was immediately impressed not only with his use of technology which increases the level of service he can offer his clients but, more importantly, with the passion he brings to the practice of law. There are many experienced attorneys out there. What sets Kellam and his firm apart from the rest is the commitment to go that extra mile to provide the ultimate in service to each and every client not because their clients expect it, but because it is who they are.

I received excellent advice during my consult with Kellam Parks at this firm. He went above and beyond to educate me about my options, and recommended a logical path forward. I was very impressed with his honesty and kindness, and knowledge of the law.

I cannot say enough good about Ms Kistler and her staff. They were professional courteous and efficient. They were also very kind during this extremely difficult time. I would not hesitate to hire her again should I ever need her professional assistance and I highly recommend her. Thank you

The office went above and beyond, making this a painless and seamless process. Very efficient and excellent communication. I would HIGHLY recommend.

Page was nothing short of helpful and speedy with my divorce. She made the process simple and answered all questions I had every step of the way. An absolute painless experience considering the circumstance!

From my personal experience, this is one of the best and most professional attorney teams that you will find. Ms. Wills and Ms. Kistler care about aiding you to find a resolution. I highly recommended any Soldier, Sailor, Marine, or Airmen to utilize their services.

Before Page, I had been with 2 previous lawyers, and filed 2 times before over a 6 year period. I filed with her in March and just got my divorce finalized this week!!! Her and Ms Lakeman knocked this out of the park and in such a timely and professional manner. Thank you so much for helping me get away from a terrible non-existent marriage that has been long over.

Thomas Harding is a professional in every sense of the word. He has always had my best interest in mind, and his advice was paramount to every positive outcome that came during my divorce and tribulations surrounding custody of my children. I am honored to have had the opportunity to retain him as my lawyer all these years and without hesitation I recommend him to my friends and family going through issues in the family court system.

I have known Darrell Harding and his family for over 30 years and began using Darrell as my personal attorney and the attorney for my business 25 years ago. Don't waste your time searching for a more knowledgeable, thorough, and conscientious attorney than Mr. Harding. It has been extremely gratifying over the years to see two of Mr. Harding's son's join his practice. Jeff & Thomas Harding are two outstanding men raised by wonderful parents who taught them the values of hard work, honesty and integrity. Recently my wife & I finally got around to having our Wills drawn up by Mr. Thomas Harding in the Chesapeake Office. Thomas emailed us a simple guide to provide the essential information for Wills and we set up an appointment to go over the preliminaries. I told my wife it should be a quick in & out appointment. Neither of us had a clue of all the ramifications & complexities to saying "Everything I have is hers, & everything she has is hers." Thomas was so incredibly knowledgeable & patient with us in helping us to appreciate what we were doing and walk away completely comfortable with our decisions. Harding, Harding, & Harding Attorneys at Law "Seek first to understand, then to be understood."

Called for a consult regarding a show cause I was found guilty by default and without learning the full scope said attorney felt it necessary to leave professionalism at the door until retainer was achieved being he felt the need to talk “stern” to me. I was then lead to believe I needed to turn myself in to face jail time, the last thing an attorney should do is cause a client to go into a panic. If I feel it necessary to pursue my matter this law firm will NOT be retained. I know enough about VA and how the wheels move slow but the cash grab is fast down there. After I spoke with the clerk she was so gracious to quash the ill fate the attorney had dealt me. Message to all! Find out as much as you can for yourself before retaining these “lawyers”. I’ve yet to meet a family law attorney that understands the trauma of even needing them to begin with. Well done !

Worst lawyer ever!!!!! I represented myself better than he could!!! This establishment basically stole $5,000 from me for one court date that he lost miserably for me.

I have been a client of Harding law since 2010 on issues related to divorce, custody and visitation. At Harding Law, they have been correct in every subject we have discussed and the court sessions have basically played out exactly as they said they would. At this point in our relationship, when Darrell tells me something, I take it as a absolute fact. I previously hired two attorneys for the same subjects, they cost well over $20,000 and they were routinely wrong. If you need legal help, you cannot find a better attorney than at Harding Law. I refuse to go anywhere else.
