Mr. Garver handled my divorce and I am back for a traffic violation. He is easy to work with and covers all the bases needed to get your case though the system. I will keep him in mind if I need any help in the future. I would also recommend him to family and friends.

Mr. Garver has been a great advocate and attorney who worked diligently to make sure that all the facts and information were available in court. He was organized and strong while representing me and steadfast during the negotiations. I have recommended Steve to a number of friends and colleagues. I am very happy with the way Mr. Garver handled my case

Steve handled my high-pressure, high-profile divorce from start to finish from 2013 to 2014, as well as lingering issues in 2015, with complete professionalism, control, and finesse. Steve always kept me informed, never let me feel intimidated, let me read everything, incorporated my edits, and handled numerous explosive legal situations that were repeatedly lobbed at me. Let me emphasize – this was not an easy divorce, nor was it at an ideal time in my life, as I had only recently returned to the workforce after staying at home with my children for many years. But Steve has seen it all, and has excellent instincts. He’s not intimidated by anyone on the other side, but does not have to resort to bombast in order to accomplish what you need. His demeanor is quiet, yet very thoughtful, and I found that he is extremely well-regarded by all judges we went before as well as among his fellow attorneys and mediators, which is critically important.
Nothing about getting a divorce is easy – especially when there are kids involved and an unpredictable spouse who is taking a “scorched earth” approach toward your divorce. But when your life is falling apart, you HAVE to have someone on your side who can handle the legal chaos that can result. Steve did that for me and successfully negotiated what I needed for the future. I interviewed two other attorneys before hiring Steve – both in Fairfax City near the courthouse who had handled divorces for friends of mind. Both were very nice, but neither could have withstood the withering tactics of my ex and his attorney. Steve is NOT afraid to go to court for you – and so often, you have to go to court – and he is NOT afraid to deal with opposing counsel. Remember – with any attorney, you get what you pay for. I’ve seen this over and over with my divorced friends who hired other attorneys and who did NOT get the settlements or agreements that they needed. This is probably the worst time in your life; don’t make it harder on yourself by hiring someone who can’t handle your situation. I highly recommend Garver Law Offices, and have already recommended Steve to several people I know who unexpectedly found themselves in the same situation. Trust me, Steve knows what he is doing.
