Family Law
Richard Garriott & Patrick Maurer of Garriott Maurer know the law and how to utilize it to the best benefit their clients. They are upfront, don’t pull punches, and were brutally honest with me because as a client I needed to hear the ugly truth. They were emotionally intelligent while being aggressively strategic to uphold my position within the law. If anyone would want an attorney that will go the distance with you, through the ups and downs, even when the cards are stacked against you, Rich & Pat are it! I was involved in a contested divorce; being a service member in Hampton Roads, inference had already put me behind any power curve. My ex-spouse created a plethora of false allegations (a shotgun effect) hoping one would stick, still Rich and Pat stood by me through the toughest days of my life. Richard Garriott and Patrick Maurer are going to be brutally honest with their clients. They will not tell you what you want to hear, they will tell you the way it is while holding the opposing counsel accountable for their clients as well. I feel that Rich and Pat will always tell you the blunt truth and fight for your best interest!
Family Law
Highly experienced, prompt and attentive. They are dedicated, compassionate and detailed family lawyers. Represented my family in laws of marriage, divorce, separation, property settlements, child support, and ultimately child custody. I've gone back to them after the divorce for additional legal matters with wonderful results. 100% recommend them - they represented us in the Juvenile and Domestic Relations District Court as well as Circuit Court. They have extensive experience in the litigation and resolution of child custody, visitations and support issues.
