Look no further, hire Brandon! Anyone who's been engulfed in a child custody litigation scenario knows and understands the emotional struggles that come along with it. Not only did I experience this, but my situation went on all the way through the Court of Appeals. Look no further, hire Brandon!
Anyone who's been engulfed in a child custody litigation scenario knows and understands the emotional struggles that come along with it. Not only did I experience this, but my situation went on all the way through the Court of Appeals. I found myself in front of multiple judges in multiple courtrooms facing everything from contempt of court charges to jail time. Sitting next to Brandon during these hearings/trials gave me the ability to gut through them. I would not have handled these hearings very well otherwise. I say this because Brandon knows the law. He knows it backward, forwards and upside down and it's apparent that the judges know and respect this. Brandon will not coddle you. He has a tough exterior, but inside the courtroom, his tough turns to unstoppable. He will use the law, every single letter of it, to right the wrongs. His firm is fantastic. Everyone from the paralegals to the administrative staff. They'll treat you like family and are sensitive to the stress that comes along with feeling like you're unable to protect your child. I HIGHLY recommend Brandon.Darla
I learned the hard way what I needed in a lawyer for my divorce. Fortunately, I had a chance to use that knowledge to found what I needed in Allison and team at PZ. A divorce is emotional, scary and often frustrating. Allison and Kelly helped navigate the process by helping me develop a plan and sticking to it. Communication and honesty during this process was second to none. There are lawyers out there that are cheaper and maybe some more expensive. Even if you pay $0 for any lawyer/paralegal other than Allison and Kelly, you're paying too much.

Attorney Allison Anders remained calm and professional as she guided me through my divorce and custody battle. She kept me on track and ultimately guided me to something I never thought I would ever actually achieve - freedom. I finally am divorced and have custody of my children.
There was a point in time when I felt like I was going to spend my life in separation limbo. I had spent five years fighting for the right to be a parent to my daughters and honestly, I had all but given up hope, hope that I would get to be the kind of dad I wanted to be, hope that we would be able to move on with our lives. I’d started to lose hope that I would get to have anything but this toxic back and forth with my ex from which I couldn’t escape. When I say that Allison changed my life, I mean that literally. Where I could see nothing outside of my own rawly scraped emotions and exhausting desperation, Allison’s knowledgeable professionalism was a life raft in a sea in which I felt like I had barely been treading water. She kept me calm and on track and ultimately guided me to something I never thought I would ever actually achieve--freedom. Even when my ex dropped a bomb on us at the eleventh hour, Allison nimbly sidestepped it and now I’m happy to say that I am finally divorced with the custody of my children I’d been fighting so hard for. Thanks to her, my family and I can finally start moving forward.Kyle M.
Divorce Attorney Allison Anders Protects Client's Interest
I wanted to thank Allison Anders, Kelly Shaffer, and the entire team at Parks Zeigler for helping me during a very difficult situation. Going through a divorce is never an easy situation, but Allison and her team helped me by walking me through the entire process and giving me excellent advice, especially when a last minute curve ball took me by total surprise. She ensured my interest were protected, which was a great relief given the stress of the situation. Thanks! Craig A. Zuidema, Norfolk
I'm forever grateful to everyone for their help and support.
I'd like to thank the Parks Zeigler, PLLC for their help professionally and personally. I recently went through a divorce and needless to say it was stressful. I met with Kellam and after talking with him I felt immediate relief. Very professional and a straight shooter, completely honest about what to expect throughout the process. I had bad days but Kellam reassured me that it'll work out and it did. Deb and Lia are the best! Can't thank them enough for their hard work and helping me through the difficult times. I'm forever grateful to everyone for their help and support. I'd recommend Kellam's law office to anyone in need of legal help. Thank you all again!Morrell C., Hampton,Va
Being a man in the state of Virginia, I was, as many men feel, fighting an uphill battle, nevertheless we prevailed with the direction and advice Ms. Anders provided.
I couldn't have asked for better representation. When emotions ran high during child custody battles, Ms. Anders remained composed and always steered us in the right direction. Being a man in the state of Virginia, I was, as many men feel, fighting an uphill battle, nevertheless we prevailed with the direction and advice Ms. Anders provided. Not only did she provide sound legal advice but, she was also mindful of my budgetary restraints. She may not be the cheapest attorney around but she helped save me so much more in the long run. If I were to do it again, I would certainly retain Ms. Anders again. ThanksScott
I learned from her to put the anger for my ex aside and focus on what was best for my daughter.
I found myself in a nasty custody battle and spoke to a few different attorneys, but once I met Allison and she took the time to get to know me and my concerns, I knew I had found someone who would help me and be there every step of the way. She was so patient with me as I was having a very difficult time and was quite needy of her reassurance. She was honest and told me when my demands were fair or unreasonable, and made me see what was important, that being my daughter. I learned from her to put the anger for my ex aside and focus on what was best for my daughter. Allison was always prompt when responding to me and made me feel that I had someone who cared every step of the way. While I pray I never have to go through another custody battle, if I did, I would certainly call Allison again to have her by my side. She really helped me to see what was important and what simply wasn't worth a fight. She helped me to remain a mature adult rather than to act in rash haste! Thank you Allison!!!!Amy
I highly recommend Kellam for any legal needs
My husband and I were splitting up after a short marriage. I did not know any divorce attorneys, but another lawyer referred me to Kellam. From our initial meeting I knew I wanted him as my attorney. Divorce is an extremely stressful time in one’s life. There were so many times I called Kellam stressed out and he was always there for me. I wish I could count the times he would tell me "not to worry," that I needed to concentrate on medical issues that I was going through at the time and that he would handle everything on the legal end. I have always felt he made my personal needs as well as my professional needs a priority. I highly recommend Kellam for any legal needs.Kelly A., Virginia Beach, VA
Kellam is excellent at what he does
"Kellam is excellent at what he does. When my wife was having custody issues over her oldest son, Kellam took up the case and got us everything we asked for - settling visitation, child support, and even got us some back support that we never expected. He knows his stuff. Since the first time Kellam helped us, we have needed counsel for three separate things and he has always given us the best advice in the areas he practices and referred us to the right people to take care of those things he does not handle. I hope that I never need a lawyer again, but if I do, my first call will be to Kellam."Robert K., Virginia Beach
I feel Kellam truly has a passion for what he does and is not practicing law simply to run up your bill.
“Kellam made the process of going to court as least stressful as possible for me. He handled my case regarding custody with my son as a top priority. Kellam worked weekends and long nights in order to ensure we were prepared at all times. When I had concerns about certain issues, he was able to communicate with me in a timely manner, whether by the phone, email, or in person. Being that I live in Maryland, Kellam did an amazing job of keeping me constantly informed and aware of what he was doing and why. He not only has great knowledge of the law but an ideal way of explaining things to a me so I could actually understand what was transpiring. This I feel is very important because when your emotions and thoughts are going all over the place, confusing legal terms and 'law speak' only leads to you missing information. I feel he truly has a passion for what he does and is not practicing law simply to run up your bill. Billing was always fair and very detailed. Kellam Parks will continue to handle all my custody matters with my son as long as I have a need for a lawyer.”Chris P., Maryland [Chesapeake Case]
