Summary

Nicole O'Neal is an attorney at Livesay & Myers, P.C., practicing exclusively family law. Her practice covers every type of family law matter in Virginia, including separation, divorce, custody, visitation and support cases.

Originally from Rhode Island, Ms. O'Neal enlisted in the United States Navy in 2008 and served on active duty until 2015. Stationed in both Gulfport, Mississippi and Hampton Roads, Virginia, she completed two combat tours to Afghanistan, as well as an additional deployment to Japan focusing solely on humanitarian relief after the tsunami in 2011.

Ms. O'Neal became interested in family law when she was promoted to a non-commissioned officer and her junior troops began approaching Ms. O'Neal with their family problems such as divorce, child custody and visitation, and the division of marital property (including military retired pay) upon divorce. Ms. O'Neal familiarized herself with Virginia family law, as well as the federal laws governing military divorce cases. She found the material challenging yet rewarding—and the experience inspired Ms. O'Neal to pursue a career as a family law attorney.

Ms. O'Neal graduated cum laude from Old Dominion University in 2015 (after completing all undergraduate coursework while on active duty). She then left the U.S. Navy to begin her studies at the University of Richmond School of Law. Ms. O'Neal earned her J.D. degree in May 2018, graduating with the Family Law Certificate "with Distinction." She joined Livesay & Myers as an associate attorney in 2019.

Ms. O'Neal works in the Fredericksburg office of Livesay & Myers, P.C., and represents clients in Fredericksburg, Spotsylvania, Stafford and surrounding areas.
