The Smyers Law Firm is a child advocacy and family mediation firm serving Richmond, Henrico, Chesterfield and surrounding counties. Elizabeth Smyers founded The Smyers Law firm because she is passionate about helping children and serving families in crisis.
Family mediation can help you resolve your problems faster without another fight. The end of a relationship can be a challenging time, especially when there are children involved. We can help you avoid the expense, stress and on-going court proceedings by resolving your issues through mediation.
Children are often caught in the middle of disputes between adults. Our firm is dedicated to serving the best interests of children as guardians ad litem in cases involving minors. In Virginia, a guardian ad litem is an attorney appointed by a judge to provide the court information regarding the child and parties and to make a recommendation as to what he or she believes is in the best interest of the child. The guardian ad litem's responsibilities include conducting interviews, reviewing relevant records and participating in court hearings or mediation sessions.
