soldier and boyDo you need the assistance of an organized, responsive Virginia Beach legal team?

Whether you need legal help with your divorce, your child custody and visitation plan, or a criminal offense, it is important that you are represented by someone who understands your needs, knows Virginia law, and will work diligently at your side for the best possible outcome.

At the Law Office of Lori A. Michaud, we believe that all of our clients deserve individual attention, a unique plan of action, and a comprehensive strategy for success. We know well that no two cases are alike and that the right option for one person may not be the right option for everyone.

So many of our clients walk through our doors and ask, is everything going to be okay? After listening to your story, we will give you an honest, straightforward answer to that question and then begin work on a solution to your problem.

Navigate the legal system with an assertive Virginia attorney at your side.  

We work for real people with real problems that touch at the heart of their lives.


Divorce and child custody are two very unique legal issues: both are extremely emotional topics and both have the potential to change many aspects of your life. Our family law professionals understand the uncertainty, stress, and confusion that often accompany these issues – and we are dedicated to providing you with both the answers you need and the know how to secure your rights.

Located in Virginia Beach and serving the surrounding Tidewater area, our law office handles a number of family legal issues regarding military personnel stationed at Fort Story, Camp Pendleton, Naval Air Station Oceana, and the Naval Amphibious Base, Little Creek.

Make certain that your rights are protected after a criminal charge in Virginia.

Being charged with DUI or domestic violence in Virginia can be overwhelming, angering, and embarrassing. More importantly, being convicted of such a crime can have serious consequences, including jail time, heavy fines, a marred permanent record, possible loss of employment and a major impact on your family relationships. It is vital that you have an assertive, organized, and responsive legal representative as soon as possible after being charged with a criminal offense such as a DUI or domestic violence.

All too often, those who have been charged with a crime can feel extremely alone in their legal battle – whether they are innocent, whether they are seeking a fair sentence, or whether they are simply trying to protect their rights. We enter into these cases without judgment and without assumptions.
