Bethzabet Chavez is an associate attorney at Livesay & Myers, P.C., practicing exclusively family law. Ms. Chavez works in the firm’s office in Manassas, and represents clients in Manassas, Prince William County and all across Northern Virginia.

An attorney since 2016, Ms. Chavez is experienced in handling every type of family law matter in Virginia, including separation, divorce, adoption, custody, visitation and support cases.

Originally from Houston, Texas, Ms. Chavez earned her B.A. from the University of Houston. During college, Ms. Chavez entered the U.S. Army ROTC program. After graduation, she served for 10 years as a U.S. Army Military Intelligence Officer.

After leaving the military, Ms. Chavez returned to Houston to study law at Thurgood Marshall School of Law and to be near her family. Ms. Chavez graduated from law school as a single parent and with the help of her extended family.

In 2014, Ms. Chavez moved to Virginia to be where her ex-husband lives, so that her children could experience having both parents in their daily lives as much as possible. She dedicated her time soon after relocating to Virginia to working as a paralegal while raising her children and preparing to take the Virginia Bar Exam. Ms. Chavez earned her Virginia Bar license in 2016.

Ms. Chavez built a foundation in family law working for Legal Services of Northern Virginia from 2016 to 2018, representing victims of domestic violence in cases of physical and mental abuse. She then expanded her knowledge to other areas of the law working for a law firm in Fairfax from 2017 to 2020.

However, Ms. Chavez felt called back to the practice of family law. In February 2020 she started her own firm in Manassas, where she practiced exclusively family law for the remainder of that year. Ms. Chavez joined Livesay & Myers, P.C. as an associate attorney in January 2021.

Ms. Chavez is fluent in both English and Spanish.

Ms. Chavez resides with her children in Northern Virginia.
