Attorney Steve Miyares succeeded in efforts to have the Virginia Beach Circuit Court order a ballot referendum for his client, the Political Action Committee "No Light Rail Virginia Beach". Opponents claimed the group did not satisfy the legal requirements to place the referendum on the November 2016 ballot in Virginia Beach. However, Mr. Miyares successfully argued that the group had met all legal requirements. The Court agreed and entered an order to place the referendum on the ballot.

Miyares client successfully awarded past due spousal support payments in Virginia Beach JDR Court. The non-paying party tried to argue that spousal support should be terminated under Virginia Code 20-109 because the client had remarried. Steve Miyares successfully argued that the language of the Property Settlement Agreement between the parties at the time of their divorce satisfied the statutory provisions and required that the spousal support still be paid as originally agreed even though the spouse had remarried.
