Advice for VOIP shaping in multi-LAN environment

Thanks for your time. I wanted get your input on the specific traffic shaping schedulers/algorithms that I should consider. I'll outline my goals and then provide an overview of my network.
Primary goal: Prioritize VOIP traffic. I have a home VOIP line and AT&T microcell. The call quality gets destroyed during heavy internet use. I would expect no more than 4 concurrent users.
Secondary goal: De-prioritize VPN traffic (although, I am willing to skip this goal if it would over-complicate things).
Current release of pfSense x64
Supermicro SYS-5018A-FTN4 with 16G ECC ram
2x Juniper ex2200, "stacked" in a virtual chassis
Comcast, consumer grade internet (130 mbps down, 12 mbps up). Pings to 18.104.22.168 average 20-30ms.
Single physical WAN interface, although there are two gateways (one for OpenVPN traffic, and one for everything else)
"LAN" side of traffic:
–--- 4x front-facing interfaces are bundled in LACP to Juniper ex2200 switch
----- LACP bundle is a trunk of 7 VLANs; VLANs are given separate "logical" interfaces within pfsense
----- One of the VLANs exclusively carries the desired VOIP traffic
----- One of the VLANs exclusively carries traffic bound to the OpenVPN tunnel
I would appreciate your input in creating the following:
High Priority: VLAN with VOIP traffic
Middle Priority: Regular traffic
Low Priority: VLAN with OpenVPN traffic [although, we can skip this priority level, if it would over-complicate things]
Thanks for your time.
