Vija handled my case professionally and effectively. In court she is knowledgable and courteous. She is painfully fair and never loses sight of the ultimate goal. I truly felt I had a friend and a voice of reason during the most difficult time of my life. She understands the financial and emotional strain that permeates during these type of cases. I continue to look to her for advice, which she selflessly provides. She is without a doubt one of the best.
When I interview Vija, She told me what I wanted was possible. She sold me on her. As things got going with court she began speaking a different tune. She repeatedly asked me over and over what I wanted and asking me to email her the list, although since the first time I had met her the list had been spoken or given to her numerous times. As the going got tough, she appeared to not be up for the battle. She allowed the other counsel to make all the rules. Never once did my myself, friends or family feel like she was doing her job or helping me. After 4 months of asking for child support to get started we still hadn't gotten anywhere with it. The whole process was a joke. It felt like she wanted a cut and dry case. When it proved to be anything other then that she ran the other way.
Vija is extremely responsive, and helped me in many situations now over the past seven years dealing with joint custody issues. While they may seem minor to the outside, they are emotional to the person, she helps keep that in perspective for you, and works with you to figure out the best solution in every situation. PEACE OF MIND with Vija! She's on speed dial until the youngest is 18!
