    • I recommend Jane Van Valkenburg.
    • I hired Jane more than 3 years ago.
    • Jane handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    In the most difficult time of my life, Jane was a blessing. Very calm and infomative, not dramatic, and most importantly, Jane has a heart. She understands this is a challenging time, and vengeance is not a worthwhile approach. Recommended to me by a friend, Jane was extremely flexible, honest, and considerate.

  2. Knowledgeable, tough, compassionate, caring

    As a lawyer myself, I was not thrilled with the idea of having to pay for one; but I was smart enough to know that family law is its own animal. So when issues involving my children with my ex-husband arose, I did some research and met with a couple of lawyers, but as soon as I met Jane I knew I had met the attorney that I wanted to work with. Going through a divorce or any kind of child custody battle is an unbelievably emotional thing, and so you look not only for an attorney, but for someone who is sensitive to your highly emotional state. I joke that family law lawyers are both attorneys and therapists, but it is not far from the truth. Jane is knowledgeable and tough, but also compassionate and caring. I would (and have) recommended her to many friends, family, and clients alike.
