    • I recommend Elizabeth Vonau.

    Elizabeth has handled numerous cases for me. Every case she handled it was clear what should be done, how it was going to be done, what the best outcome in my cases would be and how she would assist me in attaining that outcome. In a world where money is tight and you don't know who to trust, I put my money and trust on Elizabeth.

    • I do not recommend Elizabeth Vonau.

    I hired Beth Vonau for a DUI that I received about a year ago. It was my first DUI so I was very worried about it so after talking to about ten other lawyers about it whom I couldn't afford I hired Beth Vonau. She first told me that because of my situation-I have Huntington's Chorea-that all of the tickets I received for my DUI were going to be taken off my record and that it was only going to be about a $1,000.00 in fines which I thought was great. After it was all over that wasn't the case one ticket still remained-failure to reduce speed-also it was more than the $1,000.00 in fines it was over $2,216.00. There was also fines she didn't tell me about $500.00 for the restitution also failure to reduce speed $181.00 also DUI $816.00 also DUI $466.00. Lastly every time I had court she was the last lawyer to arrive.

      Lawyer Comment:

      Perhaps your memory of the case is unclear. My memory is crystal clear. When we spoke of your case I informed you that any field sobriety exercises would be useless given your Huntington's diagnosis. However - that did not negate the breath sample of .113. There was a car crash, a breath sample over .08 and an admission that you drove the car and crashed it. 8 citations were issued. In the end I had 6 citations were dismissed. 1 of the DUI citations was pled to with court supervision, no conviction and a fine in the amount of $800. 1 citation for leaving the scene of an accident was reduced from a misdemeanor to a petty offense of failure to reduce speed to avoid an accident again with court supervision, no conviction, no fine, court costs only totally $181. In addition there was $500 in restitution to fix damage done to private property due to the car crash. The orders were drafted by myself, I provided them to the Court Clerk who then entered the numbers into the computer and cost sheets were generated. Once I had all the final costs you and I sat in the second conference room on the left and reviewed the orders. I sat in the chair beside the door and you sat in the chair with you back to the door. On the orders it is clearly written that there is $500 in restitution, $800 fine, costs only on the failure to reduce speed ticket and a separate order documenting the total costs including the fine on the DUI totaling $2,316. On that form I also added a notation as to the $500 in restitution. Your signature in on the sentencing order , the trial waiver and the cost sheet. After you and I reviewed the whole of the orders we appeared in front of the Judge where he reviewed the sentence and specifically asked you if you could afford to pay the fine and costs. You indicated you had the ability to pay and the Clerk even made a notation as to this admission by you in the Court’s file. After Court you reported to the Compliance Office on the 4th floor where a compliance officer reviewed the orders with you again including the total costs and restitution. Now, nearly a year later you claim you had no idea what was done. This is simply untrue. Prior to my receiving notice of this unfair and false review you contacted me via email and asked if I could assist you in getting additional time to finish paying the fines, fees and costs. I agreed to come to court with you to help you get additional time and I offered to do this at no additional cost to you as you indicated that funds were tight due to a family situation. It was after this agreement that I received this spurious review. When we met in court I reviewed all of the above with you and you indicated that there must just have been a misunderstanding. Given that a week has gone by and you have not changed this review I must now defend myself publicly. As I told you in Court, the company I am a Partner in has 8 employees. I take it very seriously that the work I do and my public image plays a role in maintaining these employees and being the primary income for their households. Given the specific facts in your case, the results in your matter were excellent and despite the fact that you posted this review I still showed up to assist you in extending your supervision, for free, and on time.

If I ever needed a lawyer again for this type of situation I would definitely use her services.

    • I recommend Elizabeth Vonau.
    • I hired Elizabeth 6-12 months ago.
    • Elizabeth handled my Real Estate matter.

    Ms. Vonau was extremely professional in her dealings with all parties involved in a real estate transaction. The transaction was more complicated and extended than most closings and Ms. Vonau kept all involved informed and on task. When last minute issues threatened the completion of the closing, Ms. Vonau worked calmly yet firmly to resolve the issue.

    • I hired Elizabeth 1-3 years ago.
    • Elizabeth handled my DUI / DWI matter.

    I could not be happier with choosing Elizabeth to represent me in my recent legal case. She was extremely competent, explaining to me the ins and outs of the procedure and letter of the law, offering many options and potential outcomes to help me strategize my case.

    After achieving favorable results with the Judge, she also followed up as the court tried to make me jump through extra steps, handling every one of them diligently for me.

    I would highly recommend letting Elizabeth Vonau represent you in your legal case as her services are top notch and far beyond what the normal lawyer will provide.

    • Elizabeth handled my Contracts / Agreements matter.

    Elizabeth was a great lawyer for me. She helped me with a housing contract the whole way to the closing date. At the closing she explained everything that I was signing for to an extent that was beyond expectations as that time was very nerve wracking for me being a first time homebuyer.
