About me

I always welcome discussion about any case. If I'm not the right "match" for your needs, I will be up-front and will point you in another direction. I want people to find the right lawyer for the right purpose, and I'm always willing to refer to others. But I'm also hopeful that our Firm is right for you & can get you the results you want. Feel free to call or email me with your questions - no matter what!


Our firm specializes in Business Law - both litigation and transactions. Personally, I handle commercial matters, civil cases, and criminal defense. I also do Mediation/Alternative Dispute Resolution. Ronan & Firestone is a great group of lawyers -- both professionally and personally, and I am more than excited to be the newest "partner" in the group.

My personal aspirations include: 1) Making my clients satisfied with their representation; and 2) Maintaining the best possible service I can provide. I do not keep financial goals, as finances are only a fringe benefit of law practice for me. My passion lies in helping people and fighting for justice -- not in getting rich. But, of course, the occasional $1 Million verdict/settlement is always welcomed!

Someday I hope to be a partner of Ronan, Firestone, Manolio-Deden. For now, I'm happy to enjoy life as a competent litigator and member/partner of the Firm.

  • John M McKindles

    I endorse this lawyer's work without hesitation. Over the years, I have had the challenging opportunity of advocating against Veronica, and uniformly found her to be a top notch attorney. She is extremely astute, has strong legal acumen and is a tireless crusader for her clients. I strongly encourage anyone needing the services she provides to consult with her.
