About Me

I ACCEPT CASES IN YAVAPAi, YUMA, MARICOPA, MOHAVE AND COCONINO COUNTIES. Call anytime to discuss your case. I have practiced law in Arizona for the past twelve years, primarily in the areas of criminal, family and juvenile law. My husband is a retired U. S. Marine and a defense attorney for the Yavapai County Public Defender's office. I have worked for the Yuma County Public Defender's Office and Yavapai County Public Defender's Office and opened my private practice in June 2004. I am experienced in handling all types of criminal cases, contested and uncontested divorces, child custody, parenting time, child support cases and juvenile matters. I represent Mothers and Fathers equally in custody matters since both are equally as important in a child's life. Please feel free to contact me by telephone at 928-910-9110 or at valarie.mcneice@azbar.org. My fees are negotiable and payment plans are available.

  • Robert Michael Way

    I endorse this Valerie's work having worked with her as opposing counsel when I was a criminal prosecutor at the Yuma County Attorney's Office. In each of my cases including trials, I found her very competent and ethical. She defended her client's interest with integrity and diligence. She is good advocate and fair minded.

    I endorse attorney Valarie A. McNiece. I have had the privilege of reading several of her informative posts here on this web site, and I am struck by her adeptness and clear understanding of the issues she has provided information on. I would not hesitate to give her name and number as a referral if anyone asks me if I know a good lawyer up in the Coconino/Yavapai County areas.
