Patricia is kind and compassionate to the needs of her clients. She thoroughly reviews the pros and cons of each course of action and strives to reach the best possible outcome for her clients. She presents a cost effective case strategy and does not perform unnecessary tasks. Her honesty and candor distinguish her from many of her colleagues. I would highly recommend her services for anyone.
I've known Ms. Van Haren as both a paralegal and now as a lawyer. Her work product is excellent and her experience is impressive. She recognizes that creating animosity or increasing it between two parties is never beneficial and attempts to mitigate it by creating fair alternatives to courtroom arguments. Her attention to detail and fast and easily understood responses to questions make her a very approachable and reliable attorney.
In a world that too often values undermining the other party to forward one's one goals, Patricia provides a stable platform of fairness, skill and integrity to the mix. I'm very happy to continue to have her work for me on a very difficult and ongoing custody case. To put it in perspective, I have gone from about 15 % custody to full temporary custody of my two girls at this time. It's something that could have never happened without the assistance of strong and decent legal counsel.
Patricia was a huge help to me as I went through an ugly divorce. She was really knowledgeable about what was going on and was tough on my ex-husband's lawyer. She fought hard for me in court and helped me get a good settlement. She was professional and firm when she needed to be, but because she has been through her own divorce, she understood what I was going through. I have recommended her to several of my friends and will continue to do so.
I have been working with Ms Van Haren for almost four years and I am so Thankful to have found her. If you want an Attorney who is always at your side, who always has your best interest at hand and who will always leads you to what is best for you then look no further.
