I would just like to extend my appreciation to the Law Office of Elizabeth Briceno for all her hard work, experience and full time and attention that she put into my child custody case.
I am truly grateful for her professionalism and achieving me a positive outcome on my case. Thank you so much for all your help in my time of need.
Elizabeth has been very helpful. She explains every step in order for me to understand what is going on. She is a hard worker and she is the best attorney!
Mrs. Briceno-Velasco is the best! I've dealt with a number of attorneys over the years but none like her. She was always responsive, kept me in the loop, and constantly looked out for my interests. Furthermore, she knew my financial situation and was fair and specific in her billings...I never felt like she milked the time spent just to get paid. Most of all her directness was much needed especially when it's hard to be objective about one's situation. In family law situations, Elizabeth Briceno-Velasco would be the only one I would recommend!!!
I was very happy with Mrs. Velasco and everyone I associated with at the law office. I felt comfortable and very informed. Mrs. Velasco is on top of everything which I loved because my last attorney from 10 years ago was hard to get a hold of. I'd highly recommend her for your child custody/support matters.
I was devastated to learn that my ex was taking me back to court again for custody/child support. I had a previous attorney but felt like I wasn't being represented to the fullest. I needed someone who would fight for me in court, who would speak my concerns to the judge. Elizabeth has done that and more. Her knowledge and aggressiveness in court far outweighs the stellar reviews she receives from anyone else on this site. I have nothing but praise for Elizabeth and her team. I highly recommend this firm and this attorney! Thanks Elizabeth!
Elizabeth handled my custody case in record time. Dealing with my custody issue was extremely stressful for me. Elizabeths reasurance helped me get through it. She was up front, did not sugar coat anything, and was very sensitive to my needs. Being a parent herself, she understood the nature of my case. I highly recommend Elizabeth when it comes to custody issues, as I am 100% satisfied with the outcome of my case.
Working with Atty. Elizabeth was a huge help in dealing with my divorce. She is an excellent family law attorney, who cared about my best interests. She is very competent, well prepared and always available to communicate when I had any questions or concerns. Elizabeth was upfront about my legal situation and minimized the times we had to meet. I highly recommend Elizabeth to anyone in need of a family law attorney.
If you have a mental disability stay away from her. She does not understand mental illness and what people who have this kind of disability goes through. She failed to communicate with the opposing attorney to have the DNA testing done earlier, causing me to pay more money out of my pocket. Although she did her job from beginning to end, it was a very unpleasant experience working with her. Every time I asked her a question, she gave me an attitude. She lacks empathy and will try her best to make you feel bad about your situation.
Having my son was the happiest day of my life but the weeks and months after not so much. HIs father wanted no involvement in the pregnancy yet wanted 50% custody when he was born. Naturally, I was terrified. I contacted Elizabeth and she assured me right away the law was on my side. She quickly filed paperwork to start the process and after 45 days had him paying me a sizeable amount of child support which up to that point he had refused. He and his attorney tried strong arming and playing hardball but Elizabeth would just very calmly state the facts and not give in or even get excited. She advised me every step of the way, answered every question and concern right away and got me EVERYTHING I was fighting for. She is a true class act!! An amazingly well versed attorney that is quick to think, very strategic and resourceful. Aggressive yet, calmly assertive is also very compassionate to boot. I couldn't have asked for more.
I'm extremely happy with the services I have received so far. Elizabeth and her staff have been great to work with, they are very professional, caring and sympathic to each individuals needs. My case is one of the more difficult cases to resolve as the other party is not willing to resolve issues. Elizabeth has been very knowledgeable with every aspect of my case, has handle all of the required documentation herself, most attorneys do not do that , their paralegals do.
I'm extremely pleased with her and would recommend her to represent my family and friends.
