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.

Unfortunately I had to go through a custody battle with my childrens father. I was given Elizabeths name from a close friend as a reference. I couldnt have been given a better person to help me through this difficult time. I felt she always had my best interest at hand. She kept me very informed and advised me what my options were. At no time during my case did I feel powerless, she worked with me and had the childrens best interest in mind. She was very professional and kind, I felt she had genuinine concern for me and my children.
Elizabeth was always available for phone calls and returned emails back promptly. The staff at the attorneys office was always nice and helpful as well. If you are reading these profiles it is unfortunate that her services are needed, but I truly am thankful I came across Elizabeth and I am sure those who choose to retain Elizabeth will not be let down. She is a great person and a caring attorney. Good luck with your circumstances, Sincerely, A Grateful Mother

Being a police officer for over 15 years I had a firm grasp of the workings of criminal law, but had almost no clue at all about what to expect in a family law matter. Liz helped me with a very difficult divorce. It involved a restraining order, child custody issue, and a lengthy 730 evaluation. She was very knowledgeable and always kept me informed of issues that would arise with my case. She was always readily available to guide me through this matter and made sure that all my questions where answered regarding any of my issues/concerns. I was granted a very favorable judgment when all was said and done. I cant help but think this was as a result of Liz's hard work and dedication to her clients. I am very pleased to know that there are still people such as Liz who take great pride in their work. The staff at Vincent W. Davis & Associates was OUTSTANDING! Every time I met Liz I was very pleased with the level of professionalism exemplified by everyone at this office. I would highly recommend this firm especially Elizabeth.

Ms. Briceño-Velasco did a fantastic job finishing my divorce, which included custody issues. Throughout the process she always demonstrated the basic elements of good work – she responded quickly to every inquiry; she explained our options realistically; she always appeared in court without any problems or delays; she was honest, accurate and up-front about the costs for taking my case. She also made me feel very reassured, and absolutely confident in having her represent my best interests, which she did when the time came to go to court. She did and said what I would have, better than I ever could have done, which is what a good attorney does when they represent a client. I worked hard to build my case, and Ms. Briceño-Velasco was both realistic and accepting of my wishes. She understood my goals, helped me understand how to accomplish them or re-focus where necessary, and executed things in court so that it got done.
What made her exceptional was her constant diligence and hard work in getting my case progressed, and her demeanor in court - she is very skilled in dealing with opposing counsel and working with the judge and other court workers. She knows the Pasadena Court, and it is apparent from her attitude that she is very familiar with the Court’s specific procedures and expectations, which is crucial to working effectively and efficiently. She was very decisive in communications and shrewd in negotiations with opposing counsel; she was very organized and ready to adapt to situations that changed unexpectedly. She got the job done, and did it well.
She is also really nice and pleasant to work with, and like other reviewers have said, just a really good person. She did a great job for me, she is a really great attorney.

"Over one year, I got involved in a family law matter. Since I had never been involved in such a process, I felt very confused and worried. Attorneys Elizabeth Briceno-Velasco and Vincent W. Davis had the knowledge, expertise and most importantly, PATIENCE, to break it all down to my level so that I could understand, which helped me tremendously. I was also very impressed with their knowledge of the court system in that they were able to accurately predict the outcome of my case. They fought hard to get me very good results. I am very happy with their legal services. If you are in a similar situation, I recommend that you contact them right away."

Not only did Mrs. Briceno provide me with excellent leagal representation, but she also provided me with a realistic outlook on my situation. Allowing me to fully understand and see the situation for what it was.
Mrs. Briceno took the time to familarize herself with my case and listen and consider all of my concerns. She was very quick to respond to all of my emails, questions, and concerns, and did her best to make herself avalible to me.
She made a difficult situation understandable and comfortable, and I could not have asked for a better attorney to handle my case.

I am really happy with the way my family law case was handled by the Law Offices of Vincent W. Davis, especially Attorney Elizabeth Briceno-Velasco. I couldn't have asked for a better result in my case. Before hiring them, I was dreading going to court because I was overwhelmed by all the paperwork and did not really understand what I was supposed to do in my case. I'm happy to say that the process was made alot easier with their help. I don't think I would've gotten the same good results without them. When I was involved with another legal matter, I hired them without a hesitation. If anyone has any questions, feel free to email me at [Email removed by Avvo Staff]

I highly recommend Elizabeth. From my first office visit with her I knew right away I wanted her to represent me. She made me feel at ease. She is smart and knowledgeable. She listened attentively to my worries and concerns. She guided me through the divorce process with total support, which I really needed it. Great rapport. Elizabeth gets an A+ rating from me.
The office support staff is great. In fact, the two receptionists by the name of Amy are wonderful. They made me feel at home from the moment that I entered the office. They are courteous and friendly.
I highly recommend the Law Offices of Vincent W. Davis. If you want more information about Elizabeth and this law firm, please feel free to call me at 562-924-0635

I had an extreamly crazy family law case. My ex filed 5 FALSE DCFS/CPS reports, and a FALSE restraining order.. Which brought my visitation down to 1 day a week monitored. She helped me regain 50/50 custody, and clear my name. She is extreamly personable, and very knowledgable. She is very sweet, and caring. She comes off very mild at first in the court room, which allows the other attorneys to take down their defenses, then...BAM! She blows them out of the water! I honestly wish I had hired her FIRST because it would have saved me a lot of heart ache and money..
