Amazing attorney.
Vanessa did a fantastic job handling our home closing. She tirelessly represented our interests and made sure all parties involved stick to deadlines to make our home purchase a reality. She was always available to answer questions and quick to alert us of any potential issues that we need to be aware of during a long protracted process. We recommend her without reservations to any homebuyer.

Another easy, fast closing thanks to Attorney Masterson
I’ve worked with Attorney Masterson on the closing of several real estate deals and it’s always been an AMAZING experience. Whether refinancing, purchasing, or selling real estate, Attorney Masterson is THE ONE!

Venessa is my trust and go to legal advisor
It's been now 2 years since I am in touch with Venessa. I have been seeking her legal advice regarding my personal issues in the marital life. She is more than a lawyer to me. She always listens to me carefully , understands my problems, understands the importance that I give to my cultural values . She does understand my stand and how I want to react to my life situations in a more protective and polite way. She drafted my nupital agreement which was so thorough and well explained. She is friendly that whenever I need her , she jumps on to a phone call right away for me. I will continue to be in touch with her . I would recommend anyone who wants any legal advice regarding marital problems to visit her.

Incredibly knowledgeable and professional lawyer with a great attitude!
Venessa and her team helped my wife and I with the complex immigration process. We worked with Venessa for over a year and during that time she showed nothing but the essence of professionalism and dedication. Always very responsive to any phone calls/ emails, willing to find an answer to every question and backing it up with a solid research. Venessa helped us with filling out all the forms and spent a decent amount of time preparing us for the interview. The entire process couldn't have ended any better!

Superb knowledge, devoted and compassionate
I had very satisfactory experiences having Attorney Masterson and her team working on my cases from 2017 to 2020. They are not only very knowledgeable and thorough, also highly compassionate with a real heart which is a shining beacon in today's world. They not only carried me through countlessly hopeless moments in my life, they hand-delivered hope to me. If you are lost and struggling, do yourself a favor and go find them. They save life one at a time.

Attorney at Law
Vanessa was my Attorney when I bought my house in 2018, she answered all questions I had for her promptly and she is very transparent. When I was ready to open up an LLC, Vanessa helped me out and last Month I contacted her regarding refinancing my mortgage. Not only did she advise me, she referred me to a lender that was able to reduce my interest rate of 4.5% 30 year mortgage to 2.375% 15 year mortgage and I was able to close today as planned. She is very knowledgeable and I will be referring my friends to her for more business.

Venessa has the Patience of Job and will patiently work through all the obstacles put in front of her with great dedication.
Attorney Masterson has successfully handled a residential subdivision as well as two residential closings for our family. None of these transactions have been "typical" or "easy""yet Venessa and her team have been both fearless and patient and got each of these assignments completed successfully.

Excellent Service
Vanessa stayed open late just so I could close on my refinance. She is easily available via phone and email and communicates openly and often about all of my real estate needs.

Is all about Venessa the Law
I first met with Attorney Masterson during the closing of my new home. It was my first home. She was introduced to me by my Estate realtor. To my greatest surprise, despite the pandemic times, she was involved and very professional. She acted and treated me as though we have known for years. She is very intelligent and also pleasant. She made the closing so easy that all my fears about owning a home for the first time disappeared. She is very calm and Patience answering all questions when asked. Till present, i kept bothering her with challenging legal and non legal questions and she is there to give answers and solutions. No regrets whatsoever knowing her and i have recommended her to my friends, colleagues, church members and i will continue to recommend her. She have a lovely personality and also dedicated to her profession.

I-485 Denial - Motion to Reconsider
When I found Vanessa, my green card case was very messed up. When I transfered my case to Vanessa, she was very direct and upfront laying down all my options and the odds of approval for my green card. We both decided to file a Motion to Reopen/Reconsider knowing that the odds were low. Vanessa prepared an outstanding statement, very knowledgleable, leaving no room for doubt. It turned out to be approved. I strongly recommend her service and will continue to consult her wjen renewing my green card. She is professional and attentive. I felt well represented and in capable hands during the process.

Attorney Vanessa Masterson Review
I chose Attorney Masterson after searching and reading many attorneys reviews and by far she has the best. I meet with Ms. Masterson for help on my divorce. She was very good at explaining the steps and situations I will encounter along the way. She make me feel at ease and I knew she had my back. She listen to my concerns and help me understand everything. She kept me informed through the process until I got divorce and everything was completed. I hope I do not need another attorney in the future but if I do I will certainly hire her again. Hermann Jahn

Professional, knowledgeable representation at a great value
Venessa recently represented me in a real estate closing where I was selling the property myself. She was knowledgable, responsive and took great time explaining the process (as a first time seller) with me. She acted as my advocate throughout the process and wasn't afraid to follow up with the other party when needed. I would highly recommend her for any future legal needs you have. I'm so grateful we worked together.

Rev. Margaret
I first met Attorney Masterson 8 years ago when I was refinancing my home. She was introduced to us by a friend whom we thank every time we meet him. She was very wonderful, and made my husband and I feel like we were the most important people on planet earth. For us, it was love at first sight because of how she handled us and our case. We have never looked back. We consult and hire her in every legal case we have. Vanessa is very professional, pleasant, intelligent and takes every case aggressively as if it were her own. She serves us like we were kings and queens. I have never found anything negative about Vanessa. Even if it seemed like your case was dead, Attorney Masterson will bring you results. She passes the 100% mark by far. She is a woman of integrity who treats us with so much respect and care. I can recommend her to everyone even in my dreams. I have recommended a lot of my friends and acquaintances to her and, they always come back to us very grateful we did.

Examplary work and a skilled professional
We would love to start our review for Venessa by giving her an Excellent Star. We had a very positive experience seeking help from Venessa in regard to bringing Sarah here in America Legally. She helped us file a Petition for Alien Relative which was Successfully Approved by USCIS, she then also filed for Sarah's Immigration Request for Legal Permanent Visa and finally that was approved at the U.S Embassy in Nairobi, Kenya following Sarah's Interview for a CRI Visa which she passed and was given a Legal Permanent Residence in the U.S. We were very pleased with her Exemplary Work and attention she gave in to our case. We would not hesitate to refer any client in need of Legal Immigration Advice and Petitions. Now Sarah is in the U.S and is now with her U.S. Citizen Spouse. A BIG Thank You to Venessa's Law Firm and her Team, Bravo!!!! Jimmy Herlihy & Sarah

Dr. John-B Sanyu
A few months ago, I had an immigration case that needed a legal expert's input. Then, I remembered about a friend of mine who spoke about an attorney that helped him and his family with an immigration case. I contacted my friend, and he highly recommended Attorney Masterson. Immediately I emailed her, and she replied to my email in less than an hour. Without going into the details of my immigration case, I wish to point out some few but specific aspects that I noticed in her professional manner of handling my case. First, I found her to be social and honest all the times. She has a sense of listening and showing respect in all meetings. As you all know we live in a world where many people show no respect to their clients. In our conversation (on the phone and in person), I noticed that besides being a smart lawyer, she is also human and has a lot of great values. Second, while many people are scared of the high legal fees demanded by attorneys, attorney Masterson gladly offers her clients an affordable legal fee. Again, I think that she has taken a person decision to help people irrespective of their financial status. Third, she is very professional when handling a case. She does not promise 'heaven on earth' or make empty promises. She reviews and analyses the case (with all its merits and demerits) and discusses with you in a transparent manner. While many attorneys will tell you a mixture of truth, half-truths, or false promises, attorney Masterson on the other hand is an attorney that is not pretentious when talking with a client. She is not shy to share with you the possibility of losing a case because she is not a judicial officer in court to decide on a particular case but an attorney at law who is willing to help you to convince either the USICS or the court about her client's case. I wish to highly recommend her to any person who is or may be looking for legal immigration service. Attorney Masterson, I thank you and wish you many more years of serving the people in the US who are yearning for affordable legal services.
