We hired Venessa for our real estate closing. As a first time home buyer, she explained every bit of the process. She was patient with my questions... And I had a lot of questions.
During closing there were some problems that arose with the bank and the seller. I was glad that Venessa was on my side. She handled everything for me. Closing on a home for the first time was stressful enough, but Venessa made the process easier.

Attorney Masterson was managing my immigration case. During the entire process I was very well informed and all of my questions and issues were handled promptly with an excellent quality and expertise by Attorney Masterson.
I would strongly recommend Attorney Masterson to anyone who is seeking any help with immigration process.

It was Memorial day weekend and another busy weekend and I was hurriedly running through human traffic trying to catch my flight back from Houston to Boston to take care of some important business related to Home sale. I had a return ticket for Sunday but had to buy a one way ticket for Tuesday to allow me more time to complete my to do list which included notarizing and signing a 60 page Document for a pending home sale. How was I going to be able to accomplish this task I pondered as I buckled up my seat-belt.
The weekend went by fast and Monday came and I was yet to decide on who would have the time to do a quick turnaround to proof read the documents and being comfortable enough to notarize all pages in a short turn around. That was when I remembered I had Attorney Venessa Masterson’s business card in my briefcase. I sent her a late night text on Memorial Day evening to figure out her availability and also to let her know that I planned to be in her office the following day to ask for an express assistance with some document reviews. I received an inviting response back almost immediately and she said she would be in the office by noon the next day.
So the wife and I were at her office on-time the next day, where we were quickly ushered into her ever inviting office by her lovely office secretary Georgia. As always Attorney Venessa greeted us with a welcoming smile and warm handshake; asking after our family and work. After making us very comfortable we commenced with discussing the business of the day – she patiently listened to my request and took time to review the 60+ page document, ensuring that we were aware of what the document entailed and comfortable with the wording. We were able to complete all the reviews, signing and the exhaustive notarizing process within an hour and half. We were very grateful that she took out time from her busy schedule to attend to our pressing needs. When it was time to whip out the checkbook she turned down any fees and just said please just be my special guests at my family BBQ party next weekend. We plan to be there because it’s always a great time with Venessa; If you ever need assistance with any legal related issue – Immigration, Real-estate, Bankruptcy, Document Notary etc. please stop by her office or better yet give her a call or send her a text to setup an appointment. You will be very pleased with her timely and professional service. Venessa Masterson is not just our #1 Attorney we consider her as “Family”.
