Great Divorce Attorney
Valerie was wondering in handling my case. She answered all my questions and also took the time to explain the process to me in full. She also was there for me to calm me down a bit when negotiations where heated. She guided me to make the smart decisions and what was best for me in the long run. I was extremely happy with her and with how everything worked out.

Highly recommended
I found Valerie to be professional, responsive, diligent and efficient, and would recommend her without hesitation. She was knowledgeable and experienced, which helped me contextualize and understand the process. She was also great at keeping things moving forward towards a resolution while remaining focused on what is important. Highly recommend her services.

Astute, professional, skilled
I've worked with many attorneys over the years in a professional capacity, and a few in my personal life. Attorney Valerie Ross is the most skilled and intelligent and personable attorney I have ever worked with. She listens to your needs, concerns, and issues, let's you know how the process goes, and manages to get you out on the other side with a fair resolution. As another reviewer noted, her agreements are crafted with tremendous skill and foresight. She added things into mine that I never thought of and didn't notice, but that became key later on. Excellent work. Consummate professional while still maintaining that human relationship with her clients. Couldn't be more pleased with the work she has done for me.

One of the Best
I hired Valerie to handle my divorce two and a half years ago. Not knowing any divorce lawyers at the time I turned to the internet for my search and came upon Valerie's website. I was instantly impressed and decided to make an appointment for a consultation. Valerie explained the process and worked in my best interest the entire time. My ex was very demanding and difficult to deal with, but she never backed down and made sure I came out getting what I deserved. She is professional, knowledgeable and right to the point kind of lawyer. I highly recommend hiring Valerie to represent you. I have since recommended her to a coworker and a friend and both have been very satisfied with her services.

You want this lawyer in your corner.
I can't say enough great things about Valerie! I was having an difficult time trying to negoiate something with my ex and she was a true pro. She is extremely bright and got straight to the resolution without all the nonsense that often goes along with divorce. I honestly wish I went to her sooner. I have since ref'd a few friends and they have been very happy as well. She can think on her feet and it was a huge comfort having her in my corner.

great lawyer
Valerie works in her clients best interest. I was very weak when it came to my ex's demands because he was a bully( and a cop) so I went along with everything he wanted to stop him from harassing me all the time. I even lowered the child support by 140 dollars a week even though Att. Ross told me not to. I also agreed not to move more than 20 min. away(like an idiot), Now he is non stop with the abuse and sending people to stalk me. Thank God Att. Ross took the part about moving out of the agreement because the only home I have is at the Cape. I didn't notice at the time and neither did his lawyer. LOL looks like the joke is on them. She obvi knew I wasn't thinking clearly so she did what was best for me. I have nothing but good things to say about her. I can now move without another court date asking to strike that part of the agreement.

Unprofessional
This attorney was hired to represent me in a post divorce case. She took a very hefty retainer and told me that she was going to the court house the following week to file the appropriate paperwork. Out of the blue, she sent me a letter informing me that she no longer had time to deal with my case. When I tried contacting her via email and telephone, she refused to get back in touch with me.
