About me

I am originally from Seattle, Washington and decided to come out east for law school and never left.  I have been practicing in  family law since I graduated law school in 2003.  I enjoy playing soccer and still play on several teams throughout New Jersey.

  • Heather K Martin

    I endorse this lawyer. I have worked with Veronica in the past as an adversary during which time I found her to be a zealous advocate for her client. She shows a compassion and understanding for her clients that is rare to find and her legal knowledge and analytical abilities are second to none. I strongly endorse Veronica Norgaard.
