I was represented by Victoria L. King in not one, but two separate family court cases. Located in Ontario county, Ny. Victoria was super professional, not only that, she was very organized and on top of her cases! Victoria made me think we had a personal relationship the way she went hard for me!!! That alone says so much( let’s be realistic, especially for a public defender!!!!!) and it gave me the security I needed at such a difficult and trying time. I gave her 5 stars because she deserves every single one truthfully she’s 10 out of 5!! That’s how impressed I was with her performance! Best advice I can give anyone that’s looking for representation, call Victoria L. King! Professional, organized, dedicated, and doesn’t mess around, if you’re looking for that kind of service, then look no further!!!

Compassionate, Caring, and Smart Attorney
I was at work when I got served with the divorce papers. I never even saw it coming. The document said I had 20 days to file an answer or that my wife would get everything she wanted. I scrambled to find a divorce lawyer. I found Victoria doing a search on the Internet and set up a consultation. We sat down and talked about things specific to my case and what her strategy would. I thought what she said made sense so I paid the retainer fee and off she went. This divorce was one of the hardest things I've ever had to go through, but Victoria was there every step of the way. When I had questions, I could email her or call her. If she wasn't in, her paralegal was there to offer support and updates as to the case status. While I don't wish divorce upon anybody, if you need an attorney who is compassionate, caring, and smart, I would certainly recommend Victoria.

A great divorce attorney
A very smart attorney. I could tell she knew what she was doing. From the beginning to the end of my divorce she was always available to assist. If I couldn't get reach her, her staff was always available to help answer my questions. I wish I didn't have to go through this difficult divorce, but I'm glad that I had Victoria to help guide me through it. I would certainly recommend her to anybody looking for a good divorce attorney.

Best Advocate for A Child
We are so glad and relieved that Victoria sees this for what they are. Dealing wth mixed families cannot be easy, but Victoria sees through the garbage and advocates perfectly for the child.

Amazing experience
Victoria handled my custody case with so much passion and care! I have never seen an attorney fighting for their clients as much as she did. I have gone through many of attorneys in the past as my case was a very difficult and complicated one and she managed more in a few months alone than 5 attorneys in years! She is the best attorney ever! I would recommend 100%!

Attorney Legal Representation at it's finest
Victoria L. King is 1 lawyer I have found to be the most courteous, Kind, Reliable, Knowledgeable, Professional Lawyers I've ever had the pleasure of being represented by. She surpasses all expectations and I would refer her to anyone that I know needing a Lawyer in a Child Custody, Divorce, Family Court Case. She is leaps and bounds above any lawyer I have ever needed. I would highly recommend her. “The true test of a Lawyer does not lie in the will with which she goes to work, but in the excellence of the work she produces.”

One of the best family lawyers I've met
Victoria was the court's assigned Attorney for a Child (AFC) for my young kids during a very long and painful divorce proceeding that later was followed by an even longer custody battle. Unlike any other AFC, Victory was truly and sincerely dedicated to advocating for the best interests of the child even if it meant breaking away from conventional wisdom and confronting a court that was unsympathetic to her views. He courage and her foresight for what's in the best interest of the children is exemplary.

Compassionate Attorney
Attorney King was assigned by the court to represent my children in my divorce and custody case. Ms. King remained objective throughout the process and advocated on behalf of the children and their best interest.

Caring and involved
Ms. King was appointed as the child advocate in my custody case, a case that dragged on for years and continues. She is very professional. She appears in court as scheduled, is on time, and prepared. Ms. King truly has her client's best interest at heart. She remains focused on important matters and is able to concisely communicate to the court her observations and concerns. She demonstrates a high level of communication skills and is responsive to both telephone calls and emails. Not once did I have to make multiple attempts to reach her- my inquiries were answered promptly. I highly recommend Ms. King for child custody cases.
