I have never been in a custody battle, so I knew absolutely nothing about the process, costs , expectations, etc. After meeting Theresa I knew that I had someone that would fight for what was right. That was very important to me because she always made sure to keep me focused on what was best for my child, and kept me in the middle of the road when I started to veer off by putting my emotional concerns ahead of what needed to be done. Thank you. Because of her I was able stay the course mentally and emotionally. And she would even let me vent sometimes lol. And she is THOROUGH. I mean thorough, thorough. I mean she was so good that she ended up wrapping our case up sooner than everyone expected, and I don't think the opposing party saw her coming because she moved so much faster than they did. We started our case in the latter part of 2016, closer to October, We ended up wrapping our Custody battle in February and child support by May of 2017, but a lot of this was due to a lack of movement from the other side. She's not here to waste your money or your time, and she was very honest about everything, unlike some lawyers who are clearly in it for the money, Theresa really wants what it absolutely best for the child(ren) involved. You can tell that she is sensitive about that. She doesn't lead you on by making empty promises or threats. She tells you what it is legal and fair, which meant the world to someone who was unexpectedly served, and had no clue as to what to do. I know this is a novel, but I really can't say enough about her. In the end we were able to craft agreement that I was totally satisfied with, and we were able to avoid court, and everything thing that she said would happen did (To Theresa: We're still in phase one...and it's July). Thank you for being an amazing lawyer, And y'all she's really tiny, but you will quickly see that big things really do come in small packages :) Thank you for everything. Hire Her!!!!

My experience with Sodoma Law dates back to when Nicole Sodoma was with a previous practice. I knew I could count on Nicole and her team to handle an extenuating circumstance from my divorce 8 years ago. Attorney Viera was assigned to my case and provided the ultimate professionalism required to get an agreement prepped and signed off on by myself and my ex-husband. When things were getting clogged by the other party, attorney Viera was on top of keeping things moving. She continued to keep the process flowing and was supportive the entire time.

I hired Theresa to handle some matters in NC for me as I live in SC. The day of our consult I felt very comfy with her from the get go, she answered all my question in a manner that i understood and if i didn't understand then she explained more in depth until i did understand. I never felt as though i was being rushed or felt as though she wasn't paying attention to me i feel as though she listened to everything i had to say and understood my side of things as well as what the law was and what she could or could not do.The communication was EXCELLENT, I don't think i have ever had an attorney that the communication was this excellent, they love to use email rather then the phone which this is the first time that i have had a lawyer do this, i actually like it better, anytime i sent an email to ask a question or just let her know what my thoughts were i got an email back in a very timely manner. ( most of the time within a few hours i think once was the next day but i understood i wasn't her only client) What really impressed me with Theresa was the fact that she talked to me not only as her client but as a friend as well and made sure i was comfy with what the outcome of my case was going to be.I am also a truck driver so i wasn't able to be available to come to her office and sign things when she needed me to but she worked around things and mailed documents to me where ever i was going to be and went out of her way to make sure that she could accommodate what ever situation i was in at the time.Her paralegal Carrie was just as awesome and on top of her game as well, alot of communication through email which again i really liked. With this team i felt as though i was in good hands and never once did i ever feel as though they were avoiding me or anything ( trust me i can be a pain sometimes lol) even if it was just the simplest thing they always let me know something in a timely manner.I would recommend Theresa and her paralegal to anyone that wants to be in good hands with great communication and fight for every possible right you have. I really enjoyed Working with her.

Theresa Viera has been my lawyer for the past 3 to 4 years and I couldn't be happier. I had a case in court for child support and I was requesting full custody of my three daughters when I hired Theresa. Due to the case being pended by the judge until criminal court made it's decision it wasn't until this year that we went to family court. Theresa is an excellent lawyer, a loving and caring human being. With her knowledge of law, her hard work and dedication she was able to show the judge why the biological father of my daughters needed to have his parental rights terminated. The judge has signed the offical order on 09/20/2016 and I couldn't be more grateful to all the people involved in my case specially to God and Theresa Viera. Because of Theresa's hard work on my case my daughter's can be safe from there father, that had already caused so much harm to my oldest daughter, Kimberly. Theresa I thank you with all the love I feel as a mother and with all my heart. I am glad God put you in my path and thru you and the other people involved in my case my daughters can be safe. We can finally have closure and a form of justice has been done. If needed Theresa Viera would always be the lawyer I would go to. I couldn't have asked for a better lawyer to represent me in court. I wish you the best now and always.

Theresa comes across as a very busy person but somehow is still able to make you feel like you are important when she deals with you personally. She is very "matter of fact" and assertive which were huge pluses as a lawyer. She represented me in my separation and I am satisfied with how everything was handled. She is not only knowledgeable but she is able to communicate the knowledge effectively. She presents herself as someone of high intelligence and I have not found any evidence to the contrary which made it easier to feel that your concerns are being understood and validated. I would recommend.
**Bonus** She's gorgeous!

Theresa and her team have been helpful in every step of the process with my case. She has been quick to reply to my emails and phone calls. Theresa has a focus on what is best for myself and my child and that made me feel secure and fully represented. She has maintained communication with my wife's attorney and has kept me up to date. I have never felt that she was not fully dedicated to my case and helping me through my separation. I am very thankful to have hired Theresa and I recommend anyone who has children involved with court situations and family issues to at least consult with Theresa as she has the life and professional experience to help you through tough times. She puts your family first and works on what the best resolution is.

Theresa did a great job with my divorce case. She was very well prepared and was determined to help me win my case. Justice always wins and Theresa made sure of it.

Theresa was very confident from day one. I had questionable proof of my wife's affair. Theresa told me not to worry and always called the opposing attorney's bluffs. She pushed forward and got the job done in a timely matter. She also worked very easily around my busy work schedule using phone, email, and office visits. The office staff were very helpful and sweet.

I never could find consistency from phone conversation to followup conversation. I was not fully informed what my flat fee included or not included. My $3000 flat fee didnt even include requesting documents from opposing attorney which takes five minutes so I can make a fair or reasonable settlement offer. I was constantly reminded that every time I talk to my attorney, it could cost me more money just to talk. I felt like my attorney was representing my wife instead of me by making statements like I should accept whatever my wife wanted without looking at numbers or my finances. While I am waiting for a acceptance or a counter offer from my wife, I found out my attorney had closed my file without even notifying me first. I found out through the same correspondence sent to the opposing attorney. I have new representation now and feel fully represented now.
