In times that are trying emotionally and you have absolutely no background in legal matters you need someone you can trust to look out for you and your best interests. Vanessa is DEFINITELY that person. She is an excellent and very skilled lawyer but what makes her extraordinary is she is like a guiding light in these times when you feel so lost. She is personable as well as professional and knowledgeable. She put me at ease, helped me to understand my options through all my tears and in the end I was able to be at peace and have peace of mind I was not alone in this process. She was powerful in mediation. She "out-lawyered" my ex's lawyer by far and that is important in this process. You walked out knowing she was in control. The best. I felt I needed to be defended and she was wonderful. Thank you Vanessa!

I highly recommend Vanessa as an attorney to anyone that needs legal assistance. She is truly the BEST lawyer I’ve ever met! If it wasn’t for Vanessa my case would still be unresolved. She came through for me during this difficult time and resolved my case in a short period of time. I am very pleased with the way she handled my case. Not only is she is very knowledgeable, trustworthy, and very perceptive but she always keeps you informed throughout your case. The best part of her services is that all communication was directly with her and she is always available (day, night, on vacation, etc.). She understands the process very well and gives the best legal advice. I am very pleased with the way she handled my case and would definitely use her again in the future.

I'm a single father to a beautiful lil girl who is my everything...I am trully grateful to Vanessa and her staff for helping me through this process, i could not have done it without them. She was able to help get results in a timely manner and in doing so lifting a great burden of my shoulders. She is knowledgeable and attentive to detail.... there were a few things that i would have missed if she had not pointed them out. Vanessa alongside her paralegal heather make a great team i would highly recomend their services.

It was a pleasure working with Mrs. Vasquez. She was able to handle my case and get the results that I needed for the resolution of my divorce. She is very knowledgeable and comes across as being very confident when dealing with the other party's attorney. She does not back down from confrontations and is able to "cut to the chase" so to speak in order to get results.

A very honest lawyer. She did not like to spend time fighting in things not honest.

In an amicable divorce she honored our wishes without trying to induce a war. She took our desires, fit it into Florida law, and we spent minimum time (i.e. money) coming to a resolution. She advised me where I could fight certain areas, my wife's lawyer advised her where she could fight also. When we told her that was not our desire she honored the request and never tried to milk us for more time by instigating a fight. I left feeling she was trying to help us and not trying to start any kind of discord just to result in more lawyers time.

Vanessa was extremely straightforward and was able to understand my needs and wants. She is confident and was able to get everything that I wanted. She put gave me a breakdown of everything and was there to explain anything that I didn't understand.

Attorney Vazquez de Lara helped me navigate a custody case that seemed like I could never win. Having to deal with my case in two different states and paying attorneys who did absolutely nothing to help my case attorney Vazquez stepped in an provided outstanding service. Her team was amazing to work with, they all worked diligently to get my case settled in my favor. If you are looking for a top notch attorney who has a great work ethic and provides outstanding legal representation then Vanessa is the attorney you are looking for. I would highly recommend this attorney to anyone looking for a family attorney.

Vanessa and her team provide exceptional legal experience on all of her matters. She also passionately cares about the Hispanic community and endeavors to educate them on the legal processes in which she represents them. I highly endorse her and her team.
