As the Personal Representative of my aunt's Florida estate, the beneficiary's in Canada needed a lawyer. The first one, Paul Cowan of Golden and Cowan was an absolute disaster and in our view should be disbarred for misleading us, among other things. We wrote to the Florida authorities overseeing lawyers; despite all the evidence of Cowan's misrepresentations, even to their inquiry, they sided with this terrible lawyer.
Then mercifully we found Vanessa and thanks to her the mess that Cowan left us in was rapidly resolved and for a pittance compared to what Cowan charged. However, Cowan was not done, when it was time for the Court to sign off on the estate so it could be closed, this sicko Cowan demanded thousands of dollars for his 'time and effort', even though this time and effort was spent on misrepresenting himself to us and to the authorities.
Vanessa is a gem in a world of dirt bags apparently protected by the very authorities who are supposed to discipline lawyers like Cowan.
We would always seek her services if we ever needed assistance in Florida and we HIGHLY recommend that you work with Vanessa Vasquez de Lana anytime you need cost-effective and ethical help.

Vanessa is a top notch lawyer with a strong knowledge of family law. I couldn’t have asked for a better experience, she’s a professional, honest and on top of her case. I was impressed how quickly she gets back to you and keeping you informed at all times. Her experience is obvious and demonstrated, as she gets the job done proficiently and does not let anything fall through the cracks. A+++ for this super lawyer!

Vanessa is a fantastic attorney. I had heard that she was the finest family lawyer in Miami but after using her services I was sure of it myself. To the point, very professional and able to get the results I desired when I brought my personal dilemma to her attention. If you have a legal matter to attend to that requires child custody, divorce and separation, and/or probate legal representation Vanessa is the lawyer you should be choosing. Thank you Vanessa for your excellent work.

Vanessa is an excellent attorney, which I would highly recommend. Well versed in family law, knows the ins and outs of the system. Professional, not confrontational. Provided excellent counsel and advice, in order to provide a positive result for me. I got exactly what I was seeking in my case. Excellent support staff as well.

Affordable, caring, cordial, friendly, professional and prompt service! I wrote "affordable" - not cheap - who wants a cheap lawyer or a cheap surgeon? And yet, this reputable Lawyer is affordable! I changed my negative views about Lawyers until I needed one and whomever retains Vanessa's services and interacts with her, will forever cherish the experience of having engaged a "good" Lawyer.

We recently received great advice from Vanessa regarding issues with my step son and the difficult situation we were caught in with his father. After consulting with Vanessa we went with her advice which has made our situation so much better than we could have ever imagined.

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.

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.

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

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!
