I hired Veronica to represent me in my paternity matter and she did an exceptional job. She kept me up-to-date every step of the way and was a voice of reason when I was frustrated by my personal situation. She is very knowledgable, strategic, patient, and professional. I was very pleased with the outcome of my case and am very grateful to Veronica for her help in allowing me to be a major part of my son's life. I highly recommend her.

I consulted with Veronica a few times in matters for my divorce and family issues. Veronica was prompt, knowledgeable and very caring. I never hired due to my financial situation, but I would recommend her to anyone looking for a great attorney. I am sure I will be hiring her in the future.

I hired Veronica Semino (FLBar # 70592) to represent me in a dissolution of marriage case. Right up to the minute I retained her she was prompt, communicative and very engaged. This quickly changed after she cashed my retainer check, what I got then was weeks of waiting for responses, scoldings for texting her cellphone and zero accountability.
Right after I retained her, and once filings and initial paperwork were to be put together it took her 10 calendar days to even acknowledge my multiple calls, voice messages, emails and text messages, only to then scold me on how inappropriate it was for me to text her, when we had been texting prior to payment of the retainer.
Later, after initial filings and after receiving opposing counsel’s response, it took her 14 calendar days to get back to me on what was to be done. After that, when the response was filed, I was not given a reasonable amount of time to review the document and it was filed with a mistaken admission that I was providing my STBEX with health insurance when I wasn’t and had told her so repeatedly in the past. This may not have been a major error of law or material in nature at the end of the day, but caused me great anxiety and concern at the time, especially since it took a dozen calls, half a dozen voicemails, two text messages, three emails, 13 calendar days and a call to the Bar Association to get a hold of her regarding this mistake which she downplayed the importance of, in addition to a giving me a half-hearted attempt to answer my questions regarding the case’s strategy, next steps, timelines, etc. In the various attempts where I mentioned any of these communication concerns, I got no response at all.
All in all, the anxiety that this relationship caused me was unbearable and I sure wasn’t going to stick around and see if her legal acumen was better than her communication skills. I happily canned her and had another attorney working on my case. Retain at your own risk!
