I prayed for the best and I received the best. Vera represented me and my two teenage sons in a very mean spirited divorce. She treated us as though we were a part of her family.
Finishing up with the day and a half trial yesterday, I can only say she was perfect in representing us. I would NOT CHANGE one thing about how she presented our case and fought for our case.
Vera was microscopically thorough and always on point. She had TOTAL RECALL OF EVERY WORD SPOKEN AND THE PERSON THAT SPOKE IT.
She was invincible. She was unconquerable. She was ALWAYS respectful of the Court and of the Judge.
Vera surrounds herself with a staff of brilliant minds, that work tirelessly for their client's rights, and their needs. They NEVER let me feel like I was alone in my protection of my sons.
Thank you, Vera and staff, for giving my sons, and me, all NEW BEGINNINGS.
I PRAY GOD'S RICHEST BLESSINGS TO YOU ALL.

Vera, represented me in a very lengthy straight out of a lifetime movie of a custody case. She was responsive and compassionate driven and thorough. As a father who had made an attempt at representing himself we were behind the eight ball from the start Vera never gave up and always kept me informed as to my options. Not only was she my counsel but she also worked with my family understand what was going on and what the expected outcome should be. I would recommend Vera to anyone
