Best Attorney
Vanessa is the best hands down. I was so worried and full of anxiety during the whole process. Vanessa and her staff are amazing. Kassidy answered every question and concern I had. I highly recommend her as an attorney!

Brought my daughters back together
My wife and I recently married and were having difficulties with my ex allowing my 17 year old to come to the wedding and be a part of all of the festivities. We had so many plans for her to see family that she had not seen in quite a long time and most importantly to see her older sister that she had not seen in many many years. Vanessa and her team made this happen for us despite numerous challenges that came up. They never gave up and genuinely cared and listened to our issues.

Greatest attorney ever!
I have had to hire Mrs. Winkler-Price for a number of civil and legal matters and she has always come through with perfect results! I will never call anyone else, if I need an attorney I know who to call and you should too!

The best attorney around!
Vanessa is the best attorney in the area! She has been my attorney for almost 7 years for custody problems and I have never been unhappy with the outcome of my case! She has been very thorough, and made sure to keep my child out of situations that he didn’t need to be in. She definitely fights for you!

Excellent Lawyer
Vanessa was very knowledgeable and helpful. She also worked quickly on my case. Kassidy was great too. I needed a letter to verify information for closing on a house and she got it to me within 24 hours at no charge. I 100% recommend Vanessa to anyone needing legal advice or help with a case.

Amazing Attorney
There aren't enough words to describe how amazing the experience with this firm was. Vanessa and her team work very hard to make sure you have the best experience and also gain the best results. From the moment I first called until my case was over, I was at ease that I had made the right choice. Thank you again Vanessa!

Compassionate, listens, experienced, gets the job done.
When I first consulted w/ Vanessa, it was 2 months before filing, she listened, was compassionate, and advised me on what to do before even hiring her. She knew I was scared but she was calming and reassuring. Throughout our case, during stressful times, she makes me feel like she's got my back. That is priceless.

Truly Grateful
Our family is truly grateful for the expertise and personal attention we received from Vanessa Winkler Price. She helped our family on several occasions with custody issues. In the midst of emotional and time sensitive circumstances she did not disappoint. We heartily recommend Ms. Vanessa Winkler Price!

Really good work
Vanessa helped a friend with a DUI several years ago. He told me how she almost made the cop cry on the stand due to his complete lack of following protocol. The judge even scolded him after Vanessa was finished. The case was dismissed and to say he was ecstatic is an understatement. Based on this, I contacted her a few months ago when I had a very intricate custody issue that involved multiple jurisdictions. She did some research and then helped me get the order worded the exact way I wanted it and worked the system flawlessly to make it happen. The next time I need anything I will definitely call her.

Good in my book
I walked into her office in need of representation for speeding and no insurance. I dealt with the lady in the office up until I officially went to court for this matter. I have CDLs’, so I was worried that she wouldn’t follow through as needed due to not meeting her personally. lol, I didn’t know if she actually existed. However; she showed up to court and showed out. She was extremely dedicated to each clients situation. Everything was dismissed and removed from my record. Money well spent!!!

Best attorney
Vanessa is a highly trusted professional who works hard for her clients and does it with care and concern for them and their families. Family court is a very emotional experience and Vanessa has represented me in family matters related to custody and support, and received the best possible outcome. She has helped counsel me along the way in making tough decisions. She is extremely professional, as is her paralegal Kassidy. I wouldn't work with anyone else.

Great Attorney!
Vanessa has represented me on a few legal matters. I have always felt that Vanessa goes above and beyond to ensure my best interest was first and foremost. The entire staff in the office is knowledgable and friendly and all worked together to fulfill my legal needs. Their hours did not stop at 5 pm. Kassidy worked endlessly communicating with me throughout the entire process. If I had a question after hours, I knew she would try her best to answer as soon as possible. Highly recommend Vanessa and her staff!

Excellent results!
I am so glad that I hired Ms. Price. Her team was very responsive and answered my million questions with patience. She was able to stand up for my needs when I was being too nice. My final divorce decree was everything that I had hoped for and more and I have her to thank for advising me so well. She made a scary experience much easier.
