Highly recommend Holly Verde
Holly took my case after my husband filed for a divorce. She has maintained prompt and detailed communication about all legal matters during the entire process. I truly can tell she cares about her clients and the outcome in cases. The entire team at Verde Law has been so supportive. Not only with the legal matters, but with emotional support as well. Divorce is such a hard thing to go through, they work diligently to walk you through every step along the way. I felt better knowing they are looking out for my best interests. I highly recommend Verde Law to anyone in search of honest legal assistance.

My Hero
I hired Holly to help me with custody issues with someone who was very hard to deal with and she did a fantastic job. She is open and honest and commits to you and your children when she represents you. I would only recommend Holly Verde when it comes to a legal matter and I will only go to Holly Verde for any potential needs. She's a real life Hero.

Great Experience
Holly was very professional I live out of state and never had to go back to finish my divorce. She did exactly what she said she was going to. She made the experience as pleasant as could be and her secretary was very helpful and pleasant to deal with

Excellent Attorney!
Holly Verde is an excellent attorney! She immediately took action on some very time sensitive information needed for my divorce case. She was very professional, compassionate, knows the court system well and I would highly recommend her to everyone!

Excellent Attorney
Holly was wonderful to work with. She responded quickly to each email/call, was direct and to the point with her responses, and made a difficult situation easier to get through. I appreciated that she worked to keep things simple but knew right when to take those extra steps necessary to keep the proceedings moving forward. She moved quickly to do what was necessary to protect me from unfortunate situations and I consistently felt like she would do whatever it took to ensure the best outcome for me. Her assistant Susan is wonderful, very friendly and so helpful as well. I am thankful to have worked with Holly and Susan and appreciate all they did for me to get through my divorce quickly.

Life saver
Hello, I’m Kevin T. I hired Holly Verde for a very difficult divorce and custody battle. Before retaining Holly, I made clear that she’d be representing not only me, but my daughter. I expected professional, expert legal advice that I wouldn’t be afraid to answer questions about with my daughter later in life. Holly Verde helped stabilize a situation that was deteriorating quickly. My expectations were different than most, I am and was proud to have Holly and her team on my side. Specifically Susan, whom I have tremendous respect for. I’ve recommended Holly many times over, she’ll always be my lawyer as long as she’s practicing.

Kind, Professional and Caring
I hired Attorney Holly Verde for my divorce and couldn't be happier with the way she handled it. She was prepared for each court date and her honest approach was refreshing. She is not your stereotypical attorney, but don't let that fool you. She was very tenacious and fought for me and my needs. Thank you to you and your staff for helping me through that trying time of my life.

Excellent divorce attorney
Holly made the divorce process as quick and painless as possible. She is very knowledgeable, professional, and concise; she didn't waste my time or money on frivolous matters. I wouldn't hesitate to highly recommend her services.

Highly recommend Verde Law!
To whom it may concern, My name is Steven E. I would highly recommend the law offices of Holly Verde And Associates. Over the years Holly has been very beneficial to me. Not only has she gotten results, but she was very efficient. Previous lawyers seemed only interested in fees and nit so much favorable results, while dragging things out. If you decide on Verde Law, I'm sure you will come to value Holly as much as I do. Sincerely, Steve E.

Excellent lawyer handling my divorce
Holly did an excellent job handling my divorce. She was knowledgable and efficient. She was also kind and sympathetic through the process. The final bill was very close to what she quoted me at the free first consultation. I would definitely recommend Holly Verde as a great divorce lawyer!

Great Lawyer
Had to hire a lawyer for my custody battle, after searching around and not sure who to pick a friend recommended this firm to me. They were very helpful and were not over priced like some of the other firms I looked at. Overall I am very happy with this firm and would recommend them to anybody that is having a custody dispute.

EXCELLENT ATTORNEY! Great job in 2 cases for me! I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND Attorney Verde~!
Holly Verde represented me in two very different cases. First, she was my attorney in a contentious property rights case on Lake Michigan. She fought like a champ for me! I was so impressed that I hired her for my divorce. Again, I felt so relieved to have a person who would fight so hard for me. If you want someone to forcefully, aggressively and successfully fight for you, Holly Verde is the one!
