About Vanessa

Learn Vanessa’s areas of practice.

     I am a family law attorney that helps clients in Minnesota navigate the next step forward in their divorce, custody, paternity, support, harassment (HRO) or domestic violence (OFP) case. I help clients figure out their goals and what would work best for their family within the context of the family law system. I then guide clients in implementing those goals so they can move forward in their lives. I understand how difficult (financially, emotionally, and sometimes even physically) this process can be. I take care of the papers and letters and phone calls that come along with the process so you can focus on moving forward.

     I believe that the family law system gives families unique ways to solve their problems whether they are able to do it through the help of neutrals (such as mediators, social and financial early neutral evaluations or parenting consultants) or if they need the help of judges to make decisions.  My experience with each of these tools means that I can help guide you through which ever process works best for you and your family.  Call to set up a complementary consultation today!

I worked Vanessa Rybicka on a very difficult child custody/child support matter. She was very thorough in all aspects of my case. She made a difficult situation very easy to understand and fought for my little girl. She was completely invested in the process and made me feel as if I was the most important client. Any parent that is dealing with matters concerning their children know and understand the amount of stress and pressure it can cause when you are making decisions about your child's safety. Vanessa Rybicka heard my daughters plea and gave her a voice to the courts that they could not be ignored. Although the entire process took a year, Vanessa was there every step of the way. Our entire family is grateful for the outcome of our case. Thanks to the council of Vanessa Rybicka my daughter is safe and thriving, in an environment of peace and love. We can't thank her enough!

I'd give 5 stars but she didn't have mother theresa present at all my hearings
Drags on what should be cases and lines her pockets. Supports clients in hiding assets. *red flag* Makes defamatory and fraudulent claims. *red flag* Is very disrespectful to opposing party.
