Elizabeth is as great as they come. She is an outstanding divorce lawyer. She is not only extremely gifted at her craft, she is a wonderful communicator and a strong advocate in the court room. She gives you her undivided attention, and she has been there for me as a client emotionally as well.
With that being said, she also is a straight shooter and is not going to feed you bs to make you feel better - she will let you know the truth about your case and will not sugar-coat promising you things that are not achievable. I have a highly contested case where the other side has made everything pretty much a living hell. If I did not have Elizabeth as my legal counsel, I would be lost. I have worked with other attorneys in prior proceedings, and they do not even come close to comparing to Elizabeth.
I know it's hard to choose a lawyer - but there is no doubt in my mind that Elizabeth is as best as they come for a divorce lawyer and she is the solid, right choice. She will keep you updated on your case and will work with you to achieve your goals of the case.
Thank you Elizabeth you have been a godsend to me and my children, and I could not ask for a better advocate for us!

Elizabeth was one of the most knowledgeable lawyers I have ever worked with. She was always on time she never left me feeling like I didn't know what was going on with my case . She always returned my phone calls when I had questions . Her assistants were always very helpful and knowledgable . If I ever needed a lawyer again for this type of situation I would definitely use her services.

I highly endorse Ms. Vonau. I have worked closely with Ms. Vonau since 2007. She is an excellent reputable criminal defense attorney that always obtains favorable results for her clients. She goes above and beyond to ensure her clients are content with the outcome of their cases.
