Vanessa Gorden is an outstanding lawyer and I really enjoyed working with her. She made things easy to understand and set a reasonable timetable on what to expect. She was professional and helped me to reach a fair deal in regards to custody and child support with my ex spouse. I have already referred her to two other people and will be the first name I give when anyone needs legal advice. Any questions I had were answered quickly and she utilizes e-mail for faster and cheaper responses. Anyone who needs a guide through the tumultuous ordeal of divorce should look no further.

The first time I hired Vanessa Gorden, in 2010, it was to handle my divorce / child custody case, and I simply cannot say enough good about things about her. Succinctly put, she was amazing, start to finish. I was so impressed with her services that, two years later, when I needed to go to court again in order to adjust child support and visitation, I immediately went to her to handle that case as well. I didn't want anyone else.
One of the biggest things that sets Vanessa Gorden apart, I think, is the balance she's able to maintain between perfect professionalism and personal rapport. At our first meeting, her manner put me at ease right away. She made me feel completely comfortable and--more important--completely SAFE, both in the sense that I was able to let my guard down about certain sensitive details regarding my situation and in that I never, from that first meeting on, experienced even a single, isolated moment of doubt as to whether my children's and my interests would be 100% protected under the law.
The second time I went to Ms. Gorden for help, I found her services to be consistent with my experiences the first time she had agreed to work with me. In both cases, she tailored virtually every step of the process to fit my personal needs and legal goals, whether it concerned her fee, our meetings, court scheduling, or even the specific wording of the documents to be sent to the opposing party. She had a way of making me feel completely taken care of and yet completely in control throughout the entire process (a quality which the control freak in me fully appreciated!)
Vanessa Gorden made it possible for my children and me to reclaim our lives. We needed a tiger to take our place on the front line, and she leaped into that role with focused fervor. I absolutely and unhesitatingly recommend her services.
