Lucky I found her!!!!!!
Not sure where to start on this amazing lady! My ex told me she hired one of the best attorneys in Utah,. I had no clue, I used Google and called first attorney. It was Veronica. She schooled my exes first and then second attorney. She is fair, she is human,. She understands the stress we are going through scared to loss our children. When I first hired her I was only seeing my kids a couple hours a week, nothing I had done just part of the games. I left with nothing but my dog and my guitar. I was in the worst possible divorce you could think of. It took time but now I have joint legal and Physical and got my fair share of equity and personal property. Something I didn't even know I should get. I will never forget going to her office one evening to drop of payment and she was working and her baby was sitting on her desk. That's when I knew I found right person. She is ultra dedicated, she will not sugar coat and she is amazing in court. She has ethics and Confidence. She knows the judges and what they don't want to hear. I am forever grateful for this lady. Well respected, I have sent another couple to her and they got same results. She does not waste your money. She will tell you what is worth fighting for. Thank you Veronica and her firm, much respect,

One of the best lawyers
Two weeks before my divorce court, I hired Veronica, she worked fast in a short time and eventually got me more than I expected. Veronica is a fighter and during the hearing she's always spot on. Very pleased with the outcome

She has done awsome

Best Lawyer In the state, Hands down
Where do begin, this woman is so amazing. She's so compassionate and so involved with our case. She takes the time to explain everything to me. I would be lost without her. I can feel in my heart that veronica is in this full heartedly. my case is very difficult and rare from most but she is working her butt off to help get me custody of my daughter. If you want a lawyer who actually cares about you and case veronica is the one for you. She's not out to just make money and charge up fee's . She's actually here to help you and make things easier. I would recommended her to anyone. I've ever told her myself that I trust her with my life! She is truly ONE of kind. Veronica you're amazing and i could never thank you enough for everything you've done for us. Thank you thank you@ -Rily T

Excellent Attorney
Veronica K Mcdougal represented me during my recent divorce. I could not be more pleased with my results. First of all, I felt that my voice was heard through the court proceedings. Veronica was an excellent source of information as to how things may proceed and as to the best course of action. She was great to advise me, all the while being conscientious of my finances and her legal fees. She was so easy to work with, kind compassionate, appropriate, stated the facts in a direct and compelling fashion. I am very grateful she was able to get my divorce handled as quickly as she did and the results were everything I had hoped for. It was a difficult matter, with little to no cooperation from the other side. I am very grateful she was able to make this happen for me. I would highly recommend her to anyone needing legal assistance. She is a true professional and excellent at what she does.

I hired Veronica to do a difficult job of representing my case as a man in Utah to get custody of my daughter and a lot of research was required. Veronica was diligent and represented my case in the best light possible! I am very grateful for her service and I have custody of my daughter!

Poor Communication
It’s clear that she either needs a better secretary or have a handle on the people that she represents and set up times to follow up on cases or petitions that she’s working on. I’ve called for a couple weeks no with no return call from her, and sent emails to a lawyer in her office who helps her: NO RESPONSE. It’s been 40 days since our petition was filed per her law office and the state of Utah requires 21 days for the served party to respond. Why haven’t we heard anything from her ?? Anytime we call this older woman answers “Law Offices” with a baby in the background crying or other noises. And it’s always an excuse why she doesn’t call back... or can’t answer the phone. We are extremely disappointed that Veronica eluded to her willingness and vowed dedication to help my husband see his daughter (as are his rights). But this is just poor business dealings. Strange how those who have cases that won’t pay more than a few hours of work never hear from her but those who go to court or are big cases are giving her rave reviews. Not impressed. Don’t take cases you can’t give 100% to, Veronica. It’s not a difficult concept. $2,000 retainer means you work for me. Not on your time. Do not hire her if you have an issue that requires her attention but won’t give her a big payout.

We tried to end the whole court problem with her but literally my husband never got anything good, he is not a competent lawyer and he is not someone who will give you results. She threw the case and never struggled to get anything good.
Response from Veronica Mcdougal November 10, 2020
Unfortunately, I had to withdraw from your husband's case because he refused to provide the Court with the documentation he was ordered to provide. I can only help so much when the Court's orders are constantly being violated. I did keep him out of jail, despite his continued violations of the Court's orders.

Awful communication
So I found this attorney thru unbundled legal services. I met with her one time and she seemed fantasctic! Knowledgeable, caring, the whole nine yards. The thing with unbundled services is I am supposed to be able to hire her for specific services that I pay for (i.e. a 30 min consultation to go over paperwork and get advice ect. Is $75) or I could pay a retainer ($1500) to hire her. Great fees compared to most attorneys...yet, along with what several other people have said, she is next to impossible to get ahold of! I have spent months calling and leaving messages with the receptionist as well as sent her an email, thinking maybe I said something that caused her to not want to represent me or something....come to find out, she is just flaky like that apparently. Super disappointed because I was really excited after meeting with her as she seems more than competent in her field....also, the unbundled legal services refuses to refer me to another attorney. Don't even bother trying to use her as an attorney unless you want nothing done on your case or no communication.

I apologize that you were not able to get ahold of me. I haven't gotten any messages from a "Kasie" or from someone that I consulted with that I haven't returned.
