Amazing. Couldn't be happier!!!
I switched to Rozanna from another attorney. My only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. She is amazing, kept me in the loop the entire time, and got me the results I wanted. Thank you Rozanna.

One of the best decisions I have ever made
I called Rozanna during a time of great need and it ended up being one of the best decisions I have ever made. She represented me very professionally and effectively during my child custody case. Rozanna is a very intelligent and thorough attorney. She helped me focus on the most important aspects of the case and was very factual with me. She did not offer any false promises or guarantees; instead she offered fact-based optimism. She listened to what I had to say and was very understanding of my situation through every step of the process. I appreciated all of those things. Her expertise in the field of family law is phenomenal, and her experience is vast. Rozanna is a true professional who communicated very well with me throughout the entire process. I am very happy that she represented me and would ask her to represent me again without hesitation. Her staff is excellent. If you are ever in need of a family law attorney I highly recommend Rozanna.

I'd Give 10 Stars if I Could
I've had the pleasure of Korol & Velen's council for over a decade, and I can honestly say that Rozanna, Nydia, and the entire team are exceptional! They're incredibly knowledgeable, very direct, and honest. I've always felt they've had my best interest at heart and tried everything possible to keep costs as low as possible. I was incredibly pleased with the outcome of our latest hearing. You can't afford not to hire Rozanna and Team!

I highly recommend Rozanna!
Rozanna Velen came into my divorce 3 years in at a very difficult time. She was authentic, hard working, compassionate and one of the smartest lawyer I have met.. and I have met many. She finished my divorce when no one else could. She got us to mediation when I was told we’d have no choice but trial. Rozanna and her team are fair yet powerful and they do it gracefully. I couldn’t be more grateful that Rozanna came into my life at the perfect time. I would recommend Rozanna and her team over and over again.

Wonderful person, incredible attorney
I am very glad that I hired Rozanna as my divorce attorney. First of, she came highly recommended by my life long friend, that I enormously trust. I did not regret my decision for a minute. Rozanna made a very stressful situation much easier, she knew answers to all of my questions (and they were plenty), she was accessible at any time at for that I am so grateful to her. Let me tell you, when Rozanna speaks, people listen. And by people I mean opposing attorneys.

Finally some actual help!
Can't sing enough praise for the incredible honesty, efficiency and expertise of Rozanna & co. My case was long and difficult, with an unreasonable or non-engaging spouse (depending on the day). With 2 previous lawyers (and a few consulting) I had gone though a few years of useless "mediation" madness, and ridiculous expense. Desperate, I asked around for someone to get the job done, and gratefully, a friend recommended Rozanna. Night and day! She gets the facts she needs from you, gets off the phone and goes to work. She guided me to an amazing resolution, with great strategies and a fraction of my previous costs. She refuses to just "run up your bill" -- which is what I experienced with everyone else. She's no-nonsense, gets to the point, and is frighteningly smart, with deep drawers of experience. Best of all, rather than assuring me that she "really cared me" or would "fight for me" (as the others seemed fond of doing), she simply, quietly, and elegantly just did it. Most importantly, she got me a great settlement -- far beyond what my previous lawyer said was possible. Thank you Rozanna. You're a God send!

Excellent
Rozanna Velen is an excellent family law attorney. Look at her retainer as a long term investment-you pay a bit now, but save a bunch in the long run. Rozanna will give the facts and law to you straight, and let you know your options and risks. There are not many attorneys who will tell you to take a route that will make her less money...but that's how much of a straight shooter she is. I've sent dozens of people over to Rozanna. She is a respected professional in the legal community. She has obtained excellent results for myself, my friends and associates- including someone who originally (before retaining Rozanna) agreed to pay their spouse $80k...but after hiring Rozanna my friend RECEIVED $80k from their spouse. (Don't try to do a divorce alone if you have assets.) Some family attorneys are sleazebags who wring every drop of $ out of their client, bully, yell and scream at opposing parties, and don't care about the welfare of the child or adults involved. Rozanna is the opposite. She's got a good grasp on keeping things calm, and she focuses on the best interest of the child and other humans in the family matter. Hire Rozanna Velen.

Exceptional Attorney
Rozanna is an extraordinary family law attorney - one of the best! I hired her a year and a half ago and I couldn't be happier. What I like most about Rozanna is her direct approach and her willingness to keep things in perspective. She places me in a winning strategy and she gets me the results I deserve. She is also one of only a few honest attorney's whose sole mission is to HELP YOU rather than fatten their pocketbooks. Believe me, she will do everything she can to help you. Hiring Rozanna was one of the best decisions I have ever made in my life.

Excellent Divorce Attorney
My divorce from my ex-wife should not have been a complicated one, but my ex-wife and her super lawyer wanted to make it a long, drawn out and costly experience. I needed to find the right attorney to help me get divorced who was strategic, focused, ethical, responsive, thoughtful and would keep legal fees to only what was necessary. After an in depth search I found “the right” attorney in Rozanna Velen. Hiring Rozanna was the best decision. Within 4 months of hiring Rozanna she pushed through the endless walls of delays and negotiated and procured a 50/50 legal and physical custody agreement and then helped me along that way to close out and finalize my divorce. Rozanna is highly intelligent, experienced, calm, strategic, responsive, ethical, focused and determined. I highly recommend Rozanna Velen.

Rozanna is incredible!
Rozanna and her team are incredible. Rozanna embodies the perfect balance of aggression and compassion. Her intelligence, legal expertise, and vigor guided me through my extremely complex and unique divorce in the best possible way. While working with the firm, I felt very safe, confident in my case, and cared for. They really do exemplify their slogan: "personal attention and dedication to your case." They go above and beyond to ensure that their clients (and their children) are taken care of. I am truly blessed to have been referred to Rozanna and I could not have asked for a better family law firm. I am forever grateful to the Law Offices of Korol and Velen for everything they have done for me.

Rozanna Rules
What I'll say about Rozanna Velen is that she doesn't waste words or time. This makes her very efficient which saves you money on her fees if you are prepared when you see her. She clearly knows California family law inside and out and is a no-nonsense negotiator. I really wish that my ex had agreed to mediation from the start but instead she decided to lawyer up. My defensive instincts told me to find a real shark to represent me and that's exactly what I found in Rozanna. Divorce is a no-win situation but Korol & Velen will help you cut your losses and move on. Their paralegals and office staff were professional, friendly, and very helpful.

Best. Decision. Ever.
Filing for divorce was the best decision I ever made, hiring Rozanna was a close second. What I had hoped would be a relatively easy process turned into a nightmare that lasted the better part of two years. While my ex burned through 6 (yes, 6!) lawyers, I gave thanks every day that my first choice for a lawyer was the only one I would ever have. Rozanna was unbelievably professional. She was always available to answer my multitude of questions and concerns, and it was rare for a day to go by that she wouldn't call or email to keep me informed of everything. Unlike other attorneys who look to create conflict, Rozanna was focused always on trying to find common ground and to take a non-adversarial approach. Above all, she and her team were my friends and partners, always looking out for my best interests, helping me through the rough emotional patches, and listening to what I wanted and needed. Divorce is never fun, but I have zero regrets in choosing Rozanna and give her my highest recommendation to anyone thinking about going down that path.

Amazing!
It is with the highest recommendation, extreme gratitude and thanks that I write this review for Rozanna Velen. There are no words sufficient enough to express her outstanding efforts on my behalf. For the past 2 years, Rozanna has skillfully navigated, negotiated and obtained the best possible results in finalizing my very difficult divorce and custody agreement. She is a Master at what she does, is absolutely amazing and is rated one of the Top Family Law Attorneys in Los Angeles. She is direct, sharp and no-nonsense. Her knowledge of family law is endless, her strategies are right on target and her commitment to finding the best possible results for everyone involved are to be admired. THE BEST PART is that she REALLY cares about her clients. To say that Rozanna went over and above the call of duty for me is an understatement. Her patience, support, encouragement and guidance are what got me through an extremely difficult time when my outcome looked very dim. Despite the circumstances, she never gave up on me when many attorneys would have moved on to other clients. If you are looking for a dedicated family law attorney who will go the extra mile and get results, you need look no further than Rozanna.

Rozanna is a Fantastic Divorce Attorney!
Rozanna did a fantastic job representing my interests in a recent divorce. I am extremely grateful to have had Rozanna representing me in my divorce, as well as Rozanna's entire team. Rozanna was extremely aggressive and creative in finding equitable solutions to dividing assets and liabilities. Every single person on Rozanna's team, including her associate attorney, paralegals and office manager were highly responsive, professional and energetic in all of my dealings with them. I always felt like her entire team were completely knowable about my case, and all were on board to assist in finalizing my divorce . I was able to settle within 1 year of filing for divorce which was highly efficient and which was a goal for me in order to mitigate legal costs and spousal support to the extent possible. I believe that the legal cost of my divorce was a well spent investment to ensure the best possible outcome for my future.

Review of Rozanna Velen
Rozanna took over my divorce case after her partner, whom I had worked with the first year of my case, fell ill. It was a seamless transition. I felt as comfortable with Rozanna as has with her partner, Marina and she was very professional and knowledgeable. She is known and respected in the court room, made sure I was completely prepared for court and won an excellent settlement for me in my divorce. I would highly recommend her services, and the excellent legal team that she has in the office for any divorce case. They were all very knowledgeable about case law, were accessible via email or phone whenever I needed to ask questions or get advice and supportive to me in dealing with an unwanted divorce in a long term marriage.

Couldn't have chosen a better attorney, Thank you Rozanna
At a time when I should have felt the most alone and confused, Rozanna provided me with the support and peace of mind to help me move forward. Rozanna always made me feel heard and understood. She supported me and my goals throughout my matter and was unwavering in her commitment to represent me zealously. She continuously communicated with me and updated me regarding my matter. She encouraged me to take my time thinking over how I wanted my case to resolve. She never rushed me to make any decisions and was always available to answer my questions and guide me throughout this process. Her brilliance, her commitment to her practice, and her authenticity and genuine care for her clients makes her a one-of-a-kind Attorney. Not only would I have been completely lost without her help and representation, in the end, Rozanna was able to achieve my goals by resolving the matter in my favor. I couldn't have moved forward with my life without her expertise. I highly recommend Rozanna.
