Vanessa took over my case and tied up all my loose ends. My case settled and I am a happy person today.

Reviewed my divorce agreement, came up with a plan, filed an excellent complaint at fair cost, led to mediation with all issues resolved.
Fantastic effective legal work and advice.
Would highly reccomend this lawyer and her team.

Being from out of the state, I found Vanessa Nellis's law firm on Yelp, and decided to contact them for initial consultation of my past legal separation and proposed divorce case. I prepaid for my consult emailed many docs, and info before our telephone consultation. Although this turned into a referral, I received an immense amount of good legal advise in a very short conversation. I was very happy to pay for this, but in the end, my fee was waived. I will now do much of my own paperwork in a different direction that never occurred to me. Vanessa is a great communicator, and knows how to determine a practical course I think. I will be happy to retain her if the need arises.
