Valerie Ross is the worst attorney I have ever used. She did not keep me informed of court dates, she did not return phone calls, and she repeatedly lied to the court to cover up her incompetence. She spoke to opposing counsel about privileged matters and she is completely useless in court. Her knowledge of the law is astonishingly absent and she has to look up the answer to even the simplest questions she is asked. She could not remember most of the facts in my case and the judges got very irritated with her being unable to respond or having to dig through mounds of paperwork. I don't know how she ever passed the bar exam and I honestly feel her license to practice should be revoked. Hire her at your own risk and if she is appointed to represent you then request another attorney! I gave her one star only because no stars was not an option.

Valerie Ross, would never call me back until the day before a court hearing or the day before evidence was to be submitted to the court on my behalf. I learned that Valerie Ross also missed the deadline to submit my evidence of my behalf and other answers and pleading on time on my CPS case. Valerie Ross, botched up my case and caused me to lose custody of my children in August 2015. Valerie Ross failed to communicate with me in a timely manner and her lack of her profession has caused me a great deal of stress and distress. I have been denied my right to due process and the right to a fair trial, because of Valerie Ross whom has stated to me that she submitted documentary evidence that would clearly clear me of all false allegation that CFS had filed against me, but the county counsel and the judge in August 2015 told her "NO" it’s too late to submit anything on my behalf during the contested hearing, she tried to submit documents on the day of the hearing "She laid to me". I hired Valerie Ross, as my attorney and I was not allowed to say anything while my children father and his court appointed attorney was allowed to speak out of term and other county counsel member's in the court room, while Valerie Ross, set there saying nothing on my behalf at all. I knew at this point something was wrong, but I just prayed that this was all in my mind and that I just couldn't hear or understand the legal jargon, but it wasn't and my life was over. I knew that I had submitted everything to Valerie Ross, all of my evidence I gave to her in May 2015, and after paying Valerie Ross in full, before she would even take my case for $5,000.00 in Cash. The Judge gave her until July 2015 to submit all subpoena witnesses on my behalf, and I had 5 subpoena, but only one showed up. I believed that Valerie Ross would submit documentary evidence that would clearly clear me of all false allegation that CPS had falsely filed against me, in order to take my guardianship children and place them in foster care, and even after the children begged to come home, she ruined my life. On September 2015, I fired Valerie Ross, but it was to late at this point, she appeared to be working with the CPS against me a conspiracy to convict me, so after dismissing her I was ordered to return to court in September 2015, and the Judge, did not and would not allow me to say anything, but she did say “Are you dismissing Valerie Ross, she cut me off not allowing me to state that she has misrepresented me and has been nothing but ineffective assistance of counsel on my behalf since the beginning of this trial. I encourage anyone who has had this same type of experience to report her to the State Bar of California. After reading most of Valerie Ross reviews they sound more and more like the Ineffective Counsel, I hired on such a really important and serious case. My life and my family have been destroyed because of Valerie Ross.

3 years ago I took on Vallery Ross as my divorce attorney she sounded very knowledgeable and very thorough in her job but after 3 years and many promises that where made by both by her paralegal MS Ross herself told me that I would have no problem getting my attorney fees and spousal support. Well finally went to court and needless to say I was very disappointed my attorney was not well prepared she did not object to certain things that she should of said something she just set there and then when the judge asked her a question she was stumbling around trying to provide them with an answer she really was not well prepared for my case it was a simple divorce case with a few wrinkles as would be expected but I never thought I would walk away feeling the way I do about the justice system which right now is not a good opinion it's not because things did not go my way its the old saying you get what you paid and in this case I believe I lost a lot I had an attorney that was not competent in her job and that is my personal opinion I would not recommend her even though she offers you reasonable prices but at the end result they left me hanging so don't let first impressions fool you do your homework well and really think thoroughly before you allow an attorney like this to have your life in our hands you won't be happy and yes shame on me for not doing my homework and finding out that this attorney Valerie Ross does not represent you to the best of her abilities despite what they say I did not get my attorney fees back like they said I would and I receive alimony amount that wouldn't even make the car payment now is that the kind of attorney you want fighting for you I think not I hope whoever reads this we're really put some thought into what I'm saying and will do their homework cuz nobody needs to go through 3 years of back and forth when in reality ever court did their job and our attorneys follow their procedures and did her job as well this shouldn't have taken that long.
