Engaged, Efficient, Empathetic, Enduring
Elaine is a very experienced family law attorney. She is much more than a lawyer and is adept in navigating through your personal crisis. An attentive listener that gets to core issues and drives to workable arrangements. The outcome can be a win win situation and Elaine strives to get to that solution set through various resources at her disposal. She stays engaged so the case does not languish. I made contact through a referral and I was very glad to have Elaine successfully represent me and make a case that was very durable!

A friend recommended E. V. Van Beveren to me
My attorney explained to me what was required of me and what would be required by my husband. She took the time to explain what the procedures of the court would be and she took excellent notes of my story and why I wished to use her for my attorney. Throughout my time spent with her and in court she continued to provide support to me during the divorce process. I have a great deal of respect for her and her staff not only for her legal work but for the sound advice she gave to me during the divorce procedures.

Counselor Van Beveren Brings Peace of Mind
Counselor Van Beveren was recommended to me by a close friend when I started my divorce. Every piece of guidance she's offered, and every action has brought me peace of mind. She's been there for me every step of the way, as I navigated the marriage dissolution process, and custody issues regarding my children. There's nobody else I'd want in my corner than Elaine. I have, and will continue to recommend her to anyone who needs assistance in the area of Family Law. There were times where it felt like she was literally the only person who had my back. If I could rate her more than five stars, I would.

Family law
Elaine is a caring, knowledgeable, reliable, and reputable attorney. Elaine & her wonderful staff, particularly paralegal Marilyn helped me through a very long and drawn out costly divorce. Through they're hard work I ultimately received a fair settlement. I would have been lost without them. My two previous attorneys didn't prioritize or cater to my special needs. I consider myself lucky to have found Elaine. I highly recommend Elaine to anyone in need of legal advice and service.

Excellent Service
Elaine Van Beveren and her Para-Legal Mariyln Strong provided efficient and effective first class services to complete a long pending divorce settlement. The case was straight forward with no conflicts, and Elaine dispatched the task efficiently and effectively without unnecessary charges or complications. Her fees were fair and forthright, and it was a pleasure to work with everyone in her office.

Very Good Lawyer
Elaine did a great job of explaining the law, and explaining the cost vs. reward of pursuing various claims. She will warn you if you are considering litigating an issue that you are likely to lose, or one that will cost more than the amount of money or property in dispute, and she will give you the pros and cons of everything as you go through the process. She also made sure I didn't fall into the trap of thinking that as a working dad, I couldn't manage having 50% custody of my two kids. Her guidance on this issue was worth more than any financial issue involved in the divorce. She also was able to deal well with my ex-wife's two attorneys, one of whom was an overzealous, colossal jerk. She was forceful when needed, but was able to work out details with the other side without having to wage an expensive courtroom battle -- especially important in my case, because I would have been forced to pay for my ex-wife's attorneys as well as for Elaine.
