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.

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.
