I am a client of veronica's and have to say, hiring her was a very good decision. Originally I was very skeptical of getting a lawyer and tried to work out our custody child plan without getting the courts involved. My ex was not being very cooperative and contacted the police for a verbal argument we had previously.
I then realize that I needed a lawyer and perhaps two, one to deal with my child custody and another to deal with the criminal matter (if needed). I knew that the main priority would be to handle the child custody matter first. I contacted a few family lawyers and went to one for a consultation. I told her my story (including a possible criminal case) and she referred me to Veronica because of her experience with the family and criminal court system.
After meeting Veronica, I was relieved that she can handle both of my matters and was very impressed with her knowledge and attitude towards my situation that I had. She listened to what I would like happen regarding my child and she was very cooperative and trustworthy. I followed her guidance through the whole matter and in result, have the child custody plan that I proposed and had the police matter be squashed without going into trial.
I would gladly hire Veronica for all other family matters that would arise and feel if it wasn't for her guidance and representation, I would be in worse situation regarding both matters.

When I hired Veronica, the high priced attorney who hadn't done a thing for me in eighteen months but stall and ring up unnecessary drama and legal fees had left my case because of my ex's termination. Stuck in the midst of a chaotic custody drama where domestic violence played a major role and with an upcoming motion, I didn't want to go to court pro se.
Recommended by a friend, I met with Veronica and immediately knew that she was the one to advocate for my children and me. Veronica always answers her own phone, her own emails and thankfully works harder than any attorney I've ever encountered.
My husband's attorney has always gotten away with her intimidation of me in the courtroom. The first time in court, Veronica realized what was going on and made a point to put an end to it and made me feel safe in the courtroom. She is powerful in her calm presence and has shut down my ex's attorney at each exchange. Veronica doesn’t play into the drama of frivolous legal tit for tat, and she’s not into drumming up additional legal costs either.
Veronica is fair, compassionate and tough. The safety and welfare of the children is very important to her and she works hard for their sake. I recommend her to every person I find out is going through a divorce. The best thing that ever happened to my case was my old attorney firing me as a client because he couldn’t accomplish in 18 months what Veronica has done in 4. I am blessed to have her as my attorney and the advocate for my children and me in the courtroom.

Veronica is one of the smartest and most effective attorneys I have ever faced in my 17+ years of practice. She is focused, effecient and always does a stellar job for her clients. I routinely refer people to her and, if I needed an attorney, she is the first person I'd go to.
