I hired Vanessa to assist me with a modification to my existing parenting plan due to relocation. Vanessa and her team were efficient and quick. They helped me negotiate terms with my ex-husband and ultimately helped me be able to relocate out of state with my 2 boys while keeping a fair parenting plan. Everyone in the office was helpful and kind. I was able to amicably work out terms with my ex thanks to the guidance and care the office took with my case. I highly recommend Vanessa to anyone who needs a family attorney.
I’ve had the privilege of working with Vanessa before. She helped my daughter and me at a time when we most needed it. She made it possible for me to obtain full custody of my daughter and ensure her safety and well-being. I am forever grateful and indebted to her. If Vanessa needs anything I hope that she knows that I won’t hesitate to run to her aid, even after many years. If anyone needs a good and experienced family lawyer with a big heart, I have and will continue to refer them to Vanessa!
Not only is Vanessa extremely knowledgeable, but she truly does care, she is passionate about her work and that really shines through as she will always give 100% in everything she does. If you are looking for a lawyer, there is no better option than Vasquez de Lara Law Group

Handling your divorce case or custody dispute on your own is not easy without an attorney. It’s also not the best choice. Family court is very procedural. You may have all it takes to win your case, but just filing something wrong can cause huge delays and increase the chances that you lose in court. Review your case for free today.
