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!
