Valerie helped me settle my highly contested custody/relocation case. She battled tirelessly to help me and my young child. She is extremely knowledgeable and very articulate. Valerie kept me calm during high stress, coached me through the process, and always provided a sense of urgency to my case. I never felt she was too busy to answer my calls or questions. She and her staff truly care about clients and it shows. I learned a lot from Valerie and I highly recommend her to anyone needing a smart, caring and respected attorney.
