Valerie is very professional and knowledgeable. She is also very personable and caring.
My experience collaborating on projects with Val predates her launch of her own firm. On the multiple occasions we worked together, Val did superb work -- her attention to detail is excellent and her view of the big picture is comprehensive. Beyond her strong work, though, Val is an absolute pleasure to work with. There is nobody I'd recommend before her, and hope to send her referrals as soon as I get any!
Mine was a divorce because of domestic abuse. Valerie negotiated with my former husband's attorney to get my former husband to accept a 3-year stay-away order without my having to testify in court! It was an achievement I hadn't expected but was extremely grateful for. It truly saved me a lot of anxiety. On the other hand, Valerie needs to acknowledge that older people have more life experience than she does and are frequently more experienced in human behavior, especially their spouse's behavior and thinking processes.
Valerie quite literally saved my life. She fought tirelessly to ensure that I had all of the protections that the law provided. She fought to ensure I could stay in my home as my ex fought to take it away from me. Valerie ensured I was protected from my ex and ensured I kept a bit of my sanity. I wouldn't wish a contentious divorce on anyone. But, if you do have to face this, make sure you have Valerie in your corner!
I had gone through a lot of painful emotions during our seperation. Valerie was there to help me! My Husband moved out without a word, abandoned me and our two children for 6 months without any visits or financial support. Valerie is very knowledgeable in family law. She filed a motion for me, she fought very hard for the child support and my kids' sole custody. She is very good at following up. My native language is not english so my words are not enough to describe how helpful she was when i experienced the most difficult time of my life. All i can say is, she is worth my trust.
Valerie is my go-to attorney for tough family law questions and referrals! She truly cares about her clients, does great work and has a solid reputation in the community. Highly endorse.
I have consulted with Valerie on issues our clients face and she is the type of lawyer I wish I would have if I were in this situation. She is assertive, honest, and kind. She leads a fabulous and experienced team and you can rest assured they will advocate for you.
This review is long over due but better late than never. During my consultation, I immediately knew that I wanted to hire Valerie Fenchel to handle my divorce case. Not only is she extremely professional but she also has a wonderful personality which is a rare combination of traits to have! She was very informative throughout the entire case from beginning to end! Highly recommended!
