  • She and her team displayed the utmost professionalism while supporting me and my emotional roller coaster with empathy and encouragement.
    Those who've experienced a contentious divorce are familiar with the range and intensity of emotions and the challenges of litigation. Repeatedly targeted by an angry ex whose legal bills are paid by her parents, what I sought most in an attorney was knowledge and experience and the confidence that he/she 1) understood my case, 2) cared about my case, 3) had the time to devote to my case, and 4) would always have my back. At the end of my first meeting with Valerie, I knew she and her experienced team would meet these criteria. Valerie would not allow herself to be baited by the unprofessional and antagonistic aggression of my ex's attorney and instead kept me and her team focused on my legal objective, helping me pursue a thoughtful strategy that succeeded in extracting my son from a damaging school environment. All the while, she and her team displayed the utmost professionalism while supporting me and my emotional roller coaster with empathy and encouragement. My advice to those unfortunate enough to require the services of a divorce attorney: Don't be swept up by lawyers offering the ego satisfaction (but financial depletion) of an ongoing battle in which, truly, everyone loses. Instead, hire Valerie and her team to dispassionately help you develop the right strategy and make the right decisions to achieve your goal.

  • Smart and passionate but not pushy.

    Valerie did all the right things during my divorce process. She understands all aspects of a divorce and treats them in a holistic fashion. Smart and passionate but not pushy.

  • She was both professional and understanding guiding me through all of my options.
    Valerie offered fantastic advice and helped me fully understand the risks associated with my legal matters. She was both professional and understanding guiding me through all of my options. I hope I don’t have to go through any more legal issues, but if I do Valerie will be my first option.

  • She is patient, extremely responsive, attentive, and smart.
    Valerie Fenchel is an outstanding family law attorney. She is exactly the type of person to contact if you’re going through a separation or divorce, or need help with child custody. She is patient, extremely responsive, attentive, and smart. She cares about her clients and is willing to fight for them. I highly recommend her law firm.

  • Valerie quite literally saved my life.
    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!

  • The team at Fenchel Family Law has helped me to regain a peace of mind.

    If there is someone who is stalking you and/or trampling over healthy boundaries, I encourage you to lift your chin up and to build your support team. The team at Fenchel Family Law has helped me to regain a peace of mind, after walking me through a difficult process. They helped me to realize that this was a challenge to my personal safety. Though was grateful the judge could see my need and granted a TRO, was even more grateful to have Lisa and Sharon’s support to wade through “due-process” with delays in the months that followed.

    Lisa and Sharon (and even Valerie) remained professional even when the respondent was not, and advocated for me to effectively secure settlement for a RO (avoiding trial). Yes, I am on the Team FFL fan club!

  • Valerie was there to help me!
    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.

  • She was available throughout to answer questions and offer advice.
    Valerie is professional, responsive and above all personable and easy to get along with. She took the time to help me thoroughly understand some confusing legalese during my divorce and helped me navigate the whole ordeal to a fair and agreeable outcome. She was available throughout to answer questions and offer advice. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!

  • Her attention to detail is excellent and her view of the big picture is comprehensive.
    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!
