Veronica R. Norgaard, Family Law Expert

“I’d just like to take a moment to thank Veronica Norgaard for her OUTSTANDING work she did in my very complicated divorce (we had 3rd party defendants).Veronica truly went over, above and beyond for me (e.g. answering e-mails in the middle of the night, always returning/picking up my calls, knowing my case inside and out, answering all of my questions and making me comfortable when I wasn’t). She not only met my expectations, she, by far, exceeded them. I will forever be grateful to her, and HIGHLY recommend her to anyone who finds themselves in the same position. Thank you again, Veronica. Truly.”
