Here is What They are Saying:
“I highly recommend Valerie as a Family Law Specialist. She has incredible knowledge of the law, she is great at strategic planning, she is highly intelligent and very trust worthy. We felt that she did a superb job of representing us. She would be great as a mediator as she is very easy to work with and would be ideally suited to work with both sides.” – Sheila Martinez
“Valerie is an experienced family law attorney who knows the law and who has helped many couples through the mediation process. Family law is a complex area. Valerie is well-versed in the law and her mediation agreements reflect this. She is easy to work with, kind and patient. I recommend her highly.” – Rebecca T.
“Val Tarvin has been amazing. If it weren’t for her wisdom, my divorce would have been totally different. Here’s how she helped: I found out about Val after we had chosen a different mediator. Then it became clear to me that I needed an attorney on the side to guide me and coach me through the process. Val was my ace in the hole. Her coaching saved me tens of thousands per year for the rest of my life. She prepped me for every meeting. She gave me case law to support my arguments. She told me this would be the biggest sales job I ever needed to do. Because of her help, I was able to sell my argument and win. I’m referring any friends who are going through a divorce to her. Val is your ace in the hole!” – T.B.
“I refer all my clients in need of mediation or family law representation. Valerie is extremely knowledgeable and understands all issues including the most complex issues. She is great at mediating and helping clients avoid costly divorce proceedings by successfully assisting the partiess to understand the issues so they can resolve those issues and obtain a successful mediated divorce. One of my referred clients just completed a mediation with Valerie and they were extremely satisfied with her assistance, compassion, understanding, knowledge and the resolution of all issues. In a short time the divorce was completed. I highly recommend her.” – Kenn Ellner
“I’ve worked with Val on many cases and have always found her to be incredibly knowledgeable, reasonable, and a strong advocate for her clients. She is also truly gifted as a mediator. I highly recommend her.” – Ann Wise
