      "Sam represented me in my divorce and I couldn't be more grateful for his services."

      Sam represented me in my divorce and I couldn't be more grateful for his services. I initially came to him feeling timid, scared, and hopeless. I let him know that my ex and I had a prenup and that he was trying to bully me out of "his house." Sam immediately applied his expertise and educated me on my rights. Despite my nervousness and fears, he encouraged me to file proper paperwork and protect myself before my ex could do anything against me. What's great about Sam is that he always thinks not 2, but 3 steps ahead. I felt like he looked after me as if I was a family member that he passionately wanted to protect. He is tough and aggressive in the best way possible which is exactly what I needed in guiding me out of a bad situation. I actually felt sorry for my ex's attorney because Sam pretty much ate her alive and we ultimately got a settlement that exceeded my expectations. He is worth every penny. Thank you Sam!

      "Sam is the man. He's upfront and doesn't BS you. He tells you what he will do and will act accordingly. He does everything in your best interest."

      Sam is the man. He's upfront and doesn't BS you. He tells you what he will do and will act accordingly. He does everything in your best interest. After a long hard battle, Sam got me the custody of my daughter after my ex took her away from me after we had an agreement. I would recommend anybody to Sam. He's worth every penny.

      "I would recommend him to anyone and would absolutely keep him in mind if I were to come across any other situations where I would need an attorney. Thank you for everything Sam and Monique!"

      Sam Godkin is great! I cannot thank him enough for helping me get through the custody battle I was faced with. I knew I was making the right decision when hiring him because he was upfront, realistic, and very confident from the first time we spoke until our success in gaining sole physical custody. He was reasonably priced, easy to contact whenever I had any questions, and always had the answer. Within minutes of him and I leaving the courtroom, he was asked for his business card. It was clear and recognizable to everyone that he had skill and years of experience. I would recommend him to anyone and would absolutely keep him in mind if I were to come across any other situations where I would need an attorney. Thank you for everything Sam and Monique!

      "We were unable to get 3 law firms to even reply to our calls let alone answer the phone. Vera not only answered our call on the recommendation of a friend but she went into great detail so we better understood all sides of the situation."

      We recently faced a situation that required a legal opinion as an ex spouse was posturing their plan to move out of state and take the kids. We were unable to get 3 law firms to even reply to our calls let alone answer the phone. Vera not only answered our call on the recommendation of a friend but she went into great detail so we better understood all sides of the situation. We agreed upon a game plan, we went through so many potential scenarios, and after the call my wife and I felt a great sense of relief. Super impressed by Vera and grateful for her support.

      I was put in contact with Vera for help getting a restraining order, and I couldn’t be happier with her services. She was so kind, knowledgeable, caring. She helped me out so much with not only the case, but the courage to take my life back. When it got dragged out to a full day of court, she was readily prepared and very professional. She clearly knew what she was doing and helped me get a permanent restraining order. I would definitely recommend her services and will call her whenever I need a lawyer next.

      "Her court demeanor is professional and pleasant; even the judge praised her for this prior to judgment, which by the way she was successful. I would use Vera again and highly recommend her."

      Vera was referred to me by another top lawyer in San Diego. We just finished a very complex restraining order trial with Vera being the prosecuting attorney. She is a perfect blend of compassionate and kind and focused and strategic. Her court demeanor is professional and pleasant; even the judge praised her for this prior to judgment, which by the way she was successful. I would use Vera again and highly recommend her.

      No one WANTS to need a divorce attorney but Vera made me SO GLAD to have her. She was calm and protective of me as her client and always made me confident that everything would be ok. The divorce was handled fast and fairly. What is most amazing is that she handled my ugly divorce nine years ago and I still think of her and how reliable and comforting she was to me. So much so that, when I had a friend with similar troubles, I called her again to connect them. Not only did she take the time to talk with my friend, she REMEMBERED me and wanted to know how I was doing. I cannot say enough good things about her!

      "Thankfully I contacted Godkin and Brengle LLC and where Mrs. Livingstone was able to help me prepare my subpoenas in time to file it that afternoon. It’s been signed off and I couldn’t have done it without her help."

      I needed assistance on submitting a couple subpoenas as recommended from my last child support hearing. However, when I attempted to get assistance filling out the paperworks required, the family law facilitators regretfully informed me that they were unable to help. I spent that morning and afternoon contacting several law firms inquiring about deposition officer but they all turned me away. Thankfully I contacted Godkin and Brengle LLC and where Mrs. Livingstone was able to help me prepare my subpoenas in time to file it that afternoon. It’s been signed off and I couldn’t have done it without her help.

      I was highly recommended Vera Livingstone for good reason. She was amazing, quick and efficient handling my child custody court case. Her location close to the courts, her knowledge of the court staff and processes was very valuable. My worries and stress quickly faded away once Livingstone & Associates accepted and were handling my case. I am very grateful to her for the final results and highly recommend her services.

      "Thanks to her, I have primary custody of my son. I chose Vera, because unlike most attorney's I've met, Vera seems to truly care."

      Vera has been my attorney for 4 years now, and has helped turn my custody case upside down. Thanks to her, I have primary custody of my son. I chose Vera, because unlike most attorney's I've met, Vera seems to truly care. She puts a lot of energy and time into her clients, and is truly focused on finding the best solution for not only her clients, but for the children stuck in the middle.
