Vanessa joined FVF in 2019 as a contract paralegal and became an official, full-time FVF-er in August 2020. She graduated with a bachelor’s degree in International Business with a minor in Spanish and a Master’s degree in Legal Studies from Texas State University. Go Bobcats! She is a seasoned paralegal with over 16 years of experience. Working from home has been a blessing as she and her husband have 2 young boys who keep her busy. Vanessa has a big extended family and enjoys spending as much time as she can with them when she travels from Montgomery (where she calls home) back to the Austin area. You can catch her most weekends glamping, at the beach, swimming, or at her sons’ sports activities. She loves being a part of FVF because it feels like a family.
A special message to the friends and potential new clients of FVF Law:
FVF’s client contract has, for a long time, contained the following termination clause: “FVF Law is a values-driven law firm, and because diversity is a value we support, “good cause” [for termination] shall include any expression by the client of intolerance with respect to race, ethnicity, gender, religion, or sexual orientation.”
Now more than ever, FVF recognizes the global need to combat racism proactively, and to do so with more than just words. This firm was built on the mission of being better. Better lawyers. Better advocates. Better people.
We all know being better requires an ongoing commitment to learning, growth, introspection, and change. We enthusiastically embrace that commitment and hereby pledge to do more than just talk about it. Stay tuned on our blog and facebook page for more about what FVF is doing to back this important global effort.
In the meantime, we would respectfully request new clients who find their own views incompatible with this pledge to consider contacting another firm to handle their case. In any case, we invite you to provide honest feedback by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
Josh and Aaron, and all of FVF Law
