Thankful for Years of Assistance
Thank you for all you have done for so many years. With gratitude,
- C.F., Coquitlam, B.C.
Very Down to Earth
Ms. Little is a very down to earth, logical lawyer. She is a straight shooter, has many years of experience and tremendous insight in human behavior. She gave me excellent candid advice and was approachable. She knew when to play nice and when to push a little more. And she was fair if I wanted to do something that beyond her advise. She knows how the system works and has been in the same community for many years. When dealing with something where emotions run high, such as a divorce, it’s good to have an experienced pragmatic realist in your corner. I have the utmost respect and appreciation for Ms. Little and her team.

Great Guidance Offered

Confident, Experienced & Approachable
I would like to express my thanks and appreciation to Valerie for the support, understanding and excellent legal guidance that she provided to me throughout my separation process. I was freshly separated and completely confused and emotional when I walked into her office looking for a lawyer that I would feel comfortable with and one that I felt understood the complexities of separating from my narcissistic ex. I knew very quickly that Valerie was that person and I feel very fortunate to have her to represent me. Valerie always shows me that she has my and my children's best interests at heart. I am able to contact her for any issue that is important to me and she (or her efficient and friendly office assistant Donna) takes the time to respond in a timely manner. I am also impressed by her years of experience and her confidence in her abilities; when I told her my ex's lawyer was an expensive lawyer from Vancouver she put me right at ease by saying it wasn't an issue who his lawyer was and then went right back to work to get the issues at hand dealt with.
I would recommend her highly.
Thank you, Valerie.

Best legal move I could have made
I first heard of Valerie Little from a family member whom she had just finished representing, MS. Little had managed to stop an unfair reapportionment of assets when it looked like it was a forgone conclusion. I was already involved in a complicated and vicious divorce with ineffective council so I decided to give her a chance. It turned out to be the best legal move I could have made. Six years and every level of legal wrangling from dealing with Masters right up to the Supreme Court she fought all the way and thanks to Ms Little I too was saved from an unfair reapportionment of assets. So if you need a lawyer who is smart and dedicated then you definitely need Ms Little.

Thank you for your guidance
I went through the phone book and found Valerie Little. Read her insert and her 20 years’ experience caught my eye. We set an appointment and Valerie was very quick in grasping our dilemma. She took charge and collected information that was needed and set the wheels in motion with our concerns in mind. Very professional in the court room and her finesse and foresight was instrumental bringing the impact of Canadian Law to the person my daughter was separated from. We are moving forward with confidence and as a team and justice for my daughter and grandson will prevail. Thank you so much Valerie for the guidance and professionalism you have displayed. We are forever grateful.

Handling my case with ease
Just felt the need to thank you both for yesterday. You have such a lovely disposition. Donna and somehow are able to make me feel less stressed when I arrive! I am also impressed with Valerie! What a difference from my old lawyer. I truly feel that now the issues at hand will finally be dealt with properly. It is a good feeling. I somehow feel protected now and for that I thank you. You are a great team!
- MA, Maple Ridge, BC
Brilliant and caring
I think you are one of the most brilliant and caring people I have ever met.

Steadfast during the storm
I was recommended Valerie from two friends. My informal separation agreement between my spouse and I had gone sideways and all chaos had erupted. Once given the details Valerie knew exactly what type of person I was dealing with and knew the next move before it was made. Her confidence and experience made me comfortable to trust her fully with my case. This allowed me to focus my attention where it was needed - my children and work and my own mental health. Valerie and Donna were very patient with my roller coaster of emotions and they always put me at ease. Knowing someone was on my side with such skill and understanding was very comforting. I was very blessed to be supported by Valerie and Donna - thank you so much for making a very bad situation well managed.
- HL, New Westminster, BC
Thank you for your very sage advice and generous offer to go in and read my response in court for me. I could not have been so calm without having spoken to you first! Thanks again!

Million thanks is not enough
My ex husband was in USA NYC. I was in Burnaby with my son only 2 years old at that time. I went to several lawyers about how I can divorce with my husband. But all lawyers told me I have to go to NYC with someone to serve him. I did not have anybody to go with. I found Valerie on Japanese community website. She said she has connection to NYC so she can help me out to do all divorce process. I did not know what do I need for sole custody and she would just explain to me what I need for the future and step by step helped me to get through whole process. She was so kind and genuine and honest. Understand our feeling who is going to be a single mom. I would totally rely on her and everything went so nicely and perfectly. I will definitely recommend her to everyone I know and more people who need help. She does work very hard and knows what she needs to do everything. Very proud woman for me. I feel only grateful and thankful for everything she did for me. Thank you so much Valerie. Million thanks is not enough!

Extensive knowledge of family law
When I met Ms. Little, I was in extreme stress. As soon as I explained what was happening in my life, she knew immediately what to do for me and my child, and she obtained the necessary court orders to protect our safety and secure us financially. I am so pleased with the way she has managed everything. Her knowledge of family law is extensive. She made me feel secure during every step of the process. She has shown patience, care and passion in securing the future safety and financial security of my family. Thank you so much.

Skilled professional and zealous advocate for children
Valerie Little represented me through the intricacies of my difficult divorce and continues to guide me through ongoing parenting-time issues. She is a skilled professional and zealous advocate for children. Her vast knowledge of family law is as impressive as is her calming presence during stressful courtroom appearances.
Her professionalism and commitment in steadfastly shielding our family from my uncooperative and unrelenting ex-spouse is appreciated more than words can say and I will be forever grateful for all she has done and continues to do for my child and myself.
She demonstrates integrity, dedication, kindness, patience and compassion. I have total confidence in her abilities as an attorney and highly recommend Ms. Little to anyone seeking representation for a legal matter. Her expertise and professionalism is unparalleled.

Reliable and supportive
Ms. Valerie Little represented me during an arduous family law action which involved spousal separation and access to a child. Ms. Little was very reliable and supportive; her thorough direction, legal knowledge and ethical standards are the best that I have experienced in family law.
In chambers, it was evident that her professional conduct was favourably acknowledged and appreciated by the court’s Masters and Justices.
Considering Ms. Little’s immediate capacity to absorb and push forward with the volume of my file, I must strongly recommend her services as a lawyer or family mediator.
- BH, Vancouver, BC
There is no one else I would have represent me
Thank you so much for everything. The last minute work you did for me was invaluable and highly appreciated. If we needed to go to court, there is no one else I would have represent me. You and your assistant are worth your weight in gold.
- HV, New Westminster, BC
Valerie helped me through one of the greatest challenges in my life
I can tell you that going through my marital issues was one of my greatest challenges that I faced in my lifetime; going to see marriage counsellors, marriage workshops and trying to make the relationship work.
But alas, when the marriage is not salvageable and your spouse is represented by an adversarial lawyer, you are forced to choose someone to represent your best interests. I chose Valerie Little because I knew that she was experienced and that she had a good reputation amongst her peers.
During this difficult journey to divorce, Valerie was very supportive and gave me sage advice. She outlined my options, the very things that I needed the most. In the end, I obtained my divorce and Valerie negotiated a fair settlement for myself and my former spouse. Should any of my friends ever need a divorce lawyer, I would not hesitate to recommend Valerie to them.

Perceptive, intelligent and well versed in law
My ex told me he was filing for divorce immediately with a Vancouver lawyer. I had an introductory meeting with a Port Moody lawyer but I was not impressed by his presentation. He told me the one person he wouldn’t want to come up against in divorce court was Valerie Little, that she was a bulldog. Naturally, I called Valerie Little’s office and was given an introductory appointment for the next day.
I found Ms. Little to be very perceptive, intelligent and well versed in law. She quickly grasped the situation that I was in and gave me some options as to how to proceed, as well as informing me of the pros and cons of each option. She has many years of experience in family law and in mediation, and is very knowledgeable about legal proceedings. I found her advice to be sound, considerate and well thought out.
Once I made the decision to go ahead with the divorce under her care, she very quickly filed the necessary paperwork and prepared my case for the first hearing in court.
My ex refused to leave the family home or pay spousal / child support, and threatened to take sole custody of our child. After the first hearing, Ms. Little was able to get myself and my child back into the family home, get spousal and child support and enabled me to keep my child with me, except on alternate weekends.
If it had not been for Ms. Little’s excellent representation, the outcome of this hearing could have been very different. And despite repeated litigation by my ex, two years later the initial orders of the court still stand, thanks to Ms. Little’s strategic thinking and strong defence of my position.
I have always found Ms. Little to be extremely caring and sympathetic. She returns my calls and responds to my emails very promptly. She and her staff are courteous and pleasant. She has had the same assistant for the past two years.
I am very relieved that I did not have time to find another lawyer. Ms. Little has been very supportive of me and my child during this difficult time and is a truly outstanding lawyer to have fighting in your corner. I would highly recommend Ms. Little.
- MJ, Port Moody, BC
My family is at peace. So every day I thank God for you. Think of you often.
- GL, Abbotsford, BC
Your hard work was appreciated
Many thanks to you and your staff for all of your hard work during my recent litigation.

Ms. Little turned around my stalled legal case
Ms. Little represented me in a complex family matter. Her experience, communication skills and intelligence turned around a stalled legal case. Ms. Little was able to identify basic elements of my case where movement could happen. Her up-to-date, effective and kind practice of law was a real benefit to our family. I highly recommend Ms. Little as a knowledgeable lawyer who will represent you fully and fairly.

Valerie helped me through my real estate sale
I recently sold my house and contacted Valerie to see the deal through. Although it seemed like an easy task, it turned out to be anything but and thanks to Valerie and her team, the sale progressed through many unforeseen obstacles. My only job was to sign a few documents and in the end, pocket more money than I originally expected!
If you find yourself in need of legal advice, I would wholeheartedly recommend the office of Valerie M Little Family Law.
