Vanessa S.L. Hillsdon


Vanessa began her career providing service to people who needed help through social service agencies before and while attending law school. Finding every benefit available and maximizing the assistance given to people truly in need of help were among Vanessa’s most important successes before she began her legal career. Now, in the context of her private law practice, Vanessa brings her passion, commitment and determination to bear advocating for her clients. Vanessa’s background, intellectual interests and skills are broad. She provides advice to community association clients suggesting practical solutions to community problems including collection of past due debts, violations, and drafting contracts, among other things.
