About Us


Vincent M. Barone, Esq.

Nicole H. Vanderwall, Esq.


We went to law school because we wanted to help people, and have a combined legal experience of over 40 years. We love what we do.

At Vanderwall Barone Law Office, you're not just a file number. We take the time to get to know all of our clients on a personal level, to ensure you have a positive experience.

We use the latest methods - such as mediation - to give our clients quicker and less expensive results. Most matters brought to us are settled out of court. We also come with a network of professionals such as doctors; social workers; financial planners and other specialists that enable us to take a holistic approach - getting our clients the best outcomes.

Nothing is set in stone. Your satisfaction matters most!
