How to root the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note II
MrRobinson and Beanstown101 - these are the folks you have to be thankful to and buy a beer for their hard work on rooting the Verizon Samsung Galaxy Note II already.

There are even the steps to roll back the rooting if you need to for warranty purposes and such:
