We were in the middle of a long drawn out trial for custody of my daughter. We were not happy with our former attorney and had to make a scary decision to change lawyers only two weeks prior to the start of our trial. We found Dawn, retained her, and gave her a large amount of paperwork that had been accumulated in this case to review. She showed up the day of trial fully prepared. Our trial lasted several days but after day one we knew we had made the right choice. Dawn was amazing in the court room! After all was said and done I won my case, one of the best Christmas gifts I could receive. This is a lawyer that pulled us out of a really bad situation when my former attorney bled me dry and I had nothing to show for it, Dawn has a heart and will not take advantage of you and I highly recommend her! Thank you to dawn and all of her staff for everything I won't go anywhere else if I need legal services in the future.
Consult was great gave retainer which was cashed thAt very day. Sent one email which they did not answer an it cost me $25.00! Majority of retainer is gone. Otherwise have not heard from them since, Afraid to call them for fear of how much a call will cost me. Is this how all lawyers work? Using for divorce. Not sure what to rate her In The above as I really haven't seen her work yet.
I read all the reviews before I hired an attorney. I found good and bad for everyone. I guess you cant make everyone happy. After interviewing three other attorneys I chose Dawn. She was very informative and helped me through my divorce. She was always prepared every step of the way and numerous times had to tell the other attorney what was going on. She even went to bat for me when the Judge made a bad ruling and got the judge to change his mind. She is worth every penny I spent....which was thousands less than my ex-husband!!!!
Ms. Leeds did my divorce and I couldn't be happier! She was very knowledgeable and made my divorce a lot less stressful. She made sure my bill stayed reasonable and did not charge me for frivolous things. The office was very responsive and got back to me within hours of my contacting them. She was the most competent and understanding attorney I have ever dealt with in my life and I've dealt with a lot! I highly recommend her.
I retained Ms. Leeds for my child custody/child support case and she did very little ... except run my bank account dry. She has very little legal ability in my book. She does very little work and wastes your time. I had to correct Dawn's mistakes over and over again when she calc'd my child support obligation. Over and over again I had to correct mistakes in the certification and motion. When I went in to sign the final copy of my certification I had to explain to Dawn and her staff that the certification was not printing correctly and that it was printing words outside the margins on the document. I was told to just sign the last page of the certification. I had to explain in great detail that printing the document correctly would take many more pages once they corrected the margins problem and my signing the last page before the correct would be a problem. It was simple common sense things that REALLY sent shivers up my spine. I asked Ms. Leeds if we could get a preliminary copy of the judges order before I went to court and Ms. Leeds told me that the judge in my case "doesn't do that". I had to call her and email her again and ask that she please find out if a preliminary order would be issued. Come to find out that the judge does issue preliminary orders in his cases and Ms. Leeds was just too lazy to do her job competently. In my book for the $$$ Ms. Leeds was paid she can only be classified as incompetent. You can do a lot better than her for the money.
Dawn has been great though my divorce. With the help of her staff Karen they have both have done far more than I ever thought an Attorney would do They are the best
I used Dawn Leeds for family law. She is the "BEST" very thorough, very aggressive and I totally love the way she operates. Don't be upset if you she doesn't get to you promptly, but she will get back to you one way or another. I was not disappointed in her services at all. I am using her for future law cases.
So helpful in every part of our home purchase. Dawn made the process easy and worry free. Very happy my legal plan recommended her to us.
Dawn was very easy to deal with in all aspects. She returned every call and email within a few hours. She explained the entire process to me repeatedly with complaint. I felt she was always fighting for me. She knew the law much better than my husband's attorney. I felt lucky to have her as my attorney. i recom'd her to everyone i know!
Dawn was unprepared for mediation and was reprimanded by the judge. Nickel and dimed me to death and blew my entire pre paid account. I fired her and hired a $275/hr lawyer that had to redo what Dawn screwed up.
You get what you pay for!
