When I hired Ms. Lesowitz, I was at my most vulnerable state; my husband had not only left me with two toddlers and an empty bank acct, he nearly killed me and physically abused our eldest child beyond comprehension. Having said that, I was distrustful of anyone until I met Ms.Lesowitz. Not only did she extend a friendly hand, but she demonstrated professionalism and expertise in the highest caliber! She was able to get CSE to expedite my case and worked diligently to assist in my case, while taking time to explain things along the way.
I am writing this review to express my profound gratitude for and to my attorney, Jessica Lesowitz. From the moment I first met Ms. Lesowitz, I was soothed by her intelligence and commitment. I was immediately confident that she would be a formidable ally in the campaign to protect the stability of my son, and I was not mistaken. At every step I was thoroughly informed as to the process, as well as what would be required of me. In the end, Ms. Lesowitz negotiated terms with opposing counsel that more than satisfied my needs. I could not have asked for better representation!
I hired Jessica to represent me in a custody case in NC. She took my money, dismissed my case and stated that "There were some errors in your paperwork, and I am going to refile it next week." She never refiled it as she agreed and it has been almost 18 months since she was hired. She wouldn't return my phone calls or emails and it was impossible to get in touch with her.
After doing an internet search for her, I found that she was working for a law firm in California. She never told me that she was moving to California and was going to just practice law there. She should have finished the case she was paid to do before she moved. What kind of shady disrespectful lawyer moves to another state and fails to inform their client in the middle of an open case.
I would not trust her at this point as she has lied to me, and never did what she said she was going to do. She took my money and ran.
I went to Ms. Lesowitz 3 1/2 years to handle my divorce. There wasn't much money involved so it was a small case. I met her in her office, was very impressed and gave her a $5,000.00 retainer and that was the last time I saw her. After 2 months, I emailed several times and getting no response, left several phone messages at her office (each time I called, after giving my name, I was told she was in court). I never heard back from her. Finally, during the 4th month, I called and gave a different name.....she was there! I had to start over again with another lawyer (who finished the divorce in 60 days), less $2,000. that she charged me for her time.
she is the best lawyer you could hope for, no regrets, got the job done
