    • I recommend James Hagler.

    The one mistake I made during my divorce was not hiring the law firm of Jeffery M Leving to handle my case.
    I had a pending divorce case after I fired my first attorney who had no idea how to handle divorce case and misrepresenting me.
    I met with Mr. Hagler who put me at ease with his expertise and professionalism.
    He was in and out of the court room and fought hard for me. He walked me through every stage of my case and always returned my calls when I needed his advice. All of his staff members were all very helpful.
    Mr. Hagler will always take that extra step to fight for the best interest of his clients , especially fathers.
    I want to thank Mr. Hagler for helping me get through this difficult time during my divorce,for his knowledge ,support and advice.

    • I recommend James Hagler.
    • James handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with 1-2 lawyers.

    James Hagler is a terrific, no nonsense lawyer. He handled a very sensitive post divorce matter. After my experience with two previous family lawyers I was shocked that a divorce lawyer of Mr. Haglers caliber existed. He understood the facts, he did not promise to do things that he couldn't deliver, (like the previous lawyers) he told me what a realistic outcome could be, and he went to work. He always returned my calls. I highly recommend him without reservation. I wish there were more lawyers like Mr. Hagler.

    • I recommend James Hagler.
    • I hired James 1-6 months ago.
    • James handled my Child Custody matter.
    • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

    I hired Mr. Hagler to help with my custody case. He was amazing in and out of the court room and fought hard for me. He walked me through ever stage of the case and always returned my calls the same day. He has a lot of experts that are part of his team and they were all very helpful. I have had lawyers in the past who were crooks so it is a breath of fresh air to find an attorney who actually knows what he's doing and cares.

    • I recommend James Hagler.
    • I hired James more than 3 years ago.
    • James handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
    • I have previously worked with more than 10 lawyers.

    Jim was the third lawyer to handle a simple, but ugly divorce. He was outstanding in all areas. In the courtroom he was very professional and was well prepared to go to trial. The trial was scheduled for at least two days and it lasted less than a day. His strategy was excellent and he let my ex's attorney bury herself. It was unfortunate that my ex would not negotiate, she would have gotten a lot more out of me. But when you watch too much Divorce Court, that's what happens. I think she wanted the Judge to admonish me for wanting to divorce her. I ended up with a result that I expected if we went to trial.
