My husband and I worked with Leah on a child custody case that involved two different states. Prior to retaining her she assured us she had worked on cases similar to our and that she knew how to handle the case. It took over an entire year and almost three times what she estimated the entire process would cost. We went to court once to have our case dropped and completely redone because she had done everything wrong and did not file the correct paperwork. She continued to tell us that the issues were those of the court loosing paperwork. She then charged us MANY HOURS to fix her mistakes and redo everything the correct way. We even had to hire a lawyer in another state to handle the out of state cases. She assured us should could handle everything, but could not. The second lawyer chanrged us $500.00 and she charged us over $8,000.00 for an uncontested custody case. She also did not tell us some bills were taken out of our retainer. These bills were suprisingly the months she had to redo all of her work. We did not find out she charged us to redo everyting until the case was done and we were expecting our retainer reund.
Leah Coulter helped me through one of the most difficult periods of my life - my divorce. At our first meeting she was compassionate and kind, gently explaining the process step-by-step. She assured me that she would take care of everything, and she did, keeping me informed every step of the way. I met with another lawyer who made the process seem much more confusing, at a time in my life when I felt so confused about everything already. Leah could not have been more professional and worked hard to stay within my budget keeping the correspondence to what was essential to save money. I am so grateful for all she did for me.
Leah was my rock through a very emotional and stressful custody battle. She is compassionate, sincere, honest and very knowledgeable. Leah was dedicated to my case and kept me informed at all times. I always felt valued and important. I would highly recommend Leah! She is an amazing person to have on your legal team. I would defiantly use her again.
Leah did a great job in my 2-year long battle, She was great in coaching me at the court hearings, she had great intel on judges and adapted the delivery to their style (we went through 3), she definitely knew her material for presenting the case. Leah was great in managing the communications with me and proactive in anticipation of my needs.
Leah helped me through a rough divorce and was very knowledgable, sympathetic, yet honest. She would tell me what I can and can't do even though at times it wasn't what I wanted to hear. She listened to my requests and worked to the best of her abilities to make those requests happen. I would highly recommend her should you need an attorney that is honest (there are very few out there).
I engaged Leah Coulter for a divorce proceeding. She listened to me and did exactly what I wanted done. She provided excellent advice in the areas where I had questions or needed guidance on the law or what to expect from a judge or the other attorney. Leah was to the point, empathetic, knowledgeable, personsonable, realistic and able to make accurate and quality assetssments as new issues arose She interacted well with opposing attorney's and handled my divorce very professionally and efficiently without extending the process or excessive billing. I would highly recommend Leah for family law or other areas of the law where she practices.
