Posted by a Child Custody client
I hired Leslie for my divorce and custody case in November. I paid her 2500 for a retainer and she did nothing for me. I was issued a protective order by the DA of Tarrant county and she and her legal aide tried charging me for services pertaining to the protective order although they were not the ones who was able to obtain the protective order. I continuosly received incorrect and inaccurate information from her and her legal aide Cole throughout my case. She did absolutely nothing for the 2500 I paid her and each month I was charged incorrectly and consistently had to fight to get erouneous charges lifted. Her legal aide is extremely rude and inconsiderate and would consistnely overcharge me for example for reading an email with 2 or 3 sentences I was charged 25 minutes each time however according to the contract was in 15 minute increments. I might as well have thrown away 2500 rather than paying Miss Barrows

Leslie Barrows has successfully represented me twice involving family law issues. Personally, she is compassionate and caring. Professionally she is extremely knowledgeable, tenacious and thorough. My family and I are very thankful for Leslie and her very capable and dedicated staff.

Leslie drafted a pre-nuptual agreement for my fiance and I. The information she provided was very helpful. I appreciate the fact the agreement was very specific. Before going to Ms. Barrows, I downloaded a general online prenuptual package. I was not at peace knowing that it could possibly be challenged in court should the need ever arise. My family situation was complicated because I had inherited land and other assets that has been in my family for years. My fiance was in the same situation. We decided to seek advice from an attorney and Ms. Barrows was recommended to us by a mutual friend. Ms. Barrows was very meticulous in putting together the agreement.
We also were very impressed by Vicki, Leslie's legal assistant who is also very personable and was just simply awesome. As a result, my husband and I are completely at peace. Our marriage is stronger and more secure because we addressed issues of money and finance prior to our marriage. It has also given both of our parents peace of mind because they feel it was a mature decision on both of our behalf.

Ms. Barrows handles all of my various civil and legal issues from wills, contracts, estate, deeds, trusts, etc...
She knows the law. Furthermore, she has the personality and demeanor in a courtroom that has made me incredibly comfortable in a courtroom, where before, I was very nervous and did not have full faith in my attorney.
Ms. Barrows is formidable in her stategies. You want Ms. Barrows on your side. I shudder to even think of facing her in a courtroom. Therefore, I will keep her on retainer 24/7.
I have recommended Ms. Barrows to all of my friends. She can handle all of your legal needs.

Creative, responsive, affordable, and respected lawyer and counselor with a sense of urgency. My multiple experiences with attorney Leslie Starr Barrows have each resulted in success. From my first phone call, which she answered herself, Ms. Barrows was totally committed to my complete satisfaction. I discovered that Ms. Barrows is well rooted and respected in Tarrant, Denton and Collin County courts, having professional relationships with the judges, prosecutors and agency case workers, which facilitated the positive outcome of my trials. Ms. Barrows has a diverse knowledge of the law, but most importantly it was her tenacious focus on winning, which fueled her confidence and demeanor in the courtroom. During discovery, her creativity and resourcefulness, were invaluable. She quickly took control of my defense, asserted a winning strategy and was accessible during each step of the trial process. Her understanding of the behavior of juveniles in trouble and adults in transition offered me a comprehensive, caring, and affordable legal representation from a single source.

Referred to me from a friend who was using Ms. Barrows for the first time. I have never retained a lawyer for a traffic citation before so I was curious to see if it actually paid off - wrong. The only time I was contacted via phone was to get payment from me. After that, I was contacted solely through e-mail and hardly given any details of what was going on. All information received felt like pulling teeth - had to ask a ton of questions and was given short vague answers. Was initially told she could have the ticket not go on my record and probably lower the fine. The only good thing that occurred was the ticket will not go on my record HOWEVER the ticket has now cost me twice as much as it would have cost had I just taken care of it myself. I feel like she saw my case as a petty citation and an easy bit of cash to just toss in with the rest to attend court and knock out in 1 day. Steer clear of this one's promises and find yourself a better attorney.
