Leigh was excellent. I believe many people expect a hand holding. Although Leigh's compassion may be her weakness, it is the most important trait of a criminal defense attorney. Many defense attorneys treat your case as "another day at work". Not Leigh, your case is individual and needs that kind of attention. It matters to her so that kind of attention is provided from her.
Leigh Gonnet was absolutely amazing. She got my DWI dismissed without any probation. I simply had to take a few classes and do community service. She believed in my case and cared about my rights. Was always sweet and considerate. She responded to missed calls quickly and kept me well informed through out the process.
Leigh is great!!! I can't thank Leigh enough for the job she did on my case. I was recommended by a friend who had his DUI reduced to an obstruction of a highway and I had mine reduced down to the same, great job Leigh, thanks again.
Leigh is a very good lawyer that handled my case with professinalism and respect.She kept me informed of the progress of my case and achieved positive results in the outcome of my case.I would certainly recommend this attorney to all my friends and anyone in need of professional legal help.
Leigh is a superior criminal defense attorney. She represented me in a professional manner and is always available to answer any questions I might have as well providing excellent representation. I have known her for several years and would highly recommend her to anyone seeking legal representation for a legal criminal matter. I recommended her to several of my friends and when their cases were resolved they all thanked me for the referral.
In a perfect world nobody would ever need a defense lawyer. Knowing that this isn't a perfect world, sometimes we all need legal defense and representation. I have lived in a number of cities and states in the U.S. and have had to hire a defense lawyer a few times over the years.
Leigh Gonnet is among the best criminal defense attorneys that I have ever met. I have had to seek her counsel twice and both times the charges were dismissed. Leigh is very competent and extremely dedicated to her clients. She understands the process in which legal proceedings are carried out, having the most effective method and getting the most desired results within reason.
She is, by far, a superior defense attorney. I was very pleased to hire her, and will do so in the future if I ever need a defense attorney again.
I have known Leigh for over 20 years and she has represented me on several cases. She is always responsive when needed. She has good rapport with judges. Her fee is much more reasonable than other attorneys. Leigh worked for several years at the Department of Public Safety and is very knowledgeable of the law. Leigh is a compassionate attorney and has a genuine concern for the well being of her clients.
If I could give less than 1 star I would. I hired this lawyer mainly because of the low price. Like they say, Cheap is not always good. Leigh was always late, and unresponsive most of the time. In court, she spoke very submissively under her breathe rather than strong willed as I would expect a defense attorney to. Such responses as, "I suppose that's what it means". Seriously, that's how you are going to answer the judge? In court she was not even attentive during our session, rather chatting with others. I was appalled. If I had money to sue this lawyer for her lack of effort I would!
My advise to anyone thinking about using this lawyer is DON'T. Spend a little more money and get a competent lawyer who has your best interest in mind. Leigh Gonnet is not one of those.
