Larry and his paralegals are so amazing to work with. They actually care about their clients. When I called to get advice when not a client, they were willing to listen and help me in any way they can. I highly recommend them. I felt cared about and in great hands every time working with them.
Larry asked briefly for my side and concerns, ONCE, others arose, the children were being badmouthed and caught in the middle (very young 2 and 1) he did nothing to work with the other attorney to stop this. My ex wife applied for a restraining order and got it because Mr. Leach advised that we should not contest it as it might make her mad, that hearing was held as a status conference. in our four way conference we were given no true financials for my ex and now three years later her actual financials were never received although we had to agree to something on the Sworn Financial Statement and we did. He filled a response to my ex wife's petition for separation but I did not find out about that filing until a year and half later and from my new attorney. He did not help prepare me for court, I had NO IDEA that I would be taking the stand for anything, he had had me prepare financial exhibits and I thought we were there only to separate our assets but then found out that we were there primarily to discuss custody which I tried to do but wasn't prepared for, my ex lied about our relationship and everything in it and Larry did not redirect me on the stand to address her statements or redirect me so I could completely answer questions posed by opposing counsel, we lost. Three years after the fact and hundreds of thousands of dollars later I am still in court, even post divorce, fighting for things Mr. Leach should have addressed while he represented me but did not. Our children have been forced to not see their father for over 8 months now and this is our current struggle post divorce and thankfully without Mr. Leach we are winning.
Rude paralegal, no communication, poor legal advice , no accountability , uncaring. The most bumbling group of so called professionals EVER! Larry seemed uninbformed on the details of my case during the court proceedings.
I hired Larry Leach to assist me with a Child Custody case, and all this lawyer did was show up in court introduce himself and charge me $270.00 every court date. He took every penny I had and after all is said and done, I am back to square one and my $3,000.00 is gone. He never returned my calls; he never made any suggestions, or shows any emotion, he just attends and collects. He never advised or suggested a deferred plan so when the time came, and I was in the ring, he could fight for me, but literally nothing was accomplished, nothing at all! He even forgot to file the form that should have been filed in the beginning. I was charged for so many petty things, I could have done myself, and the paralegal I worked with was no help at all. I am so disappointed and sick because I did not research or educate myself on “how to hire” a lawyer. I was discouraged on calling and seeking assistance in fear of getting billed. This was a case of “take the candy from the baby” it was sly and quick and I am so disappointed.
I hired Larry Leach to help me get full custody for my there children and the case turned to be a child support case. I was told my case would cap out to 5000 dollars and it turned to be 16000 dollars. On top of that im now getting charged interest because i didnt pay in full.When we went to court he was very unorganized and didn't know what was going on at times. His paralegal is very rude. Now my case is over and my case remains the same. What I hired him for was to win full custody which still remains joint custody. The results in child support still remain the same as well. Not getting anything. Also he won't release my records to me.Larry did not change my case one bit and I am very disappointed in this attorney. I won't not recommend this attorney.
Larry was very knowledgeable of divorce proceedings. He always saw the bigger picture, where I would get stuck in the weeds (emotions) and he was the voice of reason.
Larry is an excellent lawyer. His attention to detail and his thoughtfulness was very important to me as I went through a very lenghty divorce process. Larry was always concerned about my well being and the well being of my children throughout the whole entire process. He worked with me as my legal fee's mounted and never once denied me representation as he understood what I was dealing with and he helped me get through the process to not make what I was dealing with more stressful. He always gives me good legal advice and helps me come to agreement that have been in the best interest for both me and my ex-husband. He know's the law business 100% and I wouldn't trade him for any other lawyer because he is the best. His compassion for the law and just being an upright citizen gives other lawyers a good reputation which is totally lacking in the legal community. I still utilize Larry and plan to keep him as my lawyer as long as I have to endure legal proceedings.
Horrible experience. I would not recommend him or his law firm. His paralegal was rude and late with everything. The lawyer was an hour and a half late to meet me at court but is still trying to charge me for it.
