she is the worst attorney imaginable she didn't care whatsoever about my child my case for me she promise you things doesn't do anything doesn't notify you of court dates help you in any way is arrogant as all hell. Perrsonally she should be disbarred
So Leslie rqrs 4k to retain. Up front no payment !! K got that...
In my initial interview she seemed cold and unapproachable .. thats my own stupidity for hiring her after that initial meeting! Leslie told me my divorce case was simple not complicated and could be completed relatively quickly,, 6-8 mos..well 18 months later it's still not done. She agreed to set a stipulation aside Then filed on it!! So basically she has an integrity issue. X can now take me back which he has and I have agreed to set stipulation aside.
No attny, no $$, and no divorce!!
WOW Leslie claims to have done everything she should've!! REALLY ?
Had to have another attny who comped me 30 min counsel tell me it
Wasn't a clean clear filing, and to set aside and represent myself AND file a claim with State Board.. Will see where that goes.
DO NOT USE LESLIE,
You have been warned!!
simply said...the finest "Family Law Attorney" in this area.I had the misfortune of being on the opposing side of the court room,and ATTORNEY jENSEN cleaned our clock,did it systematically,and very professionally.Hopefully I will never have to have an divorce attorney again,but if I do,rest assured,it will be Leslie Jensen.
I am in the process of making a formal complain against Leslie F. Jensen. she didn't do anything to help me during my divorce. she didn't review my case at all, she didn't care. she was quick to collect the $4000, but useless otherwise. She gossiped about me, as I witnessed first had in the court room as she and another attorney gossiping about their clients. she sat in mediation, but didn't do anything to protect my children's interests. She is not any woman's advocate, specially those women that have a say about what she isn't doing & God for bid if anyone questions her or her intentions. I begged her over and over for advice. The only thing I ever got from her was, she would shrug her shoulders and say "I DON'T KNOW" she had the nastiest attitude, is judgmental, extremely RUDE, unbelievably arrogant, most of all if she doesn't like you, she's not invested in your case and will do the least amount of work possible. I never once felt assured or protected by her or her ability to represent me adequately. I was completely alone in this process. she didn't review any of my paperwork, I was never given any notice for court dates by her. I never once was given any advice by her or her office. as this was my first time going through a divorce I wasn't sure of anything and needed an attorney who would share her wisdom & advise me with her knowledge of the law or with her experience of the family courts system. I wasn't happy with her from the first custody mediation, as she did nothing to protect my children from unnecessary traveling. I emailed her to tell her I was completely unhappy and needed better representation, and she basically told me she was appalled at the contents of my email, and furthermore she proceeded to basically (to my understanding and those of whom have read the emails) threatened me with " state of California is more favorable with a parent who is willing to share the kids" those words scared me to death, I felt like I had to give into every demand, or else ... She over charged me for a meeting that was only a half hour, but charged me 45 minute, over charged me for emails, & phone calls. she was never on time in court. I was always the last man standing in the court room. She made it extremely hard for me to ask questions, I was very afraid that she would abandon me all together and I didn't have the means to hire another attorney. she sat back and did nothing. my ex and I have a huge loan, and/or financial obligation to a family member where it involved a large sum of money. Loans that were given and property that was purchased in the family members name, and then later lost because we could not pay for that property any longer. anyway, I had submitted pages of return check copies and such. None of which she had EVER reviewed or ever given proper attention to, and in the end she screwed up the agreement so badly trying to convince me to take on full responsibility of the loan & telling me it was written as to my request. which was a complete LIE. I would never agree to anything like that. I was forced to just accept what she was saying. she rushed me through everything, she kept saying sigh here. sign here. sign here. and bam it was done. she didn't do any research to protect with the IRS matter, I told her I was advised by an accountant who told me this is not ok, not a good plan for you, not to your best interest, & she yelled at me in the court house lobby and walked away. didn't tell me I had to wait around to get a copy of my divorce settlement. All she told me was, " I'm done" and walked out of the court room. I later found out that I was suppose to stay there to receive a copy of the signed documents, or I was suppose to provide a self addressed envelope to have those important documents mailed to me. Leslie Jensen was the worst thing that happened to me. she screwed me. My ex says "I had both your attorney and my attorney working for me" she basically refused to do her job, she screwed me ...
How do I find the words? Leslie is rude, judgemental and doesnt care about child or client. She was always judgemental and cold. I felt as though she were the enemy and I was scared to speak. She made a couple or critical mistakes ( missed a court date and gave me wrong information) and charged me for them as well. She was a waste of time and money..........not to mention my child was a stake. She is snooty and full of herself, which blinds her of the real perpose....... The best interest of a child. She never stood up for or fought for my child. This is not who you want by your side or to put good faith in at a time like this......so much to loose!
I sought out Leslie at the recommendation of a good friend. When Leslie and I met, I was reeling from the very poor results my first counsel produced in the child custody and mediation process. Once Leslie agreed to substitute in on my case, she worked swiftly and somewhat miraculously to rectify the damage that had been done. Leslie is undeniably competent, appropriate and responsive. Her approach is realistic, unemotional and on point.....exactly what someone in the chaos of divorce needs. My son has the protections he deserves and I have the peace of mind that protection affords. I would recommend her to anyone who needs effective counsel. In my opinion, her skill is unmatched.
Leslie Jensen came highly recommended! Upon our consultation, I knew I wanted to be represented by Leslie. She and her caring, supportive staff were always attentive to my personal, legal issues and handled promptly with complete communication. Leslie Jensen is brilliant! She is a professional woman of high integrity. During our court session's, she was an articulate speaker and maintained respect from the Judge. I never lost hope with Leslie's strength and confidence! I received excellent service from Leslie and her staff. Our journey together was long but the results were successful! If you are in need of an excellent divorce attorney, contact Leslie F. Jensen. She will assist you with an important decision that reflects your life. You'll be thankful that you did. I never looked back with doubt. Thanks to Leslie, my case has been resolved.
This attorney was great during the initial consultation for a simple divorce that never went to court. I only met with her during the initial consultation (which I came very prepared for) and spoke with her twice on the phone. Her staff proceeded to email the settlement agreement which had to be fixed multiple times due to wrong client names, grammatical errors, wrong court number... you name it. I have yet to get a penny back from my hefty deposit. When I can finally speak with someone, they say they will send a response, but never do. I can only assume the turnover is high at this office. I will be filing a complaint to the BAR.
Leslie Jensen is superb. She guided and supported me every step of the way. She cared about my case and went above and beyond for me. She believed in me and is always there when I need her. I met with four different attorneys when I was searching for representation. When I came to Leslie’s office my entire case changed direction. She was in contact with me on a regular basis. Leslie’s presence in court is undeniably superior as she is very smart with her words, her angle, and tactics. I felt very confident in the court as she presented herself in the most professional and knowledgeable manner. I feel lucky to have been supported by such a caring, communicative office staff.
Leslie Jensen is the best lawyer in the Northern County by far. Extremely talented litigator and very knowledgeable. The best representation I have ever come across.
