Mrs. Bottimore represented me in a family law case. When I initially met with her I stated I needed someone who could be a pit bull in the court room. She was a pit bull in a skirt. This gave me confidence and reassured me in her capabilities. We won, and now my daughter is home, safe, and flourishing. I would recommend Mrs. Bottimore, whether you need someone who can handle things with kid gloves or with a more aggressive approach she is capable.
Most recently, we utilized Leslie's services to create and update Trust and Power of Attorney documents. Ensuring a good healthy relationship is maintained between family members where expectations, protection, support, safety, security, peace of mind, health and welfare is concerned can be tricky and a little daunting; but, is extremely important and may be facilitated through legal tools. Leslie provided first rate service by listening very well to what we thought we wanted to achieve through these documents, and then challenging us to think about what we were asking for by discussing the merits, virtues, flaws, and weaknesses to ensure we would get the expected outcome. At the end of the visit, she provided us with documents and instructions that together help us achieve our needs and goals. Leslie's knowledge and understanding of the law is a tremendous asset in these areas. She is completely professional, very personable, and her staff is equally so. That is why we recommend her.

You couldn't imagine the heartfelt gratitude I have towards you and for that, Thank you so much for helping me.
I hired Leslie for a complicated child custody case. From the beginning she was proactive, responsive and kept me very well informed. Her knowledge and just general compassion and support was crucial during that very emotionally taxing time. The result of the case was perfect and even though it was a bit out of Leslie's comfort zone (in a different county) she handled everything professionally and as quickly and efficiently as possible. I would recommend her in a heartbeat!
My mother died in Oct. 2011. We were unable to locate her health directive and her will so the we weren't positive of her desires. My husband and I had decided we didn't want anyone guessing about our wishes so we decided to seek out an Estate Planning attorney. We met with Leslie and immediately felt comfortable. The first meeting with her she took the time to discuss health directives, power of attorney, wills, trusts and why in certain circumtances you would want to go through probate. Through this discussion we decided what was best for our situation. We then met a week later to go through all the documents. She answered our questions (sometimes twice ) to make sure we understood everything in each document. We consider Leslie our Attorney and will continue to use her services and recommend her to our families and friends.

Leslie Bottimore is one of the finest people I've ever had the privilege to work with. She is passionate for her work and was compassionate towards me as her client. She guided the case through the last 18 months with a cool and calm that was remarkable. There were times I wanted to quit, but she always guided me in the right direction. My personal life took a downturn during this period and when it did she was there to help. Giving me information on who to talk to, etc. Leslie followed up during these tough time to ensure I was O.K. We had gone to mediation and had an agreement, but my spouse relented. Leslie worked tirelessly through the next four weeks including weekends to broker an agreement that prevented us from going to trial. I could not have been more satisfied with the outcome. It was amazing. Leslie is a complete professional from the way she dresses to the way she presented herself in court. She's the best.
