You are going to read this review and wonder why someone would take the time to write this much about an attorney that they hired to do a job for them, and the answer is, because they impacted my life in such a way that I know God must have directed me to them.
First, I am a single father. I was unsatisfied with the custody arrangement I was in and I decided I would go back to court for a modification. This was a tall order. I work with prestigious lawyers regarding business, both domestically and internationally and I asked for advice on finding the right lawyer for this uphill battle. Their recommendations led me to Gwendolyn McLeod at Haspel & McLeod in Frederick. Their office is conveniently across the street from the courthouse steps. When I walked into her office and went through the scenario with her and her team, they immediately took the enormous pile of concern and pain that I walked in with, that was breaking my back, and they put it on their capable shoulders. I left knowing I had a chance and I felt empowered; a single father fighting for his kids, and I felt empowered.
It has been nearly a year and half after walking into their office, because of several court delays. I walked out of the courthouse after a fierce battle with a ruling that I could only have dreamed of; full physical and legal custody of my children. I literally walked into their office after the trial was over and cried with her as we called my family to deliver the incredible news.
I have never seen a more competent and fearless attorney in my life. She is fierce...I mean intelligently and purposefully FIERCE in action. The emotion I felt as she did her work in the courtroom had me pinching myself because I was so overwhelmed at how she controlled the room. She respects and is given respect. She has a wonderful team that works with her to support the process and leaves no stone unturned, which is what you need when you take on a fight of this importance.
I have recommended and will recommend Gwendolyn McLeod to anyone who wants a fighting chance to really win. That's it .... and hopefully she will read this and hear me say it again, "Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!" I simply can't say it enough.

I would highly recommend Gwen. She is an excellent lawyer in terms of her knowledge, as well as, her compassion. She fought for everything I wanted and won!! I'm very glad that she was my lawyer and not my ex-husband's!

If you are a potential client with concerns about children, there’s no better attorney in Maryland then Gwen McLeod. She is friendly, confident (but not blustery), trustworthy, ethical and accessible. Before trial, you don’t want to be the subject of one of her depositions and I was certainly glad I wasn’t being cross-examined by her! I appreciated most that she won’t offer or promise anything she can’t deliver and during the most stressful moments (and there were many), she would remind me of what was most important and bring me back down to earth.
