Ms. McLeod did an absolutely fantastic job for me. She helped drive a negotiation that cleaned up all kinds of incompetence and open holes left by my last attorney. Ms. McLeod was incredibly well prepared, had her arguments worked out and brought great closure which got me way more time with my daughter. My ex absolutely hated her. She was always professional, but she was no non-sense and able to call out her schemes and games. She was a sharp tack and totally shut down my ex's schemes. I give Ms. McLeod my endorsement one-hundred million times over. I so wish I had her as my attorney the first go round, but she did a lot to make a bad deal more tolerable with respect to access time with my daughter which was my number one concern.
If you have sense enough to start off with a touch cookie, then this is the attorney you want to hire. I started off with a nice guy - trying to be civil, and ended up putting myself and my access to my daughter at extreme jeopardy. Divorce is war. As much is it is not in my natural grain and faith do be that way, you have to come at it hard. Another attorney gave me advice that I wish I had listened to. It's always easier to be nice later than it is to start off nice and then get tough later.
Ms. McLeod is totally a nice person, but she will be tough when it comes to protecting your interests and helping you to think clearly.
