The voice of reason
Leslie handled me and my divorce beautifully. During a very painful & emotional experience, Leslie kept me on track by reeling me in when my emotions started to get the best of me. She hit me with the truth at every turn and told me what I needed to hear, not what I wanted to hear. I highly recommend her with no reservations whatsoever. Leslie’s the best!!!
