Very seldom in today's society do legal professionals promise big, then deliver the same. Leslie O'Neal does both with an attention to detail unsurpassed in her profession. She does so with no superfluous billing or unnecessary dialogue just to generate an invoice.
While going through a lengthy divorce that required re-educating many attorneys along the way due to my ex-wife hiring new representation every time she'd get an invoice, Leslie did so with a steadfast, balanced and well articulated approach that regardless of who she was opposite in the courtroom, the feeling of her presence was insurmountable. After wining custody of my children in 2010, Leslie was hired to right size finances through a support modification after some life style changes had taken place with my ex-wife.
Leslie not only got my child support tripled, she held my obstinate ex to the fire and had 100% of my legal bills reimbursed. Yes I said 100% - $11,000 in legal bills had to be paid by the defendant for making me spend my children's college money on a frivolous pursuit of what is right to begin with. I glanced over during trial to see Leslie preparing her closing notes on her legal pad and watched as she delivered her closing, checking off her bullet points for the judge's consideration of every point she wanted to make. I instantly began to feel every dime invented in this 15 month journey was worth it and when the judge delivered her decision, I was in shock for a second. What lawyer recovers 100% of your legal fees? Mine does!!
Leslie O'Neal and her firm are what valuable legal counsel is all about. I was always educated on the right path to take and never had a request for feedback, a call, or a question go unanswered. This firm is one that you can proceed from a mediation with an unknown path ahead confident the very best representation is on your team. You've made the right choice. Leslie is the paradigm by which any attorney should follow in Family Law.

I met Leslie at a networking seminar in Atlanta. We met up a few weeks later to discuss business, and we started talking about my divorce. After an hour and a half, I was ready to fire my current lawyer and retain Leslie. She is well versed in the law, and brought to my attention things that could change. Additionally, she gave me something my previous attorney did not... and that was Hope.
During the whole process, Leslie was optimistic in my case, and never wavered in expressing we had a strong case. Her and her staff went above and beyond in preparing and filing everything in a timely manner. Her courtroom behavior is something to revel. She is professional. and at the same time, a lawyer you never want going against you. I have recommended her to several people, and will continue to recommend her in years to come. Thank you Leslie for everything!!

I asked an attorney for a referral in a family law case. He provided me with 2 names. I asked which one was the pit bull. He said Leslie.
We can’t say enough good things about Leslie. She was professional and honest at every turn. She is the kind of lawyer who 'gives it to you straight', not a 'yes man'. If you are asking for the wrong things, she tells you. She helps advise you. Her style in court is confident and on point. She's has a spunky personality that endeared her to our judge. To call her a 'wolf in sheep's clothing' sounds silly but it fits her perfectly. She is brilliant and quick on her feet, while being a true 'southern lady' poised and polite. She was prepared and presented our case skillfully. She is the kind of lawyer you want on your side, not across the table. She was so brilliant at expressing our case that we got MORE than we asked for.
