Leslie Langbein won our case for us!
The best thing about Leslie is that not only is she great at what she does, she’s also a good person. She has gone to great lengths to helping us, even to the extent of personal sacrifice. Yes, there are attorneys who don’t fit the horror stories you hear , and Leslie Langbein is one of them. I thank God every day she is representing us! Since Day 1, I’ve known we were in the best hands. Leslie is a powerhouse attorney, just the kind of person you want on your side. Leslie had so much experience in the same type of battle we were involved in, and right from the outset she knew precisely what we were up against. Every meeting with her was like talking to a trusted friend, one who made it her personal mission to defending us. Since Day 1, I’ve known we were in the best hands. Leslie is a powerhouse attorney, just the kind of person we wanted on OUR side. I always felt a sence of peace after each meeting with her. Thank You.
