Jessica is the absolute best! Knowledgeable, caring, efficient, and dedicated.
Jessica recently assisted my family and I in a stepparent adoption for my daughter. Because of some unfortunate dynamics surrounding the biological father, I was extremely nervous going into it. Truth be told, I hindered in taking this step for many years solely out of fear. But because of Jessica, my family has been changed forever. Not only did she provide all of the legal support and knowledge necessary to make this experience successful, she offered emotional support and reassurance. After working with Jessica, I can confidently say that she genuinely cares about her clients, and if she gets the chance to represent you, will take you and your entire family sincerely into account. From start to finish, she handled our case brilliantly. With meticulous preparation and purpose, she collected and included all of the facts, continuously anticipating every element possible. She communicated with us regularly, which assisted tremendously in the alleviation of our anxiety. The day of our final hearing was outstanding. Jessica was so utterly thorough in her presentation, there was little to be questioned. She presented our case so appropriately, confirming all the reasons it should have been granted, that it was! My family is forever thankful for Jessica’s commitment to us, and how deeply her efforts have impacted us for the rest of our lives.

Amazing!!
Wow...where do I even begin....Jessica Laleh has been nothing but a blessing! I was down and out on my luck, lost ,scared and confused. I went through a really bad divorce years ago which caused me to lose everything and most importantly custody of my son...I had no direction of what to do or what attorney to even trust at this point after many failed attempts to get my son back. That's when I hired Jessica Laleh, I was living out of state at the time but I had faith that she would turn this around and hit a homerun so I can be reunited with my son back in Miami. It wasnt easy at all but she made me feel comfortable, at ease, not stressed because I knew she was working around the clock trying to make it happen. There was times I wanted to give up because it got really really tough but she always remained confident and supportive and never gave up on me. She worked on this for over a year through ups and downs and look...She got me home finally after not being able to see my son for almost 5 years. I am the happiest dad on Gods green earth! I see my son every other weekend and speak to him everyday and enjoy the holidays and birthdays with him! Jessica Laleh is not just any Attorney, she does her job with assertiveness and doesnt hold back! My heart is full and cant thank you enough for what you did for me. I hope you keep changing lives you sure changed mine! I also want to thank Dennis Koltun and your office staff Brian, Lily for also being supportive!! All you dads out there I am living proof that you should never stop fighting for your kids!! Anything is possible with an attorney like Jessica Laleh!!!

An Angel of the Road
Jessica has been a blessing. She was instrumental on preventing my children's relocation to a far away country. Her commitment, superior analytical and strategic skills, hard work, and impeccable ethical standards were all factors that ensured a great outcome. She was absolutely loyal throughout the way, but would also tell me when my expectations were unreal and would keep a reality check on everything. That made me even more confortable from the beginning, because I knew I was working with a very rational, and thorough individual. She definitely demonstrates superior communication skills that not only are very valuable in the court room, but also on your day-to-day interaction with her. I am, and will always be, very thankful to Jessica Laleh, Dennis Koltun, and their law firm for the results, their excellent service, and the care and loyalty in which they handled me as a client. I dealt with other lawyers prior to her and can guarantee that she stands way above them.

Thorough, Efficient and Insightful!
Jessica helped me through my divorce process and gave me incredibly accurate and useful advice, as well we walked me step-by-step through the process. I don't know how I could have done it without her. Forever grateful for her guidance in helping me start a new life on the best foot.

Excellent Lawyer.
Jessica was extremely helpful and patient throughout my divorce, which lasted several months. Even when dealing with situations that could have seemed "ridiculous" in any context, she remained calm and helped me navigate the process. Additionally, she was empathetic and always responded promptly to my questions and concerns.

Jessica Laleh
Jessica is a great lawyer. She handled my divorce case in a very professional and friendly manner and tried to remove all the stress from going through this. She was extremely helpful explaining all the minor details, working with me through all the stages of my divorce case and the court procedures and she was always there for me when I needed - even took the time off her family dinner to answer some urgent questions that I had. I would strongly recommend you to work with Jessica if you are looking for a strong divorce attorney.

Perfect choice!
I called 5 practices and they were the only ones that called me immediately where the rest took 2-3 days to get back to me & several voice msgs. Jessica is amazing! She's super thorough, detailed, knowledgeable and efficient as well as thoughtful & human. She is both compassionate & passionate about her profession. She is an excellent attorney & the Judge appointed to my case pointed it out as well by saying that she spoils their office with her professionalism & efficiency. He went as far as saying they wish they had more attorneys like Jessica. I made an excellent choice in choosing Jessica to represent me and my child.

If you want positive results, Call Jessica!
I found Jessica after having an extremely bad experience with my first hired attorney. A family friend referred her firm to me. She is a great listener and catches everything. Has a great memory. She knows her stuff and is not an attorney that is just out to get your money. She values her law degree and it comes through 100% in her work. She always got back to me with any questions I had in a timely manner. I was always in the loop. I would give her 10 stars if I could. I'm sure I will continue to seek her guidance on other matters in the future as well. I got to her office lost with no idea what to do next in regards to my divorce, I had already been in the process for a year with no results and it took Jessica only about 3 months to get me divorced! Right in time for the new year! She is very professional and I have nothing but good things to say about her. I would recommend her to anyone seeking legal guidance.

I wish I never left her!
You will not find another attorney who is as hard working, honest, smart(street and book) and detailed oriented as Jessica. What really sets her apart from the rest for me was her willingness to listen to my questions and explain her answers. She is without question an asset to anyone looking for legal representation in the family courts.

Excellent attorney!
I was so lucky to have this firm represent me. I believe any attorney can pay a good amount of money to be named one of the top attorneys and that is why reviews nowadays are worth so much more than just a google search. I am so greatful for the service of Jessica T. Laleh. She is a very communicative lawyer, very professional, prompt, knowledgeable, and understanding. Jessica is a fighter and will not give up any argument. I was the respondent in my case. My daughter's father wanted to fight for more time with our daughter (after having the same schedule for 4 years), not pay me any child support, not have to pay for her current school and a few other things. Well lets just say that things did not go his way at all. In the beginning I was so worried about everything and stressed out but as soon as the process started she made me feel so much more relaxed and confident. I sincerely appreciate the professional and caring job that Jessica did for me. She is one of the few attorneys that keeps the law honest =)

I am very grateful for the work Jessica has done. She is very detailed, professional, diligent and human. She was available 24/7. I had many problems and she always had a solution. She worked very hard with my visitation and child support issues. It was not an easy case. Jessica did not show any weakness and she fought my case effectively. Without her I would have never been able to be with son. God has blessed me to have found an attorney like Jessica.

Very Pleased With All Services
I was treated with great respect from the moment I walked into the office to the last trial date. The service given was comendable down to the minor details. I was never left out of the loop at anytime during the proceedings. Any questions I needed answered I was always able to reach Ms. Laleh and have them answered. She was quite helpful throughout the proceedings down to the last trial day. I highly reccomend her.
