Family Law Attorney
Leah has been proficient in her representation on my case and truly represented mine and my children's interest. It is hard to find someone who truly will fight for you, your rights and do it in such a professional manner. I would recommend her to anyone looking for a family law attorney.

Great law firm
I acquired the services of Leah Mayersohn law regarding some funds that were left in escrow at the time of closing due to some open permits that were not dealt with by seller before our closing day. The seller and I had ageed on terms on the day we closed that the seller would handle and close open permits on the property within a certain time frame and under certain circumstances that were explained in the escrow agreement contract . The Seller failed to comply with escrow agreement terms in timely manner and refused to released funds in escrow per our contract agreement. Leah Mayersohn reviewed my case and was able to get funds released to me after the seller refused to abide by contract agreement.

Ms. Mayersohn is a skilled and knowledgeable attorney as well as being compassionate and kind. Her staff is also very knowledgeable and helpful. You can reach Ms. Mayersohn 24/7 which is important if a situation develops where you need help immediately. I have had a relationship with her and her firm for over 4 years and she has always reassured me during my divorce.

Fantastic Attorney
I hired Leah Mayersohn to help me with a federal criminal case. She did an amazing job and was able to ensure that I wasn't indicted.

Extremely helpful, knowledgeable and responsive.
I ran into difficulty with a friend, who informed me by text that he was in some trouble and expected to be arrested. The friend then disappeared and I was left worried about what might have happened. I contacted Leah Mayersohn on a weekend and she responded immediately. Within several hours Leah carried out an extensive search and was able to confirm that my friend had not been arrested. Further she was helpful in suggesting other actions we might take to locate my friend. Leah stayed in touch with me until my friend was located several days later. If I or a friend run into any future difficulties, I would contact Leah again, and I can unreservedly recommend her.

Phenomenal attorney
There are many Law Firms out there but the question should be is there a Law Firm that would be right for me? The answer lies with The Mayersohn Law Group. When challenges are presented that can define or change someone's life that's where you'll find confidence and trust with this distinguished law group. From a personal experience, I can honestly tell you that at times, I feel like I'm not discussing important matters with an attorney but rather a family member. Leah has always been there for me whenever I needed her assistance and I always would find solace knowing that she is on my side. During my time of adversity, I felt safe knowing that I not only had a competent lawyer on my side but also a person who at times I feel like treats me like a family member. Leah takes each and every matter seriously and with pride. I have witnessed her amazing work since the first day I set foot in her office not knowing what to expect. If there was a weakness in Leah then it would be the fact that she personally cares too much about her client. Leah has a proven phenomenal track record and don't take my word for it but take the first step in setting up a consultation with her and then experience it for yourself.
