Legal Counsel from Caring People
I hired Solaris Law Group in 2014 to help my former wife and I sort out a rather complicated and emotional mediation agreement and relocation-parenting plan. The thing that I am most grateful for today is the emotional guidance that I received through this very difficult process. Both my lawyer and the mediator were very interested in “keeping it out of the court” if at all possible, and that’s what we accomplished at the end of just one day. The Solaris team is organized, capable, and highly approachable. There were times that I was given helpful direction from other members of the team, who were not directly assigned to me. Then, as now, there is a feeling of family that was so welcome and relieving. More than one year later, I am able to call into the office and be remembered by my voice and first name. They are real people who really care about their clients, and I am thankful to have found them.

Fair and very professional
Leisa is a great attorney. Very professional and very fair with her clients. She doesn't promise what she can't deliver. I would recommend her to anyone looking to resolve a custody matter

An Excellent and Compassionate Lawyer
I recently hired Leisa Wintz of the Solaris Law Group to represent me in a family law case. Ms. Wintz came highly recommended by a colleague of mine and now I understand why. Ms. Wintz approaches law with a rare mix of compassion and pragmatism. She honestly seemed to want to achieve the best resolution for my family and to that end, she never simply told me what she thought I wanted to hear-- only what I needed to hear to make informed decisions. Ms. Wintz took the time to explain various scenarios and the potential cost and possible outcome of pursuing each legal avenue. Her advice was always about staying focused on the reasons I had hired her in the first place: The welfare of my son. The staff at the Solaris Law Group was equally attentive, candid and efficient-- always available to answer my questions and to lighten the mood with gentle humor when things got stressful. If you are looking for an honest, capable and compassionate lawyer to help you navigate the complexities of family law, I highly recommend Leisa Wintz and the Solaris Law Group.

Amazing
I had a wonderful with Leisa and her paralegal. They treated me and my case with respect and helped me through a difficult time. Phone calls and emails were answered promptly and paperwork was quickly expedited. Leisa showed me that I had options that would work best for me and my children. I would recommend Leisa and her team to anyone WITHOUT any hesitation.

Saved from bogus Restraining Order
I highly recommend the expertise of the Leisa Wintz and the Solaris Law Group. They saved me from spurious charges by my former landlord. I was a wreck when I received the injunction petition, but Leisa and the Solaris Team approached my situation with professional attention and personal consideration. The retainer was more than reasonable for the services rendered, while the peace of mind that was granted after I was liberated by their deft legal skills was—and is—immeasurable!

Phenomenal
I was not sure who turn to for a legal support during a challenging time of my life. Fortunately for me, Leisa was referred to me through a friend and hiring her was the best thing I could have done for myself. Trust me when I say that you want Leisa by your side when entering into a mediation or hearing. Her in-depth knowledge of law, her skill level and confidence clearly surpassed the opposing lawyer. I was so impressed on how well she listened to all of me needs and her advice was invaluable to me. I could not have asked for better representation. I have much gratitude and I would HIGHLY recommend her to any family or friend.

Trustworthy lawyer!
Ms. Wintz is very knowledgeable, if she was not in the office when I called she would respond ASAP. She would help me understand everything the law would say about child custody and child support. Her staff is very friendly as well. From the moment you have your first conversation with her you feel you are in good hands.

Awesome, caring, intelligent attorney
Going through a domestic dispute with children can be a heart-wrenching experience. Leisa proved through her tough-mindedness with opposing counsel and excellent knowledge regarding such issues to be a great help and support. She was very realistic and never told me what I WANTed to hear regarding the case, but fought for me the whole way and created realistic expectations with me as a client. One of the best.

family law
Ms. Wintz is highly professional and much more knowledgeable in family law and domestic violence law than any other attorney that I have worked with and her presentation to the judge and her representation was exceptional.

Completely Useless.
Stay away from her and her firm. No communication and if you inquire they charge you for reading the email. Leisa did absolutely nothing for ten months. Then refused to speak with me until I paid her $5000. Apparently family doesn’t matter. You’d be better off representing yourself than wasting money on this useless firm.

Unprofessional and inconsiderate
I hired and paid Ms. Wintz a $3,500 retainer to help me with my divorce. She spoke with me on the phone twice for about 45 minutes and told me she never reviewed my file. 2 weeks before mediation she passed me off to a colleague, her covid shot conflicted with my mediation. I found a different attorney. She refused to refund my $3,500.

Represents money, not her client
My ex-husband got everything. My ex-husband won everything he wanted. My lawyer only represented me to just to allow me to move out of the state. That wasn't much of a win since he was already saying he would let me. He was already willing to change the visitation schedule to match my schedule. I could have done all that myself, but I hired Leisa to help me win something. I got screwed over by my ex, and by my lawyer. She didn't even represent me. She wouldn't answer any of my questions. She scheduled a pre-mediation phone meeting, and she never contacted me. I called, and was told she would call back. I never heard from her. She knew I didn't have a job. So she only "represented" me to charge me more money than she was worth. Look somewhere else for a lawyer. Apparently my ex's parents paid for a great lawyer who can weasel his way for your benefit. Leisa Wintz will only weasel you of your money.

We are sorry that you were disappointed with our services. As you can see from our reviews this is not the norm. Unfortunately, your expectations were not reasonable and as a result you were disappointed. As to taking your money - it is an interesting perspective given you left owing me money. Hopefully, life has gotten back on track for you.
