I hired Leslie and her team and that is what they are is a team to help me with my separation from my wife. Never going through this before they took the time to take me through the process from cradle to the grave. They wanted to make sure I was making the right choice for me whether I got divorced or not and I really appreciated that step. I will always be grateful to Leslie and her team!

I hired Leslie to help me with my Divorce proceedings.
She was very professional and advised me properly in every way. She helped me get through the process quickly and proficiently. I have already recommended her to a friend and he is just as impressed with her services.

Ms. Loftus was referred to me by two completely unrelated acquaintances as the best family law attorney in the area. After working with Ms. Loftus, I would absolutely agree. She knows the system, handles herself very professionally and is very understanding and kind. Ms. Loftus is actually the 3rd lawyer I hired. After a very long and difficult paternity judgement with 2 previous lawyers that seemed to get in the mud and run up charges rather than focusing on what was best; I was very leery of hiring another attorney. I just didn’t want to go through another ordeal like I just went through but I needed someone to handle my petition for relocation. When I first met her, she was prepared, listened very carefully and was very sympathetic to my situation. It was a wonderful and refreshing experience! On many occasions when I would worry about false statements and misinformation, she would refocus me with simple statements such as “I am not worried about what he is saying, just focusing on the facts and achieving the end goal.” The end goal with Ms. Loftus was always what was best for my children and me. She kept me very focused and positive. Before the relocation hearings, she was thoroughly prepared and made sure I was very prepared. It made the entire process significantly less stressful. In addition, she was empathetic to the circumstances and how I was feeling as we progressed. I very highly recommend Ms. Loftus if you need a lawyer for family law.

I endorse this lawyer. Leslie is an extremely thorough and knowledgeable attorney. She is wonderful at helping clients through the minefields of divorce and working towards a settlement or representing the clients in court, when necessary.
