From the first time I met Jim, I felt that this was a man I could trust with the most important part of my life - my daughter's future. I have enjoyed working closely with him throughout this process, even though the divorce has been one of the most difficult experiences of my life. When you go through a difficult divorce, it helps to be able to feel that you are able to communicate effortlessly with your lawyer and feel that you are both on the same wavelength. He has definitely made this process easier than I thought it could be. Jim's phenomenal experience and attention to detail provided excellent solutions to the many issues which came up during my case.

Mr. Hagler is hands down the best attorney out there. He doesn't just represent you, he helps you threw one of the hardest things in life as a friend and lawyer. He cares about all his clients and he was always there and always answered when I called. Thank you Mr. Hagler for your support, knowledge and advice

I could not have been more fortunate than to have received a recommendation to consult with and hire Jim Hagler. My case was complicated involving a removal petition, and we faced opposition from a wealthy family with a high-powered attorney. Jim was always one step ahead and initiated the exact strategy to get the results we desired: a tolerable financial settlement, a retraction of the removal petition, and a favorable parenting plan.
As is typical for most people in the midst of a marriage breakdown, stress levels run very high and decision making can suffer. Jim was always available via email or phone to prevent any rash decisions from happening that could have negatively affected the settlement. More importantly, I believe that Jim actually cared and was invested in my case.
I highly recommend Jim Hagler. He has the knowledge, strategy, experience and personal touch to help anyone through this difficult experience.

James Hagler is an extremely competent divorce attorney. I hired him to handle my divorce and I was very pleased with his level of attention and accessibility. He has continued to represent me in contentious post-divorce court matters involving child support, visitation, and custody. I recommend him to everyone I know who asks for a divorce attorney who is smart, reasonable, and fair!

I contacted The Law Offices of Jeffery M. Leving to help me get a fair visitation schedule for my son who is in school now and we have a schedule that changes a lot and the father is not flexible. I wanted my son to have some stability and be able to spend time in his own home on school nights and be able to plan vacations, birthday parties, etc. I didn’t want to take the father to court but needed to as it was in the best interest of my son. I met with James Hagler who outlined a clear strategy and even helped me with questions after the consultation. When I went to court Bill Dowling represented me. Both attorneys called me prior to court to explain what would happen and what I can expect as an outcome. After court I was extremely pleased with the results and got a very fair ruling from the judge. I would describe this firm as focused, diligent, and great to work with. I cannot recommend this firm enough! If I could give them 10 stars I would. I know they help a lot of fathers but they help mothers too. Basically if they can help a child they will!

The one mistake I made during my divorce was not hiring the law firm of Jeffery M Leving to handle my case.
I had a pending divorce case after I fired my first attorney who had no idea how to handle divorce case and misrepresenting me.
I met with Mr. Hagler who put me at ease with his expertise and professionalism.
He was in and out of the court room and fought hard for me. He walked me through every stage of my case and always returned my calls when I needed his advice. All of his staff members were all very helpful.
Mr. Hagler will always take that extra step to fight for the best interest of his clients , especially fathers.
I want to thank Mr. Hagler for helping me get through this difficult time during my divorce,for his knowledge ,support and advice.

James Hagler is a terrific, no nonsense lawyer. He handled a very sensitive post divorce matter. After my experience with two previous family lawyers I was shocked that a divorce lawyer of Mr. Haglers caliber existed. He understood the facts, he did not promise to do things that he couldn't deliver, (like the previous lawyers) he told me what a realistic outcome could be, and he went to work. He always returned my calls. I highly recommend him without reservation. I wish there were more lawyers like Mr. Hagler.

I hired Mr. Hagler to help with my custody case. He was amazing in and out of the court room and fought hard for me. He walked me through ever stage of the case and always returned my calls the same day. He has a lot of experts that are part of his team and they were all very helpful. I have had lawyers in the past who were crooks so it is a breath of fresh air to find an attorney who actually knows what he's doing and cares.

James Hagler was the most knowledgeable attorney in the court room every time we went to court. He is no nonsense, he gets results, and he really cared about the wellbeing of my children. I was pleased with the results

Jim was the third lawyer to handle a simple, but ugly divorce. He was outstanding in all areas. In the courtroom he was very professional and was well prepared to go to trial. The trial was scheduled for at least two days and it lasted less than a day. His strategy was excellent and he let my ex's attorney bury herself. It was unfortunate that my ex would not negotiate, she would have gotten a lot more out of me. But when you watch too much Divorce Court, that's what happens. I think she wanted the Judge to admonish me for wanting to divorce her. I ended up with a result that I expected if we went to trial.
