She was good in the beginning of my case. But after the first 4-5 months things started to go down hill. I asked her to put in an appeal and she didnt, she didnt set a foundation in my case, she put me in a worse spot at the end when I switched attorney's. I would never recommend her to anyone or use her for any kind of case again. And now shes wanting the rest of the payment of $2000.00 that she didnt even earn. We didnt even get a bill for her in almost a year. Talk about misattorney representation.

I made the mistake of going through my divorce without a lawyer, and for over 10 years my ex took advantage of me both mentally and financially. When she went over the line and physically abused my daughter, I hit my breaking point and finally began searching for a lawyer. I was terrified of court, of my ex, and how much money I was going to have to borrow to pay for proper representation. From the moment I met Ali, those fears began to subside. She was upfront about what I was facing, what she could do to help me, and what the costs could be from the very beginning. I hired her on the spot and it was the best decision of my life! Ms Leonard immediately filed motions in court and absolutely ripped-apart the original custody order. Seeing her in action in the courtroom was nothing short of amazing. She fights hard, and knows exactly how to navigate the legal system to maximize your chances of winning the rights you seek. Within a few short months, I won full custody of my daughter, state-enforced child support, and best of all my ex is no longer a threat to myself or my child. And in terms of cost, she is far more reasonable than I could have ever hoped. If youre truly looking for a seasoned fighter who truly cares about your case and situation, you cannot go wrong with Ali Leonard! She is everything you could hope for in an attorney and more. Should the need ever arise for me in the future, I would go back to her without hesitation.

Ali was my saving grace through a very difficult time. She helped me in every way possible and always put the best interest of my family first. She is compassionate and caring and took a personal interest in my case. No, she didn't always do exactly what I wanted at that moment, but as she knew that my requests/decisions were rash and based on my emotions at the time, she took the time to explain exactly why what I was asking for wasn't feasible and talk me through the situation while offering reasonable alternatives. I live in another county now and still recommend Ali to people in my area. Should I ever be in another situation where legal council is needed, Ali will be my first phone call!
