Best Attorney I have ever dealt with!
I have had to deal with many attorneys in my life and Leslie is by far the best attorney. I have never had an attorney be more responsive, informative, patient, honest, and caring. Leslie was there every step of the way and showed compassion in a unique situation that was very difficult. If I ever have another matter Leslie will be the one I call.

Amazing Lawyer
I have been dealing with a unreal amount of stress with my ex wife. When I reached out to Leslie she was right away wanting to put me at ease, knowing that she was here to help me not just wanting a check. I have hired her two different times and both times she was very fast to help me. I have two cases in two states and any of my custody cases in Arkansas will be handed by Mrs. Copeland she is who I trust with my daughters best interest. Thank you Mrs. Leslie for everything you did for my family.

AWESOME RESULTS
I had already been through 6 different lawyers in my custody case. Each of them never really caring what I wanted. Leslie was exactly the opposite! She turned everything around in my favor when I had decide that this would be the last attempt. She restored what little faith i had in the judicial system back. Anytime I communicate with her, she gets back to me quickly. She is very proactive and in my case, I hadn't been in touch with her for awhile because I was busy, and she contacted me to to remind me of certain things I needed to get done for her as I am a very busy person. She also pays attention to details to help further get what is best for you. I will continue to work with Leslie and highly recommend her to anyone looking for an effective and organized attorney.

Effective, organized and personable attorney
Leslie is an amazing attorney to work with. Anytime I communicate with her, she gets back to me quickly, many times in the same day and hour. She is very proactive and organized with her cases. In my case, I hadn't been in touch with her for awhile because I was busy, and she contacted me to schedule a phone call to catch up on what was going on. Along with this, she is very personable and shows that she truly cares about her clients. She also pays attention to details to help further get what is best for you. In my case, I was divorcing my ex who had been incredibly difficult and antagonistic about everything. We also have two children. She helped ensure that I got the custody that would be best for the children. Also, due to her attention to detail, she took action so that the child support was increased. I will continue to work with Leslie and highly recommend her to anyone looking for an effective, organized, and personable attorney.

Best Lawyer in Northwest Arkansas
I had already been through 3 different lawyers in my divorce and custody case. Each of them were willing to negotiate easliy with the other side while never really caring what i wanted or about the best interest of my child whose father was abusive. Leslie was exactly the opposite! She turned everything around in my favor when i had no faith left in any lawyer. She gave me that faith back. That there are lawyers out there who actually care about their clients. I truly believe she is the best lawyer around. I wouldn't recommend anyone else!

One of the best!
Leslie fought diligently for me on a custody case that ultimately had the best outcome I could hope for given the circumstances. She was a very good communicator and always responded quickly to any issues or questions I had along the way. It was a pleasure to work with. I never felt like I was alone in this process and I would highly recommend her to anyone needing legal help with divorce or custody issues. I will definitely hire her in the future if I need further legal representation.

Above and beyond the call of duty!
Leslie is a caring and compassionate lawyer that takes the time to fully understand your case before giving suggestions on how to proceed. She is a strong advocate for Father's rights and was able to ensure that my needs and wants were not taken for granted in my case. I had met with another highly recommended attorney in the area previously who had not put in half the effort that Leslie put in during my first consultation! Leslie provided suggestions and recommendations of how the divorce would go whether I chose uncontested or contested divorce and even gave suggestions and edits for the divorce decree to keep my future options open. She kept very prompt communication through telephone and/or email contact. I fully recommend her 100% and have already passed her name onto friends and family in similar situations! I highly suggest that if you are looking for a family law attorney in Washington or Benton County to take the time to consult with Leslie for yourself!!!

I highly recommend Leslie Copeland!
A divorce can be difficult. It can be emotional, stressful and down right miserable. I am so grateful that I hired Leslie for mine. She lessened the stress load on me by making the process a smooth one. Her knowledge, expertise and communication skills are top notch, easy to understand and a joy to work with. Hopefully I won't need her for another divorce in the future, but I will definitely hire her next time I need an attorney. Thank you Leslie, you are much appreciated!

The calm in the storm
Contacted Leslie to assist with a potentially very messy divorce. She was on the ball during every stage, created creative opportunities for success, and kept me apprised of everything along the way. Courtroom prep was excellent. Highly recommend.

Excellent reprentation
I hired Leslie to represent me in a child custody, protection order, and establishing paternity. We had two court dates and the second we came to a sound agreement without even seeing the judge. She thoroughly walks you through the process, communicates very well with you about what is going on, and responds to you in a very quick manner.

Leslie was wonderful when she handled my divorce and the custody of my son. Anytime anything new came up she would answer back quickly and get it taken care. She was also very caring and compassionate when it came to my case.
