Got my Juveniles Case Dismissed
Attorney Leeds was very professional. I was referred to him by a friend of the family and he took my sons case and fought hard and got it thrown out. In my mind i wanted to avoid juvenile detention for my son because as we all know children make poor choices and mistakes from time to time, so I was hoping for a plea of probation but Attorney Leeds exceeded my expectations and got my child's case thrown out. I could never thank him enough

Fighting cases with the courage of a tiger....
Attorney Leeds has represented me several time. Each time he was hard fighting as an advocate, non stop not being deterred for my justice. Each time the verdict was ruled in my favor. Thank Mr. Leeds

A very good lawyer
He fought hard for the unjust conduct I experienced in my former workplace. Mr. Leed's listened attentively to my situation and took the right action. He helped me reach a settlement I was satisfied with.

Great Criminal Defense Attorney
Mr. Jacques Leeds is the real deal. I was so nervous going into my trial because I thought it was an unbeatable case but Mr. Leeds assured me he’d win no matter what. He delivered on his promise and my case was dismissed!!!

Very Professional
I came to this Lawyer to help me with my Child support case and he was very informative and kept me in the loop with how things was going. I loved his professionalism and accuracy that he showed, if I ever need a lawyer again I would def use him.

Good but had a few issues
Mr. Leeds was able to get an additional month of severance for me when I was recently terminated due to restructuring. However, it took a while for me to start getting that severance, meanwhile Mr. Leeds had already collected his fee, which I paid out of my pocket in full. After he collected his fee, it seemed that he didn't want to respond to me. I was trying to confirm when my payments would start, but he didn't initially respond (he did, later), and I got no response from the second email. He was the one in contact with my employer so I had to rely on him to give me information. He did follow up on an issue with a notebook and I appreciated that. He was OK, I wish he had talked to me a bit more about my case.

Legal shield referral and / OFCCP approval to seek an attorney.
My 1st time calling this firm the guy name Sean (my apologies if I spelled your name wrong ) but omg he was a bit Curt it’s sad . I don’t understand legal shield they referred me but the way he answered the phone was as if I was calling his home, and like I knew him. Dear Heart I’m a honorable disabled Veteran was looking for some help from OFCCP and DOJ / EEOC a very serious matter — you said you don’t take cases but you didn’t even listen nor took the ID number associated with the legal Shield Case maybe they should delete your services. That scary , he was rude so I hung up and called back because I couldn’t believe it like is this a law firm for real laughing but for real really—his response was like a just because they referred you doesn’t mean we have to take you. Well Sean Thank you baby cause you saved me some coins$$$$$ my feelings was a bit hurt but imma be ok. Yikes shocked…

Response from Jacques Leeds March 9, 2022
First, I would like to point out that this is a potential client. This review is not from an actual client. I had an initial free phone consultation with this individual. She informed me that she had a constructive discharge case on her hands. I politely informed her that our firm does not handle constructive discharge cases. This is when she got upset and combative. She hung up on me. Then, she proceeded to call back and badger me because I informed her that we could not help her with her case. I believe that she was under the impression that since she was a legal shield member that I was obligated to take her case. I explained to her that I was not obligated to take her case just because she was a legal shield member. I do want to thank her for her service because she is a veteran. Good luck to you ma'am.

Former Client
This attorney is a true scam. The other reviews are not legitimate. I hired him to represent me and he ran off with the retainer I paid him because of a dispute over a deposition. He should not be trusted.
Response from Jacques Leeds March 9, 2022
I've had several issues with this former client. He filed a grievance with the State Bar of Texas against me, which was completely dismissed. He has also filed a small claims case against me which will be dismissed and I will be able to file to recover my costs from him because the lawsuit is a nuisance and a waste of time. After I explained to him that a deposition was not appropriate in his criminal case, he would not believe me and kept insisting on taking the complaining witnesses's deposition. The Judge also explained to him that a deposition would not be possible in his case. This client continually would not let me do my job. He actually has a current balance with me for all the work I put into his case. I will seek to recover that balance in my counterclaim in the unnecessary lawsuit he filed against me. I will update this response after his lawsuit against me is complete.
