I am from Nevada and needed a good lawyer in Texas for a DUI. I was refered to her by a friend. She was a tremendous help in getting my case resolved. It was a borderline case to begin with but they arrested me anyways. Being from out of state I felt that the prosecution was being overly hard on me, but Ms. Love fought my case vigorously and got the case dismissed. I never thought it would be possible. I guess her years she spent in the DA's office really shined through. With her vast knowledge of DUI law and her knowing the prosecutor in the case, she was able to convince him that if we went to trial (which I was fullly prepared to do in her good hands) he had a mediocre case at best. Prosecutors don't like losing cases.... She is one in a million!

When your liberty and freedom are at stake, you need an experienced lawyer who will fight hard for your rights and defend your good name.
Miss Love is an experienced criminal attorney who has had the advantage of working as a prosecutor and now as a defense attorney.
From the first day that I retained Miss Love as my attorney, I felt at ease with her. She was always honest with me on what to expect. I was facing many years of incarceration, but with her experience and knowledge of the law, she was able to get my sentence reduced from years to months.
I highly recommend Miss Love.

I rarely write reviews online, but I felt that the service provided by Leigh Love was nothing less than outstanding and definitely deserves a review. She was extremely professional throughout the entire process as well as thorough, thoughtful, and extremely personable. I especially appreciated that she kept me informed and up to date on everything that was happening, and quick to respond to any questions or concerns that I threw at her. Either way, I definitely did not feel like I was dealing with my "attorney" but rather someone who was just chill and understanding. Leigh is readily available in person, by phone or email anytime you have a question.
In addition, it was very clear that Leigh's driving force in pursuit of justice on my behalf was not monetary. She is affordable and understanding that I needed a payment plan. From a perspective of accountability, honesty and reality, total dismissal of my charges was not likely but Leigh chiseled away at the 1st Degree Felony charge I was being accused of and got it reduced down to a misdemeanor. She negotiated with the DA to minimize the punishment that I otherwise would've faced. I'll always have to live with any and all consequences for my actions, but Leigh surely helped me avoid the impact of what could have easily been a catastrophic blow to my young adult life.
I couldn't have asked for better representation and I'd highly recommend her to anyone.

I was pulled into a bad situation that I never thought I would escape. I was being charged with a felony for defending myself on my own property! I was facing a criminal record and time behind bars. How was I going to take care of my family? How was I going to get out of this mess?
Shannon Love changed all that. She took my case and worked everything out for me. Now, I'm not facing time, I don't have a felony on my record, and I still get to see my family everyday. This woman had to have been sent by the Lord to take my case and set me free. I definitely recommend this lawyer to anybody, especially people who get caught up in some nonsense that can devastate your life.
God sent this woman to defend me and help me win my case. Aggravated assault with a deadly weapon is no joke. If you get this charge or some other major felony, you need some good representation. I thought I was gone with the agg assault charge, but Shannon Love did her thing and got me straight. People around me even thought I was done. Just remember that if you get an aggravated assault charge like I did, or any other felony, it's not over until it's over. Get Shannon Love on your team; trust me on this. She will make a way out of no way.
