I obtained Larry Leach to gain joint physical and legal custody of my child. During the consultation Larry Leach was positive that due to the circumstances of the case joint custody would be easily obtained. However after the initial retaining fees were paid he seemed to be almost dis-interested in the case. The fees charged by him and his paralegal were outrageous based on the small amount of time he actually dedicated to the case. After three retainer payments he seemed ill prepared and convinced me to settle for less than joint custody even though I had told him on numerous prior occasions that the minimum settlement I would agree to was joint legal custody. To make a long story short the day of the hearing Larry appeared unprepared and I was so nervous I settled for the original deal the opposing attorney offered which I had previously declined multiple occasions. I agreed to this at Larry Leach recommendation. In the end after approximately $6500.00 in attorney fees I gained nothing but two extra days a month visitation and I still have no joint legal or joint physical custody. Buyer beware Larry Leach portrays the appearance of being on your side during initial consultation, but once he receives your payments he appears to lose interest and charges you right down to the staples used to bind the legal paperwork.

Larry has been my divorce attorney since 2003 and has represented me over the past 12 years through my high conflict divorce and years of custody and contempt hearings. Larry and his team are professional and personable. Larry listened to my issues and worked hard for my case. One year I made a huge mistake of signing papers with my ex without consulting with Larry or his team - that was a hard lesson learned and I vowed to always use Larry and his team before making legal decisions regarding my ex. Even though there was a lot of paperwork and documenting on my side to keep track of it helped me gain insight to the reasons we have lawyers. Larry was instrumental in communicating with the therapists and advocates and when positioned in court was very knowledgeable, attentive and relaxed. There were times I wanted Larry to be aggressive like my ex's lawyers however Larry knows darn well what he is doing. Overall, I will continue to depend on Larry and his team.

Larry has been a true professional and has shown his knowledge and expertise in my lengthy divorce. He came highly recommended and I will also refer Larry to anyone that wants solid representation with an objective no nonsense approach.

Mr. Leach is very experienced and extremely knowledgeable, his demeanor in the courtroom is very even keeled and authoritative. In addition to his legal acumen, he is quite compassionate and always willing to help in any way necessary.

Larry Leach is outstanding! I went through a long, horrible divorce. After two pathetic lawyers someone recommended Leach Law to me. Larry is knowledgeable, passionate, experienced, and an all around great guy! The whole team/ staff impressed me after using unprofessional law offices in the past. The paralegal, accounting office manager, office manager are all quality people who you can trust. I wouldn't use anyone else and recommend Larry Leach to anyone needing a solid team behind you in your divorce.

On June 15, 2013, my wife walked away from our marriage. when it became apparent that I needed to make a decision to protect myself, several friends suggested Larry Leach. I did not want a divorce; I did not want to be separated; but when I sat down in his office, Larry asked the questions I needed to hear so that I could make a rational decision. He didn't push divorce nor did he suggest there was a way around the Separation. Larry gave me honest knowledgeable advice and then supported the decision I made. He and his office were there for me every step of the way in availability by phone or email. They explained every step of the process and stuck with me right up to my final decision and divorce decree. Thank You Larry M Leach and Assoc.

His staff is less the organized, informed, and seemed to be unaware of what was infornt of them. I got tierd of being charged try to correct these constant misundersandings and inablity to retain the information I presented them with over and over. There also seemed to be little to no importance placed on my case and needs. it was a very expensive waiting with no action for over a year process. Seriously go somewhere else!

Larry and his team have been very instrumental in helping me and my children in a very difficult time. He has been there when needed and has always given me great legal council. I recommend highly.

The office of Larry Leach is quick to take your retainer, but to get what is left of it is like pulling teeth. I saw an itemized bill. I spoke with him all of 10-15 minutes. I emailed him, he told me he didn't respond to emails, yet I was charged for that all. I was told by the accounting department I wouldn't be charged to talk to the office manager, Patty, yet I was. He recommended a friend to help with Health Insurance, I was charged more each time he talked with his friend. Mr. Leach was very good with the beginning of separation (in 2001) but seems to be getting lax over the years. Go for a younger Attorney.

Larry and his paralegals are so amazing to work with. They actually care about their clients. When I called to get advice when not a client, they were willing to listen and help me in any way they can. I highly recommend them. I felt cared about and in great hands every time working with them.
