Andy is thorough and communicates clearly and effectively with his clients. He was available when needed for questions or consultations. He offered excellent advice throughout. I would hire him again.

I highly recommend Andy. He did a great job on my case. He always gets back to me within the day, anytime I call. He is very knowledgeable. When dealing with a very difficult situation, it was great to have Andy on my side. He has a huge help! His briefs are very well written. He put my mind at ease by answering all my questions. I could tell that he really cared and put in the extra effort. He worked hard to get the best possible outcome for my son. I am very grateful for Andy and all his help!

I had the most wild and unconventional divorce. It involved retrieving my kids from another state, bringing them back home and then a tooth and nail struggle for custody. Andy was there every step of the way. He helped me file for everything I needed to bring the kids home to Utah, he helped me with so many crazy issues my ex tried to throw into things to complicate the divorce. He had to go to court over 5 times to plead my case to the commissioner and judge. He was aggressive, articulate and knew exactly how to help them see that the best thing for my children was to have me in thier life as much as possible. He never lost a battle for me. I now have my 4 kids, 5 days a week no alimony or child support! I highly recommend Andy Leger to anyone. He will spend whatever time it takes, meet whoever he needs to, will sit down with anyone and will plead your case better to the judge or commissioner better than anyone out there. Words can’t express how happy I am now a year later with my kids and a new life.
Thank you Andy you for saving my family!

I have used Andy for the past 5 years. I have had to hire other lawyers for different things outside of family law and hands down Andy is by far the best lawyer I’ve hired. He has great follow through and will fight to get you the best outcome!

I hired Andy to help me get custody of my daughter and which he did exactly that. Listen to what he tells you to do and it will go well. Worth every penny it cost me nothing but fantastic.

I hired Andy Leger from Cordell Cordell law firm in Salt Lake City to represent me in my divorce case against my ex-wife in 2015. I wanted to hire Christy Robinson, but she wasn't available on a court date for a motion for temporary orders hearing that had already been scheduled by my ex's attorney. At the beginning Andy seemed like an okay lawyer, although he would never give a solid answer to any of my questions. We never had a good strategy as to how to proceed and I honestly feel like he just winged it. He often said we'll have to see what happens. He couldn't give me any estimate as to how much anything would cost if my case if it went to court or what to expect from the judge and commissioner.
The results of my case were as follows:
I hired Andy and Cordell Cordell for a period of about 1 month. He charged $275/hour. I settled at mediation and paid Cordell Cordell $6,300 with an additional retainer fee of $1,800.
I did all of the work myself in my financial declaration which was complete and accurate but it seemed like it back fired on me in mediation. Andy never used it in mediation once when my ex claimed that I stopped supporting her at the end of the marriage and said all manner of false claims against me. He mentioned that I had bank statements to prove otherwise but when it came down to proving it, he couldn't find the bank statements in the financial disclosure paperwork. He was very unprepared at mediation and didn't represent me well at all. I was very clear with him what I what I was looking for in mediation and what I felt was fair. I felt like he had no idea what he was doing and was just rolling with the punches.
I was married to my ex for 7 years and I ended up paying alimony at $1,000 a month for 1 year, and am still paying $500 a month for a second year. After talking with other divorce lawyers after my case had settled, I discovered that paying alimony is normally only awarded in long term marriages of a length of at least 10 years or more. My ex has a higher education than I do and she had already entered her career as a middle school English teacher for 3 years.
He allowed my ex's attorney to turn in her financial disclosures the day of mediation which really hurt my case because she entered false information and submitted it when it was incomplete. We proceeded with mediation anyways.
After looking back at what happened in my case, I almost felt as though Andy was cooperating with my ex's attorney behind my back to help her get what she wanted. I would avoid hiring Andy at all costs and with the poor representation that I received from him.
