Helped Me A Great Deal
Without even charging me, she reviewed a complex special needs trust issue and found an attorney for my mother near where my mother lives. Leslie clearly knows her stuff but is also caring and compassionate. I recommend her highly.

Smart, Experienced and Kind
A friend referred me to Leslie when I needed some legal advice. I was in a jam and all the attorneys I contacted didn't know how to help me. In fact, one said "There isn't a way to resolve this". I was panicked! Then I spoke with Leslie who calmly told me what I needed to do. It worked like a charm! She is the BEST!
