Leah is an excellent attorney. She is professional, following through with each stage of our case. Leah was able to clarify the legalities of our case in terms that we could understand. Beyond her professional ability as a lawyer, she is very thoughtful and caring. She handled our DUI case with the utmost concern for our personal situation. Leah not only provided us with sound legal advise, but prepared us for what to expect in court. She kept us advised of all up-coming court dates, and
what needed to be done in compliance with the court's rulings. It was a relief to have a competent, thorough attorney. Leah Naparstek is simply the best.

Leah Naparstek is a true professional. She went above and beyond the call of duty as an attorney with our daughter's DUI case. She was very honest and upfront with us throughout the entire ordeal and we felt that she genuinely cared about our kid and what our family was going through. Leah is honest, hard-working and very smart and we would recommend her services as a DUI attorney to anyone.

Leah is an amazing attorney. We have worked together on many cases where there was a cross over issue between immigration and criminal. She is extremely thorough and conscientious in solving client matters and finishing cases with a positive result.. Leah will go that extra mile to help a client or finish a case where other attorney's might not.
