The Best Divorce Attorney
I had a particularly difficult case to say the least. Jessica is extremely knowledgeable, and was able to navigate the system and deal with my case expertly. I would HIGHLY recommend Jessica. She is communicative and explains everything when things inevitably get messy. She is amazing!!!!

Knowledgeable, Professional, Passionate
Ms. Lesowitz is beyond knowledgeable when it comes to the convoluted ins and outs of CA family law. She is so passionate about the rights of those involved that she gets details in your arrangement that you would never have thought of adding in. She is efficient and fantastic at multi-tasking to keep her client's needs ahead of her own. I have absolutely no regrets when it comes to how she handled my case and would highly recommend her to anyone at any stage of their divorce or custody case.

Perfect Pinch Hitter
My attorney with whom I had been working with for over a year on my divorce was unexpectedly called away to court right before my final hearing with the judge. She said she asked her mentor, Jessica Lesowitz, if she could step in last minute. She assured me I would be in even better hands than her own. Well, after one conversation with Jessica I was blown away. She had an amazing understanding of the entire history of my case and really understood the situation better than I could have ever imagined. The next day in court she helped me feel calm and prepared. She handled herself in the court room like a true master. I could have not been more pleased with her representation and the judgement was a landslide in my favor. Jessica was a dream to work with. Friendly, confident, charismatic, professional and highly skilled.

Brilliant
Not only is she a legal mastermind, her demeanor is result focused. Whether it's negotiating with opposing counsel to work out an agreement, or out-litigating the opposition in court when settlement talks break down, NOBODY does it better. Jessica truly had my back in the darkest moment of my life.

The BEST!
Jessica is the best! She is professional, takes care of her cases, always as her priority, keeps you informed, and always tries to get the best results. Jessica helped me with my domestic violence restraining order against my ex, it involved my two minor children. She did a superb job.She guided me thru the whole process with her professional knowledge. She made me feel comfortable in front of the judge since she prepare me and told me what to expect. She was always friendly and supportive. Her professionalism is admirable. It was as if all of my worries about what to expect with law in family court were a room in darkness, when Jessica became my attorney she was my light. She really is a great attorney. If you are looking for a professional, reliable and charming attorney she is the one! Yes, Jessica is the BEST!

Competent, professional and hard working
Jessica Lesowitz helped me with a spousal support case that was brought on by my ex-husband. I was scared and felt inadequate to deal with the varying issues but Jessica took charge and handled the entire case with her superior legal skills and professionalism - fighting for me from start to finish. Her energy was astounding. A big bonus was that she made me feel at ease with her friendly and kind personality. The outcome of the case was excellent. I would recommend her without hesitation.

grateful for her service
I first contacted Ms Lesowitz to represent me in a child support case as I lived out of state. Not only did she tolerate my vehement veteran mood at times, she helped me see past the drama which brought me to her and bring everything into perspective. With great confidence she handled my case and saw it through to what could only be seen as a win given my situation. I would not hesitate to contact her again if I needed representation.

Got the problems with my ex solved
Before I retained Jessica, my ex had been filing all sorts of motions against me and it felt like I was always being dragged into court for some reason or another. I knew I couldn't handle the situation by myself and had to get an attorney. Jessica was recommended to me by a friend of mine that had used her. She was great and I'm so glad I found her. She stepped in, got things taken care of and took charge of the situation. I wish I'd met her sooner. Very happy with her services and definitely recommend her.

Child Support & Dom Violence Protective Order
When I hired Ms. Lesowitz, I was at my most vulnerable state; my husband had not only left me with two toddlers and an empty bank acct, he nearly killed me and physically abused our eldest child beyond comprehension. Having said that, I was distrustful of anyone until I met Ms.Lesowitz. Not only did she extend a friendly hand, but she demonstrated professionalism and expertise in the highest caliber! She was able to get CSE to expedite my case and worked diligently to assist in my case, while taking time to explain things along the way.

Professionalism and Grace
I am writing this review to express my profound gratitude for and to my attorney, Jessica Lesowitz. From the moment I first met Ms. Lesowitz, I was soothed by her intelligence and commitment. I was immediately confident that she would be a formidable ally in the campaign to protect the stability of my son, and I was not mistaken. At every step I was thoroughly informed as to the process, as well as what would be required of me. In the end, Ms. Lesowitz negotiated terms with opposing counsel that more than satisfied my needs. I could not have asked for better representation!

Sloppy / Retainer Hungry
Jessica gave my case the absolute least amount of effort and as a result I have been digging out of the hole she created with regards to custody time with my young son ...I am not angry...but I would never hire her ever again for such a sensitive area of life...I have been living with the consequences ever since and I continue to fight my case as a single Father

Went MIA and skipped state after taking my money.
I hired Jessica to represent me in a custody case in NC. She took my money, dismissed my case and stated that "There were some errors in your paperwork, and I am going to refile it next week." She never refiled it as she agreed and it has been almost 18 months since she was hired. She wouldn't return my phone calls or emails and it was impossible to get in touch with her. After doing an internet search for her, I found that she was working for a law firm in California. She never told me that she was moving to California and was going to just practice law there. She should have finished the case she was paid to do before she moved. What kind of shady disrespectful lawyer moves to another state and fails to inform their client in the middle of an open case. I would not trust her at this point as she has lied to me, and never did what she said she was going to do. She took my money and ran.
