Leslee was clear and fair to both spouses. She provided timely answers and answered calls within hours of information requested. The divorce moved quickly and orderly. We always felt a sense of fairness and accuracy.

My case is a difficult and complicate one , but I can honestly say that working with Leslee J Newman has been a wonderful experience through a very difficult time of my life.
I’ve been working with Leslee and her assistant for 1 1/2 year now. Never one have I felt as though I was just another client. Even during the slow times of my case such as waiting on continuances, distant court dates, or when nothing was happening legally I could always quickly get answer to my questions, provide legal advice, or guide me through a though situation.
Leslee has always been completely honest with me in managing my expectations and timelines and keeping them realistic. She has always taken the time to make sure I understand the law and the situation without ever talking down to me or making me feel uneducated.
I got my final judgement that reward me the full custody of my two kids, helped me reach a great settlement agreement on finances and property, and was even able to win a judgment on attorney’s fees. Leslee fought for me honestly and fairly. She never used any tricks, lies, or under-handed tactics. She just used truth, knowledge of the law, what was right, and incredible attention to detail the entire time. Leslee and her team made me fell like family , not just a client.
Thank you Leslee for all the hard work.

Leslee Newman is a fantastic attorney. I used her services to complete my divorce. She really cared about getting the divorce done efficiently and as gracefully as possible. It was evident that she had my best interests in mind throughout. I have never written a review before but she is worth praising if it just helps one person- I would recommend her highly.

I have known Leslee for almost twenty years and she has, and continues to be one of my most reliable resources for questions regarding Family Law Practice and Procedure. Leslee truly cares about her clients and advocates tirelessly on their behalf. Additionally, Leslee has been inspirational and insightful as a personal mentor during my entire tenure as a member of the California State Bar and I am grateful to have made her acquaintance.
