Great divorce lawyer to have on your side
If you have decided a divorce is the best route for you, I highly recommend working with Levi and his team. Calm and collected, Levi will guide you through the process. His goal is to work strategically and methodically to get you the best outcome. He does not rush you into options or to settle on things you are unsure or uncomfortable with. He also does not drag out the process any longer than it needs to be. His support team (call scheduling, payment) are responsive and helpful.

He and I were always on the same page due to his honesty
Last year, I had just moved in the area and needed a family law attorney for a custody case. The process of finding/choosing an attorney could be daunting. However, when I went in for my first consultation with Levi my stress level was immediately mollified. He was personable, which made me feel comfortable to discuss my personal matters freely. I had a lot of questions of the legal process that would take place and he took the time to explain everything with meticulous detail. More importantly, when I called Levi he returned by phone calls in timely/professional time frame. He handled my case with urgency and continued to have an open communication with me throughout the entirety of my case. I felt supported during a time that I was feeling stressed and unclear about my own standing with my daughter. I highly recommend the Miranda Magden & Miranda law firm for any individual that is seeking an attorney who demonstrates a few of these characteristics. PROFESSIONALISM Levi was always on time, completed paperwork quickly, and considered all avenues to get me everything I wanted in my custody battle. COMPASSION Levi proved to be extremely considerate to my predicament and remained to have empathy and honesty. HONEST Levi was very truthful with me as new information came to his office. He was able to articulate what needed to be done in order for my case to be successful. I felt that he and I were always on the same page due to his honesty. CLARITY Levi made all aspects of my case very clear and simple in order for me to have complete understanding. I like to have everything picture in my mind, Levi was able to make the whole process lucid for me to feel confident. ACCOMMODATING Levi worked around my schedule for over a year. I am a single, working mother, without the help of family, and Levi went out of his way to call during convenient times and meet at the office of my preference. Make it easier on yourself and contact this law group to assist you with your case and alleviate future stresses.

Reliable, polite, professional…
“Very reliable law firm. Super professional and polite. Court system can get really frustrating and exhausting, so please, do yourself a favor and give these guys a call. It will save you all the nightmare and headaches of going through endless paperwork and time wasted between court dates. After all, Miranda, Magden & Miranda got me custody of my two children and at the same time they helped me out with the very reasonable service fees. I will strongly recommend this law firm to friends and family. Keep up the good work and God bless.”

I highly recommend them to anyone…
I was in need of a family law attorney for my QUODRO/401K plan that had been addressed/finalized over 13 years ago. My “X” was now taking me back to court stating he did not receive his 1/2 of my 401K. Because it was over 13 years ago, I did not have my records immediately available to provide documentation to the court. Due to this, I did not feel that I could represent myself. I had met with a couple of attorneys locally and felt right off the bat they were not a right fit for me and my case. Through my sister in-law, I was recommended to contact Miranda, Magden & Miranda. After contacting their office to set up my consultation appointment I had a good feeling about meeting with them. After meeting with Levi for my consultation I KNEW that he and his law firm/office were the one for me and my case. He and his office are amazing and I highly recommend them to anyone.

run from him...
I did hire Levi and had to fire him after the first month. I should have read other reviews here more carefully. What he was doing is border criminal and I am preparing to take him to the court for that. To be clear, I had many attorneys in children custody case that lasted many years, I was not exactly a novice in that area. Its absolutely true what other reviewers say here, Levi does talk a lot about nothing, totally useless information lasting hours and hours. In my case he did try to capitalize on my fair of losing custody, directly threatening me about it, that the only way I survive is if I do exactly what he says, and he will be spending hundreds of hours per month to explain what I need to do or not to do. All that was useless, my situation was never as bad as he portrayed to me and got much better as soon as I fired him. What I heard later from co-parenting coordinator, it was clear that Levi was not representing my interests as he was supposed to. To be clear, on my initial consultation with Levi, we agreed on action plan, expected results, and the price for the job. The upcoming hearing was very soon, and his office presented me totally different contract, leaving out the agreed terms. Since I needed Levi in the hearing, signed the contract, hoping that Levi will honor the terms. He did not. I asked him on the first month to honor the terms, he was complaining about his own office that his hands are tied. And I ended up firing him after the first month. He did not do anything on what we agreed on. Instead, his office spent hours and hours preparing I&E and "analyzing" financial discovery materials that I have not even provided. When I confronted about that, they removed some hours from the billing. But later charged again.
