You want someone like this on your side
I have known Leslie on and off for years. Many years ago I had a small problem and she took care of it with a letter and charged me less than $100. This year I've had 2 things that required a lawyer. They were both unusual. The first one involved social justice and she helped me pro bono. The second one was out of her area of expertise and she hooked me up with an attorney who was experienced in the field. He took my case because Leslie had referred me. His assistant had said he was in court for 2 months and wasn't consulting anyone new at this time. I am writing this positive review in spite of the fact she represented the other side in a divorce case against my nephew, which I didn't know at the time. My nephew expressed the sentiment recently time he wished he had Leslie as his attorney instead of his own. Leslie is a battler. If she is on your side its the equivalent of having an F-18 fighter jet . Three times I've consulted with her over the years, gotten 3 positive results and never been gouged because each time it got handled quickly and efficiently.

Excellent Lawyer!!
I couldn't have been more impressed by any other Family Law attorney. I have had a few consultations with different attorney's to help me resolve my case. None of these attorney's I met with provided me with the reassurance Leslie has given me. I was referred to Leslie Jensen last year and I must say she is hands down the best recommendation I have ever received. She has a very strong personality which I admire. Knowing that Leslie has 38+ years of experience in law provided me with a great sense of relief. I am very blessed and thankful for Leslie!

Leslie will tell you the truth whether or not you want to hear it.
If you're seeing Leslie professionally, it's probably not for party planning. Leslie will tell you what you need to hear whether or not you want to hear it. Leslie will tell you what you need to do, whether or not you want to do it. Leslie has my strongest possible recommendation.

The best family law attorney around
Leslie was recommended to me by a friend,and I see why.She completely took apart the opposing attorney,I actually felt a little sorry for the opposing attorney,but was glad my ex wife chose him.Leslie is very professional,intelligent,and very good in the courtroom.These people with negative comments are idiots,and they better hope they aren't on the opposing side of the courtroom someday,then they will see why Leslie Jensen is simply the best family law attorney around.

Excellent, Effective Attorney
I sought out Leslie at the recommendation of a good friend. When Leslie and I met, I was reeling from the very poor results my first counsel produced in the child custody and mediation process. Once Leslie agreed to substitute in on my case, she worked swiftly and somewhat miraculously to rectify the damage that had been done. Leslie is undeniably competent, appropriate and responsive. Her approach is realistic, unemotional and on point.....exactly what someone in the chaos of divorce needs. My son has the protections he deserves and I have the peace of mind that protection affords. I would recommend her to anyone who needs effective counsel. In my opinion, her skill is unmatched.

The Right Choice
Leslie Jensen came highly recommended! Upon our consultation, I knew I wanted to be represented by Leslie. She and her caring, supportive staff were always attentive to my personal, legal issues and handled promptly with complete communication. Leslie Jensen is brilliant! She is a professional woman of high integrity. During our court session's, she was an articulate speaker and maintained respect from the Judge. I never lost hope with Leslie's strength and confidence! I received excellent service from Leslie and her staff. Our journey together was long but the results were successful! If you are in need of an excellent divorce attorney, contact Leslie F. Jensen. She will assist you with an important decision that reflects your life. You'll be thankful that you did. I never looked back with doubt. Thanks to Leslie, my case has been resolved.

Best Lawyer in the Northern County
Leslie Jensen is superb. She guided and supported me every step of the way. She cared about my case and went above and beyond for me. She believed in me and is always there when I need her. I met with four different attorneys when I was searching for representation. When I came to Leslie’s office my entire case changed direction. She was in contact with me on a regular basis. Leslie’s presence in court is undeniably superior as she is very smart with her words, her angle, and tactics. I felt very confident in the court as she presented herself in the most professional and knowledgeable manner. I feel lucky to have been supported by such a caring, communicative office staff.

Leslie Jensen is the best lawyer in the Northern County by far. Extremely talented litigator and very knowledgeable. The best representation I have ever come across.

Leslie is great!
Leslie Jensen is a superb attorney! Her knowledge of the law is extensive and her years of experience show in her professional manner. She is meticulously organized and a powerful, articulate speaker in court. She handled my divorce case succinctly and efficiently, while also addressing my personal needs. I really appreciate her innate ability to see through a situation. I recommend Leslie to anyone!

A strong recommendation for Leslie Jensen
Due to an extremely vindictive x-wife who was represented by an attorney with a strong bias against public safety administrators, I was subjected to a divorce & alimony proceeding that lasted about four years. During this time, Ms. Jensen continually represented me in the most professional, competent and responsive manner I could only hope for. I strongly recommend her to others who need good legal representation.

Biggest mistake to trust Leslie F. Jensen to do her job in representing you and your childrens best interests.
I am in the process of making a formal complain against Leslie F. Jensen. she didn't do anything to help me during my divorce. she didn't review my case at all, she didn't care. she was quick to collect the $4000, but useless otherwise. She gossiped about me, as I witnessed first had in the court room as she and another attorney gossiping about their clients. she sat in mediation, but didn't do anything to protect my children's interests. She is not any woman's advocate, specially those women that have a say about what she isn't doing & God for bid if anyone questions her or her intentions. I begged her over and over for advice. The only thing I ever got from her was, she would shrug her shoulders and say "I DON'T KNOW" she had the nastiest attitude, is judgmental, extremely RUDE, unbelievably arrogant, most of all if she doesn't like you, she's not invested in your case and will do the least amount of work possible. I never once felt assured or protected by her or her ability to represent me adequately. I was completely alone in this process. she didn't review any of my paperwork, I was never given any notice for court dates by her. I never once was given any advice by her or her office. as this was my first time going through a divorce I wasn't sure of anything and needed an attorney who would share her wisdom & advise me with her knowledge of the law or with her experience of the family courts system. I wasn't happy with her from the first custody mediation, as she did nothing to protect my children from unnecessary traveling. I emailed her to tell her I was completely unhappy and needed better representation, and she basically told me she was appalled at the contents of my email, and furthermore she proceeded to basically (to my understanding and those of whom have read the emails) threatened me with " state of California is more favorable with a parent who is willing to share the kids" those words scared me to death, I felt like I had to give into every demand, or else ... She over charged me for a meeting that was only a half hour, but charged me 45 minute, over charged me for emails, & phone calls. she was never on time in court. I was always the last man standing in the court room. She made it extremely hard for me to ask questions, I was very afraid that she would abandon me all together and I didn't have the means to hire another attorney. she sat back and did nothing. my ex and I have a huge loan, and/or financial obligation to a family member where it involved a large sum of money. Loans that were given and property that was purchased in the family members name, and then later lost because we could not pay for that property any longer. anyway, I had submitted pages of return check copies and such. None of which she had EVER reviewed or ever given proper attention to, and in the end she screwed up the agreement so badly trying to convince me to take on full responsibility of the loan & telling me it was written as to my request. which was a complete LIE. I would never agree to anything like that. I was forced to just accept what she was saying. she rushed me through everything, she kept saying sigh here. sign here. sign here. and bam it was done. she didn't do any research to protect with the IRS matter, I told her I was advised by an accountant who told me this is not ok, not a good plan for you, not to your best interest, & she yelled at me in the court house lobby and walked away. didn't tell me I had to wait around to get a copy of my divorce settlement. All she told me was, " I'm done" and walked out of the court room. I later found out that I was suppose to stay there to receive a copy of the signed documents, or I was suppose to provide a self addressed envelope to have those important documents mailed to me. Leslie Jensen was the worst thing that happened to me. she screwed me. My ex says "I had both your attorney and my attorney working for me" she basically refused to do her job, she screwed me ...

Response from Leslie Jensen December 8, 2017
The public record of this proceeding reveals this client, Wife, had several hearings pertaining to custody and support issues. She and her husband reached agreements as to a parenting plan and a long term support order. The parties entered into a Marital Settlement Agreement resolving all contested issues in an amicable manner. Husband paid $3,000 of Wife's attorneys fees. Public record indicates case was commenced 6-5-13 by Husband filing a Petition for Dissolution and case was concluded 4-8-14 with a Marital Settlement Agreement and Judgment. The issues of family loans and other property issues referenced in client's post are entirely explained and resolved in the Marital Settlement Agreement terms and conditions. The court file reveals numerous pleadings filed on behalf of Wife and her participation in contested hearings. Due to the constraints of attorney-client privilege, no information other than what is found in the public record is referenced in this comment. Family Code 3040(a)(1) provides in part, "In making an order granting custody to either parent, the court shall consider, among other factors, which parent is more likely to allow the child frequent and continuing contact with the noncustodial parent..."
