I have been involved with multiple divorce attorneys in the past and found Leslie to be by far the best attorney I have ever encountered. She is spectacular! Very intelligent, astute, and a joy to work with. She was on-top of every detail, kept me well informed and made it much easier to sleep at night.
Leslie was so superb that my wife frequently complained that I hired an expensive "big gun."
Leslie has a wonderful attitude, understands all the gory detail legal aspects and is very honest and direct. Her total fees ended up being much more reasonable than the competition who was at a much lower cost per hour. Leslie has a highly trained and sharp support staff and she delegates very effectively. You won't find a more effective and pleasant person to work with.
I highly recommend her with no reservations.

I was recommended Leslie due to custody issues with my case. She was incredibly thorough and had prepared for every detail before appearing in court. Where the other lawyer relied on emotional appeals to the judge, Leslie was factual, calm and effective. Her team was very good at keeping me informed and making sure I had the correct paperwork filed at each step. I would unhesitatingly fully endorse Leslie for anyone going through a divorce.

Leslie handled my challenging divorce and custody battle some years ago. She was not only professional and competent, she was also a tremendous pleasure to work with. In the end, I got nearly everything I had wanted (including full custody of my son, a challenge for a father).
I would not hesitate to work with Leslie again and I cannot recommend her strongly enough.

I've had the pleasure of knowing Leslie both as a fellow attorney and as a fellow parent at our children's school. She astounds me with the energy she displays in both those roles. In the legal arena, that energy drives both her brain and her heart. It enables her to get what her clients and their children deserve.
