Though she just opened the doors on her private practice, Leisa’s got experience. Years and years of it.
Leisa works from the Collaborative Divorce toolbox. She’s not out to destroy lives, or help you (or your ex) exact revenge. The collaborative law approach is really helpful when you know your marriage is over but don’t want dividing property and determining custody to be a fight, especially one that your kids witness. That said, true to the Taurus in her logo, she’s also stubborn as hell – which is the sort of thing you want in your lawyer. When it’s necessary, she’ll go to court, look your ex or soon-to-be’s lawyer in the eye and say, “No” until she gets what you want. But her goal is to keep your kids safe, cared-for, and as un-traumatized as possible.
She’s a clear and regular communicator, which is kind of a rarity among lawyers. And for anyone who’s ever had to deal with custody or child support, that’s both a must and a relief. She thinks it’s important that you understand what’s happening, and takes the time to unpack all the complex legal drama into terms you can make sense of. Because, like it or not, not knowing something now could change your life. She’s works the long hours, often achieving fair, well-behaved divorces where her clients didn’t think it was possible. And for a price no one can believe is possible.
In fact, she opened her practice explicitly to help low-income families. Like you, and us. The ones who can’t afford the Johnny Cochrans of divorce law. It’s actually ironic she keeps her fees so low – because keeping quality legal aid affordable goes way beyond money. Just you wait till the unthinkable day comes, and you have to do battle not only with your lover of so-many-years, but s/he’s driving the stake in with a lawyer of his/her own.
It’s a relief beyond relief to have someone who’s competent, dependable and affordable in your corner.
