Leslie did a great job representing our child in a sensitive legal matter. She artfully balanced listening to the parents, the needs of the child and collaborated with authorities for a fair conclusion.

I can’t say enough great things about Emmy - she was extremely responsive and provided amazing legal and emotional support to our family. She consistently went above and beyond from working on a Sunday to checking in with us before, during, and after our legal needs. She handled and resolved our case quickly and with a positive outcome. I highly recommend having Emmy in your corner!
