Why Family Law?
I like working directly with my clients. I became an attorney to help people, and not every area of law presents the opportunity to truly work side by side with your client. I have found that my background in accounting has become one of my greatest tools as a family law attorney, and I enjoy working through financial questions with my clients.
What can clients expect when they work with you?
I am very responsive to clients, whether that involves answering questions or simply listening. I understand that divorce is often the most difficult period of time in an individual’s life. Clients entrust us with their families, children, and finances and I take that very seriously.
Why Nottage and Ward, LLP?
The firm has a great reputation in the area of family law. Working with both Leslie and Jeff, I see how they analyze each case individually and tailor their approach according to the client’s needs. Nottage and Ward, LLP is a collaborative environment and we work together to give our client’s the best representation possible.
What strengths do you bring to Nottage and Ward, LLP?
I am very dedicated to my clients. I believe communication with the client is key in family law, and I make it a point to be accessible to my clients. I also have a background in accounting, which allows me to work through complex financial issues, including valuing businesses, working through claims for dissipation, calculating income for purposes of support, and configuring tax implications in any financial transaction.

Leslie has been the strongest representation I could ask for
Leslie has been the strongest representation I could ask for in a very complicated, emotional matter. She has continuously looked out for my best interest and the best interest of my son. She is always prompt in getting back to me and in keeping me well informed about my case.
