What our clients say...
"Lea was the perfect attorney for me. He has a superior knowledge of family law. He was especially helpful to me in discussions about my children and about my finances. He is remarkably sensitive and astute regarding the strong emotional issues experienced by divorcing couples. Yet he was tough when toughness was called for.
