Great support during a very difficult time

  • I recommend Jimmy Lefton.
  • I used Jimmy 6-12 months ago.
  • Jimmy handled my Divorce / Separation matter.
  • I have previously worked with 3-5 lawyers.

My ex-husband and I were fortunate in that our decision to separate was mutual and amicable. However, working our way through the detailed negotiations raised complex issues, and our top priority was that we resolve them in a way that maintained our relationship and the calm environment that was helping our children adjust to the big changes that had happened in our family. Unfortunately, the first attorney I hired seemed determined to create tension and conflicts where none had existed, and I was devastated.

As I searched for a different lawyer Jimmy Lefton was recommended to me, but after my previous experience I was understandably apprehensive. However, it only took a few minutes during our first meeting for me to be completely reassured. Jimmy is the perfect combination of professional, knowledgable, thorough, compassionate, objective and supportive. Most importantly, he truly listened to my priorities and respected them, while still ensuring that I understood every aspect of the issues we were negotiating. As an added bonus, he is a warm and friendly person, and a pleasure to work with.

As a result of Jimmy’s considerable efforts, my ex-husband and I finalized our divorce with us both feeling like we reached a fair and equitable agreement. And we are extremely grateful that Jimmy helped us maintain the amicable family relationship for our children that is so important to all of us.

I am very happy to highly recommend Jimmy Lefton.
