What Our Clients Think

“My family law matter was extremely complex. It contained a divorce, a guardianship, a paternity matter, and lots of complex problems. With all of the complexity, I was worried about finding the right law firm, and interviewed three attorneys. Mr. Leon had a very unique approach, and my anxiety immediately began to lift. I could breath again. The result was better than I could have hoped for. Mr. Leon, and his talented staff were available to answer questions, and solve the complex problems. I have heard horror stories about attorneys missing a court date, then custody changed completely. Mr. Leon was early to court every single time. His problem-solving skills are impeccable. His friendly and caring demeanor makes it feel like you’re being represented by a family member. I am more grateful than words can ever express. Possibly one of my favorite attributes of Mr. Leon is the following. Within intelligent people, arrogance is common, yet, Mr. Leon does not have an arrogant bone in his body. It was a refreshing delight to work with a gentleman who is so smart and so down-to-earth at the same time. Mr. Leon is a living example of what the ideal family law attorney should look like. If you are fortunate enough to be able to hire him, he will be a tremendous asset to your family law matter.”

“I truly can’t recommend David Leon highly enough. David was an integral part of my safe departure and recovery from a very difficult and painful marriage. He then represented me in what would ultimately become an unfairly protracted divorce process of several years.

At every step, David and his team acted with wisdom, knowledge, confidence, and grace. David was the perfect combination of measured counselor and dogged defender in the courtroom and in all his correspondence. He made me feel protected while always comporting himself with poise and high ethical standards. As a respected and long standing Bakersfield community member, it was clear that his experience and relationships within the courthouse made a positive difference in our case. As I have since moved out of state, one regret I have is that I won’t have David in my corner should the need arise again!

This is a relationship that I am very grateful to have formed. Thank you, David, and you’re amazing team, for everything you have done for me and my family.”
