Superior Service, Knowledge, Skills, and Ability
"I have been a part of the criminal justice system for over 40-years, but when our family needed a family law attorney we were fortunate to find Justin O'Dell. Over the course of many years and cases including Temporary Protective Orders, Custody Modification, Contempt, and a lawsuit, Mr. O'Dell has displayed a compassionate and professional work ethic. Always available, Mr. O'Dell returned a phone call from atop a mountain in Alaska. Mr. O'Dell is smart, articulate, detail-oriented, and determined. Mr. O'Dell has become our trusted counselor and family friend. His sage advice is unmatched. His probity is unquestionable. We highly recommend Mr. O'Dell."
A Professional to the End- Delivers as Promised
"Very seldom in today’s society do legal professionals promise big and then deliver the same. Leslie O’Neal does both, with an attention to detail that is unsurpassed in her profession.
While going through a lengthy divorce that required re-educating many attorneys along the way, Leslie was steadfast, balanced and well-articulated, regardless of who she was opposite in the courtroom. The feeling of her presence was insurmountable. After winning custody of my children in 2010, Leslie was hired for support modification after some life style changes had taken place. In the courtroom during trial, I glanced over to see Leslie preparing her closing notes and checking off bullet points for the judge’s consideration of every point she wanted to make. I instantly began to feel every dime invested in this 15 month journey was worth it.
Leslie O’Neal and her firm are what valuable legal counsel is all about. I was always educated on the right path to take and never had a request for feedback, a call, or a question go unanswered. This firm is one that you can proceed from mediation with an unknown path ahead, confident that the very best representation is on your team. Leslie is the paradigm by which any attorney should follow in Family Law."

My son now lives with me and I owe it all to her hard work and dedication. Everyone in her office was so accommodating and caring.

The Very Best Attorneys
“I never thought I would need a divorce attorney. I was shocked, angry, and upset when I discovered I did indeed need legal counsel. When I met Mr. O’Dell and Ms. Blanchard, the truth is my emotions overwhelmed me. I was not able to control my grief, for the majority of the divorce. They were both very professional at all times, as well as kind, compassionate and allowed me my grief. I guess being a good divorce attorney means you have to be part therapist. More importantly, Mr. O’Dell and Ms. Blanchard did things right, preventing me from allowing my pain to drive me to bad decisions. Often in tears, often outraged at what had happened in my life, and just plain heartbroken. Mr. O’Dell and Ms. Blanchard, not only had to come up with, a legal strategy, they also had to deal with me and make me understand that anger and revenge would not serve me well. They were always looking for a reasonable solution to this terrible situation that was the least expensive. They never did things or filed motions just to generate fees. They were very clear with me on the fee structure and how it worked. Attorneys are not inexpensive, competent caring Attorneys are worth every dime. What should have been a simple divorce, ended up in front of a jury. I think that surprised us all. It should have been simple. This is where Mr. O’Dell and Ms. Blanchard and my legal team really had to shine. They had to do two things, present a well thought out case, and help me from falling apart. To say we prevailed in court would be an understatement. In divorce, good people often come up with all sorts of ideas. Ideas to "get even" or "hurt" the ex-spouse. Mr. O’Dell and Ms. Blanchard often had to talk me down from being a fool, and wasting time and money making a bad situation worse. They were always kind and patient in how they approached it. Both Mr. O’Dell and Ms. Blanchard are very bright, but more importantly they are people of great integrity and moral character. They always told me to just be honest. They continuously looked for the most cost-effective way to end the marriage justly. I could never have gone through this without the very best attorneys. I am an educated and experienced man, but nothing can prepare you for a nasty divorce. No-one wins in a divorce. Both Mr. O’Dell and Ms. Blanchard stood up for me when I could not stand for myself. They also kept me from being my own worst enemy. Ms. Blanchard especially helped me keep my humanity intact. Ms. Blanchard is young, but Ms. Blanchard has wisdom, character, experience, intelligence and integrity. I desperately needed her help. In so many ways she saved me, salvaged the rest of my life. Thank you, Alyssa. Thank you, Justin, you are tough and smart, and a good man. You always told the truth. Even when I didn't want to hear it or accept it. That is not only a strength but also a kindness. Feeding someone’s grief, allowing them to live in a dream world and not see the reality of a situation takes guts. Sometimes it us just as important to stand up to your client as it is to stand up for your client. That is not a skill many people have; the world is full of people who will tell you what you want to hear. Speaking truth, is often the most difficult thing to do.
