    Mr. Leahey did an excellent job protecting me and my children from my abusive ex-husband. He knows his stuff inside out and is completely up-to-date on current cases and decisions. He may not always give you the answers you want to hear but he will tell you what you can or cannot expect in a court of law and he will not make you false promises. If you are looking for someone who is respected by judges and his peers alike and who will get the job done, I would highly recommend Mr. Leahey.
