    Rebecca Leonard was recommended to me by another respected attorney in the Kansas City area. I found her to be very professional, yet compassionate, tenacious in protecting my interests and the interests of my children, and very responsive whether by phone or email. She is an expert in practicing family law and I feel blessed to have retained her as my attorney. I have recommended her to others and will continue to do so in the future.

    Rebecca Leonard represented me in a difficult modification of my divorce. She kept me advised of the progress of my case and was very responsive to my calls and emails.

    During a very long and arduous event, Christy Finley and her assistant Sheila Hilker, we're in my opinion "outstanding". They were great to work with and delivered beyond expectations. Christy was recommended to me by a friend, and I cannot thank that person enough. I would not hesitate for a moment in recommending the firm of Leonard and Finley.

    Rebecca Leonard was recommended to me by a respected colleague and she lived up to the reputation of being "one of the best family law attorneys in the metro area". I was very pleased with her services and her knowledge of the law. She was sympathetic, yet also very self-confident, and that's exactly why I decided to retain her. Her fees were fair, based on the amount of time she spent on my case. She helped fight for what I deserved, and was very professional and efficient at all times.

    The individuals who work with Leonard & Finley are quite exceptional. In working with Rebecca Leonard, she is highly respected and values her work. She is quick to respond to any questions that I may have, which there were times I had many, and was both patient and helpful with all of my legal needs. I will continue to suggest their services to anyone I encounter that may be seeking legal counsel or advice. I am so glad they were recommended to me. I trust and respect all that they do.

    While the office personnel was always friendly and courteous, Ms. Leonard was very difficult to reach and rarely returned phone calls. At one point she even advised that I was just not a priority. I was left without direction and guidance much of my case (before, during, and after) and felt she was unwilling to fight for me on any matter. The amount that was spent has placed me in a considerable financial bind while I received very little, if anything, that was favorable to me in the end.

    I was given false hope in the beginning, my attorney lost their paralegal half way through my case which affected the attention it got, and I was way overcharged for the services. It may have been worth it had I witnessed my attorney trying harder, but to me I wasted my time and money to get what I already had. I will never use this firm again. I also thought I would have between $600 and $800 coming back to me after everything was said and done. I got $100 back after their last bill.
