No one wants to find themselves embroiled in a nasty custody battle. But, if you do, you could do no better than Leneigh Bosdet. She is a consummate professional, who made me feel at ease with the process during a very stressful time. I was always kept informed regarding where I stood, and things moved as swiftly as they could. Always ready to collaborate, but ready to throw down if necessary - if I had to do it all over again, I would pick Ms. Bosdet every time.
