What our clients say
I worked with Joseph during a free 30-minute consultation provided by my insurance on a landlord-tenant issue. Joseph was extremely helpful during the call he asked questions to clarify the case and gave me an informed legal perspective. He did not have to look anything up or otherwise waste time. He acted professionally and candidly. I would highly recommend Joseph to prospective clients. by A. Petralia, Landlord Tenant Client
Attorney Joseph Leone handled a non-compete, employment case for our company with outstanding professionalism and favorable results. His knowledge, demeanor, and advice was impressive. He saved us money, time and aggravation by expediting the process. His conduct in the court room was confident and effective. He listened to our concerns and accommodated our wishes throughout the process. We highly recommend him.
I worked with Attorney Leone on an employment law matter. He was very responsive to the initial request regarding whether or not representation was necessary. Attorney Leone was equally responsive to subsequent questions both via telephone and email. I quickly assessed that his legal knowledge and ability to analyze the employment matter was outstanding. Attorney Leone was very honest, and I trusted his judgment. His communications were descriptive and clear yet easy to understand. His fee structure was more than fair. I give Attorney Leone the highest recommendation for an employment law matter.

Ms. Hayward recently represented my family in a child custody trial. Her dedication to, and constant communication with our family, her attention to detail, her professionalism and the thorough research she conducted (in spite of short notice of the trial) were outstanding and contributed to our winning the case. I would recommend her without hesitation. by a Child Custody client
Lorelei was absolutely wonderful to work with. I have dealt with several attorneys in the past and Lorelei was beyond comparison when it came to her knowledge of my case as well as her preparedness for the judicial process. She is very personable, and at all times she showed a genuine concern for my welfare regarding my case.
Ms. Hayward did excellent work on our case. She took the matter quite seriously, preparing adequately for trial and ultimately winning but also approached the situation in a way that helped us breathe a little. Her conduct with us and with the opposing counsel was highly professional, but she remained authentic and approachable throughout.
I have worked with Lorelei Hayward over the past six years. She has handled by divorce matter as well as the various matters that were a derivative of my divorce (child support modification, child support payments, etc.). Whenever a issue would arise, Lorelei would listen to my concerns and what my goals were regarding the matter. She asked many questions in order to get a better understanding of the situation and to obtain all the necessary facts that could be pertinent to the case at hand.
Ms. Hayward was knowledgeable, honest and responsive handling my case. She made it a point to understand my situation, listen to my position, and, as I requested, to educate me as to the workings of divorce law and my rights. Ms. Hayward brought experience and empathy to the proceedings, and was patient with my many questions and requests. Her courtroom presence was outstanding and I would recommend her without reservation. Her success is appreciated! by a Divorce client
I had asked a recently divorced friend for a recommendation for an attorney. He recommended his ex-wife s lawyer. From the other side of the aisle he said Attorney Hayward did a great job he wished he had hired her. I stopped by her firm to discuss my case, full of twists and turns, custody nuances and unusual details.
