    I am a single dad that hired Mrs. McLeod to modify my custody arrangement so that I could see my kids more and I ended up winning full physical and legal custody of my kids. She really cared about my kids and about me and she fought for me like she did. I simply don't have the words to express my joy in this outcome so I say to her again, "Thank you, thank you, thank you!" This has changed my life and I am thankful God brought me to Gwen. Read less

    Gwen's experience and tenacious negotiating skills played a critical role in securing an equitable settlement to my case. She works hard to defend her client but isn't afraid to tell it like it is. I felt that I could trust Gwen completely and her associate Karen Yeager also did a fantastic job. I would not hesitate to use her services again although I hope I don't have to! :-) Read less
