Testimonials

What they Say?

I hired Bankston Law for my divorce proceedings, and I could not be more satisfied with the services I received, and I would highly recommend them for any legal needs you may be facing. Both Leslie and her staff are extremely friendly, caring, patient, and very understanding to the fact if you needed an attorney in the first place, then as a client you are going through a very difficult time. They will go above and beyond to guide you through every step of what should be a very confusing and stressful process, and they will always have your best interest as their number one priority.

I feel extremely fortunate to have Leslie represent me with my case.  Her passion for helping people allowed me to feel confident that my case was not just another number but a sensitive personal matter that she cared deeply about.  Her knowledge, understanding and experience provided me with an expectation and outcome that was much brighter than I may have thought possible at the beginning of this process.  I am proud to be part of the Bankston Law Firm Family.
