Meet Leigh Daniel, Huntsville
Divorce Lawyer

I’ve been practicing law since 1994. I worked for two judges, learning about all sorts of litigation that didn’t interest me. I wasn’t sure what I would do with my law degree until I began working with a small firm that handled a lot of divorce cases. I found my calling. I had always wanted to help other people have better lives. Being a domestic relations lawyer, I am able to do that. I’ve practiced in every surrounding county and against every good divorce attorney in most of the counties. I’m quick on my feet and have been known to shred the opposing party on cross examination.  When it comes to fighting for my client, I will not hesitate to go after them. It’s not about “winning;” it’s about what’s right for my client.

About Leigh Daniel in the Family Law Courtroom

I’ve tried many, many difficult cases at my family law firm in Huntsville. Winning some cases I wasn’t sure I would win but putting my heart and soul into the preparation. Staying awake nights and waking up early because I cared about my client’s case as much as they did. It’s never been about my “record.” For me, the people who are in my office and I sit beside in the courtroom matter to me. Because of this, I’ve had a career filled with clients who have referred many people my way. I’ve had clients who I have represented for years and then represented all of their family. I’ve had clients who call me a friend.

I’ve worked with financial experts, psychologists, appraisers, accountants, and business evaluators to handle the most complex cases. When experts are needed in a case, we won’t hesitate to get them involved to insure you have the best outcome.

Here to Help Guide You Through Your Divorce

When it comes to communicating with my clients, I answer email – always within the day and sometimes within the hour. I know how important it is for clients to get answers they need about their cases. I’ve even called clients when I am out of the country if they are having an emergency.

We know you have a lot of Huntsville divorce attorneys to choose from. My team and I want what’s best for you and your family. Isn’t that what you deserve?
