Leigh has provided excellent legal services and I would highly, highly recommend her to any of my friends and family. She is smart, compassionate and will do what is in my best interest. I can’t recommend her enough. Her offices are beautiful (I love the original art collection) and a comfortable place to meet during stressful time in life. I love her rescue dog Potcakes – when there was crying – Potcakes is there to comfort. Trust is everything, and she has my trust.


Leigh is a wonderful human. She sincerely cares about people and is helpful when you need her. I highly recommend doing business with Leigh Daniel.

Everyone at this office is kind and helpful. Divorce is painful and tedious and often overwhelming, but they walked me through it. After Leigh helped me negotiate a settlement, she asked how I felt. I said, “I don’t know,” but the word that I thought of was “blank.” I was afraid that sounded negative, but later I realized I felt like the blank page between parts one and two of a long book. I’m writing the 1st paragraph of Part 2 now.

“Everyone needs an attorney with your heart and dedication to the cause. Thank you for always making me feel like I was a valued client not just a dollar sign. I always believed that we were in safe and capable hands with you.”

Dear Leigh (and Nancy),

I just want to thank you both for your extraordinary due diligence and compassion and caring for my daughter. Your firm has exemplified everything that humanity would want from dedicated advocates for a person and family that has been bullied and humiliated for many years from an ex-partner that is very troubled.

We never dreamed we would find a group such as yours to help our family. I am speaking in the plural, for this hardship and insanity, which just continues with an ex, affects all of our family. We treasure and love our daughter and all of the babies. This situation has caused many sleepless nights for us all. But I would be remiss if I did not take a moment to thank you and your wonderful team for all of your dedication and hard work, to help my daughter.

You guys need and must know what you do really does change lives. Your impact on my daughter’s state of mind through all of this nonsense has made an incredible difference on how she views herself and the world. You have made a DIFFERENCE! And that is very important, for you to know and for me to acknowledge.

Again, thank you.

With best regards,

A Proud Mother

I just wanted to thank you for all of your help today. This is a huge win for me, and the first time in 5 years I’ve felt like something fair and just has occurred with this whole situation with Molly and child support. It took half the day for the wonderful reality of what happened to fully settle upon my brain. I wanted to jump for joy when I got home late this afternoon. I owe you a great bottle of wine. That’s forthcoming my friend.

I have used Leigh Daniel for both divorce and custody issues. Each time Leigh and her team provided exceptional legal service along with outstanding responsiveness. She helped me through each part of both processes to ensure that all of my interests were protected. I am in a much better place now thanks to her.


Leigh handled a custody case for me that I thought was hopeless. She was very open and honest about what I, and my family, could expect. I was thoroughly impressed with her knowledge, her patience and the way she interacted with my children. She was very responsive throughout the proceedings and never left me “in the dark”. Ultimately, the custody case had exactly the outcome I was hoping for but never expected. I am convinced Leigh’s determination and willingness to fight for her client are what led to a favorable outcome for my children and my family. I can never thank her enough for the time she put into my case and her dedication to helping my children.

Let’s face it, divorce sounds so negative: Big “D”, breakup, split. Sounds so final and the connotation is that it’s negative. Well, not so fast. It’s probably just our history, our story around those words. What if you reframed it and it sounded something more like this: Fresh Start, New You—True You, About time!

That’s what it was like for me working with Leigh Daniel through my divorce. Leigh is an advocate for positive change, not just in her work in the law firm but in life. She coached me through it, advised me through it, handed me the tissues and helped me all the way through the close. I not only recommend her but I whole heartedly endorse her. Thank you Leigh!


Leigh is unlike any Divorce Attorney you’ve ever known. She is not just an attorney she is truly an “advocate for positive change”. Her expertise and competence as and attorney is exceeded only by her compassion for her clients. She went over in beyond representing me and I am beyond thankful. It’s difficult for me to put into words my gratitude for her services. I highly recommend her if you or anyone you know is going through domestic legal issues in Huntsville Alabama.

Making a big decision such as divorce can be quite daunting especially if you do not know the ins and outs when it comes to family law. I remember feeling anxious about taking that first step into wanting a better life for myself but not knowing exactly what my rights were as a woman and in the state of Alabama. I was relieved when I went to Leigh Daniel’s office and was informed of how the law…works and all the important details which I needed in order to make wise decisions to protect my rights. The best part about it was that I wasn’t in it alone. Leigh and Ashleigh Meyer (staff lawyer) were right there with me. They took the time to answer all my questions and to point out different scenarios in order to help me make the best choices for me. Their passion for the law and compassion for people in dire situations make the perfect ingredients for these “take charge and get results” attorneys. I think anyone would want those qualities in a lawyer. I know I would and do! I’m so pleased I made that first call to Leigh. Thanks to Leigh and her staff, my life will never be the same and I look forward to a brighter future.

The statistics were stacked against me to get custody of my children. Leigh told me upfront that I could not get away “unscathed”, that my chances were above average, and she would agree to represent me. I was married to a stay at home mom for 11+ years who suffered from severe depression. We had depositions and after 6 months eventually went to mediation. At mediation I offered more than I was comfortable offering; joint custody with long term alimony. Luckily the opposing counsel was greedy and convinced my ex to decline the offer. After consulting with Leigh, and through the power of attraction and positive thoughts, we decided to seek full custody and went ahead full steam. I worked closely with Leigh to present the “case” and at times overwhelmed her with recommended Q&A. Through the 18 month process my case gradually grew stronger, and my exes weaker. At each time there was a continuance, Leigh assured me that this would help my case, and it did. Leigh predicted that I would stay strong, and my ex would start misbehaving, which both happened. Ironically we didn’t know that we were both using the law of attraction until after the case was 99% over. During interrogation the opposing attorney questioned me about my journal, which contained affirmations that I read and repeated to myself. The outcome was nothing short of exactly what I attracted; full custody, short term alimony (which I attracted), and all of the marital assets besides my exes personal affects. I didn’t know how, but I knew from the very beginning that I was going to get exactly what I wanted. I know I attracted Leigh into my life exactly when I did so that this could happen.


The service that I got from Leigh Daniel was superb. I hired her on two different occasions, and on each instance the outcomes were better than expected. In addition, these were two of the most challenging, personal events in my life and Leigh helped me to understand the process. She communicated fast and clearly and always showed a high level of commitment in representing my interests. If you have a domestic relations case in Madison County, I would recommend Leigh Daniels because she knows the processes involved to provide you with the best legal representation that you need.

Louis Gely

Leigh is such a kind, caring person. She always goes above and beyond for her clients. She has amazing interest and concern for everyone that she works with. She pores herself into every case always striving for what is best for her client. Thank you Leigh for all you do!

Christy Hawkins Dunn

I went for several consultations where the attorney was happy to collect their fee without providing useful information. All they did was explain the legal process and what they expected from me. The minute I sat down with Leigh, it felt like a huge weight was lifted from my shoulders. She was so warm and friendly and treated me with kindness and respect. Leigh listened to me…she actually allowed ME to speak and provided useful guidance giving my consultation considerable value. My divorce was very traumatic for me and Leigh made me feel so much better and informed me of what I needed to do so that I was protected.

It was very important to me that I had good communication with my attorney. I could always reach Leigh via email, and phone calls were promptly returned. If I needed to see Leigh, I was able to get an appointment within a reasonable time period…this was invaluable to me.

Leigh is so non-judgmental and I could tell her anything without feeling self conscious. In addition to excellent attorney representation, Leigh’s staff provides support that is just as warm and friendly as she is. Leigh worked hard for me, she “stuck it out” and encouraged me when others might not have. The end result was an excellent outcome and fair settlement. I truly can’t say enough good things about Leigh, and welcome anyone to get in touch with me for specific questions about my case and representation.

Leigh Daniel helped me through a very complex divorce and aggressively defended my interests. I know that I can count on her to return my correspondence in a timely manner and fight for my rights as a parent. Both my mother and I have put our trust in Ms. Daniel over the past three years when dealing with my difficult ex-wife, and I strongly recommend her anyone searching for an attorney.

Mark C.

Thank you for making such a hard time better. You made me feel like family and or a long lost friend. I felt more comfortable with you and your staff than the situation I was going thru at the time. I appreciate all you have done and I will never forget it. You made my life better 🙂

It has been a wonderful pleasure having Leigh Daniel and Associates as my lawyer. I retained their service for a divorce. It is a hard thing to come to grips with the fact that you want to file for a divorce after many years of giving your life to someone. Especially, when there are also children involved. You have to really be sure about what it is your doing.

Leigh Daniel and Associates helped make this process much easier for me. Which no divorce is easy, but it helped greatly know they were on my side. I was very nervous and the first visit I explained my situation. Leigh provided all information in regards to laws, courts, process, etc. I at first felt overwhelmed by all the information, but they helped greatly in making the process much easier. Divorce is a hard enough thing to go through without dealing with lawyers wanting to go for it all or “Go for the throat” so to speak. Leigh and her team didn’t do that at all. They kept me aware of all my rights every step of the way. Provided me with different solutions and left me to make the final decisions. They definitely don’t like tying up the court system and having to drag things out when it is not necessary. They were always very quick to respond and send letters, information to court system immediately. They always gave great advice to help in all situations.

My divorce became final at mediation without having to go to court. This was very nice. When it was all over it was sad in many ways. One because now I am on my own and don’t have anyone to count on in life. I know now that my decision was a good decision and I’m very happy in my life. Two because now I’m not talking to Leigh and her team all the time like before, kind of like going 9 months with your doctor to deliver a baby and then the baby is born and you don’t see that doctor again for a long time.

I know I can always count on Leigh and her team for support. Leigh and her team are very honest, respectful group of people and I would refer them to any of my friends.

Leigh Daniels handled my military divorce and made what was a truly difficult time in my life bearable. She guided me through the maze with her expertise, positive outlook and confidence.

Leigh is competent, and responsive with a high level of integrity. She always listened to my concerns, as well as researched to find solutions that would recommending Leigh and her staff.

Barbara Rich

At the absolute lowest point in my life, I was in desperate need of help. The fear of a pending divorce and loss of my children had me absolutely overwhelmed, as beaten down as one could feel. I needed someone to listen to my entire situation, understand my circumstances, and provide me expert advice. I had gone to two prior firms to talk about my situation and walked away uncomfortable, still lost, and unsure of what to do. Upon meeting Leigh for the first time, I knew I had found my partner. The more I spoke with Leigh the comfortable I felt that even through the most horrible experience I could imagine, I was going to be OK. Leigh was focused, listened to my horror stories, and fielded my many questions providing easy to understand, excellent advice, providing comfort and hope that I needed so badly. I strongly recommend Leigh Daniel and her firm for anyone looking for legal counsel in facing divorce.

Thank you Leigh for all you did for me and giving me the hope and guidance I needed.

During the spring of 2010, I retained Leigh Daniel for an ongoing custody case for my 10-year-old son and defense against a superfluous contempt motion. My ex-spouse has a behavioral disorder that is non-conducive to a peaceful family environment. Also, she had filed a contempt motion against me for noncompliance with a divorce decree when, in fact, I was in technical compliance per the order. Ms. Daniel advertises that she and her staff practice the “CARE Philosophy”. The following is my critique on her compliance to each facet of this philosophy.

  1. Communicating with the Client – Ms. Daniel is very responsive to each email, phone call, and unannounced visits to the office. This includes responses via email on holidays. Either Ms. Daniel or a member of her staff will return inquiries or information within a day. I have never experienced a situation where I was waiting a week for a response to information or inquiries.
  2. Appropriate Recommendation for Positive Actions – Ms. Daniel is very forthright and honest when making recommendations regarding my case. In fact, before a change of circumstances, Ms. Daniel told me, as a father, it would be “tough” to reverse custody. I had made several suggestions that would have incurred cost on my behalf. Ms. Daniel was quick to dismiss these suggestions, which save on fees and serves as testimony of her integrity. All proactive actions Ms. Daniel has recommended has benefited my case.
  3. Representation in Court – As a former Sheriff’s Deputy, I have observed literally hundreds of attorneys perform in court. Some attorneys are complacent and lethargic with their courtroom presentations. April 2011, Ms. Daniel presented my case during an Emergency Pendante Lite hearing for custody of my son. She subpoenaed more than enough witnesses, complied appropriate documentation, and even presented evidence “on the fly” as the oppositions’ testimony changed. Ms. Daniel presented my case professionally and aggressively which resulted in temporary custody of my son.
  4. Extended Client Relationship through Referral – Ms. Daniel made several recommendations to resources such as the Warrant’s Magistrate, Child Psychologist, and others. I would consider all these referrals to be relevant to my case and not a waste of time or financial resources. On March 1st 2011, evidence presented itself which required an Emergency Hearing for Child Custody. When Ms. Daniel received notification of this evidence, she and her staff immediately filed for an emergency hearing. The emergency hearing was held shortly after. Ms. Daniel more than adequately prepared for the hearing to include the subpoena of witnesses and compilation of evidence. She represented my case aggressively to squelch the rhetoric and untruthfulness of the opposition. With the evidence provided and Ms. Daniel’s superior presentation skills, the Court awarded me with temporary legal and physical custody of my son. Ms. Daniel continues to represent me as the final hearing nears closer.

In closing, Leigh Daniel and her staff operate the best legal practice I have ever observed.

Joseph V. Lucius, III

I am so thankful that I chose Leigh to represent my children and I during a very difficult time in our lives. Her knowledge, advice and support helped me understand the process and cope with the unfortunate situation I was faced with. I felt that she truly cared about me and had my best interest at heart.

Jon Fleming

Leigh is always in “support” mode – intending that everyone around her can find happiness, flourish, and achieve their highest outcomes. However, she is not afraid to dig deep and confront inequality, unfairness, and unkindness with a strong strategy and effective tactics.

Melissa Del Toro Schaffner

The relationships, support & encouragement from PPC has been unbelievable! There is such a vast resource of change-makers and shakers who have joined together with a goal to get their messages out into the world to help themselves and others.
