I found Leigh's firm through a google search, as I was interested finding the right representation that could do a handful of very specific things for me. First and foremost was making sure my kids were put first. I asked Leigh to help me fight for what was right, for what was fair to everyone to be honest with me (if I was being too stubborn or overly fair) and guide me to make sure that I made sound decisions when emotionally, I had no capacity to do so. Pam in the office is so friendly, and incredibly organized and really kept me on track when everything got overwhelming... she is a true asset to that firm! The fact is - no one wins in divorce. When each side thinks things are unfair is probably when its most fair for everyone. My ex had no interest in anyone but herself, self preservation if you will... and there are attorneys that certainly thrive on people like that ... but that attorney could also make things a lot worse for everyone in the family. I hired Leigh to ensure my kids had a voice and as a father, both my and the family was balanced and best represented... Divorce gets nasty folks, no two ways about it. Leigh advised me, found me help when I needed it, was a great listener, and was the biggest supporter of mine... she truly fought for the family. So, if you want someone to be on your side... and truly are a big enough person to put your family first - then you need to talk to Leigh. Two years have gone by now and we still check in with each other to get updates on the kids, my well being and life in general. Divorce is most hard on the kids... my kids had a tough road... no doubt... but they are ok now. So the real question is - what do you really want out of your divorce proceedings... what outcome can you live with? Today, when my head hits the pillow each night, I sleep like a baby... that's a fact.

In my 37 years of practicing law, I have encountered many good attorneys but only a few outstanding ones. Leigh Joy Carson tops the list .Leigh Joy is extremely bright and is strategic in representing her clients whether initiating a case or defending one. I have opposed her in Court and also engaged her as co-counsel. In addition, I have referred clients to her when I could not represent them. I cannot recommend a lawyer more highly than to trust my own clients to her.

Our daughter attempted to retain Leigh Carson to handle her divorce and child custody matters. In their initial interview, Leigh told our daughter that she was not ready to proceed with divorce and deal with the court system. Our family had no previous experience with family court. Her initial counsel has proved to be invaluable over these past several years. When our daughter had exhausted all avenues of reconciliation, she retained Leigh to represent her in divorce proceedings. Leigh punctually made the scheduled court appearances. It was obvious that she was well prepared and capable. She and Pam Ohlendorf responded to telephone calls, emails and text messages. Based upon my observations, Leigh is well known and respected in the St. Louis County Court system. Her years of experience were very reassuring to our family as we supported our daughter and grandson. Leigh truly was our daughter’s advocate in a very long and difficult case. Leigh always had a positive attitude and a kind word to say about her colleagues. It is my hope and prayer that you never have a matter for family court, but if you do, Leigh Carson can help you. God blessed our family with Leigh Carson and Pam Ohlendorf. Thank you Leigh and Pam.

Leigh is an excellent lawyer and professional. She and her staff are hard working and strive to help the needs of their customers. I am very thankful for Leigh and for the opportunity that I had to work with her.

This law firm is so irresponsible. I wish you read my review before you decide to hire them. but if you already did, don't rely on their word. Make sure they follow your direction by the word. The best course for you and your family is to look for other counsel as you read this. Wish you the best.

Bunch of irresponsible kids working in back with no management it looked like to me plus tables were all dirty my wife and I won't go back

I was distressed when i saw Joseph and was concerned that my issue could not be resolved in a timely or affordable manner. Joe was compassionate but he also solved the issue speedily and without breaking the bank. He is knowledgeable and patient. My family and I are grateful

The staff at Coulter-Lambson goes above and beyond for their clients and their families. Joe and his staff were live savers for us. He was able to provide us with an unimaginable amount of knowledge for our case and advice to make it better. He gave us peace of mind, care and such compassion during our time leading up to our trial and the trial itself. Joe is unbelievably helpful and genuine; but also someone who is tough as nails. We have been through the system twice now in 3 years regarding our child custody agreement and we are very excited to say that he helped my husband in his custody battle and provided us with a win. Joe and his staff are very detailed orientated and are always available at their client's disposal. There are currently no more sleepless nights, and this is the first time our family has been stress free in years, we owe that to Coulter Lambson.

Curran Coulter was a beacon of hope to me at a time when my options appeared limited and the likelihood of a reasonable resolution seemed impossible. Mr. Coulter represented me in a rare child custody/jurisdiction case while I was living out-of-state and was always calm and compassionate. He was responsive, kept me informed, caring and respectful about what I was going through. His support helped me walk through a difficult and confusing process. Curran was always readily available and even when I had “emergencies” after hours, he always responded within minutes-instructing me as to the best course of action. In many cases, the timeliness of his replies turned out to be essential to the outcome of my case. Curran always was on my side financially and constantly advised me about the costs and alternatives available. I am eternally grateful for his service and I hereby recommend Mr. Curran Coulter and the Law Firm without reservation.

I highly recommend everyone at Coulter Lambson, especially Curran Coulter. They are top-notch family law attorneys, and I always feel comfortable asking for their advice and guidance with respect to my own work. Most importantly, their extensive knowledge of the law gives them the flexibility to develop unique and creative solutions for every client's needs.

Dependable, knowledgeable and honest. Joan helped me through a difficult divorce. There was no case law in MO to support my financial position. Despite the challenges Joan provided guidance and found data and resources to support my position. Ultimately the courts rules in our favor. I’m grateful to Joan for her efforts and expertise.

Joan, did an amazing job on our case. She was dependable and extremely easy to work with. Her rates are more than fair and she definitely delivers. Thank you again for handling our case. I recommend her to anyone with legal matter.

I am extremely displeased with the services of this attorney. She was the court appointed attorney for my friend and met with the client only for 15 minutes or so before the court hearing. During her meeting with the client, I have observed that she did not seem to be interested in presenting the client's case for the child's custody, neither did she question several inaccurate statements made on the Hearing Summary that we brought to her attention, which would have undoubtedly changed the outcome of the hearing.

Gave my hardworking money to this firm and ended up very disappointed! They put more effort on getting there payments than satisfying your needs. I don't know how they have rated 5 stars!! I recommend them to anyone that want to lose!!!!

I received a traffic ticket in Southern Missouri several months ago and called to ask Curran for his help. The whole process was extremely easy and painless. Considering I hadn't received a speeding ticket in several years, I was concerned that the whole ordeal would require me to drive back to the municipality to go to traffic court. I gave Curran all the information and within a few weeks everything was resolved. Painless, easy and professional. I'd highly recommend Curran and the team at Coulter Law to anyone in need of legal services. -Chris Marischen, St. Louis

Marta and her staff with their complete thoroughness were a major plus for my case. Outstanding professionalism. I would highly recommended her.

Had a great experience with Marta! She is so knowledgeable and helpful at every turn. Would highly recommend!

Marta was great! She made the uncomfortable situation a lot easier than I thought it was going to be. She was compassionate and direct. I would highly recommend her.

Marta made the process of getting a divorce so very simple for me and my husband. As a mediator, she prepared our divorce decree in a professional and well organized manner. At my pre-trial hearing, my judge commented on how well done the paperwork was and when I told her it was done by Marta she immediately commented on how she knew everything was going to be in order. By using Marta, I saved money on a lawyer during the filing and the court date.

    Steve came highly recommended by a very trusted friend of mine and he did not let me down. He handled my restraining order case with ease, and he always had my best interest in mind-financially as well as personally. Steve really knows his stuff and was always happy to answer my many questions whenever I had them. I highly recommend him to anyone needing family law help. He will take care of you! Thanks Steve!

    So far my experience has been superb!! I trully hope as things progress they continue that way. Very excited for the outcome! Thanks so much to ms. Elizabeth, she has been completely transparent and upfront about everything and making sure everything is done in a timely manner. Always is quick to respond to emails or phone calls. No question or concern goes unanswered for a long period of time!! Which is even better in a situation such as ours! Thanks again.

    I used Bardol Law Firm for assistance with an adult name change. From filing the petition to managing the publication aspect, they made the process as simple for me as possible. Although my case was fairly straightforward, they did not treat me as 'less important' than their other clients. Both Elizabeth and Julie returned my emails and phone calls in a timely, professional manner which I truly appreciated. I would highly recommend this firm.

    Steve Bardol and his team did a great job handling my case. I had an unusual case and he was able to answer every question and concern I had going through this. Even being states away while he took care of this. He made me feel like my case wasn't just another case. He responded to every phone call and email with great urgency. Gave me breakdowns of how my money was being spent on my case. Didn't waste any of my time and was really compassionate about my situation. I can not thank him enough for all he has done for me. My son is my everything. I highly recommend him and his lawfirm. I called a lot of lawyers before I had made my final decision on who I wanted to protect my family. I am beyond blessed to have come across him and his team. 10/10 would recommend to anyone. Thank you Thank you Thank you.

    Going through a divorce is awful, and I'm so glad I chose Bardol Law to help me through it. I felt supported and welcomed by everyone in the office. Steve set realistic expectations and always knew what was happening and how to answer my questions. Great job Steve, I will highly recommend you to anyone needing a divorce attorney!

      So far my experience has been superb!! I trully hope as things progress they continue that way. Very excited for the outcome! Thanks so much to ms. Elizabeth, she has been completely transparent and upfront about everything and making sure everything is done in a timely manner. Always is quick to respond to emails or phone calls. No question or concern goes unanswered for a long period of time!! Which is even better in a situation such as ours! Thanks again.

      I used Bardol Law Firm for assistance with an adult name change. From filing the petition to managing the publication aspect, they made the process as simple for me as possible. Although my case was fairly straightforward, they did not treat me as 'less important' than their other clients. Both Elizabeth and Julie returned my emails and phone calls in a timely, professional manner which I truly appreciated. I would highly recommend this firm.

      Steve Bardol and his team did a great job handling my case. I had an unusual case and he was able to answer every question and concern I had going through this. Even being states away while he took care of this. He made me feel like my case wasn't just another case. He responded to every phone call and email with great urgency. Gave me breakdowns of how my money was being spent on my case. Didn't waste any of my time and was really compassionate about my situation. I can not thank him enough for all he has done for me. My son is my everything. I highly recommend him and his lawfirm. I called a lot of lawyers before I had made my final decision on who I wanted to protect my family. I am beyond blessed to have come across him and his team. 10/10 would recommend to anyone. Thank you Thank you Thank you.

    Barbara went above and beyond anything I could have ever imagined. Her compassion and empathy for my personal situation were beyond amazing. She treated me, not as a "client" but as a person. She took the time to listen to all my concerns and answer all of my questions, I never once felt rushed with her. The time she spends with you makes you feel as if you are the only person in the world. She is honest, thoughtful, knowledgeable and thorough. From the second I meet her I knew she would be amazing! Her enthusiasm and humor are contagious; she truly cares and fights for every individual. No matter how hard I try, I could never say enough good about her and her staff. They are truly amazing people. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend her to anyone.

    Barbara and Kristy are a fantastic team to have on your side. Both are extremely knowledgeable--every time we would talk about how things may play out with opposing counsel or the judge, Barbara's and Kristy's predictions ended up being accurate. And despite all their expertise (or maybe because of their expertise), both remained open to my preferences and wishes--I always felt that I am in control of the process. So if you are looking for competent counsel with a heart (someone who really cares about and listens to you), Barbara and Kristy will be tough to beat (literally).

    I can not say enough good things about Barbara....she is an amazing attorney who was with me every step of the way through a very complicated and emotionally charged divorce. I knew she was the attorney for me during the initial consultation. She spent a lot of time with me going over details of the case as well as being very patient with me as she explained how the process would work. She is very detailed, organized and always gave me a quick response to any/all of my questions. She always made sure she was looking out for my best interest as well as my children for the future. I would highly recommend Barbara!

    Barbara did a wonderful job representing me during a modification that was extremely complicated. I live out of state, my ex-wife and her attorney made every effort to create conflict at every turn of the process. Barbara and Kristy were relentless in regards to fairness and the proper execution of the law. My situation was unique, due to the distance. Barbara met the challenge and exceeded my expectations. Her level of professionalism and knowledge of case law is unequal to any other firms in the St. Louis Area. Barbara is a true professional and is very dynamic in the courtroom. So, if you want a good attorney, go with the other guys! If want a Great Attorney and someone who has your back at every turn: Hire Barbara... You can hear the difference on your very first call to the Behrens Law Firm.

    I had interviewed about 7 attorneys before meeting with Barbara Behrens. During our initial consultation I knew immediately she was the attorney for me. Kristy, her paralegal, and Barbara Behrens are very professional, compassionate and knowledgeable. I could trust them fully to handle my divorce, and I knew I was in great hands. What a relief it was to find them and to work with them thru the entire process. No divorce is easy, but they did everything possible in getting an outcome that was beyond what I expected. I can not thank them enough for a job well done. I would highly,highly recommend them.

    Five stars is not enough. Mr. Jonathan Marks expertly represented me in my divorce from a very successful and aggressive attorney. Mr. Marks is meticulous and extremely knowledgeable. His communication is prompt and clear. His billing is transparent, precise, and extremely fair. Jonathan was always honest, objective, and candid with me regarding the settlement process. Further, Jonathan did not end his counsel upon the court-stamped divorce decree. He advised me to seek a financial planning team and drafted a will and trust making sure I was establishing a solid foundation for moving forward. I cannot express enough praise or gratitude for the representation Jonathan Marks provided. He is an exceptional lawyer and an equally exceptional person: you would be doing yourself a disservice if you hired anyone else. Thank you Mr. Marks.

    Prior to filing for divorce, I consulted four to five law firms. All but one, inattentively and carelessly assured me of things that I would get in a future divorce settlement. Thankfully, there was one lawyer who said everything to the contrary of the other firms. I knew then, that I found someone who would be brutally honest and direct. That attorney was Jonathan Marks. Jonathan worked very hard and diligently on my case. We experienced some things that were made for TV, but though it all, Jonathan always looked out for my best interest, protected me from myself at times and he always got back to me in a timely manner. Although it unexpectedly and unnecessarily took over a year to complete (no fault of ours), my divorce is now finalized and I got everything I wanted and some. Jonathan did a masterful job and Jacqui and Amy were great too. I am very thankful I retained their firm. Save yourself the time and headache; look no further!

    When I finally found Marks law firm, Jonathan asked me what I was looking for in a lawyer. My reply, a lawyer I can trust. After being swindled by Cordell & Cordell to the sum of $16,000.00, (they maxed out my credit card dropped me because I no longer the funds). And after having to represent myself, I lost in court. I suffered for many years after my divorce paying an amount to my Ex-wife which was beyond reasonable. After 35 years of government service with the DOD and supporting this country I love so well, I wanted to retire but couldn't because of the extreme amount of maintenance I was forced to pay by the courts ($2,300.00 a month). Then by the grace of God, I found the Marks law firm. Jonathan proved to be a man of his word and helped me through the entire process "we I won".Time after time I was amazed and impressed with Jonathan,s knowledge, wise advice and tactics to ultimately win my case. If you want a team you can trust through thick and thin plus looking for a fair settlement in the end, I would encourage you to look first the Marks law firm. Happily retired, Don Bratcher

    After making many initial mistakes in my divorce I sought out the advice of Jonathan Marks at the recommendation from a mediator that failed to settle my case. Jonathan immediately set me at ease and helped me to separate what my ex-wife’s high-priced legal team were threatening with the realities of my situation. Jonathan approached my divorce from a place of understanding and legal expertise. He never steered me wrong, was always there to settle my nerves (or calm my sometimes high emotional states) and gave advice that helped me to make better decisions for my future and the future of my son. He listened to my priorities and, true to his word, helped me to settle without going to court saving both me and my son from a lot of emotional and financial turmoil. Jonathan continues to represent me in continuing legal struggles with my ex. He continues to be attentive and timely with his counsel and handling of the legal matters. I value Jonathan and his team as advisers and would not be in the great mental, physical and financial state that I am without his help.

    Jonathan and Amy have impressed me immensely. They are very knowledgeable in family law and take great care to build a professional and trustworthy rapport with their clients. They also maintain great communication; making you confident and secure every step of the way. Their genuine care towards clients makes you second guess every "cliched Stereotype" that you may have had towards lawyers in the past. A well deserved 5 stars and I'm sure many more to follow. Keep up the good work!
