I felt totally powerless and blind-sided and yes stomped on… but somehow you righted things and you restored balance to a world that to me was upside down.



Our determined litigators aggressively fight for you at trial.

Ms. McLeod is a strong advocate in the courtroom and where it counts the most. She fights hard for her clients, is organized and effective… As tough as she is, and as strong as she sounds, she is also a kind and compassionate attorney. She deserves the respect she has earned.

–Rebecca Nitkin, Esq.


We regularly communicate with you wherever you are so you know where you stand and what next step to take.

…Because I live abroad, accurate and timely communication with my counsel is important, and the team at Haspel & McLeod have always demonstrated a flexibility and understanding in getting at the essence of the case at hand, and managing it to successful resolution.



During the painful experience of divorce, we provide compassionate representation and remain always sensitive to your needs.

I just want to thank you very much for your helping me through this very difficult process.  You were kind, considerate, thoughtful and generous and I truly appreciate all of those qualities.

I do not have a very good impression of divorce attorneys, but you are the exception to the rule.  I will always recommend you to people who want an attorney like yourself who has integrity and a moral character.



We are determined to obtain the best results in your case through litigation, negotiations or collaborative divorce methods.

Gwen fought for everything I wanted and won!! I’m very glad that she was my lawyer and not my ex-husband’s!



The most difficult aspect of divorce for most parents is the impact on their children. Our family law team advocates for the rights of children to remain with their loving, devoted parents.

… Haspel & McLeod tenaciously navigated the judicial system, bringing about the best result possible for me and my sons. I’m elated to say that I currently have custody of my children and all the false allegations of domestic violence and child abuse were dismissed long ago. I also receive child support monthly. I have an iron-clad separation agreement that ensures my children and I will be protected in the future, too.
