Good Laywers. Good Reviews.

Attorney Leandro Alhambra Reviews, Representing Woodruff Johnson & Evans with Dignity and Class.

Law firms, big and small, understand the importance of referrals and positive word-of-mouth marketing. They spend a significant portion of their marketing budget trying to obtain positive client reviews to compete for business. Social media and review sites like Facebook and Google Reviews allow law firm clients to leave reviews, which provide prospective clients insight to the type of representation and service they can expect. Does the attorney return phone calls timely? Is he/she attentive? Professional? A good communicator? This is valuable information to have when choosing legal representation.

Recently, Attorney Leandro Alhambra, in one day received not one, but two glowing reviews from two separate clients, on two separate media outlets!!We are proud that Lee's clients recognize the compassion, personalized guidance, and dedicated representation that he provides. Lee's clients wrote:

Attorney Leandro Alhambra Reviews: Good Lawyers. Good Reviews.

“Very professional, detailed and courteous. My case was handled with ease and I'm very grateful! Woodruff Johnson & Evans Law Offices will represent you well and fight for you. Leandro Alhambra is a lawyer I would highly recommend. ”– Dylan C.
