Leslie Shergill works in the family law department focusing on divorce, custody, support, domestic violence, and other family-related litigation.
Leslie enjoys helping clients find their “new normal” during what is often the most stressful and overwhelming transitional period in their lives. When she became a paralegal at age 19 for a family law attorney, she quickly gained the trust of clients who came to know her as someone who worked hard for the issues important to them while doing so in a compassionate and understanding manner.
Several years later, Leslie was hired by a Sacramento judge as a courtroom clerk where she became familiar and comfortable with courtroom processes, procedures, and trials. This led her to excel on her mock trial team in law school where she competed in two national competitions. She made it to the final round in one and qualified for and attended the national finals in the other where only a handful of the best law school mock trial teams compete. During law school, she also interned for two Yolo Family Court judges and gained invaluable insight on family law issues from a court’s perspective.
Leslie’s range of legal experience coupled with her maturity and level-headed approach to conflict resolution are a good fit for family law, but it is her drive in the courtroom and in negotiating conflict that sets her apart.
