Hi, I’m Attorney Leslie Jensen.

I have been practicing law in Modesto, CA for over 40 years. I am also a fourth generation farmer from Newman, CA. Modesto is my home and often my clients are friends and children or grandchildren of friends. I do not market my firm, and rely upon referrals from former clients, professional colleagues or personal contacts. I have seen marriages end, companies begin, and have helped clients just like you resolve a variety of legal disputes.

Each client and each case is different. I think it is important to take the time to understand the client or business behind the legal issue to formulate a plan which leads to a successful outcome. The goal of my office is to keep you well informed, include you in every critical decision, and educate you concerning the law and tactical planning. We will sort out your legal issues together as a team.

To make an appointment and discuss your case, call me at (209) 524-3688 or fill out this simple form and I’ll contact you to find a time that is convenient to meet. I hope to see you soon.

Firm History

I began practicing with the Law Offices of Gianelli and Israels in 1980. Shortly thereafter, I became a partner in the firm. My practice areas were: tax planning, corporate planning, estate planning, and business litigation in state, tax, and federal court. I also specialized in creditor representation in bankruptcy court.

Thereafter, I entered into a partnership known as Walden and Jensen where I added family law to my practice.
In 1991, I established my own firm practicing in the areas of family law and business litigation.
