  • Michael Gerard Leonard

    I represented a corporation who sued an individual who was eventually represented by Joe. This was a contract suit well on it's way towards a trial. At all stages of the proceedings, from pleadings to depositions, Joe was professional, courteous and a pleasure to deal with. He managed to do this while vehemently defending his client. This case settled following depositions. The settlement was fair to all parties concerned, largely due to Joe's professionalism and competence. Mick Leonard, JD.
