Joseph Patrick Lesniak

About Me

I appreciate challenging myself whether it is arguing a point in court, researching a point of law, serving my community as president of the library board, chairman of the county drug and alcohol advisory board, scoutmaster of the local Boy Scout Troop or by scaling a 100 feet rock face in the Adirondacks, backing on the Appalachian Trail or kayaking around the islands near Bar Harbor.  I have found the best way to overcome challenges is three fold: 1) experience, 2) preparation, 3) never, never, never quit.  I bring these same qualities to my client's cases ensuring they receive the best representation and ensuring justice is served.
