  • Jonathan P Sheldon

    I endorse this lawyer. Mr. Leibig is among the very best criminal defense lawyers in Northern Virginia and Washington D.C. Perhaps the best compliment another lawyer could give: if a family member needed the services of a criminal defense lawyer, I would hire Mr. Leibig.
