Mr. Leipold helped my daughter in a traffic violation which could have cost her much money in fines, possible jail time, loss of license, and a bad record. Mr. Leipold was able to prove that DeKalb County was at fault, and charges against my daughter were all dropped with the exception of one small fine. We had agonized over this case for a year, trying to do battle against an insurance company. It has been a great relief to have this taken care of. Mr. Leipold was polite, considerate, informative, and had direct communication with those who had the power to dig up the needed information.

I hired Mr. Leipold for 2 aggravated assault charges that I was faceing when 2 sisters came to MY HOME & attacked me with a weapon! One of which I have a harrasment warrant against! I paid him a total of $3400 of the $7500 that he wanted before I fired him from my case. He was very rude & uninformative. When I would ask questions he was short with his answers and seemed agrivated by the questions that I had to ask because he didn't inform me of anything. All he was concerned about was my payments and trying to get me to go to trial on a VERY EASY self defense case which he wanted $12,500 to represent me. I found out on Monday 4 days before I was due to be in court that he wouldn't even be at my court date nor would he be sending someone in his place but I had to attend. I fired him that Wed. and hired Ross & Pines (Mr. Schwartz & Mr. Pines) on the same day. My case was finished and over with on that very same Friday! Less than 48 hrs of hiring them!!! Ross & Pines worked out a great deal with the DA & my charges were dropped to a misdemeanor an (Array/public fighting) where I got probation and community service. I get to have my recorded expunged after I complete probration! Ross & Pines helped me save time and money! Mr. Leipold is a RUDE, INCONSIDERATE, MONEY HUNGRY, RIPOFF!
