  • Patricia Camuzzi Luber

    I worked with Leslie for four years in Atlanta, GA. When I first started working she was a senior attorney who I turned to for any immigration question and appellate matter. Leslie always had an answer and would take the time to brainstorm with me to figure out the best solution for the client. She truly cares about her clients and is one of the most compassionate people I know. Leslie has tremendous experience in both immigration litigation and appellate immigration matters. She takes the time to make sure the job is done right. Leslie is known amongst her peers as a knowledgeable attorney and is well-respected. I highly recommend and endorse this lawyer.
