    Leslie Cloyd is a highly experienced and dedicated bankruptcy, insolvency and re-organization attorney. I have personally known and worked with Leslie for over 15 years. We refer to her all of our complex bankruptcy and reorganization matters. I would trust no one else. Leslie's knowledge, integrity and work ethic lead me to believe that she is one of the top bankruptcy and reorganization lawyers in the state of Florida. I wholeheartedly recommend her.
