About me

We help GOOD people in UNFORTUNATE circumstances. My brother and I have over thirty ( 30 ) years combined experience in all CRIMNAL, TRAFFIC AND DRIVER'S LICENSE MATTERS.

We represent thousands of satisfied clients every year. We are both in Court almost every day and are very familiar with most of the Criminal Justice professionals in this area.

Let us put this education and experience to work for you.


I am a Former Prosecutor for the State of Florida here in Palm Beach County and exclusively represent the accused on all Criminal, Traffic and Driver's License related matters throughout South Florida. My borther, Brian Leifert, is my law partner and also a Former Prosecutor who worked in Broward. Together, we represent thousands of good people each year during their individual time of need. I was admitted to practice in 1990 and have been in private practice since 1995.

We offer free consultations on most matters and are in business to HELP other people and help them get the best result possible under the circumstances.
