Richard Lawrence Leeds

About me

I am admitted to the State Bars of both California and Illinois. I graduated from John Marshall Law School in Chicago in 1981, and practiced law in my home town of Chicago for 6 years until moving to Southern California. (I am now voluntarily on "inactive" status in Illinois since my practice is solely in California). I have been providing professional and personalized legal services to the Los Angeles/San Fernando Valley and Ventura County communities since 1987.

More than anything, I am especially proud of the client relationships that I have established during my 25+ years of practice. The majority of my clients are referrals from other satisfied clients and their friends, relatives and business associates. I do my best to provide each client with the most practical legal solution for their specific problem at the most reasonable cost. I have received numerous thank you letters and calls from clients acknowledging the satisfactory results which they have received as a result of my representation.

I also am a strong believer in "giving back" to the community, and I have served for a number of years as an unpaid senior's advocate at the Reseda Senior Center as well providing Disaster Assistance and information for families after major catastrophies.

Besides being a member of the State Bars of California and Illinois, I am admitted to practice in the United States District Court for the Central District of California and as well as for the Northern District of Illinois

Please contact me if you need assistance; I would be happy to consult with you regarding your particular situation, and to offer you my analysis of your situation as well as my plan of strategy for success in your legal matter.
