About Me

Leslie joined Olson & Olson in 2002. Her deep understanding of the law guides her work and pushes her to always look for more. She works so hard for her clients, that sometimes she uncovers material that surprises everyone -- even her clients. The complexity of multi-million dollar cases does not faze her and her commitment to our community is reflected in her pro bono work.

    I have had Leslie opposite me in two cases. She is one of the top 2 or 3 toughest advocates that I have had the misfortune to encounter in 23 years of practice. She is however charming and gracicous outside of court. If, god forbid, I were to get divorced, Leslie would be one of my top choices of counsel.

    If you’re lucky enough to have Leslie as your lawyer, you’re indeed a fortunate person. Leslie not only knows the law, but she is most effective in Court. She is very thorough and very protective of her clients. I can’t say enough good things about her.
