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.

  • David Stanley Marshall

    I've had the pleasure of knowing Leslie both as a fellow attorney and as a fellow parent at our children's school. She astounds me with the energy she displays in both those roles. In the legal arena, that energy drives both her brain and her heart. It enables her to get what her clients and their children deserve.

  • John Stocks

    I endorse Leslie Olson mostly because of her legal skills - writing, researching, and arguing a case. She also has a very pleasant demeanor inside and outside the courtroom.
