About me

 In the area of employment law, Kevin focuses his practice on representing employees.  Kevin regularly appears before the Department of Labor, New Hampshire Commission for Human Rights, the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) and state and federal courts on behalf of employees. As a recognition of his commitment to employees, Kevin was selected by other lawyers to serve as President of the New Hampshire Chapter of the National Employment Lawyers Association. With his experience and record of success, Kevin has written employment law articles and appeared as a lecturer to other attorneys on employment law topics.  Kevin has been involved in important employment law cases before the New Hampshire Supreme Court to protect employee's rights.

In addition to representing employees, Kevin also protects the interests of personal injury victims in automobile accidents, personal injury, medical malpractice and workers' compensation.

    Kevin Leonard is well known as an excellent plaintiff's lawyer in both personal injury and employment law cases. He has obtained substantial verdicts on behalf of his clients through dogged determination and aggressive advocacy. He also knows the value of a case and can provide his clients with the benefit of his experience in efforts to settle. I highly endorse Kevin and frequently refer clients to him.
