I have been a client for many years of Attorney David Leard. Throughout my entire case (lasting many years) David has been extremely helpful and has always been very precise in answering any questions I may have had. His availability was impeccable whenever I needed him. I would recommend and have recommended him to several people. As a matter of fact, he was recommended to me and I am very happy that I had a chance to meet David and have him handle my case.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I practice only Social Security Disability law. When a client has a Workers Compensation component to his or her claim, I always send that individual to Attorney Leard for assistance. Attorney Leard is knowledgable and compassionate. He is the best Workers Comp attorney that I know.
