Recommendation
I am a personal injury attorney who practices in New York. I have referred family, friends and clients to Scott Leonard for more than 20 years. He is hard-working, highly skilled and very attentive to his client’s needs. And most importantly, he gets great results. I strongly recommend Scott if you are in need of a personal injury attorney in New Jersey.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
Scott and his Legal Team are VERY professional and have your best interests in mind at all times. They have kept me well informed about my case along the way and have answered all of my questions and explained everything to me in full detail. From the first meeting I had with Scott, I knew my case was going to be in good hands. I was very confident in this amazing team and cannot thank Scott, Janelle, Stephanie and the other amazing team members for all of their help. You truly are the best at what you do and I cannot thank you all enough for helping settle my case!

Amazing lawyer and team
I am so thankful for the help of Mr. Leonard and his team. Another lawyer I visited in NYC, recommended Scott, for getting hit by a car that happened in NJ right behind my house. I was scared and nervous because I've never sued anyone, or dealt with justice on this scale. Thanks to the Mr. Leonard and his team, they fought tooth and nail to help me get justice and to finally close a painful, embarrassing chapter of my life. Mr. Leonard walked me through the entire process and helped me every step of the way. Scott was always honest when talking to me about the case and answered every question I had. He gave me his personal number if I ever had questions, concerns, I needed to address. Scott would also call me to see how I was doing and give me updates on the case. Truly professional, extremely knowledgeable, and very compassionate. I'll definitely go to him again if I ever need his help.

Personal Attention
Scott & Laura were great and attentive. Scott called you back himself & provided updates without being asked. Scott settled my case in the middle of Covid for more than I originally expected. I would highly recommend them for any of your legal needs.

Taking Care of Business/YOU!
For cases involving personal injury I recommend Scott Leonard and the Leonard Legal Group without reservation. I was in a car accident. I consulted Scott Leonard, he made me feel informed and confident. I hired him. Throughout the case I was kept extremely up to date. When progression was slow Scott Leonard will call me just to check in and let me know he is still doing his due diligence. Scott Leonard changed my life. He is a great person and a great lawyer. I will recommend him to anyone with the appropriate issues. I won my case and I am confident you have a great chance at being a winner as well.

Great Referral
We were referred to Scott Leonard from our family attorney who did not do this type of legal representation. From the moment we met Scott we knew we were good hands! He settled our case and made us feel comfortable with the final outcome. He is/was a pleasure to deal with and I would recommend him over and over agam

Excellent Attorney
In May2016 my wife was involved in a serious auto accident and was injured. We are incredibly grateful to have found Scott Leonard who was referred by a relative. Scott is not just an amazing Lawyer, he is an amazing person. What makes Scott great is his: unwavering candor - Scott will not BS, nor will he give you unfair or unrealistic expectations; relentless client advocacy; constant, consistent and honest communication; professionalism and sincerity. Most of our direct interactions were with Scott, although we know Scott could not do what he does without a great supporting team. If you are looking for a personal injury lawyer, look no further, you will not find better. Not only will you get the best possible financial outcome, you will deal with someone who truly cares about you - well beyond the financial outcome you represent. For example, what attorney reaches out to his client 3 months post settlement just to ask "how are you guys doin..." If this type of Attorney exists, I have only met one. Scott Leonard.

Truly a Super Lawyer
I highly recommend Scott Leonard of Leonard Legal Group. If you are in need of a personal injury attorney, look no further as there is no better choice than Scott Leonard. I entrusted Scott with my own mother and he by far exceeded our expectations. Throughout the whole ordeal, Scott was professional, personable and empathetic. He provided us with sound advice and guidance, making a difficult and stressful situation easier. He treated her like she was his own mother. I am grateful to Scott and all that he has done for my mother.

Awesome experience!
Could not have been happier with how Scott Leonard handled my case. Under promise and over deliver. I was injured on the job, had a cervical fusion and Mr. Leonard walked me through the process. He gave me advice all along and made sure I clearly understood my options. I should also mention that I am the second generation of my family to use the Leonard Legal Group.

Scott Leonard
I first met Scott Leonard after I was referred to him by my chiropractor in 1996. Scott worked hard for me and kept me in the loop for the entire process resulting in excellent compensation for my issue. Naturally, when I had an accident in 2015 I went directly to Scott for help. Through diligent and hard negotiations, Scott, again, was able to obtain a good settlement for me. We just settled today and I am happy. The most important thing about Scott is that he is professional, yet empathetic, as an attorney. I have been very comfortable speaking with Scott and asking him questions about my case. He has the patience of Job and is a genuinely nice person. I truly trust him. Thanks Scott.
