Our experience with the Leesfield Scolaro was positive from the first moment we consulted with Ira Leesfield and Tom Scolaro. Tom Scolaro was attentive and helpful throughout a very difficult time for our family. Liana Garcia was our paralegal and was with us every step of the way with insight and compassion, always responding quickly and effectively with any questions or issues as they arose. Tom helped us secure the best outcome in terms of compensation and fought hard throughout to bring a sense of justice to an otherwise senseless tragedy. He did a brilliant job dealing with the investigation, researching evidence, interviewing witnesses, and advocating at the mediation hearing. Tom is extremely articulate and is great negotiator. He makes a point of keeping the client's wishes as his most important guiding concern. Tom's combination of legal expertise, experience, knowledge and genuine empathy was precisely what my family needed during this very difficult time.

My wife suffered a serious injury when we were visiting Miami. We hired an injury lawyer who failed to get us a satisfactory settlement after many months. We transferred our case to Tom and his team. Tom, Renaud and the rest of the team care deeply about their clients and go far beyond the client/attorney relationship. Our experience with Tom and Renaud was very satisfactory from the first moment we consulted with Tom.
Tom and Renaud always responded quickly and effectively to all our questions. They did a brilliant work investigating and researching evidence, interviewing witnesses, and preparing for the mediation hearing.
Tom hired a professional photographer to produce a short documentary video to highlight the amount of pain and suffering which my wife and every member of our family have suffered due to the injury. This video in addition to the many talents of Tom have ensured the satisfactory settlement which we got.
Tom helped us to achieve a very satisfactory settlement, which was more than double what our first attorney managed to negotiate. The amount of investigation and research which Tom and Renaud put in our case was unbelievable. The way and strategy that Tom used to negotiated wit the insurance company was amazing.
Tom is an honest, compassionate, and extremely talented attorney, and above all he is a great negotiator. I would highly recommend him, and his amazing team, to anyone who needs a personal injury lawyer.

Tom is an excellent attorney that you can count on to handle matters with care and concern. He is smart, dedicated, and aggressive. I am proud to have worked with him on cases and learned watching his skills in the courtroom. Highly impressive attorney.

I wholeheartedly endorse this lawyer. I have referred a number of clients to Tom Scolaro. He is professional, courteous and hard-working. His work-ethic and results always exceed expectations. Tom is a "lawyer's lawyer," and I wouldn't hesitate to refer clients to him in the future, nor would I hesitate to hire Tom Scolaro for myself or any of my loved ones, should the need arise.
