Mr. Leehey represented me in an accident where a car caused my motorcycle accident causing me physical damage. He did an excellent job in listening to me, preparing the case and representing me in getting the insurance company of the auto driver to settle fairly with me. Initially they had tried to blame me for part of the accident although I was riding down the road following all of the traffic laws.
I would recommend him to anyone looking for an attorney for an accident claim since he was very knowledgable.

Pete did a great job of handling our case. Neither of us had ever been involved in a suit like this and he guided us through each step. He let us know what to expect, as well as how best to prepare for the different parts of the case. He also was very concerned with us as people, not just as a case. It was evident that he cared about us and our situation.

I found Peter to very knowledgeable about my Workman's Comp case. I was treated with respect and Pete had a interest in my case. He kept me well informed and up-to-date on the overall process. When it came time to settle I feel he went in swinging and got me the best settlement I could have received. All in all I would recommend him to be on your side in a dispute. He helped me after the fact when the opposition failed to follow through with the award in a timely manner.
