Outstanding Lawyer!
My siblings and I hired Steve to help us with a lawsuit regarding matters over the recent death of a family member. None of us had been involved in a lawsuit before and Steve was genuine and honest throughout the whole case. He kept us all calm and in the loop, and never once made it seem like we a burden, even with the simplest questions. He is incredibly knowledgeable and is not afraid to take on challenges. Most of all he showed he truly cared about us and our needs, by taking our individual concerns into consideration with every letter, move or motion he made during the case. He is incredibly respectful inside and outside the courtroom, but is also resilient and tough. Trust me, you'll want Steve and his team representing you!

Knowledgeable, Professional, Courteous, Results-oriented
After a family member's death in a car crash, we knew we needed an attorney to help us understand the legal process and our rights as a family. Within 24 hours of the accident, attorneys as far away as Minneapolis started contacting us with offers to assist with a wrongful death lawsuit. We wanted a reputable, local attorney to help guide us through this horrible experience no family should have to face. Luckily, we found Steve in Bismarck. During our first meeting, it was obvious he was a very knowledgeable attorney and we felt comfortable we were "in the right hands." Steve proved to be professional and courteous. He was respectful of every family member's feelings during this very difficult time. Steve provided thorough explanations we could all understand. We found Steve to be honest and appreciated his results-oriented, hard work and knowledge about the insurance industry as well as wrongful death litigation and lawsuits. We have been so confident with Steve's work, his law firm gets all our legal business now.

You can rest and relax with Steven Leibel on your side!
I hired Steve Leibel to help me with a lawsuit and some mineral and land issues. Because of Steve's high standards, integrity and honesty, I felt comfortable and relieved to have Steve on my side. He can be persistent, tough and play hardball when necessary, but he is also respectful and caring towards his clients and their needs. It is this balance that makes him an outstanding lawyer. Steve communicated legal jargon so even complicated information was simple to comprehend. He is easy to talk with, and he is an attentive listener. Steve is someone you can trust. I am grateful and appreciative of the great service he provided and highly recommend him for your legal needs.

So glad that Steve took my case
I called Steve after seeing his name on here and I could not be more happy with his performance. He has been honest and a man of his word. He calls when he says he is going to call which to me meant I was important to him as a client. He has been straight forward with me about my case the whole time. These reviews are not my strong suit so I guess what I am trying to say is that I trust and respect him a 100% and would recommend him to anyone that is in need of a personal injury lawyer.

"I endorse this lawyer. Steven Leibel is probably the best civil litigation I have ever encountered in my almost 20 years of practice which includes the large metropolitan areas of Seattle, WA and Minneapolis, MN. He is an attorney you can count on to tell you what you need to hear (as opposed to what you want to hear) which is exactly how your attorney should be. If I had a civil matter that required a lawyer I would hire attorney Steven Leibel in a heartbeat. And so should you."
