  • Bruce D. Beasley

    I've known Gene since he was an 18 year old freshman in college. We both wanted to pursue careers in the law, and Gene has certainly over the past couple of decades made a big name for himself. Gene is honest, blessed with talent and works hard to obtain the best results possible for his clients. Gene has a heart for people in need. He cares about his clients deeply. Anyone who's dealt with him knows Gene's genuine, the real deal, whether it be judges, opposing counsel or a jury. In short, I highly endorse Gene Leposki to anyone looking for the best lawyer for their unique legal situation.
