It's quite scary facing criminal charges. I have complete trust in Ben Leonard. He doesn't judge what you have done or been acuused of doing on criminal cases. He sincerely cares for you as a human being and does everything in his power to get charges dropped or lessoned to much lesser degree of offences. I have had Ben Leonard represent me on 3 separate times facing felonies on most of them. Ben has worked very hard with the district attorney on each of my charges which has been 6 criminal offences and has kept me from all felony charges and kept me from going to jail even with a revocation on Probation. Ben Leonard is by far the best and most qualified criminal defense attorney in this metroplex. I will always refer anyone facing challenges to Ben. He has the upmost repect from me. I want to mention Rachel his legal assistant as well. Rachel is so caring and genuinely cares for each client as well. When I first met her I was talking to her in her office and she could tell I was worried. She took the time and comforted me by her words of encouragement and advice. I love both of them.

Mr. Leonard helped my son get deferred adjudication and explained why he was not eligible for other programs the court has. He was honest, on time, informative, caring, easy to reach , personable and he was assigned to us by the court. If in the future if we should need his assistance we will gladly retain him.

I hired Mr. Leonard for a dwi and two counts of aggravated assault with a deadly weapon charges. Before hiring Mr. Leonard I had met with a few lawyers and he was the only one that made me feel very comfortable in achieving the best possible outcome for my cases. He by far exceeded my expectations, and was able to get me better results than I could have ever imagined. He is very knowledgeable and his advice was invaluable. I can't thank him enough for everything he did for me.

It is my pleasure to endorse Ben Leonard. I first met Ben almost 20 years ago when he was a Tarrant County Assistant District Attorney. Ben is extremely knowledgeable in the area of criminal law and is well respected among fellow defense lawyers, prosecutors and the judiciary. With his extensive criminal trial experience, Ben is the "go to guy" if you have been charged with a criminal matter.
