I wish I could give this person a negative rating. Instead of wanting to represent my case with TRUTH and HONESTY, Mr. Leggett, simply took my family's $1000.00 retainer, walked into the courthouse, claimed I was guilty and went straight to plea bargaining. If this is the practice he's displayed for the last 32 years, Im actually amazed he's still in business. He LITERALLY did what a public defender would have done; pandered into the UNjustice system for money. If he wasn't willing to represent me in the light of truth, why did he keep the money? Why didn't he say, I do not believe youre innocent, and pass me onto a more competent attorney? That would have been way more constructive in my life as a family man, than just sticking me on three years probation. I feel violated ,both as a patriotic TEXAN, and as a productive member of my community. I have stood before the court in the past and represented myself better than this guy. And my family wasn't out a RIDICULOUS amount of money. For shame, sir. For shame.
Endorsements from fellow lawyers are an important consideration for many when selecting the right attorney. Be the first to endorse your colleague!
