Thank you
Brian made a very difficult time easier. He and his assistant were always there to answer any questions and keep me informed every step of the way. Even after the case was settled he was still there to help us whenever we needed. I appreciate it and would happily recommend him to other families who find themselves in similar situations.

Personal review for Brian Leonard
Brian was extremely professional, knowledgeable, and considerate while handling my medical malpractice suit. He kept me informed of everything going on during this time and gave me answers for all my questions. He told me what steps would be followed and the possible outcomes. His perseverance resulted in a good outcome at the end without having to undergo a jury trial. I would highly recommend Brian to anyone needing an excellent attorney.
