    Personal Injury refers to civil cases wherein an individual alleges he or she was injured by another person or entity. A person could suffer injuries in an accident, a workplace accident, as a result of a dangerous product, or on property. “Personal Injuries” could also be economic (e.g. Lost Wages) or psychological. People suffer psychological injuries because of trauma associated with injuries, or as a result of witnessing trauma. Before damages, your lawyer will have to prove Negligence.

I began my career as an insurance defense litigator before starting my own practice.  Shortly after that, I was a founding partner of Shook & Stone, Chtd., which has become one of Nevada's preeminent injury and disability law firms.  We have three offices throughout Nevada, in Las Vegas, Reno and Carson City.

Our law firm is recognized by our clients and the Community for both our trial and negotiation skills and integrity.

Outside of my practice, I am deeply committed to serving our Community.  I have served on the Boards and Committees of several Non-profit Organizations, based upon my desire to make a positive impact upon my world.  Among my positions, I am the Immediate Past Chair of the Jewish Federation of Las Vegas, and was recently recognized by the Las Vegas Community for my efforts by the Nevada Cancer Foundation.

My greatest joy, however, comes from my family.  My wife and children inspire, motivate, and encourage me to be the finest trial attorney and human being possible.  I will humbly continue working toward that goal.

HIGHLY RECOMMEND. Give them a call!
Out of all the Personal Injury attorney's I've talked to, Leonard is the most knowledgeable, and you can tell that he really cares about making sure you are taken care of. Accidents are very stressful, causing many questions and unknowns. Leonard helped answer all of my questions and explained the process in a way I could easily understand. I highly recommend calling Leonard at his office at Shook & Stone.

Unbelievable
Leonard Stone is that "one in a million " attorney everyone wants. I was hurt in a car accident and my truck was totalled. The minor driving had the State required liability insurance and nothing more. Needless to say it was not enough to cover everything. As I was searching for an attorney to represent me the anxiety I felt in making my choice was overwhelming. I took a leap of faith and contacted Leonard Stone. I, without a doubt, made the right choice. I arrived for the consultation and was greeted and treated with respect and a level of candor that I was not expecting. Straight forward and honest through the entire case. Leonard Stone is the attorney who sets the bar for the rest.

Rear End Injury
Mr. Stone worked with me through some of the most difficult times in my life. My wife had passed away and now with injuries from a rear end accident. He and his office staff made my life easier going through this without a wife of 48 years to support he through my pain, possible surgery and a long recovery. I know my case is not a normal one, but it shows just how much he and his staff care about there clients. Recommend them without question to anyone.

Accident review
In January of 2013 I was in a car accident on my way to work, at first I suffered Neck and Back stiffness. But just a cople of day later that stiffness turned into Shape Stabbing pain. So I contacted Shook & Stone law office in Las Vegas to handled my accident case. Mr Stone was very professional in handling my case and constantly ensured me that everything was going to be fine. Mr Stone staff was also professional, and at the end of my case my Doctor Bills were paid in full, " Which is a big thing in my book" and I also I received a very LARGE AMOUNT which made me very HAPPY...

He Genuinely Cares
I was on my motorcycle and was hit by a car on a Friday night. Monday morning I met Mr. Stone. He arranged for me to see a really good orthopedic surgeon the same day. He always put my health and care first, and that means a lot to me! The other driver lied about the accident, and I ended up with a ticket and blame for the accident. Mr . Stone fought for me. He had the ticket and blame overturned, and I was surprised at the large settlement he obtained!

A legal experience made simplistic and calming
Leonard Stone's straightforward approach in resolving possible litigation against me for property damage was calming to my stresses. I immediately contacted Mr. Stone upon receiving notice of an ensuing claim against me. This claim involved a rental property of mine where a neighbor insisted that damage to her dwelling was due to negligence on my part. Mr. Stone immediately put me at ease by addressing all of my concerns, reviewing all of my options, and reassuring me that regardless of the path I choose, I will have his full support. Mr. Stone and his staff resolved this issue in a very timely manner and to my satisfaction. After my initial visit, I never had to contact them again as they were continuously contacting me with updates in the case. I found his pricing to be extremely reasonable as I truly believe that no other firm would have provided me the elevated level of service I received for the price I paid.

Professional
Needing a lawyer is not something that most people look forward to but when life situations call for someone with the knowledge and expertise to defend your rights or property there is nobody that I would trust more than Leonard Stone. I was recently contacted by a homeowner that claimed that there was damage done to her house by our plumbing. The losses that could have been incurred to us and our family would have been outrageous if not counseled by Mr. Stone.

Mr. Stone is a well experienced, genuine attorney and person in regards to any injury you come across. I would highly recommend Mr. Stone if you have the unfortunate experience of getting injured at work or in your everyday activities. In addition, I would also recommend Mr. Stone if you are disabled, as the firm has a great reputation in that area as well.

Excellent Support and Service When it Was Needed the Most
A close friend recommended that I contact Shook & Stone after I was involved in a car accident that was the fault of another person. She had worked with them in the past and raved about the excellent customer service and care that she received from their team. I went into working with Shook & Stone with high hopes and they exceeded my expectations in more ways than I could have imagined. Their team was knowledgeable, honest and patient,…all things that I have not experienced working with other law firms. They didn’t treat me like I was just another case in their stack of many, but instead they were very attentive and sympathetic to my situation. They explained my options in a clear and concise way and gave me the freedom to pursue the solution that worked best for me, not the one that would result in the biggest earnings for their company. Shook & Stone is truly the best. If you are looking for a legal team that will put you at ease and find the best solution for you, then you need to call Shook & Stone.
