Endorse Leigh
Criminal defense Attorney | Nov 17
Relationship: Fellow lawyer in community
"Leigh's trial consulting skills will help shape your story, presentation of the case, and increase the chances of success. Trial lawyers will quickly appreciate her unique and intuitive ability to figure out the issues that can make a big difference in the outcome of the case. Nothing is too trivial for Leigh. She is an effective problem solver and does not underestimate the emotional or subjective nature of the jury. What I like most about Leigh is her ability to develop effective trial strategies that give the attorney an edge with a compelling narrative that jurors can easily understand. Leigh works well with other members of the trial team and I am happy to endorse her and recommend her to any one looking to hire her as a trial attorney and/or consultant."
