Insight, Reputation, Personal Service
At some law firms, personal injury is just one of their many practice areas. I devote 100% of my practice to this area. By focusing exclusively on personal injury I can remain on top of the laws and can develop new and creative methods to handling these cases. To learn more about the types of cases I handle, visit my practice areas.
I generally take on about two cases per month because it allows me to devote my full, one-on-one attention to each client. In fact, I only accept cases when I feel confident that I can secure compensation for clients and have settled cases that other lawyers had deemed impossible. As a result of my success, recognition by my colleagues, and commitment to my clients, I have served as President of the Arizona Trial Lawyers Association, been inducted into the prestigious American Board of Trial Advocates, named an Arizona Super Lawyer numerous times, listed in Who's Who in America and Who's Who in American Law, and AV©-Rated* by my peers.
If you've been injured, please contact me online or call 866-907-2039 to schedule a case evaluation. When my clients call to speak to me, I'm almost always directly available to address their questions or concerns.

"After my husband was critically injured in a bicycle accident I knew I had to look for legal counsel. After speaking with others and getting multiple opinions, I finally came across Stephen Leshner. I found Steve very easy to talk to and I felt confident in his answers to my endless questions. I knew after our first meeting that Steve would be the best lawyer to handle the situation. I truly believe that Steve was working on a plan even before all the paperwork was completed. Steve allowed me the time to take care of my husband when my husband needed me the most. Steve is very knowledgeable and confident and was able to assist our family in every aspect during this very difficult time. I truly feel that there is no limit to the care and compassion that Steve will provide for his clients. Steve took the time to answer all of my questions no matter what time of the day or night including weekends. During the course of the trial Steve did not disappoint. He did indeed take care of everything, as promised, and what he did not take care of Tammy did. Steve and Tammy both treated us as family. Now that our case has settled, Steve and Tammy will always hold a special place in our hearts and always be considered part of our family. I would not even think twice about consulting Steve if an issue ever presented itself again."
