Over 35 Years of Experience · Board Certified Personal Injury Law Specialist

When you have lost a loved one or have been disabled due to a serious personal injury, choosing an attorney can prove to be a daunting task: You have to entrust this person with the job of securing the compensation you need. On top of that, you need to know this attorney will handle your case effectively while you try to adjust to a new life in the midst of a whirlwind of litigation.

I am Phoenix lawyer Stephen I. Leshner, an Arizona Board Certified Specialist in Personal Injury and Wrongful Death Litigation. I have more than 35 years of experience helping clients get through some of the most confusing, tumultuous and painful periods of their lives. Throughout my career, I have handled nearly every type of personal injury case, from car accidents to medical malpractice to pharmaceutical liability and wrongful death. As a result, I have been included in the prestigious Best Lawyers in America and selected for inclusion in Arizona Super Lawyers magazine.

Devotion to Injured People in the Phoenix Area

At some Phoenix law firms, personal injury and medical malpractice are just small parts of their practices. I devote 100 percent of my practice to these areas. With this narrow focus, I can remain on top of the laws and develop new and creative methods to handling these cases.

My Approach

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.

My approach and my commitment to clients have earned me many accolades over the years. I am rated AV Preeminent* by my peers and have been inducted into the prestigious American Board of Trial Advocates. I served as president of the Arizona Trial Lawyers Association. I have been named to the Arizona Super Lawyers’ list numerous times, as well as listed in The Best Lawyers in America, Who’s Who in America and Who’s Who in American Law.

But none of this is as important as the words of my past clients. I invite you to read what they have to say and decide for yourself if I am the right attorney for you.

Best From the Very First Meeting.

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."
