I am a prosperous lawyer with over 20 years of practice in the courtroom and skill as a former law enforcement police officer.
I received my Juris Doctorate law Degree from the University of San Diego School of Law (USD) in 1990 and graduated from San Diego State University in 1986 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Criminal Justice Administration. I have been a committed member of the California State Bar since 1990 and was admitted to practice in the United States District Court Southern District of California since 1991.
In the legal profession, as in life, the Leslie Legal Group strives for excellence. Just as the athlete strives to compete successfully and win, so do we. . . in life…and in the practice of law.
At the Leslie Legal Group, we believe that the commitment to excellence is a day-to-day process that brings about definable, quantifiable and tangible results. It is our philosophy, and it is our goal to achieve excellence.
I am proud to serve my profession and my community by promoting professionalism in the court on behalf of my clients. I have been an affiliate of many Criminal Defense and Civil Litigation Organizations locally and abroad – CBA, ABA, ATLA, CPDA, CACJ, BANSDC, OAC, SDCBA and NACDL. As a criminal defense lawyer, I have functioned as President/Chair of the local criminal defense bar association and Board of Directors for the Lawyer Referral Service (LRS) and the North County Bar Association. I have also served as a Judge Pro Tempore in the San Diego Superior Court and have participated in many volunteer court programs such as, On My Honor, Law Day and others.
We are proud that the majority of our business has come from direct referrals from previous clients and other professionals. This fact alone speaks to our dedication to personal care and concern for our clients, as well as our absolute professionalism and ethics. You will never see our reputable name on direct solicitation advertisements or jail mail.
At the Leslie Legal Group, we take pride in our knowledge of the law and the sensitivity to each client’s legal needs and concerns. This includes strict confidentiality. We are an aggressive law firm, which means that we consistently strive to be the best at what we do in order to exceed our clients’ expectations.
To us, the commitment to excellence means striving for achievement at every turn. This dedication brings about an atmosphere of success that enables us to confidently offer the best legal service to our clients in areas that we practice. This commitment to our clients has resulted in Mr. Leslie achieving the highest rating (“AV,” Very High to Preeminent) available from Martindale-Hubbell, the most reputable independent legal rating source in the Country.
