"Steve Leshner is a skilled and extraordinary lawyer! He is extremely intelligent, articulate, and professional. He was clear and concise in his communications. He was responsive and precise in his advice. He fought for us and provided a better result than expected. I have the utmost confidence and respect for him as an attorney and as a gentleman. I was most impressed by his character and integrity, as well as his thoughtful, caring, and kind personality toward my husband and me during a very difficult time in our lives. He is truly a brilliant personal injury attorney!"

"Steve Leshner is, without a doubt, a very skilled, thoughtful and utmost professional litigator. He provided clear and concise legal advice during a very daunting experience for my family and me. From the very first consultation, Steve expressed a true interest in our personal tragedy and gave us an honest initial assessment. He promised only to make further inquiries to seek the complete truth and develop a case, if feasible. He never made any grand promises or guaranteed immediate results. That spoke volumes to me in regards to Steve's personal character, judgment, and integrity. I knew then that Steve was the lawyer my family needed: a professional with a realistic point of view that would be honest with my family at a very sensitive time. Steve and his assistant Tammy went on from that point to handle every aspect of the case and reduced, as much as possible, any further impact on our family. Every estimate and prediction Steve sent to visually relate our case's progress was correct. It left me rarely ever having any questions, and if I had one, he was a simple phone call away. Steve has more than 30 years of experience and is a top lawyer in Arizona for a reason. If you hire Steve and he takes your case, you are in excellent hands. Let him handle the case, trust his advisement, and he will achieve the best outcome for your family as he did for mine."

"Stephen I. Leshner has been an outstanding example of a compassionate and caring attorney who really has the client's interest as his first priority. His professionalism and the professionalism of his Legal Assistant Tamara make the entire legal process easy to understand and follow. All concerns are addressed immediately and explained to you so that you feel comfortable in how the case is moving. I have enjoyed working with Steve and Tamara and highly recommend them to any and all who need a qualified professional law firm to handle a usually very trying situation."

"Mr. Leshner is brilliant, caring, and extremely responsive. I have no words to express how he handled our case. He was thorough, meticulous, and precise. Above all, his ethics and caring nature were touching. He treated us like family."
