Leav & Steinberg, LLP is a skilled and experienced law firm that focuses on representing seriously injured individuals. We handle all types of accident cases, including construction accidents, automobile accidents, as well as municipal liability and medical malpractice. The firm was founded fifteen years ago by Edward Steinberg and Daniel Leav. The firm has grown to include eight attorneys and a twelve person support staff. From the outset the firm has focused on providing premier legal representation and excellent customer service.

When the firm was started many other firms were representing their clients using outdated methods. Leav & Steinberg was one of the first firms to incorporate new trial techniques utilizing technology, computer graphics, and advanced case-management programs. The firm quickly established itself as a cutting-edge trial firm. Regardless, Leav & Steinberg’s principal goals of working closely with our clients and achieving recoveries for them have remained the same. We offer free initial consultations with an attorney who is experienced in your type of case. We are selective in the cases that we handle. Although we prepare every case as if it will be tried before a jury, we frequently obtain full value on the case earlier. Our staff speaks English, Spanish, Albanian, Polish and Portuguese.  We are able to assist individuals who speak other languages as well.
