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.

We are able to assist individuals who speak other languages as well.
