Joshua F. February 2, 2021
Understanding, empathetic, selfless, expert, and effective Over the course of the last several years I have needed to hire at least five different attorneys, not including Mr. Leslie, for various business and criminal matters. Every time the level of service and outcome left me disappointed. However, when I met Mr. Leslie, I was pleasantly surprised with his sincerity and genuine concern for our situation. And those qualities proved themselves over the course of our litigation. Furthermore, in the past I’ve had attorneys cost us due to both oversight of important matters concerning our cases and, at other times, simply giving bad advise. But Mr. Leslie has a mind for the law and his advise has been well researched and thought out. For us he is not only a professional that we have come to rely on in matters of business, he has become a friend our family looks to as a true counselor. The standard I use when recommending someone is if I would recommend them to my sons and daughters. The answer regarding Mr. Leslie is a resounding yes. He is the paragon of professionalism. He is clear to understand and gives sound advise. He is an expert in law. He is the lawyer my family trusts above all others.

Claimed Lawyer ProfileSocial MediaResponsive Law

Frustrated by big-city lawyers who charge high fees and give impersonal service? I've been practicing law in the DFW area since 1985 and am committed to giving you personal, affordable service. I've been helping businesses from the corner store to Fortune 100 corporations and individuals of moderate to substantial means with their commercial law needs since 1980. I promise you 100% personal service. When you hire John Leslie | PLLC, you work directly with me, and not with a paralegal or clerk. For my business clients, my goal is to provide realistic solutions and cost-effective services. I represent individuals and business in all types of bankruptcy matters, whether they are debtors or creditors. And, I help clients solve business disputes through negotiation, mediation and when necessary, in the courthouse. My law degree is from Notre Dame Law School and I was awarded my MBA Degree with honors from the Mendoza College of Business at Notre Dame. I've been named to Who's Who in American Law and have been named as one of KTVT- 11's (DFW CBS affiliate) Inspiring People for my work at local high schools, speaking at student assemblies on the dangers of alcohol and drug abuse by teens. I encourage prospective clients to meet with me to discuss their legal needs, because I believe that establishing a personal connection with clients helps me provide worthwhile solutions. There is never a fee for any initial consultation, whether in person, by phone or through email. My office is located just west of the intersection of Fielder Road and Park Row Drive. I've designed it to feel more like your home than a law office, because that's important to me.
