I always knew I would be an attorney. My uncle was a prosecutor and a successful defense attorney, so why not do what he does? I graduated Cum Laude from the State University of New York at Stony Brook in 1998. I started Seton Hall University School of Law at Newark, New Jersey the fall of that same year, part time. Also that year I got a full time job at a law firm in Elizabeth, New Jersey from which it was an easy 15 minute commute to my night classes to law school for four years. I graduated Seton Hall in 2002 and immediately hung my shingles. I never worked for anyone as a practicing attorney. I did everything an attorney does at the firm I worked at, except of course represent clients in court. When I got my license to practice I went out on my own right away. I was 26 years old. My four years working and studying gave me the confidence and knowledge to take such a leap of faith at such a young age. I am still working for myself as a practicing attorney to this day representing clients in court charged with various criminal, drunk driving and traffic offenses. At this point of my career I am a Certified Municipal Court Trial Attorney by the Supreme Court of the State of New Jersey.

Client Reviews
★★★★★
"Very professional and honest lawyer. Leon built a great lawyer-client relationship and showed up for court on time. He is well known among the judges, and prosecutors. He is definitely the only lawyer you need to handle your legal matters. Leon is my go to lawyer if my family ever needs one. He is professional, well-prepared and organized. I highly recommend him. Leon handled my son's criminal case and got him PTI for a crime that carried serious charges. Thanks Leon!" Judy J.
