    Joel Leppard 10 BIG STARS!!!!!
    There's only one word to describe Joel and is that is "AWESOME !!!! I never use that word but in this case I have to make an exception. First day I walked in his office I felt comfortable and at ease discussing my case with him...like if he was an old friend. He gave me the sense that he is confident at what he does. I contacted several attorneys on New Year's Eve and only he, took the time to text me right away. This alone impressed me. It came down to him and another attorney but thank God I went with my gut instinct. He's a professional that cares about his work and clients. He had my careless driving charge dismissed before arraignment. And I'm most definitely sure if it came up to fighting it all the way Mr. Leppard would have been by my side. Most attorneys care about money and the easy was out...plea bargaining...he never gave me this impression. 10 stars and I highly recommend him.

    Mr. Leppard is awesome at what he does. I was stressed out about an incident that had occurred with my family and Mr. Leppard spoke with the state attorney and got my case DISMISSED🙏🙏🙏 He also was always available when I needed to speak with him. Matter of fact he accepted my case on a weekend and most law firms are closed on the weekend but Mr.Leppard was available. I would refer him to anyone that is seeking an criminal defense attorney!!!!! Thanks again, Regina Fullwood

    From the moment I met Joel, I had no doubt in my mind that I wanted him to be the one to represent me and fight for me. He is very confident in his skills and definitely gives his all in what he does. Joel makes himself available at all times of day and night. He makes sure to respond back promptly and is always willing to talk. I would recommend Leppard Law to anyone who wants a lawyer that will fight hard for them.

    A Friend and A Lawyer
    Working with Joel has been an absolute pleasure. You can tell the second he takes a case he is very much so dedicated to it, and ensuring he fights for what you expect. He is an awesome person, and an awesome lawyer. Very professional and very down to earth at the same time. The big point of finding a lawyer is hiring someone who will explain everything to you if you ask, Joel will not hesitate to ensure you know what he is talking about and you know the situation. I am definable impressed with the output on his end for the cost at the end. He works very hard to make sure you are happy at the end of the day. Currently still have him working on my case and I have not regretted choosing him even for a second. Thank you Joel!

    Above and Beyond
    Joel is the most upstanding lawyer I've ever had the chance to interact with. I approached him to retain his services for a VOP case. He immediately began acting proactive towards my case, and kept in touch with me every step of the way. He thought that my case had the possibility to be thrown of court, and guided me to take the proper actions in case it could not be. I ended up having financial problems and was forced to use a public defender who did not have the same views about my case being thrown out. Today, my case was thrown out after going to court three times. The prosecution caught the error in my filings and decided to throw out the case. This proves Joel's insight, knowledge, and ability is far beyond the average lawyers. I recommend Joel to my family and friends at every opportunity. If there was anyone I'd want in their corner, it's him. P.S. Joel you go above and beyond your duty, and you should never lose that. Thank you for being a great human being.

    Joel has been amazing from the very beginning. I have never needed this kind of assistance before and my anxiety has been through the roof, especially with all the problems the system has created with my unique case. Joel has not only been completely flexible, understanding and helpful but he took me on and helped ease my fears and anxiety all while being sick himself! I am so extremely greatfull and blessed for his assistance in this difficult time!

    An attorney that is on his way to the top
    I was charged with a felony and the accusing party is a corporate power house. After being arrested, spending tons of money and using 2 previous lawyers I hired Joel. He was able to see new an underlying evidence in the case which cause it to be dismissed. I know for sure if I have any other legal issues he will be the first I contact. Thanks Joel

    Caring lawyer that helps people
    To be upfront Joel is my son. I have watched him care for his clients. He introduced me to one client Walter a homeless man which as a family we got involved in Walter's life to try to help him. Joel has jumped in there and helped Walter several times, getting some of his charges dropped. I am so proud to see Joel as a loving and caring lawyer that sees his job helping folks through the mystery of the justice system. I have recommended Joel to several friends and they all have come back and praised what Joel did for them. He is not just a lawyer; he is a caring human that helps people.

    Knowledgable Orlando Attorney
    Mr. Leppard represented my boyfriend in a Criminal Law case. Just when I thought we'd lost all hope, I hired Joel Leppard. I'd been referred to him by a friend. I'm thankful I was, because if it wasn't for all of Joel Leppard's work and knowledge of my boyfriend's rights, I wouldn't of had my boyfriend/ father of my child, home for our child's birthday. I will call upon Joel Leppard for any future needs and will be referring him to anyone that needs a thoughtful, honest attorney.

    Case DISMISSED !!!
    I had a case in traffic court, that really was a criminal charge, and I felt that I was innocent. I had plead Not Guilty and was told by the judge that the offense carries up to 6 months in jail (the judge sufficiently scared me)... So, I called Mr. Leppard. He spent quite a bit of time on the phone with me, giving me guidance and talking with me in a respectful and professional manner. Even though my court date was at 8:30 the next morning, Mr. Leppard took my case. Hiring Mr. Leppard was the best move I made ... He skillfully got my ticket dismissed without any penalty or court costs. It was the BEST possible outcome!!! If you have a need for an attorney... I recommend Mr. Leppard

    knowledgable and calls back
    I looked at Leppard Law's reviews online and thought I would like him. I like that I can text this attorney. I texted him and we set up a phone call. When I called him about my case, he immediately loked my case up online and told me stuff that I didn't know about how cops try to trick you into hurting your case. He was very confident and knowlege all about DUIs. I called him again today about my driver's license issues and he always returns my calls quickly.

You truly are the best attorney I have ever had! Thanks again for being a great lawyer and thanks again for just being there... Brittney

What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
Every person is unique. Every case is unique. Most people contact us over the phone or via our website/email. However, some people contact me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram (or even Snapchat). I am available to take your phone calls at all hours of the night and I respond to texts and emails. Some of my clients think that I'm crazy, the hours that I work. Maybe they're right. But aren't you glad that I will be working for YOU?
What questions should customers think through before talking to professionals about their project?
-How many cases they are currently taking on? (To see whether they will treat you like a real person or just a number) -What is your Avvo rating? (You should look for a perfect 10.0) -Are your reviews verified/screened reviews (such as on Thumbtack and Yelp)? -Can you show me examples of reviews by ACTUAL clients? Would any of your former clients be willing to speak with me?
