Steven Leibel

Founding Attorney

In 1988, I began representing individuals in serious personal injury, medical malpractice, and wrongful death cases. Since the beginning, I’ve believed that my responsibility as an attorney goes beyond knowing the law and giving legal information and advice. I want to build long-lasting relationships with those I am fighting for. I want them to know that when they trust Leibel Law, they’re trusting someone who sees them as a name, not a number — a story, not just a case.

For over 40 years, I have fought for my clients like family. It’s important to me to listen to your needs intently, communicate effectively, and win you the benefits you’re entitled to.
