What Our Clients Say
My experience working with John McLeish, far exceeded my expectations. McLeish Orlando’s knowledge, skill and attention to detail made the process of my lawsuit far much less traumatic than I expected. The injury I suffered was life changing.
During a very vulnerable and stressful time in my life, John’s team of incredibly dedicated staff connected me with the best doctors and health care professionals. The encouragement, the explanation of what was going on at all times, and the continuous communication was very comforting to me. The final settlement was significantly more than I expected. It gave me a fresh start and allowed me to live my life.
