Hiring a lawyer was a very scary thing for me…however, from my first phone call with Salvatore Shaw until present day he has made this an easy, calm and friendly experience. Sal is very professional and always treats me with respect.
The staff are all very friendly, accommodating, and very helpful…they were always there for me!
I highly recommend McLeish Orlando Lawyers!

Having to deal with the aftermath of a serious accident is never enjoyable but the McLeish Orlando team of Sal Shaw and his associates made it a good experience and inspired confidence in the eventual outcome.
The whole team displayed excellent communication skills and were always accommodating when arranging appointments.

Suzanne Wright

I was in a car accident in February 2017. It was a horrible experience and it changed my life. If it wasn’t for my lawyer, Lindsay Charles, I don’t know how I would have gotten through any of it. Going through a situation like this is so hard, but Lindsay and her entire team went way above and beyond to ensure that I got everything that she felt I deserved.

I’ve dealt with this law firm for 7 years and wish I could give them 10 stars. Being in an accident was traumatic but Patrick Brown and his team made me feel hope at the end of a tunnel. No money will ever replace what I’ve lost but Patrick and Nick made sure I got the best settlement available. Best law firm hands down and I will recommend them for the rest of my life.

The team at McLeish Orlando helped me immensely throughout my MVA claim, giving me sound advice and guiding me through the whole process! Responses to my questions via email were sent in a timely fashion and written with care. Every step taken by the McLeish Orlando team during my claim was explained and made transparent. I greatly recommend them to anyone in need of fair and transparent legal help.

Being in a Motorcycle accident is a scary event. I had no idea about lawyers, insurance or what would happen next. As I was laying in the hospital waiting for surgery a friend called and recommended that I call McLeish Orlando. I called, and within a few hours Dale Orlando, Joseph Cescon and their team was at my hospital bed.
I highly recommend if you are injured in any way, Call the team at McLeish Orlando.
