The McLeish Orlando Difference

Our lawyers have successfully represented people who have suffered brain injuries, spinal cord injuries and serious orthopaedic injuries.

We limit the number of individuals we represent to those with the most serious of injuries.  As a result, we are able to devote whatever time and resources are necessary to each client’s case.

Besides a skillful, caring, and experienced team, our most important resource is the relationships we have built with the very best rehabilitation and health care practitioners. The goals of all the professionals at McLeish Orlando Lawyers are to ensure that every client obtains a settlement that will provide security for the future.

I worked with Salvatore Shaw and Arielle Koch at McLeish Orlando for an LTD dispute. Both of them were professional, knowledgeable, friendly, attentive, easy to work with, and prompt to respond to questions and requests throughout the process of resolving our case. I also reached out to them about a personal injury issue for advice which they were also helpful with. I wouldn't hesitate to contact them again.

After my MVA I thought the insurance company would take care of me, I’d recover, and life would go on. After a year had elapsed I started to become fearful of my financial future, as my recovery wasn’t progressing the way I thought it would and I came to the realization that the insurance company only takes care of you for a short period. My workplace would not allow me to return to work, insurance coverages start running out, and I’ve incurred more costs for being injured, all due to someone else’s negligence. I feel lucky and fortunate to have found Salvatore Shaw as Sal and his team were fantastic from the initial consultation until the end. With Sal’s knowledge and experience with personal injury, MVA law he was able to put my fears of financial help at ease after he heard my story. I felt Sal was candid, up front with what he needed from me, and straight up with me, not filling my head with big promises, and I appreciated that. I mostly dealt with Sal’s team after myself and Sal’s first meeting, who were fantastic to work with. My MVA left me with some disabilities that sometimes makes getting to places or getting things done difficult. The patience, help, curtesy, and everything else that was extended by Sal’s staff was exceptional, as they assisted me getting to where I needed to go, and getting what I needed to get done completed. Throughout the process, I met with Sal a number of times where he never strayed from that demeanour I appreciated after our first meeting. Sal or his staff always kept me aware of what was happening, where we were in the process, and I truly believe provided the best legal advice that is available. Thank you Sal and Staff for everything. If you are reading this review scared, confused and don’t know where to turn to navigate through a very complex and expensive system, I highly recommend Salvatore Shaw. Mark.

Kamran Zaidi

Fantastic lawyers overall!! They were very accommodating and helped me get what I needed. They are very straightforward and always checking in. They even go the extra mile at times. If anyone ever needs personal injury lawyers. I recommend Mcleash Orlando day and night. They will get you what you need and what you deserve. Wouldn’t recommend anyone else but them! Would definitely recommend working with Patrick Brown, William Harding, Elena and Cheryl. Their advice was fantastic. Their reply time very quick and they were a great guide for someone who hasn’t been in an MVA before. They are upfront about everything and very clear when it comes to any unknown details. Thank you Mcleash Orlando!

After a life altering accident where another vehicle left my car a loss and left me with life-long personal injuries. McLeish Orlando and every lawyer and clerk who has worked with me and represented me from the firm, from the start to finish has gone above and beyond to make the process as stress-free as possible, with the most positive outcome I could have hoped for. Their representation, dedication, expertise, and compassion shown during my personal injury case was exceptional. I am immensely grateful to the entire team. Would definitely highly recommend them!

From the first conversation I had with Dale Orlando, I knew that I had made the right call. Mr. Orlando explained in clear terms how the process would work and what we could realistically expect, and engaged his team to assist us with our journey. Special thanks to Brandon Pedersen, Nicole Smith, and Kiley Kim for all of their hard work. Brandon worked closely with us, showing great compassion and careful attention to detail, until a fair and just settlement was reached. I would highly recommend the professionals at McLeish Orlando should you ever find yourself in need of the services they offer.
