A Partner at Devereaux, Stokes, Fernandez & Leonard, P.C. proves he’s willing to do whatever it takes to protect his clients.
We’ve always been known as a firm who understands our clients’ problems and isn’t afraid to get their hands dirty in order to do the best job possible on behalf of our clients. We listen. We do our homework. We try to truly understand what went wrong so that we can help a jury understand what our client has gone through. Pictured here is our own attorney, Partner Jim Leonard. We love it when the guy whose name is on our letterhead is not afraid to put on a water survival suit. He is working on the case of a mother with her grown daughter who were out for a paddle boat ride when the boat flipped over dumping them into the lake. Tragically, the mother drowned because of the accident. Jim is seen here with our expert David Stewart Smith, PhD. Smith is a retired Coast Guard commander and published author on the topic of accidental drownings. They spent the day in the lake with the actual paddle boat trying to determine how this happened. The case is pending and we can’t give away too many details, but suffice it to say that we are confident that all this hard work will allow us to show a jury that this horrible accident and death could have been avoided.
