Riley Safer Holmes & Cancila LLP

Leader, loyal advocate, and logical strategist are words used by colleagues and clients alike to describe Leslie. Comfortable and assured, with a special brand of “no nonsense” makes Leslie a favored litigator and a formidable opponent. For over two decades, Leslie has served as lead counsel for many jury trials, bench trials, and arbitrations, obtaining favorable verdicts for her clients in complex and high-stakes cases.

Leslie’s contagious energy and valuable insight mixed with her natural talent has been her formula for success. Leslie has successfully defended numerous corporations in multi-million-dollar exposure cases, including catastrophic injury and wrongful death product liability cases, negligence and premises liability cases, insurance and consumer putative class actions with thousands of potential class members, and business and employment disputes. Leslie routinely leverages her broad experience and honed trial skills with early offensive strategies to achieve unmatched results for clients. In fact, clients tout Leslie’s command of several practice areas and overall general litigation knowledge as an invaluable benefit to working with her and having her as a trusted advisor.

Honored by a number of professional and community organizations, Leslie is recognized as a connector, a mentor, and a trailblazer among her peers, colleagues, and friends. She has served on several educational, health, and other non-profit boards to support the needs of both the legal field and the broader community.
