LEON F. SPIES
Ask Leon why he became an attorney, and he’ll tell you that the 1970s brought all kinds of intriguing political drama. Between his economy-focused college courses and the slew of controversies caused by the Nixon administration, Leon says it was hard not to see law school as a good next step.
Now, after decades as a criminal defense attorney, it’s safe to say that Leon was right in pursuing a career in law. Today, he is primarily known for two things: his incredible success rate in trial and his immaculate handlebar mustache.
Why Criminal Defense?
When someone is charged with a crime, most people tend to jump straight to judgment — but not Leon. Leon has always recognized that things are never as black and white as we might wish they could be. People make mistakes, get falsely accused, and can simply be in the wrong place at the wrong time. That shouldn’t prevent them from getting the best criminal defense available.
Regardless of how a person came to be put under criminal investigation, Leon believes that they deserve strong, unbiased legal representation. And that’s exactly what he provides.
