Leslie is an experienced litigator who believes that seeing the big picture in litigation requires attention to the smallest details. A born problem solver, Leslie balances his thorough preparation and forceful advocacy with creative approaches designed to achieve successful resolutions as quickly and efficiently as possible.
Focusing his practice on construction litigation, Leslie builds strong working relationships with a broad range of clients, from architects and engineers to subcontractors and material suppliers. His practical approach to litigation, emphasis on clear, consistent client communication, and acute awareness of the financial implications of prolonged litigation make Leslie a valued and trusted advisor for those facing complex litigation matters.
When not working on legal solutions for his clients, Leslie is usually coaching young skydivers at the local drop zone, participating in formation skydives, riding his motorcycle through the hill country, or spinning wrenches under the hood of his truck.
Leslie joined Sheehy Ware & Pappas in 2019 as a member of the Construction Litigation, Insurance Law, and Products Liability practice groups.
