In law school, he was awarded the Grace Holznecht Scholarship in recognition of outstanding achievement. He was involved in student government and had the honor of representing his class as he worked closely with students, administrators, and professors.

After law school, he started his career with a well respected insurance defense firm in Racine. He soon recognized his preference was for helping the injured, not fighting them.

After a decade serving the personally injured, he co-founded Action Law Offices, S.C. with Attorney Steven C. Gabert in 1999. Today, there are three Action Law Firm offices in Wisconsin.

He has served on the Board of Directors for the Marquette University Club of Milwaukee and on the Board of Directors for the LAO Family Community Center in Milwaukee where he also served as interim Chairman of the Board. He has lectured extensively to high school students and community organizations on the various aspects of the law. Attorney Leffler is currently a member of The Wisconsin State Bar Association, the Milwaukee Bar Association and Racine Bar Association. He has served on the mediation committee of the Milwaukee Bar Association. He was formerly the President of the Racine Bar Association and served as a member of the Board of Governors. He is a member of the American Association for Justice, formerly known as the American Trial Lawyers Association. He is also a member of the Wisconsin Association of Justice. He has been admitted to practice law in all courts in Wisconsin, including the Eastern and Western Federal District Courts.

Before Contacting a Personal Injury Lawyer, You Should Know:

The insurance adjustor is on the insurance company’s side, not yours.

Some are aggressive and try to scare people into not making a claim or into accepting very little compensation. Other adjustors seem kind and helpful — and then use your own words to deny your claim. The bottom line: the less the insurance company has to pay out, the more incentive the adjustor has.

We will investigate to establish liability and damages.

Our law firm has extensive resources to investigate an accident and assess who was at fault, regardless of the accident type. We work with a range of investigators and experts whose expertise provides crucial information for our determination of a fair settlement value.

Our attorneys can explain your coverage and your rights.

If you were hit by an uninsured or underinsured driver, your insurance company may fail to tell you about your rights under your own policy. We can also help you understand your medical coverage under your health insurance policy.
