I, myself, am a graduate of Kent State University located in Kent, Ohio.  I graduated with Honors and hold a Bachelor of Business Administration Degree in Economics.  I then pursued a legal career and attended the Western Michigan University - Cooley Law School in Lansing, Michigan.  After law school, I began my legal career as an Assistant Public Defender with the 20th Judicial Circuit Public Defender’s Office in Lee County, Florida.  After leaving my employment position with the State of Florida in 2002, I joined a private criminal defense law firm in Fort Myers, Florida.

Now, I am the managing partner in the law firm of Leskovich Law Group, P.A.  My firm has compiled a team of creative thinkers, hard workers and dedicated employees to help me, and to help you, through your legal difficulties.  Because of hard work and dedication, our firm represents clients in all of Southwest Florida, and the throughout the State of Florida.

When interviewing prospective attorneys, be sure to ask how many trials these attorneys have completed and for what types of crimes they have defended.  I am an experienced criminal and family trial lawyer; who will put my knowledge, experience and history to work for you.
