Bay Area Law Firm Provides Sophisticated Litigation and Counseling Services at a Reasonable Cost

Firm Overview

For over 20 years, Oakland-based Leon & Leon has offered creative and attentive client-driven trial and appellate legal representation in Bay Area federal and state courts for a wide variety of commercial and individual disputes in areas such as real estate, construction, employment, environmental, insurance and business contracts and torts.

Attorneys at Leon & Leon have more than 30 years of litigation and counseling experience. Jeff and Debbie Leon worked for two top large California law firms before starting their own firm in 1993. Both Jeff and Debbie were members of the Virginia Law Review and ranked in the top three percent of their respective law school classes. Jeff also clerked for two years for a federal trial judge before he began his 30+ years of legal practice.

The combination of big-firm experience and training and small-firm sensitivity to client needs and litigation costs yields an innovative, cost-effective and time-sensitive approach for each lawsuit and counseling engagement.
