While we understand financial compensation will not shorten your pace of recovery or ease the fear of aggressive dogs, it can ensure you receive the medical care needed, return to work healthy, and do not need to stress over paying routine bills and daily expenses. You can require the dog’s owner to pay for:

  • Medical costs and emergency medical care;
  • Ongoing physical therapy or seeing a specialist;
  • Surgeries and plastic surgery;
  • Investigation and documentation of your injuries;
  • Lost wages;
  • Pain and suffering and emotional distress; and
  • Other damages.

By demanding these costs and losses, you hold that owner responsible for their dangerous dog and speed up your chance of recovery. These outcomes are important to you, and the Law Office of David S. Leigh, P.C. helps you achieve them.

David has helped my small business (photography) with several proposals and bid letters. He also took the time to explain the language of each letter. I would definitely use David again for all the legal needs of my business! William F Spencer

I worked with David while at the District Attorney's office. David is very knowledgeable in the law. David has outstanding attention to detail and the critical ability to see the big picture, then find and question the inconsistencies in the reports. This is a fundamental skill that makes a good criminal defense lawyer great. I highly recommend David.

David is a first-rate trial lawyer. Having had the opportunity to both watch him in trial and personally try a case with him, I can say that I would be glad to have him working with me on a case. His delivery is excellent, as is his ability to connect with a jury.

Knowledgable and great to work withI can't say enough good things about David. My husband needed his help with language for documents he'd need for his business. David was knowledgeable and told us exactly what we needed to hear. I can't think of anyone else I'd want to work with. The next time we need legal counsel, we're calling David.

When my mother suffered back and shoulder injuries due to a car accident, Mr. Leigh went above and beyond to make sure she was rightfully compensated for her traumatic ordeal. He was tough with the insurance company yet very patient with my older mom, as he navigated her through these complex negotiations. He exemplifies what a personal injury attorney should be and we highly recommend him.

David is a top-notch lawyer who is very diligent in all that he does. He is not only a sharp legal mind, but actually has interpersonal skills that make him a caring advocate for his clients. I have had the privilege of working with David in private law practice and can easily say that few attorneys match him in personability, advocacy, verbal ability, and in-court and deposition strategy.
