“Leah took my case when I believed I was a goner, every one wanted me to take a plea especially being on parole. No one believed me but she found the truth in the paper work and suggested to me to please wait.So for the first time in my life I was right and knew if proven guilty I would die in Jail due to medical issues.For the first time in my life I let my self trust some one else I wanted my day in court, well I never got that day because Leah called me and said case dismissed. Thank you.”
