In central Florida, a first felony offense may have you facing five years in prison and up to $5000 in fines. A second felony offense may put you away for 15 years and has a price tag of up to $10,000. The impact of any arrest on your record may make it more difficult for you to get a job, get a loan or go to school. You need a lawyer who will stand up for your rights.
I am a Criminal Law Attorney, and I help people who have been charged with felonies. I have handled many cases successfully, including cases involving:
- Drug possession
- Domestic violence
- Felony assault
- Vehicular homicide
The central Florida justice system is very harsh on crime. I prepare all cases for trial, whether or not they end up in court, because it gives me a better negotiating position and because it lets the prosecution know I am serious about your defense.
Armed Robbery Attorney
Whether you held up a convenience store or you are a doctor who has been accused of prescribing oxycodone for cash, I will examine all of the evidence the police have against you, looking for possible misconduct or mistakes on the arresting officer’s part. I will interview any witnesses to the crime, and I will enlist the help of a private detective if required.
I will listen to your account of events and ask questions regarding the evidence. I will be completely honest with you about your situation and what I can do for you. I have a track record of success in criminal defense cases.
A Local Criminal Law Trial Attorney With In-Depth Knowledge Of The System
I returned to the place I grew up to practice law because I want to help the people who matter to me most.
I worked for the Lake County Public Defender’s Office where I helped create their early intervention and resolution program. Because of this, I have extensive trial experience. I care about what happens to all of my clients. I work hard to defend your rights and protect your freedom.

The Villages Golf Cart And Scooter Injuries Attorney
I will negotiate with your insurance adjuster. You can turn all of your medical bills, doctors’ reports and any other pertinent paper work to me. I will review your automobile insurance policy so you know what you have immediate access to and what you may expect to happen in your case. If you do not have adequate health insurance, I can recommend you to a doctor who will accept the personal injury protection (PIP) from your auto insurance or will defer billing until your case is resolved. I care about what happens to you after your accident and will fight to get a result that you are happy with, not just the first number that the insurance company offers.
When you go to your doctor, you expect to be taken care of and you expect that he or she will get it right the first time. Unfortunately, this doesn’t always happen. Doctors make mistakes. When it affects your health and your life, it is unacceptable and needs to be remedied.
My name is Curtis P. Leonard, and I hold doctors who are negligent in their duties accountable, on behalf of the people whose lives have been permanently changed because of their mistakes. My first action as your attorney is to direct you to the best doctor to help reverse the damage that has been done. Next, I seek compensation to cover the present and future costs of the harm done to you.
I have handled medical malpractice cases involving:
- Incorrectly done surgeries
- Severed organs
- Incorrectly severed tissue
- Incorrectly severed muscles
- Sponges or tools left in the patient
- Misdiagnosis of disease
- Incorrect prescriptions
- Nursing medication errors
An Accomplished Local Trial Lawyer On Your Side
I returned to practice law in the area I grew up in when I graduated from law school because I want to help the people I care about the most. You and I will discuss the circumstances of your case. I will be completely honest with you about your situation and what I can do for you. I understand how insurance companies really work, and I will let you know what you are up against. We will work together to establish your goals, and I will fight for you until you are happy with the result.
The Villages Physician Negligence Attorney
Because Florida law dictates that prior medical malfeasance is part of the public record, I check the past history of every treating doctor involved in your case to see if any of them have had prior problems. I review your medical reports and consult with experts to determine where the standard of care was deviated from in your situation. I prepare your case to go to trial so the insurance company knows we are serious about seeking justice for you.
