I was fortunate enough to be given an opportunity to clerk at a personal injury law firm. This exposed me to the 'real world' of personal injury law. There was something very compelling about seeing attorneys helping injured people, and their families, overcome what may be some of the most trying times in their lives.Attorney Leonelli

When I'm Not Helping Clients...
"I enjoy powerlifting. I’ve always been involved in sports and weightlifting, and I'm currently a member of the International Powerlifting Association and the United States Powerlifting Association. I hold National Records in the United States Powerlifting Association, an Ohio state record in the Revolution Powerlifting Syndicate, and Pennsylvania state records in the International Powerlifting Association.”
Partnering with the Pittsburgh SteelwheelersWhat piece of advice would you give to potential clients?
"It's important to 'live your life, not your case.' What I mean by that is an injury alone is enough to overwhelm a person without being compounded by legal issues. So, as difficult as it may be, you should try to focus your energy on recovering from your injuries and returning to some level of normalcy, rather than being stressed or anxious about the legal issues of your case—let us bear that burden as much as possible."
