Leigh S. Montgomery

I have spent my entire legal career helping individuals and small businesses maximize the results they can achieve from the civil justice system. Whether fighting the insurance industry or one individual, I will happily represent my clients from pre-lawsuit negotiations through trial and appeal until they get the very best legal resolution to their disputes.

I spent the first five years of my career assisting those individuals and business devastated by natural catastrophes such as Hurricane Ike and Hurricane Harvey. When your home and livelihood are destroyed in an instant, it is often too much for a person or business to fight with their insurance company or mortgage company in addition to dealing with the devastation. I am proud to have assisted hundreds of individuals and small businesses in getting the money and assistance necessary to put their lives back together.

Since 2013, I have represented individuals injured in truck, auto or on the job incidents. A sudden, unexpected injury can have a ripple effect on the life of the injured person, including medical bills, loss of a vehicle, loss of a job, and the resulting devastating effects of being unable to support yourself and your family physically or financially. With my background in fighting insurance companies, I have helped many injured individuals get the maximum benefits and help they deserve.
