August 24, 2012 No Comments »

PHOENIX, Aug. 23, 2012 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — Palumbo Wolfe & Palumbo attorney Brian T. Leonard is among a small percentage of attorneys included on the 2012 Southwest Rising Stars ℠list in Super Lawyers® magazine, a recognition that serves as an acclaim of his peer recognition and high level of achievement in his profession.  The peer-reviewed listing is reserved for just 2.5 percent of lawyers in each state who are 40 years old or younger and who have practiced law for 10 years or less.


Leonard joined the Phoenix-based accident and personal injury law firm in 2007, following six years of working in the practice area with his father. Being included on the Rising Stars℠ list means Leonard's professional background received extensive review from researchers and other attorneys.

The selection process starts with nominations by other attorneys, who are asked to nominate the “best” attorneys they have observed professionally who are age 40 or younger, according to the Super Lawyers® website. The nominators are required to have observed the young attorneys professionally. This requirement is applicable in a variety of roles, such as opposing counsel, co-counsel or just through firsthand courtroom observation.

After nominations are submitted, a point-based rating system is then used to evaluate and rate the nominees in various areas related to their professional credentials and backgrounds. This step is performed by an attorney-led research team. The nominees' professional backgrounds are then vetted even further as the research team checks information such as licensure status and history of disciplinary action. Those with the most points who meet the qualifications are selected for inclusion on the published list, which represents only a small percentage of total lawyers in each state.

By being selected for the Rising Stars℠list, Leonard has proven that he stands out from others in his field. He is one of several trial attorneys at Palumbo Wolfe & Palumbo who are fighting on behalf of their clients to help them receive the compensation they deserve for injuries and wrongful deaths caused by the negligence of others.

At the firm, Leonard focuses on cases that involve plaintiff's personal injury, wrongful death, automobile accidents, motor vehicle accident injuries, birth trauma and medical negligence. The attorney was admitted to the State Bar of Arizona and the United States District Court for the District of Arizona in 2002. He received his law degree in 2001 from the Golden Gate University School of Law in 2001, after earning a bachelor's degree from Santa Clara University in 1993.

He is a member of various professional organizations, which include the Maricopa County Bar Association, the American Bar Association, the State Bar of Arizona, the American Association for Justice and the Arizona Trial Lawyers Association.
