What her clients are saying:

“Leila Higgins-Fleishman is a life saver! I was a victim of false accusations that could have cost me my livelihood. I had every intention on proving my innocence, but all I was missing was the right lawyer. Within minutes of calling Ms. Higgins-Fleishman at TGB Law I knew I had made the right choice!

I presented all my evidence for fighting my case to Ms. Higgins-Fleishman and she handled the rest! As a military service member I had to go away on Annual Training while my case was pending. While I was away Ms. Higgins-Fleishman took care of everything! Talk about stress relief!  As a result of her hard work all charges were dropped! Great communication and a piece of mind is what you get when dealing with such a wonderful lawyer and a person who actually cares. Thank you so much to Leila Higgins and the team at TGB Law!”

“If you are looking for an animal law attorney, I highly recommend Leila B. Higgins-Fleishman of Tucker Griffin Barnes.  Leila assisted me in getting my dog back after she has been taken from my home by another person.  Her knowledge and tenacity were instrumental in getting my dog back to me in a timely manner.  She provided me with clear guidance and instruction which helped me remain calm and confident throughout the process.”

“You have been an absolute gift!”
