Leslie joined Zimmerman Reed-Minneapolis as a paralegal in 2011. She brings more than 20 years of paralegal experience after spending more than a decade helping clients while working at another Twin Cities law firm. Leslie works directly with clients and assists attorneys in our Antitrust, Sports Law, and Employee Rights and Overtime practice areas.
A graduate of Augsburg College, Leslie earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Social Work. During her time at ZR, Leslie worked directly with former NHL players suffering from traumatic brain injuries, Fed Ex drivers challenging FedEx’s independent contractor model, and various other consumers with legal claims. She also worked on the team in the H&R Block case where consumers experienced tax return processing problems. In addition to her paralegal responsibilities, Leslie is also a client-communication specialist, an extra set of hands for unexpected projects, and all-around legal rock star.
When her day at ZR is over, Leslie enjoys spending time with her husband and kids attending school activities and sporting events and, for those in-between quiet moments, she is an avid book reader and enjoys catching up on her favorite TV shows.
