About Justin Duffy

While working his way through college and excelling in every subject he studied, he worked for a local criminal defense lawyer and began learning about the profession before even going to law school.

Just a note to thank you for the wonderful representation provided to my son. I have worked in the Justice System for 30 years and have had the opportunity to watch many well-known defense attorneys in action. None of them compare with the knowledge, grace and dignity that you provided to my son which ultimately has given him a second chance at life. You are truly the Best of the Best!! Thank you never seems enough, but thank you!
We just wanted to thank you once again, we couldn’t be more happy about the outcome of today. You went above and beyond the duties of a friend and we are very appreciative for it! You are a true example that there are good people in this world, and we thank you for it!
Thank you so much for all your help. …It meant so much to me at such a time in my life! You made things so much easier for me and made me feel a lot better with my situation.
….I do believe that God guided me through all the Attorney letters, emails and phone calls to meet you. I must admit that neither the implied consent decision or this last plea agreement came as a surprise, I thank you for that. From day one, you were open and honest about what could happen to me leaving a window of optimism open. I’ve also felt from day one a feeling of comfort knowing that the office of John Leunig cares about his clients far beyond the income they generate for you. …It’s hard to find honesty and sincerity nowadays from anyone, but I’ve found that with you, I appreciate that. I will be advertising your law office to all my friends or anyone I run across in the future. Yes, I’d like to be the CEO of the John Leunig Law Office Fan Club. lol.
I am writing this letter to express my gratitude again for your outstanding efforts to obtain the exceptional outcome on my case. I have known you for years, from my previous career in the legal field. Even though I had not worked for you directly, I was impressed and aware of your talent as an attorney. I have much admiration for your ability and command of the law, the respect you have from other attorneys and prosecutors, and how you reverentially treat and defend your clients with conviction and vigor! I truly appreciate your way of putting my mind at ease and approach of communicating the steps of action, keeping me informed in the process. Your efforts and excellent outcome on my case only confirm what I already knew, that I made the right choice in you for my attorney! I will gladly, and without hesitation, refer anyone who needs legal representation to your services! Thank you again, John.
Thank you for your time, counsel and reassurance yesterday. I respect and admire all that you do.
Just a note John to thank you again for your work and your great presentation in court. I liked you the first time we met back in July and I think you’re great. I can feel in my heart that you like to help people as you helped me. Thanks again John and Bless you!
Thank you for the crafty work you did for me in regards to the driving infraction that took place on October 30th when I was pulled over and charged with DWI… Thank you once again for your support and earning my trust. You have built my confidence and I will use your services in the future, hopefully, it will only be through referring others to you.
Thank you for all the hard work you put into [my grandson’s] case. It cost a lot of money but saving [my grandson’s] reputation and future is far more important. I would highly recommend your services to anyone in the same situation.
We give thanks to God for having placed such a great person in our path. Thank you for offering us your support up until the last moment. God Bless you now and always John J. Leunig
