Our founding partner, Jennifer Lenze, has been recognized as a Top 40 under 40 Trail Attorney by The National Trial Lawyers. Top 40 under 40 is a professional organization comprised of America’s top young trial attorneys. Membership into The National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 under 40 is by invitation only, and is extended exclusively to those individuals who meet stringent qualifications and specialize in the legal practice of criminal defense or civil plaintiff.
LL began following the death of Jennifer Lenze's former partner, J. Paul Sizemore (1970-2014), a recognized trial lawyer who provided exceptional representation on behalf of injured clients. Paul instilled in her the core values of civility in advocacy, tireless commitment, and compassion for those who have been wronged. These principles have inspired the vision for LL.
