Steve Leigh is one of Martin Leigh’s founders. Over the years he has earned the respect of countless peers and judges and has built an excellent reputation both in the courtroom and in banking and commercial law. Steve has been recognized as a Missouri and Kansas Super Lawyer six straight years and earned Best of the Bar four years running. His reputation and business acumen precede him into industries beyond law, including banking and real estate. He often serves as a trusted adviser to business and bank executives and as a speaker for several organizations, including the Missouri Bankers Association and Missouri Independent Bankers Association.

Steve supervises title claims and commercial litigation and assists in many of the firm’s most important cases, leveraging his experience to ensure the highest quality of work. He mentors many of the firm’s younger attorneys and pursues improvement both personally and for Martin Leigh PC as a whole. Sometimes that means expanding into new practice areas; other times it’s taking a more proactive approach to solving client problems.

Martin Leigh’s culture and founding principles are a reflection of Steve’s own values and personality. Like Steve, each partner and attorney exhibits a strong work ethic, responsiveness to clients and a team-minded attitude. For years, clients have respected and trusted Steve for his knowledge of the law, his advice and his integrity.
