Adam Rose is a partner who has been with the firm since graduating with honors from the University of Miami School of Law. The entirety of his practice is devoted to representing injured persons, victims, and their families throughout Florida, and has represented clients from over 30 states and 11 countries. In the first six years of his career, Adam has successfully obtained over $165 million in compensation for his clients, including a record-setting $95 million verdict for a family whose daughter was killed and son left incapacitated by a drunk driver in Miami-Dade County.

While Adam actively litigates cases across the state, he maintains a prominent practice in Key West and Monroe County, where he currently serves as Vice-President of the Monroe County Bar Association. Keeping with the Firm’s tradition of vigorously advocating for victims of maritime and watersports accidents, Adam has handled numerous boating, jet ski, cruise excursion, and parasailing cases, and recently prosecuted an action against Sunset Watersports in Key West for killing a young couple after deploying their parasail in dangerously high winds. He has also published numerous articles on litigating maritime cases.

A staunch believer in the societal importance of personal injury law, Adam is determined to achieve the best results possible for each of his clients, and to hold companies accountable for their actions. As an advocate for consumer child safety, Adam has also represented families in various product liability lawsuits, including defective furniture leading to tip-overs, defective bicycles, and failed child pool fences.

Client Reviews
I have known Ira for several decades and without a doubt he represents the best of the profession- a never ending commitment to his clients and a perpetual desire for learning and sharing his expertise with his colleagues. Richard
I found, and still find, that Ira’s firm will evaluate the case fairly and provide the client with a reasonably expectation of the process involved and will avoid giving false hope where there is none. Also Ira’s firm consistently keeps in constant touch with the client as well as referring attorneys so each knows the progress of a case. Finally I can tell you that if I personally were injured, Ira Leesfield is the first person I would call. Michael Browning
I'm impressed and very satisfied with the handling of my injury case at this law firm. I was helped and walked through every step of the way. I'm happy to report a fantastic settlement achieved by this excellent law firm. Thank you Rosa
The people at Leesfield Scolaro are extremely professional and compassionate! I would refer your Law Firm to anyone that was in need of an attorney! Thank you my friends. Karen
Our family highly recommends the team at Leesfield and Scolaro. Every step of the way, Barbie Leon was there to make sure we were updated on the progress of the case as well as answer any questions we had. Barbie was in constant communication with our family. She is thoughtful and caring and worked hard to make sure we understood everything that was happening around us. Linda
