Bernardo Pimentel II is a Trial Attorney with over six years of experience in criminal and civil litigation. His current areas of focus include General Federal and State litigation, Automobile Negligence, Products Liability, E-Cigarette Litigation, and Asbestos Litigation. He is admitted to practice law in both State and Federal Courts in Florida.

Before joining Leesfield Partners, Mr. Pimentel was a Partner at Cole, Scott, and Kissane, a civil litigation defense law firm, for over three years. In this role, which he rose to after just a little over a year with the firm, he represented the interest of companies across the state. In joining Leesfield Partners he has switched sides, choosing to fight on behalf of the individual and face the types of clients he used to represent head-on.

Before that, He served as an Assistant Public Defender for the Eleventh Judicial Circuit for Miami-Dade County where he saw criminal proceedings through, from initial arrest to verdict. In this role, as in any future endeavors, he helped guide his clients through legal jargon and advocated on their behalf to provide them representation that surpassed expectations through his meticulous research and creative legal strategy. Prior to his work with the Eleventh Judicial Circuit, Mr. Pimentel was an Associate Attorney for the Law Offices of Pimentel and Castillo where he began as an intern. While there, he focused primarily on Criminal Defense, Family Law, and General Litigation.

Mr. Pimentel earned his Juris Doctor degree from the University of Miami School of law in 2017.

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

Our family highly recommends the team at Leesfield & Partners. 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
