Matthew D. Leonard

Matt, a principal, specializes in defending workers’ compensation matters in Illinois and Missouri. He also assists with civil litigation.

Prior to joining Early & Miranda, P.C., Matt was a senior associate at Holtkamp, Liese, Schultz, and Hilliker P.C. for over ten years where he defended workers’ compensation claims on behalf of a wide variety of clients. He has represented employers, insurers, and third party administrators at the trial and appellate level and appeared at multiple venues throughout Missouri and southern Illinois. His client base has ranged from large international companies to small local family owned businesses, and he understands the different perspectives and preferences each client may have as a result of his experience. Matt therefore values the opportunity to build close working relationships with his clients in order to ensure the unique goals of each client are met on a timely, efficient and cost-effective basis. Prior to Holtkamp, Liese, Schultz and Hilliker, P.C., Matt worked with Maurice Early and Amanda Miranda as an associate at Simon and Early P.C. where he specialized in the defense of Missouri workers’ compensation claims.

Matt is a member of the Missouri Bar, the Illinois State Bar Association, and the Bar Association of Metropolitan St. Louis.
