A Michigan native, Mr. Lesko is a graduate of the University of Michigan and the University of Michigan Law School.  During college, he was accepted into the Honors Program, awarded Class Honors, and achieved a perfect score on his Law School Admissions Test -- a feat unmatched by any president, supreme court justice, or member of congress.

With his choice of top legal programs, Mr. Lesko accepted a scholarship to Michigan Law, ranked among the best schools in the country.  While there, he earned one of the top grades in his Constitutional Law Course, receiving the highest score on a major exam section.  He was also a Michigan Law Sports Champion, and had his writing used as a model for other students.

After law school, Mr. Lesko worked in Washington, D.C. for several major international firms.  He worked in a variety of areas, including white-collar criminal defense, employment law, and excess-carrier insurance defense. 

Mr. Lesko now operates his own Detroit-area practice with the goal of providing top-quality legal services on a personal, affordable level.  He recently obtained a Million-dollar judgment in a civil assault case, and has achieved successful resolutions in cases involving felony drug offenses, medical malpractice, employment disputes, property disputes against local municipalities, insurance claim appeals, alcohol-related driving offenses, quiet title actions, and telemarketing harassment claims.

He is currently assisting with one of the largest defamation cases in American history against CBS and their forensic experts, arising from a recent Jon Benet Ramsey television special. The combined cases involve $750 Million in total claimed damages.
