Family owned and operated Lesch & Lesch P.C. is in the unique position of being able to offer its clients the combination of maturity, experience and specialized legal knowledge obtained from operating as an established Law Firm with the insightful, fresh-thinking approaches advanced by today’s youthful attorneys. No law firm located in Bronx County is as established or as advanced.
The Lesch family has been successful in establishing meaningful relationships with their clients with focused attention on their personal and business needs, as well as in developing individual areas of expertise to assist all residents of New York City. The attorneys and their staff speak fluent Spanish as yet another effort to personalize their service to the community.
Lesch & Lesch P.C. was founded in 1966 when Solomon I. Lesch, a Bronx native whose background as Editor-in Chief of Law Review at New York University Law School and work experience at a prominent Wall Street Firm, decided to return to his roots and build his dream law firm, one focused on servicing the legal needs of the Bronx County community.
Skilled with advance trial techniques and a commercial real estate background, Solomon Lesch earned a reputation as a results-driven attorney. He established himself as a leading lawyer in Bronx County, obtaining plaintiff verdicts on behalf of his clients that now rank as some of the highest in not only in Bronx County but all of New York State.
In 1977, Marjorie Lesch joined the firm upon her graduation from St. John’s Law School. Before becoming an attorney, Marjorie had been a school teacher in New York City. Once in active practice, she quickly became an expert in Immigration Law, as well as Guardianship issues.
Always involved in various Bar Association activities, Marjorie has paid close attention to the residents of our community. As a Past President of several organizations including the Bronx County Bar Association and the New York State Women’s Bar Association Mrs. Lesch guided her constituency to successful terms.
In 1992, David Lesch joined both parents as members of the firm. Prior to joining Lesch and Lesch P.C., David worked with the Honorable Lorraine Backal, a Supreme Court Judge elected to Bronx County. As a Chief Court Attorney to Judge Backal, David honed his skills in the area of Civil Litigation. He has recently expanded the practice to include areas of Law devoted to the Elderly and Incapacitated.
In 1999, Gary Lesch joined his family at Lesch & Lesch. A former New York Sate Assistant Attorney General, Gary Lesch specialized in Federal Litigation, including Title V11 Sexual Harassment and Discrimination Claims, Section 1983 Civil Rights Violations, and also represented the New York State Department of Taxation and Finance.
In addition, Gary had the responsibility of representing the State’s hospitals and physicians in all Medical Malpractice actions. So it was only logical that upon joining Lesch & Lesch, Gary assumed the role as the specialist in Medical Malpractice actions and Federal Violations, as well as establishing a greater role in the Commercial practice of the firm.
