Leslie Pescia is an Auburn University graduate, graduating cum laude in 2009 with dual degrees in Political Science and Criminology. While at Auburn, Leslie was selected to work in the Open-Source Intelligence Laboratory where she was able to develop invaluable skills while working on real-world national intelligence issues for federal agencies.

Leslie attended Thomas Goode Jones School of Law at Faulkner University and graduated magna cum laude in 2013. During law school, Leslie was a Knabe Scholar and named 2013 Advocate of the Year. She served as a Student Bar Association Senator for two years, a member of the Board of Advocates Executive Council, a student ambassador for the law school, and clerked for the Alabama Supreme Court. She also won multiple trial and appellate advocacy awards as well as legal writing awards throughout her time in law school.

Prior to joining Thomas Law Offices, Leslie worked for a national plaintiffs’ firm in Alabama, where she helped secure one of the largest single case settlements in the history of their consumer fraud section. She handled cases related to the BP oil spill and focused on complex litigation, including consumer class actions, cybersecurity matters, antitrust matters, and whistleblower cases, nationwide. Leslie has helped recover hundreds of millions of dollars for clients nationwide, and she is excited to bring her background and experience to Thomas Law Offices to serve injured victims and their families.

Leslie moved to Louisville with her two dogs, Tucker and Scout, and enjoys spending her free time attending all types of sporting events, reading, and travelling!
