Kayla Leonard

Car Accident Attorney

West Seneca, NY native Kayla Leonard completed her undergraduate degree at D’Youville College with a B.A. in Sociology and a minor in English. Her Juris Doctor was earned from University at Buffalo Law School where she was involved in a variety of organizations such as the law school’s Mediation Clinic as a Student Attorney, and an internship with the NYS Unified Court System, 8th Judicial District under the Honorable Thomas Franczyk (retired).

Admitted to practice law in New York State, Kayla originally decided to become a lawyer because she enjoys helping people, and she is most passionate about advocating for clients and is inspired by seeing how much help attorneys can provide for clients through a difficult time.  She is a member of the Erie County Bar Association and the New York State Bar Association.

When asked how she decided to join the William Mattar team, she replied, “William Mattar has a great client centered approach to their practice of personal injury law.  They truly care about each of their clients’ health & recovery, something you do not always find in a law firm.  Additionally, I really enjoy the team atmosphere the firm focuses on.  We work together to get our clients the best results.”

In her personal time she volunteers with Buddy’s Second Chance Rescue and enjoys spending time with her family and rooting for Buffalo sports teams.
