    The founder of Schlesinger Law Offices, P.A. Scott P. Schlesinger focuses his practice exclusively on personal injury and wrongful death litigation. Located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, he provides representation to clients throughout the state, and he has been a member in good standing of The Florida Bar since 1984.
