Nathaniel Leeds handles a broad range of civil cases on behalf of consumers and small businesses for Brent, Fiol & Pratt, LLP, including personal injury, medical malpractice, and business litigation. He started out as a Deputy District Attorney in Merced County where he tried numerous jury trials including third-strike felonies, juvenile sexual assaults, and manslaughter. He brings this extensive trial experience to his civil practice. He is a University of Chicago graduate. He received his law degree from UC Hastings in San Francisco. His sincere hope is that this article will be obsolete as attitudes towards the bicycle-riding public changes, and he applauds the efforts of those in the bike-advocacy groups who are making it safer to ride in more places for more people.
