Leslie A. Goller

Biography

Leslie has dedicated her career to champi­oning consumers – whether they were harmed by big corpo­ra­tions, dangerous products, medical mistakes or an unsafe environment — no issue is too big for her to tackle. She success­fully prevented an incin­erator from being built at University Hospital (now UF-Jacksonville), which would have polluted the air with toxic chemicals and obtained signif­icant restric­tions of other Jacksonville hospital incin­er­ators resulting in cleaner air.

An attorney at Terrell Hogan for 19 years, Leslie is a graduate of Duke University and received her J.D. from Washington & Lee University. While in law school, she did an internship at the Federal Trade Commission’s Office of General Counsel, which sparked her passion for helping consumers. Hard work, attention to detail, and making a difference drive Leslie’s approach to the law and have led to her success.

She has been recog­nized with numerous awards including the 2013 Jacksonville Women Lawyers Woman Lawyer of the Year Award, the Environ­mental Woman of Action for the State of Florida award, the Mimi & Lee Adams Environ­mental Award — Individual category and the 2002 Juvenile Diabetes Foundation’s Volunteer of the Year Award. Leslie also educates local high school students and businesses about the dangers of distracted driving.

In her free time, she enjoys scuba diving, exploring Florida’s wonders, volun­teering and spoiling her Wirehaired Fox Terrier, Maggie Mae.
