The Rockafellow Law Firm began in Tucson when Leighton Rockafellow Sr. opened his own law firm after practicing general litigation with a small Tucson firm. Over the years Leighton Sr has become recognized as one of the best personal injury practitioners in Tucson and the State of Arizona.

In 2011, Leighton Jr joined the firm following his graduation from Law School and admittance to the Arizona Bar. Together, Sr and Jr are The Rockafellow Law Firm. Our dedicated staff complements the service we offer our clients.

Leighton Sr and Leighton Jr both devote their practices to serious personal injury caused by any means, and Medical Negligence (Malpractice).
