2007 Harry L. Carrico Professionalism Award Recipient

Rodney G. Leffler, Esquire 

Rodney G. Leffler of Fairfax received the 2007 Harry L. Carrico Professionalism Award from the Virginia State Bar’s Criminal Law Section at the 37th annual Criminal Law Seminar.

The award, established in 1992 in honor of Carrico, who retired as chief justice of the Supreme Court of Virginia in 2003, recognizes a singular and unique contribution to the improvement of the criminal justice system in Virginia.

Leffler graduated from Pennsylvania State University in 1973. He put himself through George Mason University School of Law while working as a police officer.

He served as an assistant commonwealth’s attorney in Fairfax, then in 1981 joined Oden, Feldman & Pittleman PC, where he practiced until he formed what is now Leffler & Hyland PC in 1993. A member of the American College of Trial Lawyers, he has tried hundreds of civil and criminal cases—more than 250 to juries.

Leffler also was a substitute judge in the Fairfax Circuit from 1984 until 2002.
