Leah not only advocates for her client’s best interests, she appreciates the collateral consequences that they and their families may face as a result of their legal issues.

Always working with her clients in an attempt to first reach an amicable resolution, Leah has successfully negotiated comprehensive settlements involving both diverse custody and financial issues.
Leah prides herself in guiding clients through the challenges of divorce with a sensitive yet logical tone. She often reminds her clients that this extremely difficult time in their lives will soon facilitate a new beginning.
