About Me

Leigh Faulk Cummings has practiced family law with Warner, Bates, McGough, McGinnis & Portnoy for over ten years.


 


Since joining the firm in 2002, Leigh has tried divorce and custody cases throughout metropolitan Atlanta, earning a reputation with her clients and her peers as a valued legal counselor to families in sensitive situations or times of trouble.


  


Leigh has been named a “Rising Star” each of the past seven years by Super Lawyers magazine.


 


She is also a frequent lecturer on various family law topics, including divorce, prenuptial agreements, and the financial considerations of divorce. Her expert commentary on these topics and others has appeared in numerous national newspapers and media outlets, including the Associated Press, Reuters, and the Fulton County Daily Report.


 


A native of Atlanta, Leigh is a graduate of The Lovett School and of the University of Virginia, where she earned her bachelor’s degree in English. She went on to earn her law degree from the Georgia State University College of Law, graduating cum laude. While at Georgia State, Leigh earned the school’s Intellectual Property award and served as a member of the Honor Counsel.


 


Leigh is an active member of the Family Law Sections of both the State Bar of Georgia and the Atlanta Bar Association. She is also an active member and past program chair of The Charles Longstreet Weltner Family Law American Inn of Court, a leading legal organization that promotes excellence in professionalism and ethics.


 


Leigh and her husband are the proud parents of one young son. She and her family are members of Holy Innocents Episcopal Church in Atlanta. In her leisure, Leigh enjoys reading, traveling, and spending time with her family.
