About Me

Bob Leonard, Jr. has been licensed to practice law since 1975.  He is Board Certified in Family Law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization.  In addition to his family law practice, which includes Divorce, High Asset Divorce, Complex Chld Custody, and Adoption, Bob and his team of attorneys and legal professionals are well-equipped to handle the simplest to the most complex wills and estate planning documents.  


 


A native Texan, Bob served in the Texas Legislature representing the western portion of Fort Worth for nearly a decade.  During his tenure in the House, he was Chairman of the Commitee on Public Safety.  He served in several leadership positions in the State Capitol.


 


One thing Bob is particularly proud of is his work on the Abandoned Baby Bill, legislation which allows a parent to leave a baby in a protected location (for example, a fire station) with no questions asked.  This Law, originally crafted in Texas, is called the Baby Moses Law.  Similar legislation has been duplicated and enacted throughout the United States.


 


Bob and his entire legal team devote considerable time to community endeavors, serving on various boards and commissions.  Bob is current President of the Board of Guardianship Services, Inc., a non-profit organization that provides guardianship services to those who cannot afford them and do not have friends or family available to help.


 


Since 2004, Bob Leonard, Jr. has been listed among the Top Attorneys chosen by Fort Worth Texas Magazine.  In 2013, Bob was named a Power Attorney by the Fort Worth Business Press.
