In the criminal realm, Leah has handled thousands of felony cases, including many very serious and high-profile cases. In her years as a Deputy District Attorney, Leah tried many cases to a jury ranging from felonies, including, First Degree Murder, Kidnapping, Sexual Assault, Drug Distribution, to misdemeanors and traffics offenses, including, Third Degree Assault, Theft, and Driving Under the Influence, just to name a few. She was a Deputy District Attorney assigned to the Larimer County Drug Task Force where she learned the intricacies of drug crime cases and case building.  As a criminal defense attorney, she uses her experiences to help her clients, including getting cases dismissed.


Leah has also taught at the national level as a faculty member of the prestigious National Advocacy Center or the NAC.
