About Me

I am a compassionate, tiresome advocate for my clients.  I enjoy working with them to devise creative and realistic solutions to better serve their needs.  One of my greatest strengths is being available for my clients to discuss not only the law and legal procedure, but candid, evolving assessments of the strengths and weaknesses of their cases.  I am very much a hands on attorney who likes frequent contact with clients.

    Prior to moving to Washington state, Leah practiced in Minnesota. My office partners and I had the privilege of sharing office space with Leah for several years during her stay in Red Wing, MN. During that period I not only witnessed Leah's interaction with her clients, but also heard the favorable reviews from clients and opposing counsel as well. Leah has an uncanny knack for comforting her clients and removing a great deal of the stress they are experiencing in stressful family law situations. I have heard her clients comment about the confidence Leah’s counseling gave them to obtain the best, most practical result in their particular situations. Not every divorce lawyer has that ability and it is one of the qualities that makes Leah an excellent family law attorney. There are many options for clients looking for legal counseling and/or representation. In the family law area, it is hard to imagine how a client could make a better choice than Leah.
