I have dedicated my career to making sure families are equipped with the knowledge and tools they need to adequately protect themselves and their loved ones. I am a former high school teacher with over 20 years of experience working with families in a variety of high conflict situations. I believe my role as your attorney is to educate you and to make the law easier for you to understand. As a divorcee, I have experienced the life-altering trauma of marital separation and as a mother, I know firsthand how important it is to ensure your children are shielded through such a difficult time. I also know how crucial it is to be empowered with strong support by your side as you navigate the legal system. I am a proud member of The Olsinski Law Firm's family law team and a strong believer in our firm’s dedication to conflict resolution and client-centered services.

Divorce and Custody
Leigh Anne was professional and courteous through out the entire process. With 2020 being a bit of an unknown, she kept me up to date with all latest happenings/milestones. Thanks to her for making things as painless as possible.

I Couldn’t Have Found Better!!
I was referred to Leigh Anne by way of another attorney in my office building. Leigh Anne was very attentive, knowledgeable, professional and informative with each meeting. She was capable of answering every question and never left anything undone. I believe her professional fees are fair and coincides with the excellent work she provides. I didn’t have to worry about anything. I am so fortunate to have connected with her during an extremely sensitive season of my life. Thank you Leigh Anne!!

Couldn’t ask for a better lawyer!
Leigh Anne has stuck with me through a divorce and custody case for over two years. She has always done her best to provide me not only the best legal advice she can, but also the most economical route to take.

Excellent attourney
I highly recommend Leigh for your case!! She won a very complicated custody case for me. I would still rate her the same if I lost due to her amazing dedication and great communication skills. She misses nothing and is very attentive in trial. She thinks fast and creates fierce results.

“Nice” but it’s a legal game
Custody cases are complicated . Attorneys are your personal recruiter. When I initially retained Ms. Williams , I had high expectations. She seemed knowledgeable, she seemed understanding, so I took that risk. Using any attorney is a solid risk . In my personal experience, my expectations were not met . Ms. Williams had many opportunities to be 100% transparent, and she wasn’t . She had opportunities to take certain steps to preserve our case , but she didn’t . At the end of the day , I walked away with the feeling that I lost heavily . For myself , my child , and my family .
