About Leah

Learn Leah’s areas of practice.

Leah Morrison thinks of tax law as a board game with very elaborate rules. Once you learn the rules, she says, you can learn how to navigate the game – and win.

“Analysis and understanding of rules and laws is something that I’ve always enjoyed,” Leah says. “I’ve long had a knack for it. I first considered law enforcement, but as soon as I began to study tax law, I knew I had found my calling.”

Often, Leah’s work involves working with families, especially business owners, planning for the future. Her knowledge of both tax and estate law allows her to present her clients with options for estate plans that take taxes into account when appropriate. Few clients are excited to get started on an estate plan, and many put it off. But once it is done, the client is relieved. “There is a sense of comfort for the clients that they have a plan,” Leah says. “They can be assured that they can continue on living the way they want to and their family will be taken care of.”

Leah was raised in New Jersey, and sought education in distant locations as a way to experience more of the country. She sought out the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law first by location and then discovering that she loved law, and enjoyed living in Kentucky. “My Constitutional law class was probably my favorite educational experiences,” Leah says. “It was one of the first times I enjoyed education, as opposed to being in it just to get where I needed to be. It was great to have really engaging discussions.”

Beyond law school, Leah earned an LL.M. degree from the University of Alabama School of Law. An LL.M. degree gives attorneys advanced and intensive study in tax law.

Outside of work, Leah enjoys cultivating her love of foreign languages. She speaks fluent French, and some Russian and German. She enjoys fast-pitch softball and science-fiction literature. She is married and lives in Bowling Green.
