About me

Growing up in a small town in Kansas, strong values and ties to the community were instilled in Lori Leu from the start. After practicing as a civil litigation attorney for more than 20 years, Lori longed to focus on a practice area that would more directly benefit members of the community in which she lives.


Lori graduated from Kansas State University with an honors degree in Interdisciplinary Social Sciences, summa cum laude, in 1984. She continued on to receive her law degree from Harvard University in 1987, and is licensed to practice in Texas, Kansas, and Missouri. Lori lives with her husband and two children in Plano, Texas.
