I can gurantee she's worth it!
Ms Leah is truly an amazing attorney! After searching and consulting with attorneys, none have made me feel I was listened to and supported me. Leah is very passionate, compassionate, and very sweet! She keeps informed and returns your calls as soon as possible. Talking to her never made me rushed and she took the time to really sit down and talk to me. Although she may be very down to earth, she is a fierce lion in the court room and makes her point across! I HIGHLY recommend her. If in the future I need legal help, she will be the first one I call and go too!

#1 Agressive Criminal Attorney
Thanks to Leah, my son is home with NO criminal record!! I was scared and desperate, not knowing where to turn. Leah came highly recommended. Leah has a sweet appearance but she is a pit bull in the court room. Leah does not sugar coat anything, she is honest and forthcoming and kept everything confidential. Leah kept me informed every step of the way. Leah worked hard to have all charges dropped and today my son does not have a record!! The possibilities of my son's future are endless. If you are looking for an aggressive Criminal Attorney, Leah Gillis is the one! I am eternally grateful to her.

Great lawyer
Leah was nothing short of outstanding! She is very compassionate, trustworthy and understanding. Despite her gentle appearance she is definitely a tough lawyer. She’s great with communication which helped me and my family stay at ease in such a hard time. She helped my brother, got the whole case dismissed. I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a great criminal lawyer. She never seems too overworked or too busy to answer any questions. Her staff was very helpful too. thank you Leah.

Leah did a great job getting my son off on false charges and he didn't even have to go to court.

Great Communication
The thing I liked most about Ms. Gillis was her communication with me regarding my case. Additionally, she was very knowledgeable regarding my community and how the system works within my community. She spoke to me as a person, not a criminal, and was able to calm me down by presenting things in layman's terms. She was honest with me and presented all my options and possible scenarios of how my case might play out. I am very happy with her counsel.
