“Leah defines class. Don’t let her perfectly put together exterior fool you. She is extremely sensitive and caring. Her very kind and sweet nature is evidenced by her life. She has spent her life dedicated to helping people. She treats a traffic ticket like a capital murder. This trait is well known as she has the respect from all sides both handling traffic tickets as a defense lawyer and the district attorney in JP courts (a job for which she was chosen due to her extraordinary ability to handle all cases no matter how minor with an incredible attitude and acumen). This is also very helpful as most DWI cases start as traffic tickets.
Leah has spent 8 years as a prosecutor for the Dallas District Attorney’s office and ten years as a defense lawyer. In addition to her law degree, she boasts a scientific background. She earned a Master’s degree in Biological Psychology (lot of operations on rat brains) from the University of Houston at Clear Lake with a lot of hours spent in the lab at Louisiana State University.
Leah loves helping others. She is very active performing much community service as an auxiliary member of the Fraternal Order of the Eagle for the past 5 years. In her spare time besides volunteering for charitable events, she enjoys archery, golf, and snow skiing as well as music (she plays piano and saxophone).
I am so honored to be able to work alongside Leah. In all the many years that I have known, her genuine sweetness has always been impressive to me.”
