Q & A
What kind of legal challenges get you most excited?
I thrive on really complicated cases, and the process of seeing them through to clear concepts and winning arguments. When I work hard to piece together a solid argument, and then that "eureka" moment happens where it all fits into place, it’s a very exciting feeling.
How would you describe your team?
Part of what clients love about working with our Land Development & Government Relations Group is that we work together collaboratively. The standards are very high, and I appreciate our culture of never short-changing a matter and not stopping until the case is where it needs to be.

As a University of Miami law student, Leah argued before the Florida Supreme Court and was named "best advocate” at the Florida Bar’s Robert Orseck Memorial Moot Court Competition.

Leah also won the "best advocate" award at the 2015 Duberstein National Moot Court Competition in New York, the largest moot court competition in the country.
