Get To Know Leigha

I am very proud, and consider myself lucky, to have grown up in small-town Nebraska. I had great parents; they instilled the hard-working, Nebraska strong attitude in me from the start. I followed in my grandpa and dad’s footsteps and went to college at the University of Nebraska in Lincoln. Go Huskers! I couldn’t stay away from Omaha for long and moved back to live and work near the community that raised me. A stroke of fate brought my Pittsburgh born-and-raised husband and I together, and we have four children. This stage of my life revolves around packing lunches, carting my kids to their tennis lessons, cheering them on at wrestling meets, and attending dance recitals. As a family, we like to have bonfires in our backyard and spend time with their grandparents at the lake and the pool in the summer. My daughter’s current obsession is playing cards and I think she has beat me only a handful of times (but who’s counting). When my husband and I can get a night out, we look forward to trying new restaurants. My current focus is providing excellent legal representation to my clients, becoming the best litigator I can be, and setting a great example for my kids – just like so many hard-working parents I know. I have a lot of late nights in the office and even more early mornings getting the kids up for school, but I love the challenge, the chaos, and the fun of it all.
