“I think solving problems makes the world a better place. As a lawyer, I can protect my clients and find the best solution.”— Leigh Byers
Leigh grew up in a family of judges and litigators. Although the law was in her DNA, she sought a way to marry her concern for the welfare of families with her legal acumen. Today she uses her experience and creativity to thoughtfully guide her clients through the legal process. With an understanding that clients facing family disputes often have their entire lives and fortunes at stake, Leigh navigates family law with the utmost capability and compassion.
Leigh grew up in Bessemer, Alabama and earned her Bachelor of Social Work, graduating cum laude from the University of Alabama in 2002. She moved to Los Angeles and worked in finance before returning to the University of Alabama to pursue her law degree in 2004. She gained her first hands-on legal experience working with the school’s Elder Law Clinic and Hurricane Katrina Relief Program.
