In 2006, Leah returned to Florida where she was admitted to the Florida Bar and focuses her practice in personal injury. She is also a Board Certified Civil Trial Attorney by The Florida Bar. Leah has represented both individual and corporate clients and has litigated thousands of cases. She has successfully tried dozens of jury trials in both State and Federal Court including the United States District Court of Puerto Rico, where she obtained a favorable verdict on behalf of her injured client against a major pharmaceutical company.
Prior to joining Balkan Patterson & Charbonnet, Leah represented insurance companies and their insureds for more than a decade. She left insurance defense to use her knowledge, experience, and skills to advocate for victims of catastrophic personal injury and wrongful death involving motor vehicle collisions, and premise liability and defective products. Her insight on how insurance companies analyze, evaluate and defend cases gives her an advantage in order to maximize recoveries on behalf of her clients.
Leah lives in Deerfield Beach with her husband Mark and her two sons, Nicholas and Ryan. She enjoys spending time with her family, boating, and traveling.
