Pearl River, New York

Prior to joining Johnson & Cohen in September 2012, Leah prosecuted domestic violence
crimes as a Senior Trial Attorney in the Brooklyn District Attorney's Office. She is passionate
about litigating matters involving intimate partner relationships and the transition from criminal
to family law has been both seamless and rewarding.

The trial experience Leah gained as a prosecutor is unmatched. She secured dozens of
Grand Jury indictments and prosecuted over 10 jury and bench trials to verdict. Of note, Leah
was the lead counsel on an attempted murder conviction and co-counsel on a kidnapping and
violent assault conviction among others. In both trials, Leah conducted direct examination of
child witnesses and both Defendants were sentenced to 24 years in upstate prison.

Leah's legal background provides her with a unique perspective for assisting clients through
emotional divorce and custody disputes. She appreciates the stress and collateral
consequences that her client's face as a result of their family's legal struggles. Her knowledge
of the law and respect for her client's individual needs allows Leah to properly advise clients
during this challenging time in their lives.

Leah earned her Juris Doctorate from Brooklyn Law School and her Bachelors of Arts from
Ohio Wesleyan University. She is a member of the New York State Bar Association's Family
Law Section and the Rockland County Women's Bar.
