BIO

Leah is an associate in the Fredericton office of Cox & Palmer. Her legal practice is focused primarily on family law. She has experience representing clients in custody disputes, marital property, divorce proceedings and common law separations. She has also worked with families pursuing adoptions.

Leah has a large focus and interest in mediating family law disputes. After beginning her career primarily in the traditional adversary court system, she has shifted her focus to offer mediation services to parties as an alternate way forward. While some disputes require a more traditional court focused approach, many families benefit and are more successful through mediation. Leah has received professional training in mediation through Family Mediation Canada and she strongly believes that there are a variety of ways to navigate the difficulty of a family breakdown.

In addition to her family law practice, Leah is a member of the firm’s litigation team practising both insurance and commercial litigation. She has developed a well-rounded practice to service her clients as they proceed through all aspects of complex litigation.

Leah is originally from Saint John, New Brunswick  Upon graduating from Carleton with a degree in Public Affairs and Policy Management, Leah went on to work for the Federal Government before deciding to pursue a legal career.

In her spare time, Leah loves to stay active, frequently taking advantage of the trails that Fredericton has to offer and spending time with her husband and daughter.

Leah is a compassionate, empathetic and results driven lawyer, who is always looking for the best way to represent her clients, whether that is the courtroom or providing comprehensive mediation services.

Experience

Leah completed a judicial internship at the New Brunswick Court of Appeal in her final year of her law degree.
