Leena is unafraid and has always been that way. As a child, she was taught to be honest and compassionate. She has earned her legal reputation through her honesty and efforts which go above and beyond the normal standards of being a family lawyer.

Leena grew up with the vision of helping people and to this day, nothing makes her happier than leading her clients through the storm and into the next chapters of their lives. To her, family law is not always about winning or losing, it is about her clients knowing they have a trustworthy and capable lawyer on their sides who will do anything to ensure they are fully protected and represented in Court or in settlement negotiations.

Her unique vision for how a Family Law Firm should be run motivated her to start a Family Law Firm of her own. So far, it has been an ultra-successful experience with gratitude and honesty forming its pillars.
