Leena’s Secret for Success

Leena has had the rare honour of appearing before the BC Court of Appeal in her first year of Call which is extremely rare. So is her success record against both junior and senior counsel. Her secret?

  • Her powerful mind;
  • Ability to connect with people;
  • Pouring passion and compassion in to her work;
  • Being completely unafraid;
  • Treating her clients like family. 

As a top rated Vancouver family lawyer, she prefers settlements over litigation. But if litigation is needed she will stop at nothing short of winning your full rights. She lives her life on the full and fast edge and is unafraid of taking challenging and multi-million dollar cases. She thrives on people not believing in her, and the more people question her abilities, the better she does.

Leena loves her clients and treats them like family. Being in Leena’s hands means trusting someone who does not ever take advantage of you or your case.  She wants to make sure you know you have an outstanding, honest and compassionate lawyer on your side who will give you her all.

Leena currently has a waiting list for new clients but if your case is unique, feel free to reach out to her at, and she may make an exception.

 Leena’s Personal Life

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.
