As Paragon Legal’s Client Development Associate, Leigh’s goal is to foster and expand client relationships, match attorneys with client projects, and be a trusted expert on the legal job market. She enjoys serving as a strategic partner to her clients by providing thoughtful and innovative solutions to their challenges and opportunities.

Prior to joining Paragon, Leigh spent time as a Client Development Strategist at Husch Blackwell LLP in their Austin office. In this role, she guided experienced and junior attorneys through their strategic marketing and business development initiatives. She enjoyed helping attorneys grow their relationships with their clients. It was here that she found her love for working with people and creating genuine partnerships. Leigh’s experience at Husch Blackwell and other big law firms enables her to bring unique and valuable perspectives to her Paragon clients and teammates.

Leigh earned her B.A. in Political Science from New College of Florida where she obtained strong writing and analytical skills that make her a great asset to the Paragon Legal team.

When she’s not working, Leigh enjoys cooking, reading, getting outside with her fiancé and dog, and volunteering at a local Austin farm on the weekends.
