Leah Jackson is an extremely talented, tenacious, and compassionate criminal defense attorney. She graduated from Texas State University in 2010 with a Bachelor of Arts in Psychology prior to attending Oklahoma City School of Law, where she received her Juris Doctorate in 2019.
While in law school, Leah completed a judicial internship and successfully worked on numerous Post-Conviction Relief petitions, which helped several petitioners obtain fair resolutions to their cases. Leah was also a first-time Constance Baker Motley Regional Mock Trial champion and was named Best Advocate for the competition.
After graduating from law school, she went to work for the City of Dallas as a City Attorney in 2020. While there, she gained valuable experience and found great success prosecuting misdemeanor cases and skillfully handling countless hearings and several bench trials. Leah’s success at the City of Dallas proved two things for her. First, it solidified her passion for being a criminal trial lawyer. Second, it made her realize that her true passion in the law was defending those who have been falsely accused. After flourishing for two years at the City of Dallas, Leah joined the Barbieri Law Firm.
Leah is a member of the State Bar of Texas and is active in the Dallas Bar Association, as well as the Dallas Young Lawyers Association and the J.L. Turner Legal Association. Also, in 2019 she was honored with entrance into the National Order of Barristers.
When she’s not helping clients, Leah loves singing, rooting for the New Orleans Saints, the Texas Rangers, and the Golden State Warriors (quite a lineup)! And most of all, she loves cuddling up with her pet cat of 17 years, Thunder.
