Leah Burris went to Indiana University and earned her bachelor’s degree while majoring in criminal justice and psychology. Leah then went on to Capital University where she obtained her law degree with concentrations in juvenile law and alternative dispute resolution. While attending Capital, Leah worked as an intern with the National Center for Adoption Law and Policy. Upon admission to the bar, Leah was in private practice where she focused on family law and lower-level criminal cases. Leah then worked for seven years representing the Department of Child Services (DCS) in hundreds of child abuse and neglect cases that resulted in a child in need of services (CHINS) or termination of parental rights (TPR) actions. Leah completed her time with DCS as a Chief Counsel where she oversaw the work of 10 DCS attorneys.
Leah returned to private practice at Eimerman Law where she practices in all areas of family law, including divorce, paternity, custody, adoption, guardianship, and CHINS cases. She recognizes that she is often working with clients under very emotional circumstances. Leah gives each of her clients her sole focus and attention when working on their case and strives to achieve the best possible outcome for each client she represents.
