Leah C. Schwartz

Senior Associate, Jackson Office

Senior associate attorney Leah C. Schwartz works with a broad range of corporate, municipal and individual clients to resolve civil disputes inside and outside the courtroom. She has broad experience before federal and state courts (at both the trial and appellate levels) and administrative agencies. Her clients include for- and non-profit businesses, landowners, homeowners associations, employers, and professionals accused of malpractice. While Leah’s work extends across Wyoming and beyond, her cases are largely centered in Northwest Wyoming and her hometown of Jackson, where she opened an office for Davis & Cannon in 2018.

Leah is actively involved in the state and local bar and currently serves on the Civil Pattern Jury Instructions Committee and is a board member of the State Bar’s Federal Practice Section. She also serves as board member for the Equal Justice Wyoming Foundation and is an honorary member of the Wyoming Access to Justice Commission. Prior to entering private practice, Leah served as law clerk to Judge Nancy D. Freudenthal of the U.S. District Court for the District of Wyoming and to Judge Gregory A. Phillips of the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 10th Circuit.

Leah graduated at the top of her class and earned her law degree Order of the Coif from the University of Wyoming College of Law. In her second year, she was named an inaugural Clarence A. Brimmer Scholar. Later she served as Student Director of John M. Burman’s Legal Services Clinic and received the Outstanding Clinical Student award. She also published a case note with the Wyoming Law Review. Before law school, Leah worked in marketing and led backpacking trips for the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS). Outside the law, her interests include theatre, cross country skiing, reading and travel. Leah and her husband Brad have one son, who they are proud to say is a fifth-generation Wyomingite.
