Leesa M. Poag, J.D.Associate Attorney
Attorney Leesa Poag, the newest addition to Woodruff Family Law Group, has been practicing law since 2013. When asked why she chose family law as a concentration, Leesa says: "I wanted to practice in an area that would afford me the opportunity to really interact with clients and get to know them on a personal level. When someone is in need of a family law attorney, it is typically a very difficult period in their life. I wanted to be able to help people during these times."
Family Law is one of the most complex practice areas an attorney can choose. "I think the hardest things for clients to understand is that each case is different. Though all of our clients have family law issues, every case presents new and different challenges, and clients have different objectives and goals. There really is no "typical" case. Each case really is a process, and though clients often want issues resolved immediately, it takes some time to work through all the issues in the case to achieve the best outcome. Personally, I think the most important role we play as lawyers is as an advocate. When someone is in need of legal services, it is usually in very stressful and difficult situations. I think it is imperative that, in these times, clients know that we are doing everything possible to advocate for them to get the best possible outcome for their case."
Dogs or Cats? "I have two dogs, Atticus and Finn."
Favorite Saying? "Go into the world and do well. But more importantly go into the world and do good."
