About Riley Leonard

I was born and raised in Fairbanks, AK then studied at the University of Alaska Southeast in Juneau, AK for my undergraduate work. I also studied abroad in Honduras, Thailand and Spain. After graduating, I worked in the Alaska State Legislature for three years before attending law school at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. I’m an avid traveler and love bringing home new recipes to cook. I’m also a sports fanatic and love playing ultimate frisbee, soccer, and downhill skiing.

I went to law school to help people who don’t have the ability to help themselves. The legal system is complicated and can quickly become overwhelming. I became a lawyer to help clients navigate this system and work through some of the most difficult challenges in their lives.

When you’re not working… I’m playing sports, traveling, or eating!
