Gibson Law Banner

Leah Duncan grew up watching her mother run multifamily/real estate companies. Leah even worked at the property level, in multifamily, until she decided what she wanted to do after school. After a small taste of contracts and following her mother around watching her run a business, Leah decided that law school was somewhere in her future. This is where Leah’s passion was set on fire for business matters and contracts.

She played division I volleyball for three years during her undergrad, with her first year at Rice University and then Morehead State University for two years after that. She is very competitive, and if you ever see her outside of the office, don’t challenge her in a volleyball match unless you are ready for a competitive game. She earned her bachelor’s degree from University of Texas at Arlington. Afterwards, she attended SMU to achieve a paralegal certificate. Leah was a paralegal for five years prior to earning her Juris Doctorate. As a paralegal, Leah assisted with all aspects of civil litigation, personal injury, probate, estate planning, and corporate bankruptcy matters, including representing Chapter 7 Trustees in all aspects of a bankrupty case.

Leah graduated from UNT Dallas College of Law in 2021, where she was involved in the Student Bar Association as a class representative and the American Constitution Society as a liaison to student chapter. Leah also served as a teaching assistant for the Academic Success Assistant Program (which required you to fill out an application and be among the top of your class) and was on the Board of Advocates (an Advocacy Honors Society). She made the Dean’s List three semesters in law school, earned the Cali Award (highest grade for a particular class) for Texas Criminal Procedure and Criminal Law Topics. Leah also obtained a Mediation Certificate through the completion of UNT Dallas College of Law’s 40-Hour Mediation Course.

In her free time, you can find Leah working out, spending time with her family, or trying out some new restaurant.
