Leake Law Firm and its Historic Past

Known for decades for professionalism and integrity, the roots of the Leake Law Firm, PLLC stretch back almost 70 years. After serving in the U.S. Navy in World War II, Loncy Lot Leake, Jr. used the G.I. Bill to attend Southern Methodist University where he earned both a Bachelor of Business Administration degree and a Bachelor of Laws degree. After successfully passing the Texas Bar Exam, Loncy moved his family to Mesquite, Texas where he proceeded to open up one of the first legal practices in the area in 1951.

The Leake Law Firm has a long and proud history. Our reputation goes beyond the practice of law but to the core of the Leake Family. We don't let our client's down, and we won't let you down.

Our Firm's Founder - Loncy Lot Leake, Jr.

Over the next several decades, Loncy was heavily involved in the surrounding community. His service included 35 years as a Board Member on the North Texas Water Board, serving on the original Board of Trustees for the Dallas County Community College District, serving on the Mesquite City Council, and founding little league baseball in Mesquite, the latter of which resulted in Mesquite's original little league baseball field being renamed in his honor. During that time, the law firm went through various forms and locations in "Old" Mesquite.

Paul R. Leake and the Firm Today

In 1980, Loncy's youngest son, Paul R. Leake graduated from law school and joined his father's practice. The two worked alongside one another for many years, eventually forming Leake & Leake, PC. Whereas Loncy focused more on transactional work, Paul became an accomplished trial attorney, having tried hundreds of cases over the course of his ongoing career.

Paul also followed in his father's footsteps in terms of community involvement, among other things serving seven years as a Trustee for the Dallas County Community College District, helping to found Kids Quest playground in Mesquite, and twice serving as the President of Old Town Mesquite, an organization whose mission is to restore the beauty of historical downtown Mesquite.

After the elder Leake retired, Paul continued the family business in Mesquite until moving the business east to Forney, Texas in 2007 where it is today. The Leake Law Firm, PLLC has had various different partners, associates, employees, and even names throughout its long history, but on thing has always remained the same: a tireless passion for helping people with their legal problems in a professional, experience manner. If you have a legal problem, please don't hesitate to ask how we can help.
