Mr. Leach helps advise and defend mortgage lenders and servicers on a wide variety of issues, including lender liability, contested foreclosures and real estate litigation.

Before joining Baker Donelson, Mr. Leach clerked for two years for the Honorable B. Waugh Crigler, Federal Magistrate Judge of the Western District of Virginia.

  • Obtained a final summary judgment for a property insurance carrier, finding that the claimant's damages, which were comprised of an unsolicited engineering report, were not covered under the insurance policy.

  • Awarded a final summary judgment in the North District of Florida on the insureds' claim that their beachfront property suffered a collapse, which was not supported by the undisputed evidence and specific policy language provided for collapse coverage.

  • Secured a dismissal with prejudice of a lawsuit filed by a water mitigation vendor, with the court finding that the subject insurance policy's anti-assignment provision was enforceable, which also led to an award of entitlement to attorney's fees to our client.
