Lion Legal Roots

Lion Legal was born in 2012 in a one room second floor office (with no elevator) by our founding partner, Victoria “Tori” Leigh, a freshly minted (and very competitive) lawyer, with a strong commitment to be among the absolute Best Lawyers in Arkansas. 

Tori is an attorney and didn’t like them – her perspective from her middle-class upbringing, was “no wonder no one likes lawyers.” Most attorneys make things complicated, and are extremely disorganized, and then have the arrogance to charge outrageous amounts of money for not preparing for court or even calling their clients back.  

Only knowing the kind of attorney she did not want to be, Tori focused on each client, one by one, researching and preparing hours, honing her trial skills, keeping clients involved in the process, ensuring they knew what they should be doing and what she was doing and when they were going to hear from her again, and learning from her mistakes (there were many). 

Word spread and clients came faster and from further away. In 2018, Lion Legal moved from that walk-up closet-office to a large building in downtown North Little Rock and in a little over ten years, we’ve grown over 200x the revenue of our first year. This is remarkable for a small business – we were first runner up in the CLIO “Best Growth” 2022 Reisman Award, (a nation-wide competition with thousands of contestants) & we have hundreds of five-star reviews online, with more being added every day. 

Our success is a direct result of our high standards – to be and stay among the absolute Best Lawyers in Arkansas, in how we deliver our legal services, our commitment to a clear process and obtaining the best results possible in every case, every time.

Why the Lion? 

The Mighty Lion was chosen as our emblem because the Lion is creative and wise; the Lion leads the jungle and Lion Legal leads in legal services. Being among the “Best Lawyers in Arkansas” takes a genuine commitment to obtaining the best results possible, transparency, and winning. We call it “absolute truthfulness and absolute preparedness.” The Lion doesn’t back down from a fight (but everyone knows he’s the King – so he rarely must engage in a fight.)  

Our Lion lawyers have spent years watching attorneys show up to trials having not yet reviewed the file their paralegal prepared (and often not having talked with their clients), experiencing older “wiser” attorneys not respond to settlement offers or discovery demands for months on end, or suffering through blowhard bully attorneys misstate the law or the facts (and then fall completely flat at trial).

These direct experiences instilled the deep, deep knowledge and confidence that age, gender, nor bar number (which starts with the year the lawyer was licensed) correlates in any way with being among the Best Lawyers in Arkansas.

Community Leaders

Not only are we legal leaders, but we are also community leaders. The Lion is courageous, just, and dignified; he is committed to serving his entire community and so are we.

Lion Legal is a North Little Rock community staple. We partner with local libraries to plan and host regular free legal clinics and participate in all the local festivals and community events. Members of our Lion Pride sit on countless boards, and volunteer across the spectrum – from leading a Girl Scout troop to adopting Angels from the Salvation Army Christmas tree and everything in between.

Lion Legal Today

Today, we are Lion Legal, the Pride of Arkansas, experienced, prepared, truthful, trial-hardened attorneys who thrive on the competition and the thrill of winning.

Not every lawyer has the desire or the abilities to be a Lion Lawyer, but our Pride of client-focused and process-oriented legal professionals provide the clear guidance and structure that clients crave and obtain the best result possible under the circumstances, every time – whether in the courtroom or the negotiating room.

Over the years, we’ve put pen to paper, articulating our billing and communication philosophies, clear procedures, and corporate values, published on our website and in our manual, guiding all our decisions from the first consultation to the final trial. We’ve developed a system that is second to none in the legal client experience in Arkansas.

We focus our practice on four major divisions: family, criminal, general civil transactions and litigation, and probate/estate planning. We also offer ad litem services, supervised visitation services, and mediation services.

Pride protection is a life-long promise

Our civic-minded Lion Lawyers are your lawyers for life. Always keep our contact information nearby, so no matter the problem life presents, you can resolve it with a simple “call my lawyer.”
