BIO
Since the age of five, Mr. Leighton's dream has been to be an attorney. His love for the practice of law is unmistakable and his passion for helping his clients is contagious. Mr. Leighton met Mr. Abdo in grade school at Our Lady of Perpetual Help in Scottsdale, Arizona. From there they formed a lasting bond and friendship that led them to Arizona State University, where they were roommates. Both Mr. Leighton and Mr. Abdo inspired each other to both graduate early and with honors. While Mr. Leighton decided to head to sunny Malibu, California to attend law school, he and Mr. Abdo remained close friends. Their friendship and competitive nature has allowed for Leighton & Abdo, PLLC to flourish in a relatively short period of time. Mr. Leighton is also incredibly proud of his close relationship with his older brother Joshua, a fellow partner at Leighton & Abdo, PLLC. The close relationship between all three partners allows for the firm to provide a unique and team oriented approach to the practice of law.
