On November 8, 2022, Gray Reed Of Counsel Jeff Leach was reelected to serve his sixth term in the Texas House of Representatives, representing House District 67 in Collin County.
Since taking office in 2013, Leach has served on the House Committee on Economic and Small Business Development, the House Committee on Criminal Jurisprudence, the House Committee on Government Transparency and Operations and the House Committee on Rules & Resolutions. He has also served as Vice Chairman of the House Committee on Urban Affairs and was elected by his colleagues to serve on the Texas House Republican Caucus Policy Committee. In addition, Leach was assigned to chair the House Committee on Judiciary & Civil Jurisprudence for the 86th and 87th Legislative Sessions.
At Gray Reed, Leach’s practice is focused primarily in the areas of complex commercial and civil litigation, construction law and real estate. He serves as outside general counsel for general contractors and various other construction clients, handling everything from litigation and transactions to employment issues, regulatory compliance and taxation. He also frequently steps outside of his core practice and lends a hand to the firm’s other clients in a variety of special projects.
“Jeff is an invaluable resource to our firm and our clients,” Managing Partner Cary Gray says. "As the Dallas Morning News observed in their 2022 endorsement, Jeff ‘remains rooted in deeply conservative values [but] has embraced bipartisanship’ and ‘illustrated an openness to negotiation.’ We’ve seen this with our clients, as well. Regardless of where clients fall on the political spectrum, he is available to answer questions, provide clarification on legislation, listen to feedback and ideas, and assist in navigating the Texas regulatory landscape.”
Leach is a graduate of Southern Methodist University Dedman School of Law and attended Baylor University for his undergraduate degree.
