Leneigh is an associate lawyer at Pushor Mitchell and a member of our Family Law Group. Leneigh grew up in the South Okanagan and completed her undergraduate and law degrees at the University of British Columbia. She was active in law school where she managed a clinic for the Law Students Legal Advice program. She also participated in a judicial externship program where she worked at the law courts for a number of provincial Court Judges. While in law school she was a recipient of the David Roberts Prize in legal writing and was a member of the Wilson Moot team that placed first overall in the national competition.
Leneigh completed her articles at a commercial litigation firm in Vancouver and was called to the bar of British Columbia in 2010. She then returned to the Okanagan where her practice has been focused on family law.
Leneigh has an interest in alternate dispute resolution and has completed training in mediation and in the collaborative practice approach. She strives to assist her clients in coming up with creative and cost effective solutions outside of Court if possible. Leneigh also frequently appears in Court as a fierce advocate for her clients where needed. She is prepared to assist clients in all realms of their family law issues whether it be through negotiation, collaboration, drafting of all types of agreements and a full range of litigation services. Her priorities in her practice are providing empathetic and clear communication as well as assisting clients with expectations throughout this time of transition in their lives.
Outside of work she loves to run and hike the beautiful trails throughout the Okanagan and most importantly to spend time with her family and two young children

No one wants to find themselves embroiled in a nasty custody battle. But, if you do, you could do no better than Leneigh Bosdet. She is a consummate professional, who made me feel at ease with the process during a very stressful time. I was always kept informed regarding where I stood, and things moved as swiftly as they could. Always ready to collaborate, but ready to throw down if necessary - if I had to do it all over again, I would pick Ms. Bosdet every time.
