Since working at the Free Legal Aid Clinic while attending Wayne State University Law School, attorney Jordan Leff has always been dedicated to helping those in most dire need of representation. After law school, while a solo general practitioner, Jordan served as Guardian Ad Litem for the Oakland County Probate Court, evaluating the merit of petitions for guardianship and conservatorship. Jordan is also a certified civil mediator, as well as trained in restorative justice practices.
From 2017 through 2023, Jordan practiced civil and criminal defense, specializing in legal research and writing. Also in 2017, Jordan joined the roster of the Michigan Assigned Appellate Counsel System (MAACS), providing court-appointed representation for criminal defendants on appeal. In People v. Hughes (COA No. 348991), Jordan was able to get a new mother and her child released from prison after the Michigan Court of Appeals determined that the sentencing judge discriminated against her because she was pregnant.
Most recently, Jordan worked as an Attorney Advisor for the Social Security Administration, assisting Administrative Law Judges in drafting decisions on Social Security Disability and Supplemental Security Income claims at the hearing level. Now, at Disability Law Group, Jordan assumes the role of advocate at disability hearings, using his skills and advocacy to best position clients for a positive and beneficial result.
Jordan earned a Bachelor of Arts from the University of Michigan, as well as a Master of Arts in English from Wayne State University. Jordan met his wife Caroline in law school; he loves cooking her dinners and taking walks together around their neighborhood. In his spare time, Jordan enjoys classic movies, reading, jogging, and socializing with friends and family.
