Leigh Woodruff

In November of 2017, the QCC Foundation Board elected Worcester-based attorney Leigh Woodruff.  Ms. Woodruff has been practicing law nationally for almost two decades, and she has been admitted to practice in multiple courts including the United States Supreme Court.  In civil trials and appeals, Ms. Woodruff defends clients in high stakes commercial litigation.  Many of her cases involve aviation, and Ms. Woodruff recently won a complete defense verdict for an aviation manufacturer following a 12-week trial in Seattle, Washington. 

A native of Philadelphia, Ms. Woodruff earned her law degree at Villanova University, and she also holds a master's degree in cultural anthropology from the University of Chicago.  Ms. Woodruff's prior volunteer work has included mediating child custody cases, serving on a local library board, and representing asylum applicants in immigration courts. 

QCC's service to lifelong learners and immigrant communities is of special interest.  Ms. Woodruff has recently studied Spanish at QCC, and intends to take more classes in the future.  Ms. Woodruff and her husband, an immigrant from Cuba, reside in Worcester with their daughter and two rescue dogs.
