In 1937, his grandfather began the LeGrand family tradition of practicing law in Texas courts, which he continued until he received a calling to trade in his bar card for the cloth. In addition to Leslie’s father, Leslie and his two sisters along with four cousins are members of the State Bar of Texas. Leslie defended his first accused citizen at the age of 15 as part of Harris County’s teen court.
