Suzanne M. Leff

Suzanne Leff is a partner at Winzenburg, Leff, Purvis & Payne, LLP. She provides general counsel to community associations, and focuses on general business representation, document drafting and interpretation, contract review, covenant enforcement, and governance practices. She presents educational seminars to property managers, board members, and other attorneys who work with community associations. In 2011, she acted as program chair for two CBA-CLE full-day seminars for attorneys. Those classes covered community association responsible governance policies and practices and issues that communities face during economic downturns and stalled development. Suzanne writes articles for the firm's blog on topics such as changes to legislation affecting community associations, fiduciary duties of board members, the practical application of laws affecting associations, and alternative dispute resolution. She works on legislation impacting associations as a member of the Community Associations Institute's Colorado Legislative Action Committee.

Outside of her law practice, Suzanne devotes time to volunteer activities that support Denver Public Schools. Most recently she served as co-chair of a community committee that developed recommendations for improving schools in Northwest Denver.

Suzanne received her law degree from the University of Colorado at Boulder School of Law, where she served on the Board of Editors of the Colorado Journal of International Environmental Law and Policy. She earned her B.A. in English and professional writing, with distinction, from Purdue University. To contact Suzanne directly, you may e-mail her at
