Grace Adler meets Leo in Central Park while she is on her way to be artificially inseminated with gay best friend Will's baby. When Will finds out the two are dating, he forces Grace to choose between Leo and the baby. In November 2002, Grace and Leo were married at a group ceremony in Central Park, which was supposed to be broadcasted on "The Today Show". It was later revealed that the ceremony was not legal, but the two officially marry at a ceremony soon after. Leo and Grace's relationship was a constant source of tension between Will and Grace. Leo's true first name is Marvin, as is revealed by his mother at the reception of Grace's and his wedding. The marriage failed less than two years in, when Leo reveals that he had a one-night stand while working in Cambodia for Doctors Without Borders. After Leo came clean about his affair, Grace briefly considers continuing their marriage but quickly decides she wants a divorce.

Leo reappears during season eight (a little over a year after the divorce), in the episode "Love Is in the Airplane," in which he and Grace have a sexual encounter on an airplane after coincidentally ending up on the same flight to London. The result is Grace's pregnancy, as discovered in the season-eight episode "The Definition of Marriage." However, a couple months later, when Grace meets Leo with the intention of telling him that she is pregnant with his baby, he informs her that he is engaged to another woman, so Grace decides not to tell him about the pregnancy.

In the series finale (May 2006), however, Leo tells a heavily pregnant Grace that he loves her. They subsequently raise their daughter, Lila, together. Lila ends up marrying Will's son, Ben, whom Will raises with his domestic partner, Vince.
