Review Douglas Leavitt

About Me

Douglas G. Leavitt served in the United States Navy as a Utilitiesman in the Seabees for five years. Following his service in the Navy, Mr. Leavitt began his undergraduate studies at Bluffton University and earned his bachelors degree in Organizational Management while working in a steel mill in Northwest Ohio.  Mr. Leavitt then received his Juris Doctor in 2012 from the University of Toledo College of Law.


During law school, Mr. Leavitt worked as a clerk for a large insurance company, interned with the Ada County Prosecutors Office in Boise, ID, and interned with the Toledo Municipal Court Public Defender’s Office. While earning his J.D., Mr. Leavitt was a two-time recipient of the Robert J.W. Meffley Memorial Scholarship award. In addition, Mr. Leavitt was honored with the Richard LaValley Scholarship and the Reinberger Fellowship Award.


Admitted to practice in the State of Idaho, Mr. Leavitt is currently a member of the Idaho Bar Association. He is also a member of the Young Lawyers and Family Law sections of the Idaho Bar.


“I feel my clients appreciate the fact that they have an attorney who listens to their needs.  Unfortunately, some of our best legal minds forget that there is an extraordinarily human element to what we do. Attorneys are called ‘Counselors;’ I have not forgotten the reason for that moniker.  I believe in providing my clients with all possible solutions to their legal issues, then sitting down with them and evaluating what option best suits their needs and desires.  Honest and sound legal advice allows clients to make the best decision for themselves.  In the end, my goal is to give my clients peace of mind – something that is invaluable.”


When not in the office, Mr. Leavitt enjoys experiencing Idaho’s great outdoors, watching college football, Tigers baseball, and spending time with his family.
