Best PI Attorney around!
I've known, and worked with, Scott for almost 10 years. Last summer, I had to retain him for a personal injury matter for my son. My son is young and Scott was not only efficient and professional, but also caring. It meant the world to our family that he made everything so easy for us after a scary car accident. We were so happy with the settlement-it was much more than we had anticipated! I would highly recommend Scott and have referred many friends, family, and even my own clients to him over the years.

Happy to recommend
My son and I were hit by a driver who did not have any insurance. I did not think that we were going to be able to even get our medical bills paid but Attorney Leventhal was able find a way to have my own insurance policy cover these expenses and also put money aside for my son. We are very grateful for what he was able to do for us.

I was injured in a car accident and the insurance company would not treat me fairly. I kept getting the run around and they seemed more interested in having me sign statements than getting my medical bills paid. I was frustrated and a friend of mine recommended Attorney Leventhal. My case resolved quickly and I believe that I was very fairly compensated. I know that I could not have had this kind of result on my own and I really appreciate what he did for me.

"I've worked closely with Attorney Leventhal in the New Haven County Bar Association for a number of years. He is dedicated and diligent in all that he does. Based on this, as well as his professional experience, verdict record and praise I have heard from prior clients, I recently referred a family member to him, who has been thrilled with his work. I strongly recommend Attorney Leventhal for personal injury matters, complex litigation, and criminal defense matters."
