About Jeffrey

Learn Jeffrey’s areas of practice.

I obtained a Biology degree from the University of Kansas in 1998, and was awarded a Juris Doctor degree from Washburn University of Law in 2001.

Starting my career as assistant district attorney in Kansas City, I was primarily assigned to litigating child abuse and neglect cases. I have first-chaired over 20 jury trials since 2001 that involved either a homicide or high level sex offense.

 

In 2006 I formed Leiker Law Office P.A. to represent clients with various family law issues. Leiker Law Office, P.A. is a family law firm dedicated to providing the highest quality service and representation to clients seeking assistance with divorce, paternity, custody, domestic violence cases, and appeals.

I try to maintain a presence in criminal law even though our focus has been famly law since 2006. In 2013 I was appointed by the governor to sit on the Kansas State Board of Indigent Defense Services and the appointment was unanimously confirmed by the Kansas Senate  (elected Board chairman in 2016). This Board generally oversees all of the public defender offices within the state, and the millions of dollars in state funding allocated to the same.

The best in the business
I consulted with Jeff about a very difficult, messy and emotionally charged custody battle. Jeff detailed my options, explained the approach we should take, and answered all my questions. This was far from an open and closed case, due to the other parties defiance for no reason other than to be defiant. Jeff kept me informed, discussed next steps at every turn, and answered many many of my questions. In the end, it played out the exact way he said it would. He is knowledgeable to an expert level of the law as it relates to custody/child support disputes. I will never hire another attorney and refer any and all that ask to him!

Excellent divorce attorney
I hired Jeff for a horrible divorce in Johnson County. Restraining order, child abuse, parental alienation, and a spouse with mental health issues refusing to settle the divorce. Jeff has handled everything perfectly. He's patient even when I've been at my wits end with my spouse's behavior. Jeff's been thorough and understands what to do ahead of each step in the divorce proceedings. My divorce case has been as high conflict a divorce as the judge said she's ever seen so if Jeff can anticipate all the things that have arisen in my case I'm sure he can help you. I would recommend Jeff to anyone with a family law issue without hesitation.

The best choice we ever made was to hire Jeff!!
Jeff represented my husband in a divorce case and is now representing him in a custody case. He is very honest and upfront. I feel like he gives great advice and our case is moving in the right direction. His retainer was very affordable and he is worth every penny. It's very easy to reach him if we need something or have a question.

I'm a father in Kansas with custody!
I called Jeff after my ex moved with my kids to Arizona. I hadn't seen them in 74 days. Jeff was very firm with my ex and did an AMAZING job. Kansas is a "mother state", but I'm a real life father in Kansas with custody Of his kids. It can be done guys. Don't give up, hire Jeff, document EVERYTHiNG and tell the truth. He couldn't of done a better job. Two thumbs WAY up!!

Great attorney!!!!!!!
Mr. Leiker took my case after he was highly recommended to me by a friend who went through an ugly divorce using his firm. Mr. Leiker had a lot of ideas that would have never even occurred to me. My case ended up settling a month before a trial, and I am very happy with the results. Mr. Leiker seemed to take a personal interest in what was happening in my case, and he made me feel very comfortable. This firm is really good. I definitely recommend Jeffrey Leiker

excellent firm. very professional. A++
Jeff Leiker Law helped me get through a terrible custody fight with my child's father, and the court ended up going with my parenting plan. It seemed like I had a stupid question every day for jeff, but he always calmly spent as much time with me as I needed to explain things. My case was very painful, but I don't know how I could have gotten through it without jeff's help. great attorney. A+++

great family lawyer!
Mr. Leiker assisted me with getting my rights as a grandparent. My son is deceased, and his child's mother is in and out of her life. Mr. Leiker helped me get custody of my grandchild to protect her. I am very happy with the results in Court. I will definitely use attorney Jeff Leiker in the future when I need legal help.

Best Leavenworth County Divorce Attorney
Mr. Leiker had to take over my Leavenworth County Divorce/Custody case for my previous attorney who had gotten me nowhere in 11 months. My children were suffering, and I was paying way too much support to my ex. For about a third of what I paid my first attorney, Mr. Leiker was able to resolve my case exactly the way I wanted in just over a month. would definitely recommend. very aggressive and smart. AWESOME ATTORNEY

Fantastic Attorney. Really helped me and my kids.
Mr. Leiker & his paralegal Anna are incredible. They are always willing and able to help me understand things no matter how difficult that I feel my issues are. I have never been through the divorce process, and every time I call with a question, I get a quick response from Jeff. I am very comfortable with this group, and very pleased with where my case is at now. Jeff spends a lot of time with me preparing for hearings, and he seems ready for anything. I highly recommend his firm.

Great Attorney!
Mr. Leiker represented me during my divorce, and he has handled various legal matters for me since that time. I am always impressed with his ideas after we talk about an issue in my case. Highly recommend. Very professional.

Post divorce
I hired Mr.leiker to enforce divorce agreement. He overcharged. Not worth the job he did. Has his own agenda instead of my interest. Filed wrong motion according to appellate court. 7500.00 and he couldn't answer a direct question. Didn't show up for appeal. Prays on the vulnerable. Not a good idea to hire this attorney if you want things done correctly!
