About Frank

Learn Frank’s areas of practice.

I have been a Domestic Litigator for close to a decade practicing almost exclusively in the field of Family Law.

I have represented hundreds of clients in a variety of simple to extremely complex Divorce, Child Custody, Relocation, Guardianship, Termination/Adoption, Child Support, and related litigation matters. I have succesfully taken dozens of cases to trial and succesfully appealed numerous cases to the Supreme Court and Court of Appeals. I have also drafted and negotiated numerous prenuptial agreements and stipulated Divorce and/or Child Custody agreements.

My approach to representation is to craft a specific plan tailored to my client's desired outcome and to achieve that outcome as economically as possible - whether my client is of modest means or has an 8 figure net worth. 

In my free time, I spend time outdoors with my wife and three children.

I look forward to speaking with you about unqiue solutions to your Family Law matter.

Excellence in Family Law
I interviewed several attorneys before I hired Frank and Leavitt Law Firm. This attorney and his office far exceeded any expectation that I could have had, putting the future well-being of my kids and I before any other priority. Frank has a unique and special talent of explaining very difficult legal situations in an very logical way. He addressed every concern I had going into my case with calm assurance, and handled my family court case with bold but tactful prowess. Frank receives my highest possible recommendation.

I initially consulted with Frank but had another Lawyer on retainer. As my case was underway and not going well, i soon realized i had chosen the wrong Attorney. I made a phone call to Frank and retained him as my Attorney. After that Attorney change, my case was now heading in a good direction for me. There were multiple reasons for this as follows: 1. Great communication and expert advice at all times. 2. Frank understands your finance numbers when it comes to Property, Pensions, IRA's and Annuities and how the law applies to them. 3. Makes sound suggestions, gives great advise on how to prepare your day in court. Choosing Frank and the Leavitt law firm was the best choice i made. and strongly suggest you give him a call and get him on your team !

An Attorney You Can Depend On!
I contacted Leavitt Law Firm in early 2020 in order to review my options regarding post-divorce child custody issues. I met with Frank Leavitt and was extremely impressed right away. I retained Frank, and he quickly went to work for me. He addressed both of my immediate issues and reached an acceptable settlement in little time without even needing to step into the court room. This year (2021), when it became necessary for me to move across the country for work, I didn't hesitate to return to Frank, asking him to represent me in a child relocation request. He worked hard to ensure that the best interests of my children were met. He ensured the facts were clearly presented to the judge during the trial, and his work ultimately resulted in my relocation request being granted. Frank is extremely professional, and my confidence in him grew each time I met with him. He knows the law, remembered every detail of my case along the way, and was very prepared for our day in court. The rest of his team at Leavitt Law Firm was also amazing. If you're looking for someone you can trust to represent you in a family law matter, look no further than Frank Leavitt!

Amazing
Frank helped us with a tricky non parent visitation case. He is incredibly smart, honest, and he has no issues speaking up for his client. We had met with several lawyers and he was by far the best. He knew the law and fought hard following the law.

Thank you Frank
I hired Frank to help with a child support matter. If you're searching here to see if Frank fits your needs, stop looking for other attorneys and hire Frank. You will not regret it. He is very knowledgeable about family law and takes the time to answer any questions for you. Going thru the court process is very stressful enough and Frank was always there to take some of the stress away. I was very impressed with him in Court with the judge. I highly recommend Frank and would hire him again in a heart beat. He has a great reputation in the community and is very much respected. I cannot thank him enough for helping me with my case and I'm happy that we chose to work with him.

Frank's an Excellent Family Lawyer
I believe Frank is one of the best lawyers in the state. After reviewing many lawyers, I decided to consult with Frank. I had a 30 minute meeting with him and explained my situation. He was very friendly and didn't make me feel uncomfortable. He was very honest and dedicated to working my case. He has an excellent team which are a pleasure to talk to. I had a complicated case and Frank was able to formulate the best approach for me. We agreed on a strategy and pursued it. Frank has always been very responsive to me and he actually seems to care about helping his clients rather than milking them for every penny. This is a rare quality for any lawyer and i was lucky to find him. I trust him completely and you should not think twice about hiring him for your legal cases.

Outstanding Legal Representation
Family law is the most personal, high stress experience I have ever been through. I reviewed lawyers for weeks, trying to find the right lawyer. When I talked to Frank initially he was able to clearly point out the pertinent statutes for my case and to get my desired outcome, a jurisdiction transfer. He was also always very forthcoming regarding realistic outcomes and perceptions of any evidence I had, always sure to point out any possible counter arguments or situations. Carefully he helped me to pour over the complexities of my case, and present only the most important aspects of my case for an optimal outcome. Always easy to get ahold of, prepared for anything, and able to clearly communicate with me about my case, this lawyer did a fantastic job of representing my families best interest, while keeping me informed and thus easing my confusion and any anxiety. He guidance further enabled me to be an asset in my own case. As I am out of state it was imperative that my representation was well put together. My completed affidavits and evidence are so excellent that they will continue to bolster my case that it has been transferred. His help not only ensured a favorable outcome in Vegas but will contribute greatly to any successes here. If you want want the best outcome possible for your family then you owe it to yourself to at least call and consult with Mr. Leavitt.
