“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.
