Will definitely work with again!
He is very considerate and a genuine person. He and his team are amazing and excellent with response times. They feel like family and really care about your case, I hope I won’t need to but if I do, I will definitely work with them again.

Ben with Leavitt Law Firm helped me style my legal issue. He work was precise, taken care of correctly the first time, and all goals we set in consultation were achieved. I would recommend Leavitt Law Firm to anybody in need of counsel.

Great Representation!
I hired Ben Leavitt to represent me in my highly contentious divorce. Divorce is a horrible situation to be in, but having someone like Ben on my side made me feel confident while I was going through the process of divorce. His knowledge, communication, and negotiation methods were VERY impressive. I was very impressed by the creative solutions Ben was able to come up with addressing tough issues that arose. He got me what I wanted out of my divorce and I couldn't be happier. Needless to say, I highly recommend hiring Ben!

Gave Me Confidence And Fought For Me During The Hardest Time of My Life
I contacted Leavitt law firm in the midst of a custody/divorce case and I cannot explain how incredible Benjamin was from the consultation. He didn’t sugar coat anything and was always straight forward but never made me feel as if my question were stupid. He gave solid advice but when I felt I wanted something different he worked to get me what I wanted. He was always quick to respond, which gave me great comfort. More importantly he was able to not only smoothly pick up where my previous lawyers were but answer questions I’d been asking for months, fix issues I had with other agreements, and was able to get me more than my previous lawyers even said was possible. Benjamin was able to work with me during a trying time in my life when my money was heavily tied up in the divorce. I couldn’t be more grateful for his and Stephanie’s hard work, patience, and guidance during the hardest time of my life. Benjamin Leavitt is passionate, professional, and respectful and if you’re in need of anyone to assist you for Family, Divorce, or Custody look no further than Benjamin and his team at Leavitt Law Firm.

Thank you for everything
Being out of the area and going through a tough divorce, Benjamin and the team walked me through every step without sugar coating and preparing me for every eventuality. The outcome well exceeded my expectations and I would recommend this team for any family court needs. One of the best law firms in the area.

Thank you for everything Ben!
I cannot thank Ben Leavitt, with Leavitt law firm enough. He worked tirelessly and passionately to help me with my relocation request for my son Noah. His work was thorough, and his spirit was strong in trial. I do believe that without Ben, I may not have had the ruling in my favor. Throughout the months leading up to trial, we communicated regularly, I never felt as if was isolated or alone. He listened and reviewed all information that we shared with him and applied them to our case and our motions. He compiled all exhibits in an organized manor that was easily used in trial. During the trial, Ben was graceful, energetic, and passionate in advocating for my relocation. I believe as he is a father himself, he takes custody very seriously and does not take any shortcuts. All in all, I would strongly recommend Ben Leavitt, with Leavitt law firm. I will never forget the work he put in for me, as this outcome meant everything for my son and for me.

Best lawyer in town
First time using a lawyer and it was an excellent experience. Explained every detail and possible outcome. Accessible any time of the day. Friendly staff and very accommodating. Fast process since my lawyer was on top of it.

Best Lawyer Ever
Crushed it for me. Was way above the other party. Ben truly prepared and was on his A-Game. The two of us strategized and were miles above the opposition. He is the guy to get the best outcome and he will work day and night. Anybody that has Ben on your side will be victorious.

Good Family lawyer
The Leavitt Law firm assisted me during the most difficult time of my life. They were always available to me for questions and advice, my children and I are most grateful for the all of their help during this transitional time. They were clear with the law and fought hard so that my family was taken care of and treated fairly. Ben was my attorney but I never felt like I couldn't ask for assistance from Dennis or Frank. It is truly a family law office in more than one sense of the word. If you need help with good family law, this is the place, these are the attorneys and I am forever thankful. I highly recommend the Leavitt Law Firm for any family/divorce lawyers.

Family Values
After getting the run around by 2 different law firms in Las Vegas, who were only available when collecting payments, I was referred to Leavitt Law Firm. I paid for my initial consultation with Dennis, who listened to my case with compassion and interest. Since I was recommended to Benjamin by a friend, I asked that he be the lawyer taking care of the details in my case. Benjamin was very thorough in reviewing all the necessary documents and the hearing minutes that I had been through to that point. He was knowledgeable and made me feel like my case was a priority. He familiarized himself with the details of my personal case so that we could discuss it without me having to repeat myself and remind him who I was every time we corresponded. My phone calls were returned in a timely manner, and emails were always replied to promptly. (Unlike the other attorneys I dealt with.) If your family matters are important enough to need the assistance of an attorney, do not trust those matters to a discount firm!! There is a difference between a discount and good value for the money. Leavitt Law Firm is ethical and made me feel like they really worked to provide the best council and represented my family’s best interest. I hope to never be in a situation again where I need an attorney’s help, but I would not hesitate to use Leavitt Law Firm if needed again.

Excellent choice for representation during divorce
Ben did a great job helping me navigate my divorce. He was honest and straightforward with me and even helped me with a great payment arrangement for his fees. I would absolutely recommend him, he is knowledgeable, engaged and very easy to work with. I went into my divorce thinking I'd lose my kids and my house, Ben helped me keep both, he was able to get me a better outcome than I thought would be possible.

Relocation Case
Ben was absolutely amazing throughout the entire process. Our trial came exceptionally fast and he worked diligently to get everything put together in time and all of his work was phenomenal. Amazingly personable, professional, and I would recommend him to anyone for his services! Thank you again for everything.

Divorce mess
I am from California and originally started divorce proceedings there in 2019. Due me handling it myself and Covid and moving to Nevada, I could not get this done. My paperwork kept getting rejected by the courts there. I contacted Benjamin here in Nevada. He told me it would be fast and easy. IT ABSOLUTELY WAS! He held true to his word and him and his staff always answered emails, calls and made me feel reassured.

Honest, Intelligent, Hard Working, and Sincere Attorney
Attorney Ben Leavitt has been my attorney for over a year now. I would highly recommend this law firm, and especially Ben to anyone. Ben was nothing but professional. Immediately after retaining this attorney, I noticed how quickly he responded to my questions and case. I knew he was there to help. He made me feel important and appreciated. He quickly reached out to the opposing attorney, and quickly filed Documents for my case. My case was not easy, and in the beginning, although Ben was working hard, I felt that we were not making any headway. However when push came to shove in the end Ben worked his tail off day in and day out to prove my case; and not only did I win back my joint custody with my son, but my attorney proved to the judge my ex was living a double standard and hands down, we won the case. I would recommend this law firm to anyone for their excellent hard work!

Fast as possible and efficient
Ben was absolutely amazing to work with. I was having a hard time having communication with my spouse, Ben was extremely courteous and understanding to our situation. He was able to complete our annulment even faster than the projected time frame. He made everything a stress free process and I couldn’t be more thankful.
