Best lawyer in Las Vegas
I hired Mr. Leavitt for a custody dispute. He was very attentive, caring and extremely punctual. He will give his honest opinions on what needs to be done for the case and how each proceeding will go. Mr. Leavitt looks at every angle and aspect of his client’s cases. He helped me win my court case and get the most out of it. Mr. Leavitt is extremely knowledgeable in the court room and in the Nevada law. I would 100 % recommend him for any case. Going into mr. Leavitt office you will notice that he has the most rewards for top lawyer In Nevada.

Excellent Lawyer
If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Ben is an excellent 5 star+ lawyer and has an amazing team behind him. From my first consultation to my trial date, which was a year later, Ben was always very attentive to my case, concerns, questions and more. He and his team replied to all my emails immediately and kept me in loop through each stage of my case. Upfront, honest and didn’t sugar coat anything. Not to mention, the great job Ben did for me during my trial, which led to a very positive outcome for myself and my child. I am more than happy with my results and would highly recommend Ben to anyone. Thanks again Ben! You rock

Ben Leavitt - Attorney Review
Ben Leavitt has been my divorce attorney for on-going divorce challenges for roughly 2 years. In my time working with Ben, I’ve been incredibly impressed with his service and the full team at Leavitt Law Firm. When you’re dealing with the most important parts of your life including children, finances and emotional stress, having a strong team-member to manage the journey is critical, at minimum, and Ben has been that without fail. A few reasons that come to mind: Guidance – The team at Leavitt Law Firm have 30+ years of experience and collaborate team who partner together. Their insight allows them to quickly analyze individual situations, propose multiple options, and suggest recommendations based on client goals, Nevada law, and history of similar situations. The information allows for effective collaborating on the best course of action and quick decisions. Urgency – I’ve personally had multiple urgent needs regarding custody disputes, interpretation of Nevada law and finances. These are some of the most important things in my world, and having an attorney who responds / acts quickly has been beyond helpful. Financial – A two-part response: The team from the beginning proposed best case scenarios for my financial situation and recommended how to work with my former spouse in a way to maximize both of our well-being. I’ve appreciated that it’s clear Ben is looking out for my best financial interest and is one reason he has consistent cliental 2. Ben charges a more than fair rate for his service and honestly could charge more. He is transparent with billing and has taken very good care of me in this regard. Ethics – I have zero doubt Ben and team are operating in my best interest in every way. This is in negotiations with other attorneys, client billing, recommendations, etc. Having the peace of mind knowing you’re working with a great attorney is invaluable. Ben and team worked tirelessly to fight for what was most important to me, securing the time and relationship with my 6-year-old son. I can’t image a life without him, and the days I may have missed if my divorce wasn’t managed appropriately. I highly recommend this group if you’re in the challenging situation of divorce or nearing this point in your life. It’s tough to go through, but if you’re in this position, there’s nothing more important than managing it appropriately and Ben will ensure it’s taken care of.

The BEST ever
Let me preface this with the fact that I’ve NEVER had somebody fight for ME the way he did. Every word, every tear, every FEAR, everything that had me panicking he listened to. Despite how much I rambled, despite how much I cried, despite barely being able to get through my sentences, he NEVER skipped a beat. He LISTENED first and foremost, he CARED, and THEN have he empathized with me and calmed me as he thoroughly explained everything to me in a way I could understand despite the emotional turmoil I was feeling. He broke everything down so perfectly that it brought so much comfort to know that I was NOT fighting this alone and that he was there for me EVERY step of the way no matter how big or how small those steps were. He eased into everything with such fluidity and grace never losing track of what we needed to do even though I was basically a plate of spaghetti that felt like I couldn’t find the end. He moved mountains for me, which made my path so much easier to focus on when very little was put on my plate because Lord knows that anything else resting on my shoulders probably would have made me collapse. He is so genuine and understanding that nothing about my reaction turned him off, if anything he dove in harder to make things work for me. There are not enough words, prayers, NOTHING that could ever truly express the gratitude or the respect that I have for him. I will be living my life thanking him everyday for everything he has done and accomplished for me.

Great attorney!!
Ben helped me helped me review and negotiate a premarital agreement and explained my rights. He made sure that I knew exactly was I was signing and what it meant for me in the future, in case of divorce. Him and his staff were extremely kind. One of his paralegals, Jennifer promptly assisted with getting me appointments and made sure the agreement was received and ready for Ben upon my arrival. Thank you!

Awesome Lawyer
Ben was amazing! I had a very contentious and long custody battle to relocate my children. Ben was always up front and honest with me about what to expect. After seeing what type of people the 2 attorneys the opposition had I was very happy I had a lawyer like Ben. He was never nasty, he stuck to the facts and was very thorough. Through this emotional timing he was so understanding and made me feel as if he truly understood what I was experiencing. I can’t imagine having any better of an attorney. I would highly recommend Ben and his team at Leavitt Law.

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 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.
