Patrick R. Leverty is a lawyer you can trust, and he is always there for you.
When I contacted his firm through the phone book, I did not know what to expect. Once we sat and he told me his experiece and his way of working I felt very confident that I had made the right choice and went ahead and hire him. He made me feel that I was not alone on the problem I was facing.

Very good counsel. Well informed and very thorough.
I had a case that was turned down by many other big names in the Reno area. Pat and his firm saw the potential value in my case and took it. I was probably a bit of a problem child for them and they mostly handled me fairly well. In the end I got a settlement that I thought was fair. In fact, compared to other cases, I probably did pretty well. They did bring in another firm into my case which may have goosed the defendants a bit, but it was their call, which turned out to be a good one. In the end, an excellent choice.

Very Satisfied client
I hired Patrick because he was referred to me by a good friend. After 5 years of perfect communication and follow through, Patrick not only had everything taken care of, but saved me over $4500.00. He was there for 5 years returning phone calls the same day and responding to emails throughout the evening and early morning hours. Patrick's hard work ethic and commitment to his family, community and business is what will keep me coming back time and time again. As stressful as the situation was, Patrick made me feel like I had someone that truly cared for my case.
