James is one of the most responsive, caring attorneys I have ever come across. Usually attorneys get your credit card information, charge you, and then you’re lucky if you hear from their assistants. There is never a call or text message that goes unanswered from him- even on weekends! He is the best criminal defense lawyer in Nevada, bar none. I got involved in a very ridiculous criminal matter that’s too hard to go into here. In anticipation of it possibly going to the DA’s office, I retained James. He’s been in continuous contact with the detective investigating my case, and gives me weekly updates. He’s truly done everything in his power to help my cause. He will always fight for you to the best of his ability, gives very good advice, and goes above and beyond being helpful.
James Dean Leavitt has provided me and my corporate interests with legal advice for more than 25 years. He has demonstrated over that period of time that he is both conscientious, and extremely skilled and capable as a lawyer. When things look bleak, it is reassuring to have Mr. Leavitt on your side. I can always rely on James to respond to my urgent calls almost immediately. I have also witnessed Mr Leavitt provide wise political leadership as an elected Nevada University Regent for over a decade. James is person of the highest personal character, and is always careful to seek first to understand and then to be understood. I have always found him completely reliable with the most sensitive information.
James Dean saved me at 1:00am in the morning. My mother was able to reach him and he came to the scene where myself and several other juveniles were about to be arrested for possession of drugs. Fortunately, he knew the arresting officer and was able to persuade him to release me to him without being arrested or charged with a crime. I still can't believe that an attorney would do that late at night on a weekend. Needless to say I refer all my friends to him.
James has been a godsend to my boyfriend and I. He had a serious criminal charge pending against him, and was incarcerated for three months over some pretty absurd charges. My boyfriend is a really great guy who had zero criminal history in his background, who unfortunately found himself in an unlikely situation at this point in his life. James was able to negotiate and not only get the charge dropped, but was also able to get him house arrest when every other attorney there was no way he would receive house arrest. I would highly recommend James to anyone in need of legal counsel. We cannot thank him enough.
James answers text 24/7 and his as real as you can get if you find yourself in a jam that’s the guy to call
