Knowledgeable Lawyer.

Joe Leventis is an extremely knowledgeable lawyer who represented my husband on a drug trafficking charge. From the moment I first spoke with him on the phone, I felt relieved. He looked over the evidence with a fine tooth comb and came up with a strategy to pursue a dismissal. He was successful and the charges were dismissed within a month!

Couldn’t be happier!

Joe was appointed to my magistrates court case. I had a felony pending Joe wasn’t the lawyer on but he took it over. He got the magistrate charge dropped the day of the trial and he got me a fine and a misdemeanor on the felony charge. I couldn’t be happier!

Saved my life.

When I was in college I was arrested for possession of marijuana. I was very worried about losing my scholarship, but more importantly being expelled from school. Leigh handled my case and got the charges dismissed. This enabled me to finish college and further my education in graduate school. Leigh essentially saved my life by allowing me to not have to alter the education path I was on and now I am having a successful professional career. Leigh is the best at what he does and I am forever grateful for what he did to help me.

They fight for you.

If you ever want to feel like someone cares and is in your corner and feels like your fight is his fight, Joe would be the guy I would call every time. Joe represented me on a drug possession charge. I was on probation in another state so I needed it to go away to avoid going back to jail. When we got to court, he spoke to the officer outside. Next thing I know, I am shaking the officer's hand and being told the case is dismissed. I don’t know what happened, but I am glad it did!

Forever indebted.

I retained the Leventis Law Firm to assist me with a criminal matter. After my initial meeting with Mr. Leventis, I felt for the first time that everything was going to be okay. They took the time to explain step by step the criminal process in South Carolina and always kept me apprised of the progress of my case. They were communicative and professional and personally invested in making sure that I received a positive outcome. I would not hesitate to recommend the Leventis Law Firm to my friends and family and am forever indebted to Mr. Leventis and his team for providing me with a second chance.

Very happy.

I used to work in a restaurant Leigh and his wife Jenny used to frequent back in the 80s. After I graduated high school, I left that job and we lost touch for over 20 years. I got charged with DUI recently and asked a friend in law enforcement who I should hire. He recommended Leigh which surprised me because his wife is a lawyer. But I took his advice and hired Leigh, which turned out to be a great decision. Leigh made himself available for all of my calls regarding my license. He seemingly knew everything about the drivers license issue and the criminal matter. We got a great outcome on the case. I was VERY happy with Leigh and would refer him to anyone in criminal trouble.

Very informative.

I recently went through a DUI charge that I thought I would never have to experience. Leigh was like a breath of fresh air because this would have a huge impact on my professional career as well as my family life. He made me feel very comfortable and informed me of the whole process from start to finish. He had all the answers to my questions and I truly felt like he was looking out for my best interest. My family and I are forever in his debt for the way that he took care of my case. I would send anyone in this type of situation to Leigh!

Compassion, patience, and determination.

Words cannot express the compassion, patience, and determination I received while working with Leigh Leventis. My case took a grueling three years before I was ultimately found not guilty. The entire time I was treated as if I were the only client the Leventis Law Office was helping. I will always have tremendous respect and appreciation for Leigh and Joe. Leigh is truly in a class all his own.

Outstanding Lawyers.

Leigh Leventis and I were roommates in law school. Leigh is the finest person I have ever known, and I became part of the Leventis family. Leigh and his son Joe are outstanding lawyers in every regard. They are smart, experienced, hardworking and true professionals in every way. Leigh and Joe treat every client like a member of their family. I would highly recommend Leigh and Joe to anyone who needs a lawyer.

Felt like family.

In 2016 our only daughter was involved in a major car accident which could have taken her life. It was only be divine appointment we came across the office of Leigh Leventis and his staff. The very first time my daughter and I stepped into their office, the atmosphere was very pleasant and felt like family. I must say out of several experiences with previous attorneys, this office and staff were beyond our expectation. What impressed me the most was the professionalism of their staff, the consistency in communication, their integrity, sacrifices, and the hard work they put in staying on top of things, and even calling just to check in to see how our daughter was doing. I would give them a AAA+ and would highly recommend them to anyone. Because of the office of Attorney Leigh Leventis and staff it made life easier for our family, and we will forever be grateful.
