Las Vegas Divorce Attorney Jennifer V. Abrams
Attorney Jennifer V. Abrams has been admitted to the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers (AAML). She is one of only eleven Las Vegas divorce attorneys that have been accepted into this elite national association. Attorney Abrams is certified by the State Bar of Nevada as a Nevada Family Law Specialist. The Nevada Family Court Judges and Las Vegas Family Law Attorneys have previously elected her to the Executive Council of the State Bar of Nevada, Family Law Section. Recently she was honored by the Justices of the Supreme Court of Nevada for her work on revising the procedures for NRCP 16.1, 16.2, 16.205 and the Financial Disclosure Forms. These procedures and forms are used by family law attorneys in every divorce case in the State of Nevada.
Ms. Abrams is admitted to practice law in three states, but chooses to practice exclusively as a divorce attorney in Las Vegas. Jennifer Abrams is regarded as both a skilled negotiator and a forceful litigator. As such, she has gained the respect of her colleagues and judges in Clark County Family Court that preside over each Las Vegas divorce matter. Fellow attorneys refer complex and high-asset divorce cases to The Abrams Law Firm. Attorney Abrams routinely represents other lawyers or their spouses. The opposing party often retains more than one Las Vegas divorce attorney to represent them against her in contested divorce matters.
Attorney Abrams is a member in good standing of the State Bar of Nevada Family Law Executive Council, State Bar of Nevada, American Bar Association, American Association for Justice, which is formerly the Association of Trial Lawyers of America, the Clark County Bar Association, the State Bar of California, and the Louisiana State Bar (both inactive). She graduated from the Pepperdine University School of Law in California, Magna Cum Laude, with a class rank of 9th out of 255. For two years she served as a staff member for Law Review at Pepperdine University.
Jennifer received her undergraduate degree in Business Administration, Accounting Theory and Practice, from California State University, Northridge and has passed the Certified Public Accountants (CPA) examination.
"Divorce, Child Custody, False Claims of Abuse and Domestic Violence are very serious matters where the truth must come to the surface in the sea of lies from the opposition. Jennifer Abrams is smart as tacks, carries a bull whip and lands on her feet when thrown complicated matters on the fly. I recommend her to everyone. She's not cheap but you cannot afford to be without her as your counsel. She works day and night and does whatever it takes to be ready for court."
- Glen K.

Extremely ethical and humane."

"In a time where I felt like I was truly in a bind, Attorney Mayo not only helped me seek out justice through the family court but his services helped me with my family. I was so impressed with his exquisite ability to apply each detail and conflict I had with a correlating court case that it was obvious the amount of time and energy he put into my case. Attorney Mayo was always a phone call or e-mail away and his advice was always appreciated. If I ever need any legal assistance in the future, I will definitely be returning to him."
- Shaun F.
"Going through a divorce let alone a high conflict divorce, can be more than overwhelming at times. Before I found Abrams Law Firm, I had been to two other law firms, and was making no progress, and feeling extremely stressed. Then a friend referred me to Vincent Mayo at Abrams Law Firm. I went to a consultation that week and was so relieved and impressed at all of questions and solutions I was getting just from the initial consultation. I ended up signing with the Firm that very day and my entire case took a turn for the best! I started to feel immediate relief and validation from all of their hard work on my case and most importantly their knowledge of what needs to be done specifically in each different situation. Once my case was in Abram's Law Firm's hands, I didn't have to constantly worry or stress, because I knew someone was fighting hard for me and my children! Finding the right Law Firm for a divorce is crucial and I am so grateful for finding this firm! And I know my children are grateful as well."

Attorney Brandon K. Leavitt has been selected by Super Lawyers Magazine as a Rising Star of Las Vegas divorce attorneys for five consecutive years. Mr. Leavitt's practice is focused on family law with an emphasis on complex divorce and post-divorce related matters.
Mr. Leavitt began his legal career in Nevada by serving as Judicial Law Clerk to the Hon. Charles J. Hoskin. Judge Hoskin is the Presiding Judge of the Clark County Family Courts. This experience allows him to counsel each client from the unique perspective of the Judges who will preside, and ultimately make rulings, on each client's case. Attorney Leavitt is a 6th generation Southern Nevadan and has family ties to the initial settlers of the Las Vegas valley. Prior to joining The Abrams Law Firm, he managed two offices in Nevada and primarily practiced as a Las Vegas divorce attorney for a nationwide family law firm.
He earned his B.A. in Communications from the University of Utah where he graduated with distinction. Attorney Leavitt earned his Juris Doctorate from Nova Southeastern University's Shepard Broad Law Center in Ft. Lauderdale, FL where he earned the CALI Excellence Award in Family Law. Adhering to his lifelong work ethic, Mr. Leavitt was employed full-time as a law clerk for a Fortune 100 company while putting himself through law school.
Attorney Leavitt is a member in good standing of the State Bar of Nevada, State Bar of Nevada Family Law Section, American Bar Association and Clark County Bar Association. Mr. Leavitt is admitted to appear in all Courts in the States of Nevada and Washington, including the United States District Court for the District of Nevada. He is also licensed to practice law in Washington State (inactive status).
"I was told to call Brandon Leavitt by a friend of mine. It was the best decision I ever made. What I liked most is that he talked to me all the way through my case and explained everything that was happening and what the Judge said. When we got to Court he was a lion in the court room. He proved to the judge that my ex is a liar. He also got me custody of my son. If I have to go to court again he will be my first call."
"Attorney Leavitt did a great job representing me. He was able to get me what I wanted most - MY KIDS! He always returned my call the same day and answered all of my questions. He took the time to explain the law to me and help me understand how the whole process worked. My ex kept delaying things and trying to be sneaky, but Brandon was able to make him crumble and he eventually caved in and just quit fighting. He is a good lawyer who provides personal service and works hard for you every single day."
