Client Reviews
Adam has been my corporate attorney for over 10 years. He is extremely professional and knowledgeable. He efficiently moves through the judicial system and always keeps the best interest of his client in the foreground. Janet
We hired Adam to represent us for a patent dispute. He was excellent from the very beginning. He was thorough, detailed, honest, forthright, succinct, and available to us for questions at all times. Needless to say he achieved the best outcome we could have hoped for, and I cannot recommend him highly enough. I only wish I could have given him a check mark on all of the attributes listed on LinkedIn, but it would only allow 3. Matt
All of us at Be a Part of the Conversation are indebted to Doug Leavitt and the staff at Danziger Shapiro & Leavitt for their guidance in helping us to establish and grow our nonprofit organization. Doug has been an invaluable resource, providing insight and understanding from the very beginning. In addition to answering our endless questions, he is also incredibly proactive – tirelessly working to ensure that our organization is moving forward in the best light possible. I honestly do not know where we would be today without the support and generosity of Doug and the team at Danziger Shapiro & Leavitt. Kim
We retained Doug to help us in a business dispute regarding several investments we had in restaurants and real estate in Cape May. Doug proved to be skilled in both litigation and negotiation, as well as reducing the settlement to writing, which required a thoughtful approach and high attention to detail to protect out interests because we had to do take back financing. The security agreements had to be carefully written so we could take back the restaurant and IP if the need arose- which it did! Thankfully everything was in place and Doug was able to get everything back and we came out unharmed. It is clear to us that Doug truly cares about his clients. Unless something like this happens to you, you wouldn't know how important it is to have the right attorney. We do. Brian
I am an officer in a Civil Engineering firm in New Jersey with over 45 employees and have retained many attorneys in the past. However, Doug Leavitt has helped my firm in reviewing and developing new corporate documents and professional agreements. Doug is an excellent attorney who is very personable and knowledgeable and a pleasure to work with. Paul
