A Proud Minneapolis Background:
Thomas “Tommy” Leavitt was born and raised on the South Side of Minneapolis and is proud to continue to call that community home. He attended high school at Minneapolis Washburn, where he played both basketball and football. On the gridiron is where he truly shined, earning a scholarship to play for the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers. Leavitt was known for being both a smart and aggressive player, two traits he proudly carries into the courtroom.
A Prestigious Education:

To be the best, you need to surround yourself with the best. Leavitt spent two years being mentored by prominent defense attorney Earl Gray. Leavitt first met Gray when Gray gave him a job as a research assistant during law school. Leavitt then spent two years being mentored and observing Gray in state and federal court on cases ranging from felony drug crimes to murder.
After law school, Leavitt picked up contract work and valuable mentorship from noted trial attorney Samuel McCloud. McCloud is known for his no-nonsense attitude, which lead him to accrue a larger-than-life reputation and win over 500 jury trials while making groundbreaking case law in the state of Minnesota.
Leavitt now offices along-side skilled trial attorney Ryan Pacyga--a well-known criminal law expert on radio and television.
