You just don’t get any more local than Jim Leventis. He was born and raised in the Midlands, graduated from Brooklyn Cayce High School, and spent seven years at the University of South Carolina’s campus in Columbia, where he obtained a Bachelor of Arts degree in Marketing and a law degree. Coming from a large, well-established family, Jim has been involved in the Columbia community all of his life. For many years, the Leventis family ran The Winners Circle Restaurant, located directly across the street from the USC School of Law. Generations of lawyers, judges and elected officials ate at The Winners Circle at some point in their lives. Jim met most if not all of them.

Unlike many lawyers these days, Jim doesn’t value himself on the volume of cases he takes; rather, Jim’s pride stems from his commitment to giving personal service and individual attention to every client he represents. If you hire Jim Leventis as your attorney, you get a lawyer who is committed to aggressively pursue your case. Truly, Jim serves as an exception to the rule these days in the passionate personal attention he devotes to every single client he represents.

Fellow attorneys, judges, prosecutors, law-enforcement officers — they all speak highly of Jim Leventis. That type of reputation stems from a lifetime of hard work, and almost 30 years’ experience in the practice of law throughout South Carolina.
