He is very strict wen he tells you he is going to do he will do but with compassion. If all the judges were like him we would not the backups on court that we have. One of the highest understanding judge. I would not be surprised if he ends up as a judge on the U.S. Supreme Court.

Wonderful, reasonable, brilliant and a judge with heart. I was a guardianship attorney and had the privilege of appearing in front of Justice Leventhal on many matters. He is truly a gentleman and a scholar.

The intelligent and pugnacious Judge Leventhal has a refreshingly down-to-earth manner, but his prosecution biases are manifestly evident.

This judge is a brilliant jurist -- a real scholar who takes the time to get it right. His opinions are akin to Federal decisions in their thoroughness. He is a judge who wants to see justice served without fear or favor to either side.
