    • I do not recommend Gavin Lee.
    • I hired Gavin 6-12 months ago.
    • Gavin handled my Divorce / Separation matter.

    I hired Mr. Lee based on a recommendation by another attorney, this was a HUGE mistake. I cannot ever get a straight answer out of him. When working through a settlement, he suggested I settle with the child support the other attorney offered. He stated it was a good offer. What he failed to do was actually run the numbers through the child support worksheet which when all was said and done, I am paying almost $200.00 more a month than I should be. Not only that, but he did not file ALL the required paperwork needed and months later I am paying $500.00 dollars additional every month until the proper documentation is put through the courts. With that said, I call him an average of 3 times a week, his response is always "it will be filed this week". Yet NOTHING is ever filed! The amount of money you loose with this attorney is unbelievable. At this point, I could have hired one of Orlando's top attorneys as every week I continue to loose more money.

  2. Not worth your money at all!

    • I do not recommend Gavin Lee.
    • I hired Gavin 1-3 years ago.
    • Gavin handled my Family matter.

    I retained Mr. Lee last year for a fairly low rate. He started "working" on my case as soon as I gave him the 2nd part of the retainer and that was about it. He doesn't return calls, he cuts me off when I try to explain things to him, he says he will send this, email that and never follow through. 1 year later and I am still lost in this process. When I was going to drop him, he moved my case a bit and we got something done. Unfortunately, I went to the courthouse today and discovered my ex has filed over 10 different documents in court with copy to him and I have never even known about these documents, all were sent to Mr. Lee via copy. I even appear as a "no show" at a mediation date I was never told by Mr. Lee. It is unfortunate enough to go through a bitter divorce but to give your money to someone you think can help you and then only hurts your case is terrible. The only reason I wrote this review is because I would NEVER want another person to waste their precious money on an irresponsible lawyer like him. The only good thing is that with 40+ yrs of experience, he does know the people in the court: mediators, lawyers, judges, etc...but that's it.

    drug out the divorce, constantly wanted more money with nothing to show for it,impossible to reach by phone during normal hours, will not return calls, screwed up the papers and now it's costing us again for an attorney to straighten out the mess he made. biggest mistake I've ever made- hiring him.

    Dragged out a simple divorce for over a year and a half and never fulfilled his obligations to the court. Save your money and find a half way decent lawyer, this guy needs to retire.
