Founder and solo legal practitioner at the Law Office of Toya Gavin, LLC.  I provide professional legal help to microbusinesses (businesses that do not require hundreds of thousands of dollars in startup capital and have a handful of employees).  

In addition to small business law, my legal background (I was a Municipal Prosecutor for the largest city in the state for 4 years) allows me to help with personal municipal law matters too.  I help my clients with things like business formations, contracts, trademarks, copyrights, traffic offenses, municipal violations, and minor criminal offenses.

Honest and Reliable
Toya has been great with directing me with my new business. Her knowledge base and assertive, yet gentle demeanor has prevented me from making some costly mistakes. I am able to do what I love and I can trust her to handle the details. She is an important part of our team.

Toya Gavin ESQ - Highly Recommended
I've used Toya Gavin for various legal issues varying from helping with small business formation to incidents in court where I was a defendant. Toya has always proven her expertise & skill, displayed with an uncanny prowess that is needed in the court of law. For example, I was unfairly prosecuted for violating a conditional discharge for a traffic matter. Toya first reassured me of my rights, sticking to the facts to comfort me in my position as the defendant. She then used her contacts to skillfully build a solid defense in efforts to submit a motion that would be favorable in my regard. Her quick thinking and attentiveness is the reason that I was able to prove my innocence, and her defense in my honor was nothing short of impeccable. I highly recommend Toya in any matter where a truly skilled professional is needed. You won't be disappointed, but more importantly, you will be fought for in a way that let's opponent know that you mean business.

Criminal defense Attorney | Apr 09
Relationship: Worked together on matter
"I have known Toya for years. I have worked against her as my adversary when she was a prosecutor and found her to always be fair, but as tough as she needed to be given the situation. Recently we have worked together defending co defendants on several matters. I respect her knowledge, work ethic and ability to always get the job done. I am always confident to refer clients to her becasue of her intelligence and ability, but more importantly I trust her. She possesses a unique combination of professionalism along with the ability to relate to all different types of people and earn their trust and respect. She is very personable and truly cares about all of her clients, but she is never afraid to think outside the box and go against the norm when it must be done. I strongly endorse this lawyer."
