Brooke Victoria Elvington

About me

My background is in both State and Federal criminal defense.   I have handled cases ranging from misdemeanor offenses to first-degree murder and terrorism.  I now dedicate my practice to criminal appeals & post-conviction.  In addition to my own cases, I regularly consult with attorneys throughout the State of Florida.  In recognizing that this area of law involves incredibly difficult challenges for clients, I offer my skill, experience, compassion and honesty.  Please feel free to read more about my background on my criminal appeals website,  


When I am not working, I enjoy spending time with my husband and children.  We travel regularly and have a particular love for all things Italy!

  • Michael Alexander Misa

    Brooke is very knowledgeable in the area of criminal defense and appeals. Brooke helped me work with my client on a difficult 3.850 which was truly not in his best interest. It became clear that Brooke put the clients ultimate interest first, and the case was resolved without any further liability to the client. I endorse this lawyer.
