Leland Eric Garvin, a Florida native and second generation trial attorney, began his legal career working as a Prosecutor. While at the State Attorney’s office, he gained invaluable trial experience representing the State of Florida in countless jury trials at both the misdemeanor and felony levels.

 

Prior to taking the job with the State, and throughout law school; Mr. Garvin worked for one of the larger personal injury law firms in South Florida. When he wasn’t handling injury and auto accident cases; he made time for the Moot Court Honor Society. It was during his time with Moot Court that he developed a love for the courtroom and passionate advocacy.

 

After leaving his job as a prosecutor, Mr. Garvin started his own firm handling both criminal defense and injury cases. More recently he and his father Jeff decided to combine their two practices to better serve the needs of their clients.

 

In 2009, Leland was selected as “one of the best up and coming attorneys” in the state of Florida by Florida Trend Magazine and listed in the 2009 edition of Strathmore’s Who’s Who.

 

In 2010, Mr. Garvin was named by Florida Super Lawyers magazine as one of the Top Young Lawyers in Florida. Only 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected by Super Lawyers for this list.

 

Leland was also selected as one of the top 40 lawyers under the age of 40 in Florida by The National Trial Lawyers Association in 2012.

He serves on the Board of Directors of the Young Lawyers Section of the Florida Justice Association in addition to being a member of the PULSE Committee for the American Heart Association.

 

Leland is a member of American Association for Justice, the Florida Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, Broward County Justice Association, Broward, and Lee County Bar Association. He concentrates his practice in the areas of personal injury, wrongful death and criminal defense litigation.

 

He is admitted to the Florida Bar, the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Florida and the Middle District of Florida.

a lawyer that listens.....
I had many choices to choose from, as you may know when your name becomes part of the legal system 100 plus attorneys try to take on your case. the reason I chose Mr Garvin was due to the fact he came across as being completely genuine and sincere in applying his skills to help my personal legal situation. I liked his honesty and sincereity. at first i was apprehensive in hiring him because he looks young. Nope ! made a wise chose Mr. Garvin is informed and knowlegeable of the law.

A Lawyer who cares...
I had phone interviewed with a few lawyer before making my pick, all which seemed , harsh and cold, they all treated me with doubt as if i were a criminal. When i interviewed with Leland Garvin, he seemed compassionate, caring and honest. He really took time out to listen.Is good at what he does! His services were very reasonable for the service you get..

Mr. Garvin handled my case very well. I was injured in a car accident and had a hefty amount of hospital bills and bill collectors on me but Leland took care of everything. It eased my mind knowing he was there to inform me and walk me through the whole process

Very Professional Lawyer
Leland is a very professional and knowlegable lawyer. He provides very honest and good advice when reviewing the case. I choose him because he was clear and concise in telling me how the case could be developed. He resolved my case in a very sucessfull way. I was totaly glad with his results.

Best Attorney Ever!
Mr. Garvin represented my in a suit that I thought my innocence would never be found by jurors just because my defense although the truth, was far-fetched. I have never seen or heard of an attorney who cares as much about his/her clients and that works as hard to represent his client the best possible way he can as Leland does.

very good
Mr. Garvin was really prepared and me the whole process really easy for me. He was a good guy i would recomend him again.
