Jeffrey and Leland Garvin named 2016 Super Lawyer and Rising Star

The Garvin Law Firm is pleased to announce that attorney Jeffrey R. Garvin has been named to the 2016 Florida Super Lawyers list, while Leland E. Garvin has been named as a 2016 Florida Rising Star.
Jeff Garvin has been named a Super Lawyer every year since 2006, representing no more than five percent of the lawyers in the state, as selected by the research team at Super Lawyers. No more than 2.5 percent of the lawyers in the state are selected annually as a Rising Star. Attorney Leland Garvin has been on that list for five years.
In practice since 1973, Jeff Garvin is a Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer who has litigated catastrophic injury and death cases throughout the country for more than 30 years. He has tried cases before juries including aviation, automobile and boat accidents; medical and legal malpractice; and defective products. He has achieved multiple verdicts in excess of $1 million, and has been a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum since 2004. For the third time, he was selected by his peers as Fort Myers “Lawyer of the Year” for 2016 in the practice area of Personal Injury Litigation – Plaintiffs by The Best Lawyers in America©.
Leland Garvin began his legal career in 2006 as a prosecutor, gaining invaluable trial experience representing the State of Florida in countless jury trials at both the misdemeanor and felony levels. He then started his own firm handling both criminal defense and injury cases. He and his father Jeff later decided to combine their two practices to better serve the needs of their clients, with an exclusive focus on many types of personal injury cases. In 2009, Leland was selected as “one of the best up and coming attorneys” in the state of Florida by Florida Trend Magazine. He 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.
Jeff Garvin said, “Clients turn to the Garvin Law Firm following a serious injury or the loss of a loved one. It’s gratifying to be recognized by Super Lawyers, especially as a father and son team, but the awards we garner on behalf of our clients are the reason we advocate so passionately on behalf of each and every one.”
Leland Garvin said, “My father and I combine experience, skill and creativity to produce the best outcomes possible for our clients. We appreciate the honors, but more so the opportunity to stand up to insurance companies, corporations and governments on our clients’ behalf.”
