What our clients are saying

  • I was involved in a serious car accident and immediately hired Mr. Lavely to represent me. He was professional, thorough and personable. My case ended up going to trial and I couldn't ask for better counsel. Mr. Lavely and his paralegal Rita were phenomenal. They spent what seemed like every waking moment on my case to ensure a favorable verdict. In the end that's what happened and I couldn't be more pleased! I would recommend Mr. Lavely and his team to anyone in need of a top-notch attorney....

  • I retained Steve Lavely for as very serious criminal charge. Mr. Lavely was not judgmental, but assured me my situation was workable. He worked hard and I could tell in court both the prosecutor and the judge respected him. Everyone makes mistakes. Most are not as serious as mine. Thanks to Mr. Lavely I have my life back and am enjoying time with my loved ones. He receives my highest recommendation....

  • I highly recommend Steve Lavely for your Personal Injury Case. I was in two accidents one on my Motorcycle and neither were my fault. In both accidents I was injured. I felt extremely confident after speaking with Steve. Every time I called he answered my questions and put me at ease. His staff was on top of everything and that made the whole process painless. I hope you give him the opportunity to help you as he did me. I cannot express enough how much I appreciate and respect Steve and all he does....

Steven moved to Florida in 1970 and graduated from Tampa’s King High School and the University of South Florida, where he majored in Political Science.

From USF, Steve went on to law school at the University of Miami where he received the book award in Contracts (which is given to the student with the highest grade in the class). While still a student at Miami, Steve completed a unique internship with the Dade County State Attorney’s Office prosecuting in the Narcotics Division during the heyday of the South Florida drug trafficking crisis. He was one of only two, out of fifty-three, interns offered a job by Janet Reno, then State Attorney for the 11th Judicial Circuit.
