Attorney Profile

Attorney Jeffrey R. Garvin founded Garvin Law Firm nearly 10 years ago after having spent more than 30 years as a partner in a highly respected Fort Myers firm. Over the course of his career, Mr. Garvin has earned a reputation as one of South Florida's leading personal injury and wrongful death attorneys. This excellent reputation is one also enjoyed by his firm, which has offices in Fort Myers, Naples and Key West.

Mr. Garvin began his legal career in 1973 after earning his law degree from University of Florida Levin College of Law and his admission to The Florida Bar. He has focused the majority of his career on protecting the rights of Florida's victims of negligence by assisting injured victims and families as they pursue compensation for their injuries or losses.

As a result of Mr. Garvin's many successes, he has earned a number of honors from the legal community. He has a "Superb" rating from Avvo, and he has received an AV-Preeminent peer-review rating* from Martindale-Hubbell. In addition, he is a member of the Million Dollar Advocates Forum, which is a prestigious organization that limits membership to those attorneys who have secured a minimum of $1 million for a client in a verdict or settlement.

The legal community does not only recognize Mr. Garvin's many successes but also his leadership ability. He has served on the board of directors of a number of organizations, including the American Board of Trial Advocates and the Florida Justice Association. In addition, he is a past president of the Florida Chapters of the American Board of Trial Advocates, and he has served as chair of multiple committees and commissions.
