Firm Summary

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.

After law school, Mr. Lavely worked for two years as an Assistant State Attorney in Bradenton and Sarasota, and in June of 1986, he opened the Law Office of Steven G. Lavely. Over the past 30 years, he has handled thousands of cases, both civil and criminal, in Florida state and federal courts as a personal injury lawyer and criminal defense attorney. He has been lead trial counsel for people with catastrophic injuries, as well as people charged with crimes that could have been punished by death.

Mr. Lavely is married and has three children, as well as several dogs and cats. (When you come to his office, you will notice the family setting.) His hobbies all revolve around sports, and he is an avid golfer with a single-digit handicap.
