Biography

Bradenton personal injury attorney Steven G. Lavely is a Florida Bar Board Certified Civil Trial Lawyer who is considered a specialist in civil trial law. Less than two-percent of Florida lawyers can claim this distinction. He is also one of the less than five-percent of Florida lawyers named a Florida Super Lawyer. Mr. Lavely is rated the highest possible rating on AVVO—a 10 out of 10—and is a proud member of the Top 100 Trial Lawyers in America.

“I am very proud of the honors and distinctions I have achieved, as they are either earned from advanced testing by independent agencies or peer review. The importance of my Florida Bar Board Certification is to let you know I cared enough to set myself apart as one of the very few lawyers on Florida’s west coast to achieve this distinction. With this distinction, you can be confident your lawyer can not only obtain a fair settlement, but if the insurance company refuses to be fair, your lawyer can prepare your case for trial, and has extensive training and experience doing so.”

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.
