Florida Attorneys

Leavengood, Dauval, Boyle & Meyer, P.A. ("LeavenLaw") is an AV® Preeminent™ rated law firm that has prided itself on serving the Tampa Bay area's legal needs for three generations.

Our Focus & Mission

Tracing its roots back to 1972, the attorneys at LeavenLaw are experienced in both litigation and transactional matters, both in State and Federal Court. Drawing upon a wide array of education and experience, the firm is dedicated to helping its clients in a wide variety of contexts, including consumer bankruptcy law, consumer law & creditor harassment, mortgage foreclosure and collection defense, as well as in criminal and DUI defense.

Our team is also ready to offer a high level of legal counsel in matters of business formation, family law, personal injury, real estate & title and wills, trusts & probate. At LeavenLaw, it is our mission to provide unparalleled client service to the Tampa Bay community by thoroughly understanding our clients' needs and providing compassionate, personalized, accurate and affordable representation.

Results-Oriented Practice

LeavenLaw stresses – and its clients rightfully expect – the best possible results under the circumstances. To that end, the Firm employs innovative, pragmatic strategies coupled with hard work and accountability. LeavenLaw recognizes that its success depends on close coordination with and the satisfaction of its clients.

Our attorneys regularly meet with clients to set objectives and base their commitment to service on developing an intimate knowledge of each client's needs and objectives. We seek long-term, partnering relationships with clients, striving to provide the best total solution to their specific needs. Our primary practice areas focus on bankruptcy and debtor rights & collection defense, as well as other consumer protection practices, including personal injury and criminal/DUI.


The attorneys at LeavenLaw have extensive trial and motion practice experience. With over 60 years of collective experience, over 100 trials litigated, thousands of motions and tens of thousands of clients, comfort in the courtroom comes naturally to its attorneys. Whether you are facing criminal charges and your liberties are in potential jeopardy, you have been served with a summons and are in jeopardy of losing your home, or are being harassed by creditors or debt collectors, the attorneys at LeavenLaw have the courtroom experience and resources to help you through this trying time. If you have any questions about your contested matter, or would like to learn more about our firm and the experience of its attorneys, please do not hesitate to look at our case and results page or call to speak to an attorney. At LeavenLaw, we want you to feel comfortable and confident in the choice you make for legal representation.


LeavenLaw also has extensive experience in helping its clients with transactional matters. From its experience in litigation and bankruptcy, we see debtors' assets subject to attack and in some cases seizure by either judgment creditors or bankruptcy trustees. Many times, and especially by the time a client comes to our office for assistance, it can be too late to avoid loss of assets. But given the experience in seeing debtors and businesses lose valuable assets, the attorneys at LeavenLaw are uniquely positioned to have learned from the mistakes of others to be able to counsel clients - before trouble happens - how to organize their affairs in an attempt to fortify their holdings and put them in a good and as lawful a position as possible to protect what they own. The intersection of these experiences -- litigation and transactions -- is invaluable knowledge to be able to impart on people and small businesses to succeed in this ever-changing, contested world.

LeavenLaw also has a real estate and title department to assist you with your real estate transactions. Whether you own a piece of property that you are trying to keep, whether by loan modification, foreclosure defense or bankruptcy, or need help mitigating loss and exiting the property via short sale, deed in lieu or a "friendly foreclosure," we are uniquely positioned to answer your questions and help you solve your real estate problem.

Starting with the End in Mind

We know your time and money is important to you. For this reason, LeavenLaw approaches each client and each matter as if it were its own. Trying to combine both effectiveness and efficiency, the attorney and support staff at LeavenLaw will take the time to properly evaluate your case and your goals before recommending a course of action, and then, after securing both your understanding and agreement, will create and implement a personalized plan to successfully get you to your goal and the least possible cost. This is possible as long as we start with the end in mind.

Please feel free to call us to schedule an initial free consultation or submit an inquiry on our website. We will look forward to meeting with you soon.
