Leavengood, Dauval & Boyle, P.A. traces its roots back to 1972 in St. Petersburg, Florida to the late Honorable Charles Richard Leavengood. The Law Offices of C. Richard Leavengood focused on Real Estate Law, specifically Eminent Domain. For almost a decade, "Dick" built a small but reputable practice serving Pinellas County's residents.

After a brief stint in private practice, Dick ran for Circuit Court Judge of the Sixth Circuit of Florida. After being elected, Judge Leavengood served on the bench for almost twenty years, eventually serving as its chief judge for more than a decade. After being appointed to the Supreme Court as an interim Justice, Judge Leavengood was eventually defeated by Justice Boyd in his campaign efforts for re-election to the State's Highest Court.

In June of 1978, after graduating from the University of Florida College of Law, Judge Leavengood's son, Richard Timothy Leavengood, returned home to join his father in the practice of law. Leavengood & Leavengood, as the firm was then known, re-focused its efforts on serving the Tampa Bay community's legal needs. For the next several years, this father and son firm practiced in the areas of Real Estate, Wills, Trusts, Probate, Estate Planning and Wealth Management. In 1980, Richard followed his father's lead and decided to run for County Judge. At 27 years of age, however, Richard was the inexperienced underdog, finishing third out of five candidates.

Returning to the practice of law, Richard decided to expand Leavengood & Leavengood's practice areas by familiarizing himself with an area of law new to the practice. . . an area that would eventually become the firm's primary focus to this day: Consumer Bankruptcy Law. Leavengood & Leavengood continued to serve the community until Dick passed away in 1993.

In May 1995, Richard T. Leavengood's son, Ian Richard Leavengood, graduated from the University of Florida's Fisher School with his Bachelors and Masters degrees in Accounting. After two years working as an internal business consultant for The Procter & Gamble Distributing Company, Ian returned to the University of Florida to earn his law degree. During his second stint at UF, Ian served as a Judicial Extern to The Honorable Justice Ben F. Overton of the Supreme Court of State of Florida. After graduating from the Levin College of Law in May of 2000, Ian took a job for Deloitte & Touche, practicing the federal taxation of Mergers & Acquisitions in New York City. For three years, Ian utilized both his law and accounting degrees serving one of Wall Street's financial pioneers and one of Deloitte's most influential and affluent clients - the leveraged buy-out firm Kohlberg, Kravis & Roberts.

After four years working in New York City, Ian returned home to St. Petersburg to join his father in the practice of law. Charged with growing the practice, Ian began to expand the firm's personnel, reach and areas of practice. In 2004, Ian brought Christopher Charles Nash over from Akerman Senterfitt, creating the foundation for the Leavengood & Nash firm as it exists today. Chris's eight-plus years of commercial litigation and estate planning experience provided the intellectual capital necessary to better serve the new firm's clientele.

Together, Richard, Ian and Chris re-branded the newly formed firm and expanded the firm's legal reach to include Commercial Litigation, Creditor Rights & Collection Law, Family Law & Divorce, Business Formation, Wills, Trusts, Probate & Estate Planning and Personal Injury & Accident Litigation.

About Client Rating
About Peer Rating

Welcome to Martindale-Hubbell® Client Review, a new ratings service that allows you to view and provide feedback on a lawyer or law firm on service and relationship qualities such as Communication Ability, Responsiveness, Quality of Service, and Value for Money.

Determining a Rating

The Client Review Rating is determined through aggregation of validated responses. This compilation of Client Reviews translates to a numerical rating and associate descriptive term on a scale of 1 -5. 1 being lowest as "Rated" and 5 being highest as "Preeminent".

  • 4.5-5.0 Preeminent
  • 3.0-4.4 Distinguished
  • 1-2.9 Rated

Martindale-Hubbell uses a third-party resource to validate that the respondent is a living person, but cannot confirm the lawyer/client relationship, which in many cases is confidential. Clients must affirm that they are a client of the lawyer or firm identified for review at the time of the completed Client Review.

The Reviewers

Those who complete Client Reviews are clients of law firms who hired a lawyer within the last year, whose matter is not pending, and want to share their experience of that lawyer or law firm with other potential clients. Reviewers can be of any type from in-house counsel, corporate executives, small business owners to private individuals, and even sometimes another lawyer in a different jurisdiction.

Anonymity

Client Reviews are anonymous and reviewers' identities are not published; however a summary of basic demographics will be part of the display of responses.

Why do we collect demographics as part of the review?

Those who are researching a lawyer or law firm like to see that there are other clients who might be "like them". This is valuable information contributing to the decision-making process of hiring a lawyer.

Martindale-Hubbell's role

Martindale-Hubbell facilitates the process of Client Review by gathering responses, validating them and aggregating results for display online. The content of the responses are entirely from reviewers, the clients of the firm or lawyer.

It is important to note that Martindale-Hubbell does not undertake to develop Client Reviews for all firms and lawyers. Therefore, the fact that a firm or lawyer has not been reviewed should not be construed unfavorably. Prior results do not guarantee a similar outcome and Martindale-Hubbell accepts no responsibility for the content or accuracy of any review over which Martindale-Hubbell exercises no editorial review or control.
