Orlando Family Law Attorney R. Gregory Colvin
I Can Help You — I've Been There, Too
From a young age, Gregory Colvin knew that he wanted to help people in
need but it was not always clear to him how he would do it. The answer
came in the form of inspiration delivered by his 9th grade Civics teacher, who taught him of an attorney’s role to assist
people in their time of need and beneficially influence society as a whole.
His life’s purpose was clear from then on: help people by upholding
the law and encouraging them to find positive solutions to the problems
we all have to face daily.
Mr. Colvin attended the University of Florida – a natural fit as
a lifelong fan of the Gators – and graduated with his Bachelors,
Masters, and Law Degrees in hand. When he came back to Orlando, the city
that raised him, he set right to work at putting his knowledge and skills
to good use. He was able to land a Partnership spot at one of the premier
personal injury firms in Florida. After seeing the true extent of his
own potential, he established R. Gregory Colvin, LLC, his own practice, in 1992.
He continued to use his personal injury experience to pursue compensation
for the wrongfully injured but another calling soon came his way: family
law. Physical pain can be debilitating but emotional wounds can be the
deepest – something he knew firsthand. Growing up, he was supported
by a single mother and he is a single father of a teenage daughter, Skylar.
When he realized he could use his legal prowess to help people manage
with the complications and painful moments attributed to divorce, he refocused
his efforts on family law.
No Problem is Impossible When We Work Together
Gregory prefers to be a sole practitioner, or an attorney who controls
all aspects of his practice. What this means for you, his client, is that
you will be afforded the unique opportunity to closely work with him directly
during every step of your divorce or family law dispute. When you need
to draft initial child custody agreements, it will be him, not a paralegal,
figuring out all the necessary details with you. When you have to take
your case to court, it will be Gregory there to defend your best interests
When you team up with Attorney Colvin, you will be treated like a close
friend in all aspects of your case. He knows that most of us cannot simply
reschedule plans or work shifts when necessary in order to have a legal
consultation. To address this commonplace issue, he permits free initial
consultations during the evening and the weekends. When you are faced
with a particularly alarming problem and need legal counsel
right away, as his client, you can reach him any hour of the day, any day of the week.
No matter how you approach a situation that requires litigation, there
is going to be some amount of stress, especially when it is centered on
a matter as private as your family life. By providing you with reliable,
honest, and compassionate legal service, Mr. Colvin can help remove as
much stress from the situation as possible without compromising what would
be best for you. As a Supreme Court Certified Mediator, he is well-equipped
and ready to handle even the most complicated cases for you as amicably
and efficiently as possible.
