After 36 years in the practice of law, I restructured my law firm in November, 2009 and renamed it the Givens Law Group. With more than eighty years of combined trial experience and four former state prosecutors, the firm prides itself in its ability to obtain favorable settlements on behalf of our clients and in its trial skills which are set in motion should the case not settle.
I have represented captains of industry and professional athletes, including baseball legend Pete Rose.
We offer free telephone consultations.
We do offer flat fee divorce services.
The hourly rates vary within the firm.
Monday through Friday
8:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m.
For emergency after hours, please call (813) 251-6700.
I chose to practice family law so that I could make a difference to people struggling with the difficulties of dissolving relationships and the risks of losing contact with their children and losing their assets.
I encourage clients to educate themselves on legal issues and have substantial educational materials on various family law topics on the firm's websites at:
Givens Givens Sparks, PLLC is always willing to review documents prepared by clients.
Givens Givens Sparks,PLLC will coach clients who wish to represent themselves.
Beginning as a state prosecutor, nearly all of my private practice work has been in the family law arena.
Decades of life experience and long term involvement in the community have helped make me a better lawyer.
I like to think that my strength lies in my ability to reach favorable settlements for my clients, yet I have the trial experience to fight in court if that becomes necessary.Personal interests:
My major interest is in the welfare of children. I have worked as a coach and served on the board of directors for numerous sports programs for young adults and youths and have been involved with the Boys and Girls Club of Tampa.
