When he was ten years old, Mr. Gavin’s parents told him that sometimes veterinarians had to put animals to sleep. It was at that point that he decided to become a lawyer instead of a vet. He still cares deeply for animals, and is a practicing vegetarian.
Mr. Gavin’s professional goal is never to forget that he represents people, not their lawsuits. He wants his clients to be able to live their lives without the constant worry and anxiety that often accompany legal problems. In short, he wants to fight on his clients’ behalf so they can focus on their other priorities.
