Edward Liebling, Attorney At Law        (727) 725-3600

            Board Certified Criminal Trial Specialist  (Federal & State Courts)

Solutions tailored for the individual client

Understanding the client's needs and seeking to achieve outcomes consistent with that is my goal.  I work closely with my clients in finding solutions to their particular set of circumstances and am dedicated to exceeding expectations.


Advantage of Repeat Clients

I am proud that many of my clients have returned for counsel and representation as well as referring their friends and family. 

"A Man Who Represents himself has a fool for a lawyer:"  Proverb

Those words are the product of years of experience by seasoned litigators.  You would no more perform surgery on yourself or others without the proper training and experience required for a successful outcome.

A lawyer’s greatest asset as a professional is the capacity to provide dispassionate, objective advice to clients who may be emotionally overwrought and overwhelmed by a legal problem.

Having an experienced lawyer is essential to navigate the many complexities of the state and federal criminal justice system.


Diverse Experience

This office serves a wide range of clientele, and every client relationship is valued greatly. Each engagement benefits from the depth and breadth of my expertise.

About Board Certification:

Board certified attorneys possess special knowledge, skills and proficiency in their areas of practice.  Certification is the highest level of recognition by the Florida Bar concerning the competency and learning of attorneys.  Only board certified attorneys may use identifying terms such as "specialist", "specializing in", "expert", "expertise", and "Florida Bar Board Certified".

Board certification ensures that a criminal defense attorney has the highest level of experience in criminal trial law, has passed a rigorous written examination, has extensive trial and courtroom experience, and has received favorable evaluations from judges and other attorneys.

Less than one half of one percent of the over 100,000 members of the Florida Bar have earned the title Board Certified Criminal Trial Expert or Specialist.

I am committed to providing top notch legal services. I approach every client with a focus on integrity, advocacy, and understanding.


My office has a well deserved reputation of excellence in providing smart, sensible, and cost-effective legal representation.

High-quality legal work and personal

client service.
