Givens Givens Sparks is pleased to announce that three of our firm’s Attorneys – Stann Givens, Chris Givens, and Ellen Ostman – have been selected for inclusion in the latest edition of The Best Lawyers in America©.
One of the legal profession’s most sought-after accolades, inclusion in Best Lawyers speaks volumes about the reputation attorneys have cultivated throughout their years in practice, and the record of success they’ve secured on behalf of clients.
Attorneys Chris Givens and Ellen Ostman, who’ve earned their first recognition in The Best Lawyers in America, join Stann Givens in his 21st year of inclusion (he’s been recognized by Best Lawyers every year since 1999).
- Stann W. Givens – Stann Givens is a Board Certified Family Law Attorney who’s cultivated a reputation as one of Tampa’s top practitioners of matrimonial law. Over more than 40 years in practice, Givens has earned widespread recognition, including Best Lawyers’ “Lawyer of the Year” in Tampa Family Law (2016), and selection to Florida Super Lawyers every year since 2006.
- Chris M. Givens – Firm Partner Chris Givens was named to The Best Lawyers in America for the first time in his career. The distinction follows the former Hillsborough County prosecutor’s seven consecutive years of inclusion in the Florida Super Lawyers list of Rising Stars (2013-2019), which is reserved for top up-and-comers. Chris has secured significant results for clients in family law and personal injury cases, has published articles on matrimonial law, and has been named among the "Nation's Top One Percent" by the National Association of Distinguished Counsel (2015).
- Ellen D. Ostman – Ellen Ostman is a Board Certified Family and Marital Specialist by the Florida Bar, who has leveraged more than 40 years of experience and expertise to help thousands of clients resolve complex family law cases. In addition to her recognition by Best Lawyers, Ellen has been named to Florida Super Lawyers seven times, and the American Institute of Family Law Attorneys’ list of “10 Best Attorneys” in 2019. She has co-authored legal works, has served as a lecturer and former Child Support Hearing Officer, and has worked high-profile, controversial cases which have been dramatized for television.
All three attorneys named to the 2020 edition of The Best Lawyers in America received the highest point totals during the Best Lawyers selection process – a multi-phase process based on peer review, feedback analysis, and editorial staff research. Their selections are a testament to their tireless efforts protecting clients’ rights, and a large part of our continued success at GGS.
