Attorney Larry Avallone is a Florida Bar Board Certified Criminal Trial Expert.

Larry began his professional career in 1994, after being sworn in as a Volusia County Deputy Sheriff.

Larry spent 10 years serving the citizens of Volusia County as a Deputy Sheriff.  He worked as a patrol deputy, as a school resource officer, and as a courtroom bailiff.  Larry has investigated hundreds of crime scenes, made arrests, and had to testify in court as a law enforcement officer.

While working as a Deputy Sheriff, Larry obtained a Bachelor’s degree in Organizational Management from Warner University and a Master’s degree in Criminal Justice from the University of Central Florida.  During his assignment as a courtroom bailiff, Larry decided that the practice of law was his calling.  So, in 2003, Larry left the Sheriff’s Office to attend law school.  He graduated with his Juris Doctorate degree in 2006, and the same year returned to Volusia County and accepted a position as an Assistant State Attorney in the Office of the State Attorney of the 7th Judicial Circuit.

As a State Prosecutor, Larry’s first assignment was as a County Court trial attorney where he conducted 35 jury and non-jury trials, on such crimes as driving under the influence (DUI), domestic battery, domestic assault, theft, and other misdemeanors.

Later, Larry was assigned to the Circuit Court as a felony state prosecutor. In this time, Larry was assigned to the drug trafficking unit and then later to the career criminal unit.  During this felony assignment, Larry conducted many jury trials on various crimes, such as DUI manslaughter, grand theft, drug trafficking, aggravated battery, aggravated assault, and robbery with a firearm.

As a defense attorney, Larry is sought after to handle some of the most complex cases including murder cases where the State of Florida is seeking the Death Penalty.
