The Trabin Law Firm
Eric J. Trabin grew up in West Palm Beach. After graduating from Suncoast Community High School in the International Baccalaureate program, he was accepted to the Honors Program at the University of Florida. At UF he received his undergraduate degree with a major in Criminology and a minor in Philosophy in 2003. He remained there to receive his JD in 2006. He currently practices Criminal Defense and Family Law in Central Florida with an office in Maitland.
Mr. Trabin has long had a passion for service. While in law school, he worked in a clinic providing family law services for the underprivileged, fighting for those who could not fight for themselves. He maintains that the legal profession gives voice to those who do not want to be, or cannot be, their own voice. He feels that at its heart, each case is about real people. Mr. Trabin considers the practice of law to be a calling and genuinely enjoys his work.
After law school, Mr. Trabin moved to the Orlando area. He worked as an Assistant State Attorney for the Ninth Judicial Circuit for four years, giving him invaluable experience in a variety of cases, including DUI, domestic violence, murder trials, death penalty and more. In 2011 he founded The Trabin Law Firm where he now represents clients in family and criminal defense cases.
Among his awards, Mr. Trabin has been recognized by the American Institute of DUI Attorneys as one of “Florida’s Ten Best” for 2016-17. He is AV rated by Martindale-Hubbell Bar Register of Preeminent Lawyers, the highest rating bestowed for ethics and ability. In Super Lawyer’s magazine, which recognizes and rates lawyers through peer recognition and professional achievement, he has been listed as a “Rising Star” for the past two years. Mr. Trabin is rated a “Top Attorney” on Avvo.com, an online legal services marketplace, having received a perfect rating of 10 out of 10; he is considered “Superb.”
Community involvement occupies a part of his life and he is a member of the Jewish Community Relations Council as a liaison to the Seminole County School Board, helping to coordinate the organizing of events that they sponsor.
Mr. Trabin is married with two children, ages two and four, lives in Oviedo, and practices the martial art of Wah Lum Kung Fu, which he feels provides mental focus and reiterates the value of hard work. “Kung Fu teaches the art of hard work, discipline, and perseverance,” he says. “I draw upon its lessons in my legal practice on a regular basis.” He likens it to the profession of law in the sense that hard work is required to accomplish greatness and to never give up.
