About Us

In January of 1987, attorneys Ronald W. Brooks and Dean R. LeBoeuf formed the law firm of Brooks & LeBoeuf. In December of 1995, the firm added Rhonda Bennett as a partner. Ms. Bennett had been with the law firm as an associate since graduating law school in 1990. Then, in December of 1997, the firm expanded again by adding Matthew K. Foster as a partner. Mr. Foster had also been with the firm as an associate since graduating law school. Scott Gwartney, who joined the firm in April of 2002, became a named partner in January of 2003. John Leace joined our firm in 2012 as a partner. Carolyn LeBoeuf has an of-counsel relationship with the firm. We now have attorneys licensed to practice law in Florida, Georgia, Tennessee and Texas.

Our attorneys have well over 100 years of combined legal experience and this firm has been serving the citizens of this community for over 33 years. Most of our lawyers grew up in this community or they have been here so long that they call this home and wouldn’t want to live anywhere else. Put simply, we are your neighbors and friends. We believe in what we do and we genuinely care about our clients and their pursuit of justice. To provide our clients with the best possible legal services, we work in teams. Our civil team handles cases involving almost all types of serious personal injury and wrongful death matters including motor vehicle collisions, medical malpractice, nursing home resident claims, negligent security claims and defective product injuries. Our criminal defense team represents individuals charged with a wide variety of crimes in Leon, Wakulla, Gadsden, Franklin and Jefferson counties. We also assist our clients with estate planning issues including Wills & Trusts. When a dispute arises concerning a Will, Trust or inheritance claim, our litigation team has extensive experience in handling these matters. We now also assist clients with serious employment related claims including all type of discrimination, wrongful termination, FMLA claims, sexual harassment, retaliation and whistleblower claims.

All of our partners have been recognized as preeminent lawyers and have attained a rating of “AV”, which is the highest possible rating available through Martindale-Hubbell, a company which is internationally recognized as the most authoritative reference in rating the quality, competence and professionalism of attorneys throughout the world.
