When you are facing hard or difficult times and need to hire an attorney, look for one who is knowledgeable, experienced and compassionate. Vanessa Bevington of Carman and Bevington, P.A. is just such an attorney.

Bevington, who specializes in family law, brings a level of compassion to each case and client she represents. Bevington said, “I counsel clients to keep a level of civility between them. After all, you did marry one another and had children together. This will make the caseĀ  go smoothly and more quickly.”

Bevington added, “It is always best to hire an attorney who specializes in the area of the dispute, is the best general advice I can give. If you try and represent yourself, you are held to the same standard.” Bevington said, “I like being able to help people when they are at a wit’s end.”

Bevington grew up in Toledo, Ohio. She lived for a number of years in the south of France and actually has dual citizenship. She is fluent in French, and has used this as a reason to travel to Haiti to work at the Eden Garden Orphanage in Montrouis, Haiti. Bevington said, “This experience changed my perspective on life. Everything that we take for granted here, such as running, drinkable water, is a necessity in Haiti.” While in Haiti, Bevington helped with several projects. The orphanage, which is located one hour from Port au Prince, now has a new septic system, kitchen and running water. Bevington intends to return to Haiti at some point in the future.

Bevington received her undergraduate degree from The Ohio State University (major in Criminology and minors in French and Spanish) in 2003. She received her Juris Doctorate from Thomas M. Cooley Law School in 2006. She is member of the Florida Bar Association, the Hillsborough County Bar Association and the Brandon Bar Association. She is admitted to practice in the United States District Court, Middle District of Florida.

Carman and Bevington’s principal office is located at 2234 Lithia Pinecrest Rd. in Brandon. For more information, please visit or call 654-3444.
