Alumni Profile: Todd Levine
“It is important to be open-minded and make contacts in the field. When I joined Kluger, Peretz, Kaplan and Berlin right out of law school it was a relatively small firm, and I was uncertain of the type of law I wanted to practice. I immediately clicked with my colleagues and enjoyed our practice so much that today I am proud to be a member of what has grown to be a uniquely successful, high quality law firm. I also take pride in the fact that I am a graduate of the best law school in the state, and I work to perpetuate the school’s excellent reputation.”

Levine (UF JD 91), a partner in Kluger, Peretz, Kaplan & Berlin, P.L. in Miami, practices in the Litigation and Dispute Resolution Department and specializes in complex commercial litigation — particularly brokerage, real estate, contractual and business entity disputes — and construction litigation.
