About Me

Curt Levine was born in West Hartford, Connecticut, received a B.A. Degree in History from Northeastern University, Boston, (1970) and a Juris Doctorate from Suffolk University in Boston (1973). As a law student, he was a volunteer for Ralph Nader's Public Interest Research Group, and was a Prosecutor for the City of Lynn, Mass. He moved to Florida after receiving his law degree and was named an Assistant Public Defender in Palm Beach County in 1973. He was called to active duty with the U.S. Army Field Artillery Corps in 1975 and served as a Battery Commander at Corps Headquarters in Ft. Sill, Oklahoma at the moment U.S. troops were evacuating Vietnam on helicopters from the grounds of the U.S. Embassy in Saigon. In July, 1975, he returned to the Palm Beach County Public Defenders Office and was named Chief of the Capital Crimes Division. In December, 1976, he joined the 115-attorney multistate law firm of Baskin & Sears, and practiced civil and criminal litigation throughout Florida. In 1989, he left private law practice and became national General Counsel for Wellesley Inns in Palm Beach, Florida. After Wellesley suspended new development in 1990, he returned to private law practice. In 1998, he was elected State Representative for District 89, a district covering the western areas of Boca Raton and Delray Beach. In 2000, then-Vice President Al Gore named him co-Chair of the Florida Gore for President Campaign. Levine also faced a four-way Primary contest in his own re-election campaign in 2000 and ultimately was declared to have lost a run-off in October, 2000 by 82 votes. The Palm Beach County Supervisor of Elections refused to conduct a recount and Levine decided to withdraw an election contest suit. After returning to private law practice, Levine joined the Legal Committee of the Florida Sierra Club. In 2004, he was named Political Chairman of the Florida Sierra Club and held that post until 2007. In 2005, Levine was named an Assistant Public Defender in Florida's Ninth Judicial Circuit, and was assigned the major criminal defense cases in the Osceola County Courthouse until 2007, when he returned to private law practice in Orlando. In 2006, he was named Orange County Co-chair of the Jim Davis for Governor Campaign. In 2008, Levine was named an attorney for the Democratic National Committee in its Voter Protection Team. In 2011, Levine became a political talk radio host for WEUS Radio, 810 AM, broadcasting on 10,000 watts throughout central Florida, hosting "Florida Insider with Curt Levine". The radio show airs Saturdays at 1 p.m. EDT and can be heard over the web at www.Big810AM.com . Levine has filed as a candidate for the Florida Senate in the 2012 elections.
