Fan Li joined Kelley | Uustal after working for five years as an assistant public defender in Miami-Dade, where he tried more than 60 jury and bench trials ranging from misdemeanors to attempted murder. In addition to winning the vast majority of his jury trials, Fan has written appeals and spearheaded several impact litigation projects, including a constitutional challenge of the police’s use of marijuana odor as the sole basis for the arrest and search of Floridians.


Since entering civil practice, Fan has won an issue of first impression in the Nevada Supreme Court against the tobacco industry and was a member of the trial team that secured an $82.6 million verdict for international rap star Flo Rida. He is currently litigating against several Fortune 500 companies in 5 states, and recently commenced a federal declaratory judgment action on a novel issue of Florida law.


Passionate about racial and criminal justice, Fan continues to work on pro bono cases close to his heart and is always looking to represent victims of civil rights violations. 


Fan has lived in half a dozen cities in China, Canada, and the US and spent a part of his life backpacking before settling down in Florida with his wife. He enjoys the outdoors and is always looking to learn something new.
