His litigation experience includes the handling and resolution of more than 200 cases for a Fortune 100 company. While attending law school, Gavin volunteered in the Administrative Law clinic, where he successfully petitioned the Washington State Health Care Authority for rule making regarding sexual reassignment surgery on behalf of a transgender client, the Arts Law clinic, where he provided weekly advice to artists, poets, and filmmakers related to their intellectual property, and gained litigation experience by handling depositions and arbitrations while working as a Rule 9 intern. Gavin was also a law clerk to Professors Ron Clark and Marilyn Berger in support of the the third edition to their textbook, Pre-trial Advocacy: Planning, Analysis, and Strategy.

Prior to attending law school, Gavin was a database administrator for a local contract research organization. His work included the seminal PrEP study, which identified the efficacy of pre-exposure prophylaxis in reducing HIV seroconversion rates in HIV discordant couples.
