He graduated from the University of Virginia with a law degree in 1908, and practiced law in Orlando, Florida, in his own firm, then as a partner in Davis & Giles, Giles, Hendrick & Robinson, and Giles & Robinson. Giles & Robinson, P.A. is the oldest law firm in Orlando, Florida. LeRoy B. Giles began practicing law in Orlando in 1908 at a time when the Central Florida economy was largely agricultural. In 1948, when James C. Robinson joined Mr. Giles, the economy was still dominated by citrus and it remained so until the early 1970s, when Walt Disney World opened.
