Maximizing Attention Maximizing Recovery
We like to hit the ground running – with our cases, and with our own career. Four decades ago, soon after we founded our practice, Babbitt, Johnson, Osborne & Le Clainche became the first lawyers in Palm Beach Country to obtain a million-dollar verdict in a personal injury matter. That got our client the relief they deserved – and it got us on the map. In the years that followed, we've won numerous multimillion-dollar verdicts and settlements, in matters including products liability, drug litigation, commercial litigation, medical malpractice, and other mass tort and personal injury matters. We've obtained some of the largest recoveries ever seen in Florida – and helped our clients out of difficult times.
Since that first memorable win, our reputation and our track record has grown, but one thing remains the same: our commitment to each client. Our partners handle every case themselves; they never farm out work to a less experienced lawyer. And they take on cases only after careful consideration and investigation. That lets us devote the resources each case needs – and each victory demands. Other lawyers are quick to settle, because that's the easiest way for them to move on. We'll go all the way to trial, if necessary. Because that's the only way our client can move on. And that's what makes us a different sort of law firm. Your best interests get our best efforts.
Most Distinguished Trial Attorneys
Since opening our doors in 1965, we have built our reputation one case and one client at a time. And after four decades, there's a lot to show: recoveries – and personal service – that have won us the respect of those who come to us for help; honors from peers in the Bar and judges on the bench, who have bestowed upon our firm the highest possible rating for legal ability and ethics.
Our founding partner, Theodore Babbitt, is a 25-year member of the Inner Circle of Advocates, an invitation-only group limited to 100 top plaintiffs' lawyers in the United States. He has been named to the International Academy of Trial Lawyers, a group of just 500 of the world's preeminent trial lawyers, and is a member of The American College of Trial Lawyers, one of the field's most prestigious and selective associations. Mr. Babbitt is one of just a handful of lawyers who have been named to all three of these prominent organizations – and has been listed in The Best Lawyers in America every year since that publication's inception.
Our other three partners – Joe Johnson, Joe Osborne, and Stephan Le Clainche – have also received numerous accolades from legal and professional organizations, as well as their peers. Each has a long record of taking on complicated cases – and obtaining significant recoveries. In all, three of our partners are Board Certified in Civil Trial Law – a qualification given to just 2 percent of lawyers in Florida.
From commercial disputes to serious injuries, the lawyers of Babbitt, Johnson, Osborne & Le Clainche handle each case with the same expertise and integrity that have defined their career – and made their name. Contact us to learn how we can help you.
