Maximizing Attention Maximizing Recovery
Five decades ago, soon after we founded our Florida personal injury and accident law practice, Babbitt & Johnson P.A. became the first attorneys in Palm Beach County 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 medical malpractice, auto accidents, products liability, drug litigation, commercial litigation 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 have grown, but one thing remains the same: our commitment to each client. Our partners handle every case themselves; we never farm out work to a less experienced lawyer. And we 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.
