The 2014 Super Lawyers Magazine article titled: “How Theodore Babbitt Turned His Life Around” provides a window into the dynamic early career of Ted Babbitt, founder of Babbitt & Johnson P.A. From juvenile delinquent on a path to nowhere to becoming one of the top 100 Plaintiff Attorneys in the U.S., the article captures Ted Babbitt’s unique route to success driven by his competitive nature and appetite to take on any challenge.
For a man whose junior college counselor told him he would not amount to much, Ted’s academic accomplishments are impressive. He finished junior college early and went on to major in psychology at the University of Florida. He began law school at age 23 and graduated fifth in his class.
From that momentum, Ted began his professional career and ended up with equally remarkable results.
- After passing the state bar in 1965, Babbitt won his first $1 million Palm Beach County medical malpractice case when he was only 31 and was featured on the cover of Time Magazine.
- In 1975 he was invited to the exclusive Inner Circle of Advocates, as perhaps the youngest member ever elected to the group.
His determination is the reason that at 72, Ted Babbitt is going stronger than ever both professionally and personally. And with so many varied skills and interests, he shows no signs of slowing down. He takes care of himself through his very active lifestyle and still remains a tough advocate for disadvantaged clients taking on major corporations and industries on their behalf.
