Founder of the West Palm Beach, Florida personal injury firm, Babbitt & Johnson, P.A., Theodore Babbitt, Esq. was named to the 2014 Florida Super Lawyer list for the Personal Injury Products-Plaintiff category. He has also been featured in the 2014 Super Lawyers Magazine in an article titled: “How Theodore Babbitt Turned His Life Around.”
The article glimpses the dynamic life of the trim 72 year old starting with his days as a wayward teen, to his graduating 5th in his class from law school to winning his first $1 million dollar Florida medical malpractice case at the age of 31 when people did not sue their doctors or take medical malpractice cases.
An over achiever with an A-type personality, Mr. Babbitt believes in hard work and thorough preparation for everything he does. His colleagues and former legal counsel say that he has “earned” every bit of his success and reputation and that he just doesn’t give up. His drive to take risky cases and determination to win them that has earned Mr. Babbitt admission into the Inner Circle of Advocates as possibly the youngest member ever elected.
The article highlights the story of Mr. Babbitt’s first experience in a courtroom – as a defendant in juvenile court. The judge gave him two choices: detention or the Marines. Mr. Babbitt chose the latter and served 6 months boot camp at Parris Island, South Carolina then six years in the reserves. He realized that he better turn his life around if he was to amount to anything other than grunt status. He knew education was his way out. His decision to go to school stunned his family, but their surprise soon turned to pride as he turned his life around.
From advocating for disadvantaged clients, and taking on major corporations and industry when others wouldn’t to volunteering for charities such as Pilots N Paws, Theodore Babbitt does not back away from insurmountable challenges. As the article concludes, you have to like his track record.
