Legal eagles don’t just fly – sometimes they soar.
Such is the case with a trio of practicing attorneys at Leopold Law, P.A., in Palm Beach Gardens, who were recently recognized in the 2012 South Florida Legal Guide.
Theodore J. Leopold, Diana L. Martin and Kenneth J. Sobel, consumer justice attorneys, were each bestowed distinction by being nominated by fellow attorneys practicing in Palm Beach, Broward and Miami-Dade counties. The guide lists Leopold and Sobel as “Top Lawyers” while Martin was named a “Top Up & Comer.”
“The highest compliment is to be acknowledged by your peers, which is what makes this recognition so gratifying,” said Ted Leopold, managing partner at the firm.
According to the guide’s methodology, being named a “Top Attorney” is to be on “a definitive list of lawyer’s lawyers.” Voting attorneys are asked to choose a nominee who is well regarded in the legal profession, has been in long-term practice and has “a distinguished record of achievement.”
The “Top Attorneys” nominate the “Top Up & Comers.” They are asked to consider younger attorneys who have been in practice at least 10 years and are “already making their mark on the legal profession.”
Leopold’s concentration is in consumer justice litigation with a niche in managed care. He was nominated by the Public Justice Foundation for “Trial Lawyer of the Year” for litigation in the managed-care arena. He also specializes in class-action litigation, products liability and catastrophic injury. The Wall Street Journal recognized him as a “Top Florida Attorney.”
Sobel focuses on catastrophic injury. With more than 26 years in the business, he is AV rated from Martindale-Hubbell. He was named one of 2012 Best Lawyers in America by U.S. News & World Report.
Martin takes care of the firm’s appeals. She is integral in providing litigation support in a variety of areas.
“Our commitment to justice is reflected by our dedication to our clients, as well as our respect for the legal community,” said Leopold. “We are proud to be a part of this elite group of South Florida Professionals.”
