Leesfield Leighton & Partners has developed an international and statewide reputation as one of the leading trial law firms in the United States. Named to the "Best Law Firms in South Florida" in 2001 and 2002, Leesfield Leighton & Partners lawyers handle select, substantial civil cases in all courts. Based in Miami and founded in 1976, the firm handles and tries cases throughout the United States and its territories, and since 1987 has maintained an office in the southernmost city of Key West. This year begins our affiliation in Europe through IPIN (International Personal Injury Network).
The attorneys and staff handle complex catastrophic personal injury, wrongful death, toxic tort and class action litigation, business disputes and appeals. The staff includes law clerks, paralegals, investigators, and medical researchers. The firm prides itself on a practice of select and diverse complex litigation, and has won national recognition by maximizing damage awards for the most serious injury and death cases.
The firm's main office is located in Miami, which has become a gateway to Latin America and Europe, as well as a national and international financial center. The Miami office compound consists of several buildings. The Miami office received the award for outstanding renovation and design by the Florida Bar, and was featured on the cover of the Florida Bar Journal. In 1987 the firm opened a historic office with another award-winning design in Key West, which serves as support for the main office, and is of particular assistance in servicing our clients in the Florida Keys.
