    Verdicts and Settlements

    Leighton Panoff Law aggressively represents its clients. Mr. Leighton and the firm has obtained some of the highest verdicts and settlements in Florida, including the largest verdict in Seminole County history, $24.1 million (Orlando Business Journal, 6/20/05), and a $24.3 million wrongful death verdict in Orange County in 2011. His trial in Jeffery v. Publix Super Markets, a landmark inadequate security case, was the subject of an entire chapter in the book, Persuasive Jury Communication: Case Studies from Successful Trials, Chapter 10 (Shepard’s/McGraw-Hill 1995). Mr. Leighton and Eric Halsey recently obtained a $7.35 million verdict on behalf of the victim of a trucking crash in Osceola County.

    Leighton’s recent recoveries of $11.25 million, $9 million, $8 million (arbitration award), $5.5 million, $5 million, $4.3 million, $3.75 million and $3.65 million have brought fair compensation and financial security to our clients.

    Through his 29 years of aggressive trial practice, the results obtained by Mr. Leighton have become recognized as among the most significant in Florida and throughout the United States. He is often retained by attorneys in other states to litigate and try complex civil cases.  His recoveries of $4.3 million in Illinois, $1 million in Texas, $3 million in Indiana, $1.1 million in Wisconsin and $250,000 in North Carolina are examples of the geographic and trial success Mr. Leighton and the lawyers at Leighton Panoff Law, P.A. have achieved.

    The representative verdicts and settlements listed on this web site are just some of the many cases we have handled and continue to handle. We encourage you to ask us about the kinds of results we have obtained for clients like you, and how the facts of each case make all cases unique.

    Disclaimer:The information about past verdicts and settlements of the firm’s cases are based on the unique facts of each case.
