Leighton Chosen Again For Best Lawyers in America

August 2010: John Elliott Leighton, managing partner of Leighton Law, P.A. was recently selected by his peers for inclusion in The Best Lawyers in America® 2011 in the field of Personal Injury Litigation, for the fourth consecutive year (Copyright 2010 by Woodward/White, Inc., of Aiken, S.C.).

Mr. Leighton is a Florida Bar board certified civil trial lawyer with 25 years of experience in litigating and trying complex and catastrophic cases in all state and federal courts, including: personal injury and wrongful death; medical malpractice; violent crime/negligent premises security; trucking and motor vehicle crash; nursing home neglect; product liability; aviation disaster; cruise ship and maritime; commercial litigation; and other civil cases. His law firm represents individuals who have been seriously injured or have lost loved ones due to the negligence of others.

Mr. Leighton has been called upon to provide his trial skills to represent plaintiffs throughout the country, including New York, Texas, Indiana, Wisconsin, Georgia, Illinois and North Carolina. He is the author of “Litigating Premises Security Cases,” a two-volume book published by Thomson-West, which provides comprehensive information on investigating, preparing and trying inadequate security cases and representing crime victims. He is a frequent lecturer at national legal programs including Florida Bar CLE courses, and has spoken and taught at seminars, colleges and conventions in over a dozen states.

Since its inception in 1983, Best Lawyers has become universally regarded as the definitive guide to legal excellence. Because Best Lawyers is based on an exhaustive peer-review survey in which more than 39,000 leading attorneys cast almost 3.1 million votes on the legal abilities of other lawyers in their practice areas, and because lawyers are not required or allowed to pay a fee to be listed, inclusion in Best Lawyers is considered a singular honor. Corporate Counsel magazine has called Best Lawyers “the most respected referral list of attorneys in practice.”
