We Speak Spanish

Hola, nosotros hablamos Español.

When we formed Leighton Law in Florida, one of our first priorities was to establish trust with our clients, and a large part of that requires excellent listening and oral communication skills. In Florida, both English and Spanish are spoken with roughly 21 percent of households speaking Spanish at home. That’s nearly 4 million Spanish speakers. As of the 2010 U.S, Census, Hispanics made up 27 percent of Florida’s population.

Not only is Florida made up of a large Spanish-speaking population, many of these residents require representation in personal injury, medical malpractice, and police brutality cases. According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, in 2018, Hispanic or Latino workers accounted for 31 percent of fatal occupational injuries, a 6 percent increase from 2017. In addition, traffic accidents, truck accidents, pedestrian accidents, COVID-19 infections, slip-and-fall injuries, medical malpractice, and other calamities affect Hispanics and Latinos across Florida.

As a Florida law firm specializing in personal injuries, it is our responsibility to speak the languages our clients speak. Being able to effectively communicate with our clients and their loved ones in their native tongues, whether in English or Spanish, is crucial to a successful outcome. That’s why Leighton Law is a fully bilingual law firm. We employ Spanish-speaking attorneys, paralegals, clerks, and receptionists to ensure you are comfortable with every interaction with us. We are adept at explaining legal concepts in terms you can understand.

We Don’t Just Speak Spanish, We Actively Serve the Hispanic / Latino Community

We are passionate about helping our Spanish-speaking clients get the relief they deserve. Our representation ensures that their voices are heard despite language barriers. Many of our clients, through no fault of their own, have suffered debilitating injuries. Faced with a bleak future filled with medical bills, therapies, medications, medical equipment, or in the case of death, funeral expenses, these victims need an advocate on their side.

Why It Matters

Leighton Law is a premier law firm representing Florida claimants in personal injury and medical malpractice cases. We have obtained substantial recoveries for our clients, ensuring that the responsible parties are held accountable for their actions while also securing the financial means required for our clients’ long-term needs. Having a board-certified personal injury attorney with trial experience is an absolute must, as is having one who speaks your language.
