Federal Judges Select Levin Papantonio Attorneys | Levin Papantonio | Personal Injury Lawyers
Federal Judges

In complex injury litigation, federal judges often select a small number of lawyers to conduct the national investigation on behalf of the thousands of people injured. Judges require this small group of chosen lawyers to have the experience, resources and expertise to handle the national litigation.

To date, our law firm attorneys have been selected by federal judges more than 40 times.
