FredricGLevin Fredric G. Levin’s 1999 gift of $10 million was a transformative event in the history of the Fredric G. Levin College of Law. In gratitude for that donation among many others from Levin and his family, University of Florida administrators named the college of law in his honor.
Fredric G. Levin is a 1961 UF Law graduate and Pensacola lawyer who stands among the nation’s most accomplished trial attorneys.
Levin, a partner in Levin Papantonio Thomas Mitchell Rafferty & Proctor, P.A., has received more than 25 jury verdicts in excess of $1 million (six in excess of $10 million). At various points in his career, he has held the national record for jury verdicts involving the wrongful death of a child, the wrongful death of a housewife, the wrongful death of a wage earner, and the largest personal injury verdict in the state of Florida. He is a member of the Inner Circle of Advocates, an organization limited to 100 members throughout the country, and has been listed in every edition of the publication Best Lawyers in America.
In 1993, Levin drafted legislation and was instrumental in passing a revision of the Florida Medicaid Third Party Recovery Act. The move opened the door to multi-billion dollar tobacco industry settlements nationwide in which states recovered costs spent to treat smokers.
From books to magazine stories to video, the media record of Fredric G. Levin and his family is a rich one.
Levin’s personal history is intertwined with key moments of Florida and University of Florida history. With partners, including his son Martin, Levin has delved deeply into the art and science of trial lawyering.
As one of the country’s top personal injury litigators and a man who has demonstrated profound influence on state and national politics and policy, the general and legal media have profiled him repeatedly during his career.
Levin has also made his mark in television with his call-in show “Law Line.” It was launched on his Blab Television network in 1984 in Pensacola. The show and network are still going strong today.
