Lipton Law is a family business. Run by siblings Marc Lipton and Jody Lipton, the firm stands for integrity and personal attention to every single client that walks through the door. And it has since the firm’s founding over 50 years ago.
In a recent article for Leading Lawyers, Jody and Marc sat down and spoke at length about their family’s legacy in the law. From learning about the law in the house as part of the regular discourse to their path to today’s firm, every point in their personal history supports the core tenets of their practice.

Taking the tough cases
In medical malpractice, brain injury and other catastrophic injury cases, the level of attention needed is intimidating to many attorneys. These cases require not only toughness in a courtroom, but also an attorney willing to provide the service these clients deserve. These cases have complications that other attorneys simply cannot handle, such as:
- Frequently facing off against a large company with an intimidating legal team, crossing multiple state borders.
- Emphasizing and explaining the challenges that people with traumatic brain injuries face to several audiences.
- Having clients that face devastating medical complications and are often focused on their health and struggling.
Managing these struggles means having the ideal mix of compassionate, attentive teamwork.
Managing these struggles is strictly for legal teams with the experience and personal willingness to engage with and respond to the needs of their clients.
Compassion, Attention, Teamwork
Because these cases come with a baked-in level of difficulty, the clients demand compassion. It’s not a demand for the attorney from the client, it. It is simply the truth. These clients deserve attorneys who listen and demonstrate that they understand and care. To clients facing devastating injuries, results and action are not the only measures of success.
More than that, though, is the knowledge that the attorneys handling a case work together and consider the client as an essential member of the team. As a family run business this is not only important but essential.
Personal experience guiding service
The main takeaway from the article is that the personal experience of our firm, the way our attorneys lived and grew in their careers makes a difference. Whether it’s Jody’s experience as a prosecutor or Marc’s experience leading national litigation against a large company, there are important pieces of history that guide their work. Knowing where we come from helps our clients trust us with their most sensitive issues.
