Moe Levine is widely recognized as one of the leading trial lawyers of his day. He was an eloquent speaker and frequent lecturer to legal audiences around the country. Even today, his out-of-print used books command prices of $1,000 or more. He developed the whole man theory, and successfully argued to many juries that you cannot injure part of a man, but that you rather injure the whole person. He argued that pain destroys a life, and that any loss of life, loss of mobility, or loss of ability, no matter how insignificant it may seem to society, has an impact to the people who loved that person. He had significant interest in the scientific details of medicine, and had great skill at interpreting that detail to juries.
Mr. Levine lived in Mineola, New York, and Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and died in 1974.
