Roger Worthington announced today the unfurling of
Worthington & Caron, P.C. The change to the firm marquis reflects the addition of John Caron as
a named partner to the firm.

“John Caron is a steady hand on the wheel,” said Worthington,
who has been representing men, women and children stricken with asbestos-caused
diseases, such as mesothelioma, since 1988. “You can throw storms,
pirates and even Leviathans at John, and he absolutely
will not flinch.”
Caron is a 25 year attorney and has been working with Worthington since
2005. In that time, he has established a proven track record of making
a positive difference in the lives of mesothelioma patients. “He
knows how to navigate rough seas,” said Worthington. “From
diagnosis, to the deposition, to settlement negotiations, to trial, there
is nobody I’d trust more to advocate on behalf of our clients.”

“Joining Roger in 2005 was like joining a crusade,” said Caron.
“We represent people from
all walks of life: from shipyard workers to school teachers, boilermakers to bankers and
millwrights to stay at home mothers. They all worked hard to make better
lives for their families, and had no idea that inhaling dust from the
‘miracle mineral’ asbestos could rob precious years from their
own lives. Fighting to achieve some
measure of justice for these unfortunate men and women and the sons, daughters and grandchildren
who love them motivates me each and every day.”
“I am determined to have Worthington & Caron, P.C. build upon
the unique level of commitment to asbestos cancer patients that my partner
Roger began over 20 years ago,” added Caron. “We are committed
to bringing the passion and resourcefulness necessary to obtain recoveries
for our clients which continue to be among the highest in the country.
We are also committed to maintaining our position as a leading supporter
of research into treatment advancements that can extend the lives of our
asbestos cancer clients.”
Worthington & Caron succeeds The Law Office of Roger G. Worthington,
P.C which was established in 1991. The firm specializes in mesothelioma
cases. Roger Worthington was the first lawyer in the U.S. to establish a
non-profit medical foundation dedicated to finding reasonable treatment options for mesothelioma patients.
He’s also the first lawyer ever to convince the asbestos industry
to donate to medical research.

San Pedro, California office is located within eyesight of Terminal Island
and the old Todd Shipyard in Los Angeles harbor.
