OVER $2.5 BILLION OBTAINED FOR MESOTHELIOMA PATIENTS & FAMILIES

A History of Results 

We’ve represented patients and families affected by asbestos illness since 1993. Unlike big firms with mass-marketing campaigns, we are a small firm very selective in the cases we handle. Through this “quality vs. quantity” approach, we have helped our clients recover over $2.5 Billion in compensation.

Claims for Compensation

Asbestos lawsuits involve claims against solvent entities responsible for our client’s asbestos exposures-typically 10, 20 or more “defendants.” Additional claims are often pursued in the trusts of bankrupt companies which cannot be sued.

Settlements

Defendants seeking to avoid the risk of trial will settle. Prior success at trial drives the amount defendants pay to settle cases. The amount of each defendant’s settlement is confidential. A client’s total recovery often consists of multiple defendant settlements and bankruptcy trust settlements.

Verdicts

Cases go to trial against defendants which refuse to offer acceptable settlements. A successful trial results in a verdict which is a matter of public record. In most of our cases, the verdict combines with multiple settlements to comprise the client’s total recovery.

Below are a few of the verdicts awarded on behalf of our clients.
