For more than three decades, we have represented victims of asbestos-induced disease, including workers in every construction building trade that used asbestos-containing products, in courtrooms across the United States. Along the way, we established important legal precedents in our cases while fighting for people who developed serious illness, including mesothelioma, lung cancer and asbestosis.We have specialized in cases involving asbestos-containing wall and ceiling covering products and have recovered millions of dollars in judgments and settlements for our clients. We begin by pioneering the first cases brought on behalf of plasterers and laborers who were exposed to plaster products manufactured U.S. Gypsum Company and National Gypsum Company, and spray fireproofing applicators exposed to the products of Turner & Newell, Ltd. (now Ferodo Industries), once the world’s largest manufacturer of asbestos products.
Today, we specialize in representing carpenters, painters, drywall installers and homeowners exposed to asbestos-containing sheetrock products (joint compounds, joint tapes and gypsum wallboard) made by Georgia Pacific Corporation, Kaiser Gypsum Company and other companies. There are many law firms that handle asbestos cases, but few possess our depth of our experience and still fewer that have our commitment to excellence in the representation of our clients.
