Review Christopher Placitella

About Me

My law practice focuses on class actions, mass torts, personal injury, and asbestos related diseases including mesothelioma. I have been blessed with success made possible by working with some of the greatest lawyers in America. At Cohen, Placitella & Roth we often take on fights for the wrongfully injured that other lawyers have turned away.

My professional passion involves using my legal skills and relationships to help people in need of assistance. I try to devote some part of every day to helping others in our community including people with disabilities, people who have suffered catastrophic losses, those who have served our country, and young lawyers looking for direction and purpose. I am proud of being a lawyer and an advocate for lawyers and for the great things the legal profession has done for our nation
