About me

It’s difficult to quantify the value of the help we offer to our clients. Yes, of course, one measure is the size of our verdicts and settlements — over $7 billion at last count. But how do you quantify the value of simply being there to offer comfort, support, and encouragement to someone who is dying of mesothelioma or one of the other asbestos cancers?
