We have capabilities such as comprehensive discovery, case development, management and litigation of environmental cases.

Gregory A. Cade is an attorney specialized in Environmental and Occupational Law who has successfully represented thousands of clients throughout the Southeastern region of the U.S. over the course of his career. He is also the chairman of Environmental Litigation Group, P.C. which he joined in 1993 as an investigator and litigation paralegal. Gregory A. Cade has been recognized as a specialist in Environmental Trial Attorneys by the AATA and has also been deemed one of Birmingham’s Top 40 Under 40, a prestigious award offered to successful young professionals for their remarkable achievements.

 

His primary area of practice is asbestos mesothelioma, having assisted numerous Americans who have been affected by pleural mesothelioma or other asbestos-related conditions following prolonged occupational or environmental exposure during his vast legal experience of 20 years. The attorney has efficiently aided clients who have been intentionally or negligently exposed to these carcinogenic minerals in the process of filing a lawsuit against asbestos manufacturers or companies, thus obtaining the financial compensation they were eligible for. Gregory A. Cade’s personal vision can be summed up as “Know your case”, which has also been the leading principle throughout his professional practice. He approaches each asbestos litigation case from both a personal, humane point of view and a legal perspective in order to ensure the most positive outcome for his clients.

 

Gregory A. Cade received his Bachelor’s Degree in Natural Science and Mathematics from the University of Alabama at Birmingham School of Public Health in 1991 and completed a master’s program in Occupational Health, Safety and Industrial Hygiene at the University of Alabama at Birmingham in 1996. Subsequently, the attorney obtained his Juris Doctor degree from Miles School of Law in 2001. Over the course of his legal practice, Gregory A. Cade was the recipient of an impressive number of awards, including Alabama’s 2011 and 2012 Top 100 Trial Lawyers, Martindale Hubbell’s AV Preeminent Rating for Legal Ability and Ethical Standards and Birmingham Magazine’s Top Attorneys in 2011. He is also a member of several groups and associations such as the National Registry of Environmental Professionals, the American Bar Association, as well as the Magic City Bar Association.

 

Gregory A. Cade has also been an environmental consultant and OSHA compliance expert for a brief period of time, his work focusing on groundwater contamination and worker exposure to hazardous substances in various industries such as petroleum processing and steel manufacturing. The attorney has worked closely with epidemiologists, toxicologists and other scientists at the UCLA School of Public Health as well, which undoubtedly represented a great opportunity during which he substantially expanded his knowledge on the detrimental health effects of occupational and environmental exposure to toxic agents. Additionally, Gregory A. Cade is Registered Environmental Manager of the National Association of Environmental Professionals.

 

The fundamental professional motivation of Gregory A. Cade is represented by his avid interest in the legal system, as well as by his passion for science, particularly for chemistry and biology. Desiring to pursue a career which would cater to both of his passions, he decided to become an environmental attorney, a profession which Gregory A. Cade considers to be very rewarding. Although asbestos cases are often extremely difficult and challenging to resolve, the attorney is permanently bound to provide his clients with support and quality legal representation. Thus, asbestos victims can successfully obtain the compensation they are entitled to from companies which turn a blind eye to asbestos use and exposure or completely neglect the issue.

Competence, professionalism and compassion
Gregory Cade is by far the most compassionate and driven attorney I’ve ever met. My mother was a textile mill worker in the ‘60s and was exposed to insane amounts of asbestos dust on a daily basis. She was diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma earlier this year and we decided to take legal recourse. Mr. Cade was recommended to us by a family friend. We were instantly certain he was going to be able to help my mother and we were absolutely right. In less than four months, my mother was given a far greater amount of money as compensation than we’d expected, all thanks to Gregory Cade’s amazing skills and competence.

A reliable and straightforward attorney!
This exceptional attorney has made a very painful time more bearable for me and my family. While I wasn’t the one who needed legal assistance, my grandfather, who had been an insulator for most of his life, was diagnosed with pleural mesothelioma and we encouraged him to take legal recourse. We were astonished by Gregory Cade’s display of compassion and genuine care for my grandfather’s health. After our first consultation, he assured us that he and his legal team would do all in their power to submit the claim as soon as possible so that we wouldn’t have to wait for too long. Indeed, our expectations were greatly exceeded and my grandfather received compensation in the shortest time possible for such a complex and time-consuming case. Mr. Cade, as well as the other members of the ELG team, are amazing professionals whose service are invaluable to asbestos victims and we highly recommend other people injured by asbestos to take action, too. Recovering compensation is easier than you might think with the help of an experienced legal team such as the one at ELG!

The best asbestos attorney you’ll ever meet!
I would like to thank Gregory Cade for his excellent legal assistance and also to the ELG team for everything they did for me. Without the guidance of these amazing people, my asbestos claim wouldn’t have stood a chance and I certainly wouldn’t have got the compensation Mr. Cade was able to obtain in such a short time. He is a highly experienced and well-informed attorney with a remarkable work ethic who will not settle for less than you deserve. Mr. Cade is also a great listener. I was very stressed before our first consultation because I knew how complicated personal injury cases can be, especially asbestos ones. However, he calmly presented me all the legal options I had and helped me make the best decision. I’d recommend him to anyone who was affected by asbestos exposure without hesitation!

A highly skilled and dedicated litigator
I would like to begin by saying that Gregory A. Cade is an exceptional attorney. I was an insulator for a good 12 years and though I obviously knew I was working with asbestos, I had no idea how dangerous it is. I was shocked when my doctor told me I have mesothelioma in 2015 but at least it was not very advanced. My family and I decided to seek compensation and we were extremely lucky to come across Gregory A. Cade, who was very eager to help us from the start. Thanks to his professionalism and competence, my case was a success and I was soon able to recover a significant amount of money. I would definitely recommend his services to anyone who needs legal representation.

One of the most knowledgeable lawyers I’ve ever met!
Gregory Cade is by far the most diligent professional I’ve ever met and I couldn’t be more grateful for having chosen him to work on my case. His knowledge, willingness to help and compassion are truly boundless. I’ve recently been diagnosed with mesothelioma but I didn’t want to file a lawsuit initially because I knew how time-consuming the whole process could be. However, I had to do something. I couldn’t keep pace with the cost of my treatment anymore, so I decided to take legal action, eventually.

Mr. Gregory Cade is an outstanding mesothelioma attorney and a great friend
Mr. Gregory is an exceptional attorney with clear principles, dedication and great knowledge. My father was diagnosed with mesothelioma about 5 few years ago and that is when we were put in contact with Mr. Gregory who fought for our rights and did everything he could to get us the best results and compensation possible. He wasn't just our attorney, he established a real connection with us and took things personally, he became our friend until this day and was there for us whenever we needed. I can't thank him enough for all the work and passion he put into our case.
