Scott Hendler handled our families Mesothelioma wrongful death lawsuit in a very professional and expert manner. He is a hard working and honest Attorney. Scott was always available when we had questions and kept us informed throughout the process and counseled with us on all critical decisions. He showed true concern for our families loss and did an outstanding job investigating, providing expert witnesses and delivering evidence to substantiate the lawsuit and ultimately obtain compensation for my family. I would recommend Mr. Hendler to any family who has been through the pain of losing a loved one due to this horrible cancer.

It has been my pleasure to work with Scott Hendler professionally, and to get to know him personally. Scott is a relentless, focused, intelligent, outside the box thinker who will not hesitate to spend the resources and do what is necessary and in the best interests of his client. He literally will travel the world searching for information, and or witnesses, to prosecute his case. You can do no better in the selection of an attorney to represent you, or work with.

I was at a loss about how to proceed after my husband died from exposure to asbestos in 1993. Because his exposure came during his enlistment in the Navy, I didn't know if it was possible to make the asbestos manufacturing companies responsible for his death. I was left with three young daughters, 12, 9, and 7 and my husband did not have any life insurance.
I had spoken with three lawyers and had pretty much given up when my oldest daughter saw a commercial on television about the Hendlar Law Firm and its work with asbestos cases. She copied the number and asked me to give Scott a call. A few days later I placed the call and within 48 hours Scott was ringing the doorbell to my house. Scott and all the people on his staff demonstrated a real concern for me and my daughters. We were not just a file number, but real people. Scott kept me abreast of every detail of our case. Thanks to Scott, my daughters were able to choose the colleges they attended and I did not have to worry about how tuition, room and board were going to be paid.
Scott and his people are in my daily prayers and I will continue to prayfor him so that he can continue to help families just like mine.

Relationship: Worked together on matter
I highly endorse this lawyer's work. Scott is an extremely talented lawyer with whom I've had the pleasure of working on several matters. Scott combines a keen strategic sense with a brilliant understanding of complex legal questions. He's also very hardworking lawyer and a genuine pleasure to be around. He is adept at handling mass tort cases involving hundreds and even thousands of plaintiffs, sophisticated scientific evidence, and knotty procedural questions. I highly recommend him.
