During my career I saw way too many people who suffered both medically and financially from workplace accidents or exposure to asbestos. More times than I care to count those people found themselves caught in a never-ending cycle of bad news regarding compensation and fair treatment under the law. Which is why we worked so tirelessly to build a firm that gave these workers a voice-the firm remains committed to fighting for them so that their financial well-being and their families are protected and injustices are properly addressed.
