Areas of Law Description

Our practice areas include:

- Mesothelioma Litigation

Mesothelioma litigation is a type of toxic tort lawsuit typically brought against manufacturers, distributors, and suppliers of asbestos-containing products. Asbestos is the only known cause of mesothelioma, a deadly but preventable cancer. At one time, asbestos was used in thousands of products. These cases can be difficult to prove. However, with our national reach, expansive database, and extensive experience trying mesothelioma cases, our firm provides aggressive representation throughout the entire course of litigation.

- Birth and Childhood Injury Litigation

Our birth injury litigation practice focuses on birth defects, developmental delays, childhood cancers, and reproductive injuries resulting from: a parent’s exposure to toxic chemicals in the workplace such as semiconductor manufacturing, exposure to factory farming pesticides, and dangerous medications. Our attorneys work with highly qualified scientific and medical professionals to determine if a child's injury is related to a parent's exposure to harmful chemicals and pharmaceuticals.

- Qui Tam Whistleblower Litigation

Fraud against the government takes many forms, from health care scams involving false claims filed with Medicare or Medicaid to price-fixing on government contracts. Taxpayers are left to foot the bills. Our firm represents relators or whistleblowers who have uncovered fraud against the government in a variety of industries including pharmaceutical, medical device, hospice and nursing home, government contracting, and construction. Our qui tam attorneys put our resources and experience to work for our clients to provide aggressive representation. We are commitment to protecting the interests our whistleblower clients.

- Love Canal Toxic Exposure

The Love Canal neighborhood, located in Niagara Falls, New York, was built on what was once a long-time toxic chemical waste dump. In the late 1970’s heavy rains and snow pushed the toxic waste and fumes to the surface. Families living in the area revolted and the government stepped in. Today, many current and former residents are experiencing chronic illnesses believed to be caused by childhood exposure to chemical waste and toxic fumes in the Love Canal neighborhood. Our firm has a launched an investigation to help the children of Love Canal find answers.

- Dangerous Medical Devices

The FDA receives over 200,000 complaints on medical devices and surgical implants with over 2,000 device-related deaths annually. Our attorneys in the firm’s dangerous medical device practice focus on helping victims of metal-on-metal hip implant devices, transvaginal mesh, and other failed implants that have resulted in severe pain, revision surgery, and metallosis or heavy metal blood poisoning. We represent many female clients who are dealing with women-specific injuries caused by failed transvaginal mesh devices.

- Drug Injury

Many prescription drugs that most patients believe to be safe can cause severe illness and death. In a rush to bring new drugs to market, the pharmaceutical industry often exerts more effort focused on profits than on consumer safety. Oversight by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is not always sufficient to prevent a dangerous drug from causing life threatening injuries and illness.

- International Litigation

For more than a decade, our attorneys have provided international litigation services for clients from around the globe, including three foreign governments. Specific areas of focus in the international arena include tobacco litigation, exposure to pesticides and other harmful chemicals, and a variety of governmental claims against multinational corporations.
