Mesothelioma Attorneys & Asbestos Lawyers

mesothelioma-attorneysFor over 30 years, the New York based mesothelioma attorneys at Levy Konigsberg LLP have been recognized by clients and other lawyers alike as the “right attorneys” for the legal needs of mesothelioma victims across the United States. The firm has recovered over $1.5 billion dollars for those suffering from mesothelioma. The decades of successful representation of mesothelioma patients have helped our lawyers develop an unparalleled arsenal of knowledge, experience, skills, and reputation that has enabled them to obtain substantial recoveries on behalf of so many mesothelioma victims and their family members all over America.

If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, we encourage you to explore our attorneys’ track record, so that you too can make the right choice and get the mesothelioma lawyers that will stand by you and fight relentlessly until you receive the justice and compensation you deserve.


Here’s a summary of who we are and what we have to offer:


Pioneers of mesothelioma litigation in America

Since the 1970s, our founding partners were pioneers in championing the rights of asbestos and mesothelioma victims. In fact, Stan Levy was the first personal injury lawyer in the Northeast to pursue an asbestos case and one of the first mesothelioma attorneys in America.

Later in 1985, he formed the law firm with a mission to apply their remarkable legal expertise to seek justice and financial compensation on behalf of asbestos and mesothelioma victims across the United States.


Massive knowledge of asbestos law and science

mesothelioma-attorney-stanlevySince the 1980s, the law firm has evolved into a nationwide powerhouse for mesothelioma litigation in the U.S. Our mesothelioma lawyers have represented numerous individuals and groups of workers and won for them multi-million-dollar settlements and verdicts.

Understanding the science of asbestos exposure is an invaluable resource. One of the many benefits of our early involvement in mesothelioma litigation is our access to pioneering researchers and experts in this complex and ever-changing medical field. We put these experts to work on behalf of our clients, in the courtroom and in treatment of their disease.

Since then, our attorneys have amassed considerable knowledge of asbestos-related diseases and the law that applies to them. Our lawyers have combined that knowledge and expertise into a powerful resource for our mesothelioma clients and their family members.


Unparalleled experience among mesothelioma attorneys

Our lawyers bring to bear on every case a level of experience that can only come from decades of working together toward a common goal – maximum compensation for mesothelioma victims and their families.

Each new generation of mesothelioma attorneys at the firm acquires the skills, techniques, and knowledge of our senior partners through mentoring relationships. Not only does this benefit every lawyer, it benefits our clients in the form of consistently successful representation.


Hundreds of asbestos and mesothelioma cases tried before jury

mesothelioma-attorneys-verdictOur mesothelioma attorneys fight for justice for the innocent people – the victims of deadly asbestos exposure. Companies that knew the threat asbestos poses must be held accountable for the illnesses that resulted from their negligence.

Our lawyers have succeeded by negotiating vigorously with manufacturers of asbestos products and their insurance companies, no matter how influential or uncooperative they are. Our attorneys are often able to recover compensation even from those companies that have long been bankrupt.

Most defense lawyers are familiar with our solid reputation and credentials and know in advance that we will not settle for less than the best possible offer. They know that we build every mesothelioma and asbestos case as if it is going to trial, and we have taken hundreds of cases to juries when a fair settlement had not been offered.

The mesothelioma attorneys at Levy Konigsberg LLP have also served as lead counsels in major state and federal mass consolidation cases designed to benefit many hundreds of people diagnosed with mesothelioma and other types of asbestos-related diseases.


Record mesothelioma and asbestos compensation verdicts

Mesothelioma attorneys at Levy Konigsberg LLP have recovered hundreds of millions of dollars in compensation for victims of mesothelioma and asbestos cancers.

We are proud of the work our lawyers do on behalf of our clients, often in groundbreaking cases against the toughest defendants. Our law firm has obtained landmark asbestos and mesothelioma jury verdicts for exposures to welding rods, cable, asbestos gaskets and packing, commercial talc, and industrial equipment, including the first ever jury verdicts against welding rod, cable, and commercial talk manufacturers.

Our law firm is frequently referenced by the legal press for our association with the largest and landmark asbestos and mesothelioma verdicts in virtually every category, including various jurisdictions, types of asbestos products involved, and forms of asbestos exposure.

Hundreds of satisfied clients

mesothelioma-attorneys-clients Our clients are the central and most precious part of our law firm’s practice, and their satisfaction is our top goal and priority. We get the greatest motivation to our continued success in this area of law from our clients’ appreciation of our work.

We are inspired by our clients’ gratitude, which is expressed so emotionally during our meetings and phone conversations with them, through their letters and thank you cards, as well as video testimonials, some of which you can review right on this website.


Caring and understanding personnel

For clients, we understand that their case is their whole life. Our attorneys treat them with the care they deserve. We address their unique needs and do our utmost to help them put their life back together as much as possible.

The first days and weeks following a mesothelioma diagnosis are devastating. They want answers. They need solutions.

At Levy Konigsberg LLP our lawyers understand their fears and frustrations. We have seen it in countless mesothelioma cases throughout our practice. That is why we have made it our unwavering mission to help.

Hundreds of mesothelioma victims and their family members trust us, because our attorneys have stood by their side and fought for their rights. They have been there for them from beginning to end to ensure that they had the legal guidance and support they needed.


Personally handling mesothelioma cases

Countless lawyers who advertise to position themselves as mesothelioma attorneys have never actually handled an asbestos case before. In fact, they refer them out to real mesothelioma lawyers for a fee. That is not how we operate. We are the real mesothelioma attorneys who work personally on each case from beginning to end and always happy to meet our clients, whether at our New York or New Jersey offices or at a client’s home or hospital anywhere in the country.


Individual approach and attention to every case

mesothelioma-attorneys-workUnfortunately, many law firms today use a generalized approach to handling cases of the same type, even those as complex as mesothelioma cases. With a goal of cutting back on the time spent on each case, they use broad brush practices and techniques to process cases as fast as they can often risking the possibility of missing important details in a case and thus undermining the goal of negotiating the best possible compensation for their clients. Contrary to such mentality, we treat every case as if it was our only one. We investigate each case with a team of lawyers, paralegals, and leading experts in the field, while being in constant communication with the clients, to ensure that we have done everything we could to reach the full potential of each individual case.


No upfront costs for handling your mesothelioma case

We offer a free initial consultation, and cover the expenses of building your case, so there is no cost to you unless we recover compensation for you.


Fast handling of mesothelioma cases

In many courts, mesothelioma cases are treated urgently and given high priority. This is particularly true if the claimant is alive. In some jurisdictions, the entire case can be resolved within four to five months; in others, it can take longer.

Here, at Levy Konigsberg LLP our attorneys do everything possible to avoid delays and move our cases as quickly as we can. This is accomplished thanks to the coordinated work of our team members and the fact that every mesothelioma case goes through a strict control and supervision, including regular follow-ups and reviews by the lead lawyers.


Frequent case updates and high accessibility

Our mesothelioma attorneys update clients on a regular basis, so that they always know of every important development on their case and that it is being taken care of.

Our lawyers and support staff take every phone call with a high level of priority and try to answer them on the spot. If unavailable at that very moment, they call the clients back as promptly as they can.

It is not uncommon that our mesothelioma attorneys often provide clients with their cell phone numbers to address any urgent questions that the clients may have in the future.

attention: Mesothelioma has no known cure and often causes severe pain, suffering, and other types of damage, such as loss of consortium, and loss of income. Additionally, due to the exceedingly high cost of mesothelioma treatments, many families exhaust savings and accumulate financial debt in order to pay for the medical expenses of their family member.

Under the law of most states, pain and suffering from mesothelioma may be compensated through the award of money damages, usually obtained with the help of experienced mesothelioma attorneys. In some states other types of damages may also be recovered.

Asbestos litigation affords mesothelioma victims the opportunity to receive financial compensation and hold accountable the companies that caused their asbestos exposure.
important: If you or your family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should get in touch with a mesothelioma lawyer as early as possible to determine if you have a mesothelioma case and to:
  • Preserve your rights to bring a legal action against the responsible parties within the limited time frame allowed by law, known as statute of limitations;
  • Obtain maximum compensation in your case by being able to:
    • Preserve evidence and establish facts of the asbestos exposure while the claimant is still alive and able to provide information;
    • File and resolve a lawsuit against the responsible parties before they file for bankruptcy or, if they already have, to obtain compensation before their bankruptcy trust funds run out of money;
  • Expedite your case, as courts tend to give higher priority to mesothelioma lawsuits where the claimant is still alive.
