NEWARK, New Jersey, June 5, 2013 – New Jersey mesothelioma lawyer Moshe Maimon has recently been named a “2013 Top Rated Lawyer in Mass Torts Law” by American Lawyer Media and Martindale-Hubbell. Mr. Maimon’s selection is based on his AV preeminent peer-review rating in the area of Mass Torts1, which is the highest rating for both legal ability and ethical standards. Mr. Maimon, a partner at the national plaintiff’s asbestos law firm Levy Konigsberg LLP (“LK”), has earned a national reputation in mass torts law, most notably in representing people diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis.
Born and raised in Washington State, Mr. Maimon moved to New York and attended Brooklyn Law School. As a law student, Mr. Maimon was already assisting in the representation of victims of asbestos exposure and he began successfully trying asbestos cases almost immediately after obtaining his law license in 1986. Over the past 25 years, Mr. Maimon has some of the most impressive jury verdicts in the history of asbestos litigation.
In a New Jersey mesothelioma case2, Mr. Maimon obtained a verdict of $30.3 million on behalf of an advertising executive who had been exposed to asbestos-containing auto parts decades earlier. That verdict still stands as the largest compensatory damages verdict ever upheld in the history of asbestos litigation.
In another New Jersey mesothelioma lawsuit3, Mr. Maimon won a historic verdict against Exxon-Mobil for “second-hand” asbestos exposure that caused a woman to get mesothelioma due to her laundering of her husband’s contaminated work clothing worn home from an oil refinery. The judgment of almost $10 million in that case was an important legal decision for protecting the rights of family members exposed to asbestos brought home from the workplace. Mr. Maimon has also obtained some of the highest jury verdicts in New York City mesothelioma cases, including a $47.15 million verdict4 on behalf of four clients diagnosed with mesothelioma.
Known for his innovative legal strategies, Mr. Maimon was the first lawyer to win a mesothelioma case against R.T. Vanderbilt5, the largest supplier of industrial talc in the United States. Mr. Maimon proved that this company’s talc was contaminated with asbestos and that his client, who developed mesothelioma, contracted the disease as the result of his exposure to the asbestos-contaminated talc.
Mr. Maimon has also been successful in other areas of the law, obtaining a verdict of $7 million in a commercial litigation case6 involving breach of fiduciary duty and winning important legal rulings in class action litigation involving ERISA plans.
Mr. Maimon also regularly presents on his specialized knowledge in asbestos cases to other lawyers at national conferences. Most recently, he shared his insights and skills in jury selection with hundreds of lawyers at the New Jersey Association of Justice Conference.

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.
- 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.
