Galiher DeRobertis & Waxman LLP has tried hundreds of mesothelioma and personal injury cases throughout the United States for over 35 years. We are experienced, aggressive, and resourceful trial lawyers who will carefully and fully investigate and prepare your case. Our adversaries know that we stand ready to go to trial in every case, and we have an excellent reputation nationwide, which leads to the best possible results for our clients.
Choosing an attorney to represent you is an important decision. Because each case presents unique factual, medical, and legal issues, it is essential to choose an experienced firm. Our firm has the expertise, background, and courtroom experience to effectively represent our clients, and we know the challenges that you and your family are facing as a result of this tragic diagnosis. We welcome the opportunity to work with you.
We Have A National Presence
We have helped clients in over 40 states and several foreign countries, and will travel to wherever you are to meet with you.
We have a national reputation. Our firm has made its mark on the national scene through the asbestos litigation, as well as through the state attorney generals’ lawsuits against the tobacco industry. Our firm has worked with premier plaintiff firms from around the United States on asbestos and mesothelioma cases for over 35 years.
We Are Successful For Our Clients—In Court and On Appeals
We have negotiated substantial settlements for our clients and obtained significant verdicts at trial. We have also been successful when our verdicts have been appealed.
While representing our clients, we uncovered a massive fraud by one of the defendants in the asbestos litigation. As a result, we ultimately helped negotiate a nationwide settlement of $400 million with The Travelers’ Insurance Companies for thousands of asbestos claimants.
We Understand Your Emotional and Financial Stress
Just as importantly, we understand your emotional stress and will help you find support that you need. We are aware of the financial pressures you are facing, and will help you with these economic challenges by identifying your potential sources of financial support. We will work tirelessly on your case to obtain the most favorable financial result possible for you and your family.
The widow of one of our clients wrote to us recently about the settlement of her husband’s case. Debbie K. wrote:
The settlement was beyond expectations, even when your long-standing reputation is considered… It is the professionalism and expertise delivered with so much consideration and kindness that I truly appreciate and respect… I will always be grateful for the time and care everyone put into our case and the peace of mind it provided my husband when he needed it the most.
We Are Resourceful and Aggressive
We are a resourceful law firm that has a reputation for aggressively pursuing personal injury actions against some of the largest businesses in America—ones that have placed corporate earnings ahead of the health and safety of the consumer. Unlike many other law firms that look for quick settlements, the Galiher firm gets full compensation for its clients by staying involved, being prepared and ready for trial in each and every case we undertake.
The Galiher law firm has tried over 50 jury trials to verdict in asbestos litigation. Our two most recent verdicts were awards of $5.3 million and $9.8 million to our clients. While each case is unique and the results depend on the specific facts, our firm works to obtain the best result possible for our clients.
No Recovery, No Fee
If there is no recovery in your case, you will not owe us any fee. We handle these cases on a contingency fee basis so that you will not pay anything unless there is a recovery in your case.
