For over 35 years, the law firm of Galiher DeRobertis & Waxman has successfully represented families suffering from mesothelioma and other catastrophic injuries. These principles and core values guide us:

We Handle Your Case as a Team

The lawyers and legal assistants at our firm have worked together on thousands of asbestos and personal injury cases. We will bring decades of experience to help you and your family. Our founder, Gary Galiher, brought one of the first mesothelioma cases in the country, and was among the first lawyers to investigate and develop the case against the asbestos companies. Each member of the firm has developed a unique understanding of the medical and legal issues surrounding mesothelioma. As a result, we have extensive resources and experience related to all issues involved in these cases, including asbestos products, job sites, industry knowledge, asbestos hazards, and mesothelioma diagnosis and treatment, to name just a few. Our team approach will lead to the most favorable outcome of your case.
