Gary Galiher Filed First Mesothelioma Case in Hawai‘i

In 1978, our founder, Gary Galiher, filed the first mesothelioma case in Hawai‘i for a retired Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard electrician named Tristan Nobriga. Since then, the firm has successfully represented thousands of people from Hawai‘i who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and other asbestos-related diseases.

Galiher DeRobertis & Waxman has gained national prominence for handling mesothelioma claims, and our expertise is used to benefit each and every Hawai‘i mesothelioma client and his or her family. We have an extensive library of historical documents to use as evidence for shipyard and ship board asbestos exposures. We also have information for other asbestos job-sites in Hawai‘i such as sugar mills, power plants and refineries, as well as the many and varied construction sites throughout Hawai‘i where asbestos was used. We have a national presence and reputation in mesothelioma- and asbestos-related cases from our 35 years of experience.

Superb Client Care and Service

Providing caring and individualized service to our clients is our standard. When a client is not feeling well or if transportation is an issue, our attorneys make house calls. We will travel to the neighbor islands and elsewhere to meet you. As client Mrs. Darlene DiCarlo described in her letter:

“. . . I had been a nurse, and I took care of Joe from the very beginning, when he was first diagnosed (with mesothelioma). As Joe got worse and couldn’t travel, the attorneys would come to our home to meet with him. Even the staff would come and bring papers for Joe to sign. I found that they were all very compassionate and were a great support when things really got bad. I still call the office to keep in touch with the attorneys and staff, and they always have time for me . . . .”
