If you search the terms mesothelioma, mesothelioma lawyer, mesothelioma attorney, etc. you will be bombarded with websites promising free consultations from "mesothelioma lawyers". Be careful. You only have one opportunity to get the compensation that you and your family deserve.
The first thing you should ask yourself is: who owns this website and exactly who is going to be calling me about a free consultation. First of all, you want to know whether the law firm has experience in mesothelioma lawsuits. How long have they been handling mesothelioma lawsuits? Have they ever taken a mesothelioma case to trial. If so, what were the results? Where does the law firm have offices?
Believe it or not, many people masquerading as "mesothelioma lawyers" on the Internet, have never even handled a mesothelioma case. A good comparison would be a company that signs you up for a mortgage for your home and just ships the loan to another company.
The lawyers at my law firm, Levy Phillips & Konigsberg LLP, directly handle mesothelioma cases in New York and New Jersey. My partner Stanley J. Levy was one of the first lawyers in the country to file a mesothelioma case. He blazed a trail about thirty years ago that has been followed by the attorneys at our firm. The best way to review a firm's track record is to review their website. If the you can't find a website for a law firm, that is a good sign that the are not a legitimate mesothelioma law firm. Check out our law firm website at www.lpklaw.com and our firm's mesothelioma information website at www.nynjmesothelioma.com.
