Kazan Law’s practice is limited to cases involving catastrophic injury and death from exposure to asbestos.
We pursue products liability, premises liability, negligence and punitive damage causes of action in third party civil cases and before Bankruptcy Trust Funds.
Our attorneys have been instrumental in winning precedent-setting rulings by the California Appellate and Supreme Courts. All of the principals and many of the associates have extensive trial experience.
Kazan Law is consulted by and gives advice to over a thousand potential clients each year. Over the years, we have filed over two thousand cases and we now file, on average, 20-25 new cases per year.
We have a staff of over 60 employees, including 22 attorneys, who work on this limited number of new cases each year. This allows Kazan Law to provide quality representation to every client.
We are large enough to have extensive resources and many years of experience, yet small enough to ensure that every client receives individual and outstanding representation. Each case is individually developed and handled by a small team of attorneys, paralegals and investigators. This team also has the resources of the entire office to draw upon, including professional investigators and extensive databases.
Our representation of clients has two important goals. The first is to go as far as possible within the limits of the legal system to redress the wrong done to each of our clients. The second is to have a broader impact: to improve the work-place through public education about occupational health and safety, and through legislative advocacy. We do this in our litigation, by supporting the Kazan, McClain, Abrams, Fernandez, Lyons, Greenwood, Oberman, Satterley & Bosl Foundation, Inc, and by our active participation in WORKSAFE!, a statewide coalition that supports occupational safety and health.
Kazan Law also maintains an active pro bono practice (that is, we work for free) on behalf of labor organizations and public interest groups, and our attorneys are active in and on the boards of many organizations, including Consumer Attorneys of California, the Alameda-Contra Costa Trial Lawyers Association, the Charles Houston Bar Association, Cal/OSHA’s Advisory Committee, the National Lawyers Guild, Santa Clara County Committee on Occupational Safety and Health, the AFL-CIO Lawyers Coordinating Committee, the Labor and Employment Law Section of the State Bar of California, and Trial Lawyers for Public Justice
