Northern California Super Lawyers 2015 inclusion of 8 of our attorneys provides us with a positive message. It offers us a great tribute from our colleagues that our asbestos law firm continues to be on the right track. After more than 40 years of fighting for justice for our clients, it is nice to know that our professional colleagues continue to respect and admire our work. But for us, winning for our clients is what truly matters. We don’t represent big businesses with fancy software patents or contract negotiations. We represent hard-working everyday people many of whom die prematurely because of the asbestos exposure they suffered on their jobs. Achieving justice for them always has been and continues to be the most important accolade for us.
