July 20th marks the 10 year anniversary of the day we first opened our doors.

It’s been said that the achievements of an organization are the direct results of the combined efforts of each contributing individual. As our firm nears its 10th anniversary, I want to acknowledge our incredible family of attorneys and employees. Together, they have provided and continue to provide tremendous value to our clients, and to each other.

When this firm started with just eight of us, we made a promise to give each client and their family the attention, care, and respect they deserved. It was a promise that we believed would not only make a meaningful difference but also set us apart. It’s a promise we still live today, and one that has, in large part, led us to do good work for thousands of families affected by mesothelioma and asbestos across the U.S.

The goal was never to be the biggest. We’re honored to have come this far. It’s a testament to charter employees like Karen Bonnell, Ann Jackson, and Roger Lewis; to all of our partners; and to each skilled attorney and employee making a difference.

I thank them for their hard work, dedication, dogged determination, faith, and endurance. Their efforts have paid the price for the success of our firm.

We will take time to reflect on the last 10 years. But we will also take this opportunity to reaffirm our long-term commitment to victims’ rights and our promise to generate awareness about mesothelioma and the need to raise funds for better care and, ultimately, a cure, and to advocate the ban of asbestos in the United States.

More than anything, I want to express my gratitude for the trust of thousands of clients and their families across the country. From the courtroom to the living room to the hospital room, they allowed us into their lives. That is the ultimate compliment. They are, and will always remain, part of our family.
