When you or a family member is diagnosed with mesothelioma, everything changes. We understand that this is an incredibly difficult time for you and your family. While no amount of compensation can buy you a medical miracle, filing a mesothelioma lawsuit can help lift financial burdens so you can focus on what’s important.

There is no cost to file a claim and contacting us with your questions is free.

We also know that traveling during this time could be difficult. Our New York mesothelioma lawyers will come to you. Over the past decade, we have represented many clients throughout the state of New York, including families who live in:

  • Syracuse
  • Utica
  • Westbury
  • Yonkers


Our mesothelioma law firm has recovered $5 billion in verdicts and settlements on behalf of thousands of clients throughout the United States.

A recent success story involved a $3 million verdict for a New York pipefitter’s family. For more than a decade, Gerald Suttner, was exposed to asbestos used in valves manufactured by the defendant, Crane Co. This asbestos exposure lead to a pleural mesothelioma diagnosis, of which he died twelve months later at age 77. After his death, Simmons Hanly Conroy attorneys Myles Epperson and Perry Browder, along with co-counsel, represented Suttner’s wife and daughter.

“The defendant’s use of asbestos and failure to warn workers and consumers of its dangers is inexcusable,” said Browder. “On behalf of Mr. Suttner’s family, we are proud to have won and held Crane responsible for its decision to use this lethal material in its products.”

Just like Suttner, all victims of asbestos-related diseases and their families have a right to be heard in the civil justice system, and our attorneys are passionate about enforcing each of our client’s rights while giving them the respect and attention they deserve.

You should know that New York has a unique set of laws that could impact your ability to file a claim. For example, New York has statute of limitation laws that restrict the time frame in which mesothelioma patients and family members can file a lawsuit.

Rest assured our New York mesothelioma lawyers are prepared to help you understand the process and guide you through the legal system. We have 40 attorneys in our mesothelioma practice who solely focus on helping people like you. Each senior attorney operates within a small legal team comprised of several associate attorneys, paralegals, medical staff and investigators. This structure ensures you will receive personalized attention while your case works its way through this complex legal process.

If you’d like to talk to a New York mesothelioma lawyer about a potential case, we are available to meet with you in your home or a location of your choosing.


Our previous experience representing mesothelioma victims in New York is important because it means we are familiar with New York job sites where asbestos exposure occurred.

Asbestos is a deadly mineral that has been used in thousands of products in multiple industries including manufacturing, steel working, shipbuilding and more. When asbestos fibers are inhaled or ingested they increase a person’s risk of contracting an asbestos-related disease like mesothelioma.

The difficult part is asbestos fibers are often microscopic and many workers might not know how they were exposed. If you are unsure about how your asbestos exposure might have occurred that does not mean you can’t file a mesothelioma lawsuit. Our experienced attorneys have helped our past clients identify their asbestos exposures and they are ready to help you and your family as well.
