Attorney Paul Dix focuses his practice on representing families affected by mesothelioma and asbestos exposure. His dedication has resulted in the successful prosecution of numerous cases nationwide.
Paul started at the firm in 2004 as a law clerk and has also clerked for the Illinois Supreme Court and Madison County State’s Attorney’s Office. He attended Saint Louis University, where he graduated magna cum laude with his B.A. in economics and political science and then earned his J.D. He became an attorney in 2006.
“I am devoted to helping victims of mesothelioma and their families,” Paul said. “A tragic similarity in these cases is that the companies who sold asbestos products or used asbestos in their facilities did so at a time when it was known to be a deadly carcinogen to which there is no safe exposure.”
Paul oversees an asbestos trial team dedicated to investigating and prosecuting mesothelioma cases on an individual basis nationwide. As an asbestos attorney, he personally handles all aspects of his clients’ cases and is dedicated to helping them navigate this complex legal process.
“In addition to facing extraordinary medical challenges, clients suffering from mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases have cases involving extremely complex factual and legal issues,” Paul said. “I have gained a vast amount of knowledge through my mesothelioma litigation experience and leverage that on behalf of my clients, so they can focus foremost on their health and family.”
Paul volunteers for a number of public interest and non-profit groups, including St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Alton. Prior to becoming an attorney, he worked at a non-profit legal clinic that represented individuals who were harmed by the wrongdoing of others.
Paul has been admitted to the bar in Illinois and Missouri. He is a member of the American Association for Justice, American Bar Association and Illinois Trial Lawyers Association.
