Baron & Budd Is a Leading Mesothelioma Law Firm
- We were one of the first law firms in the U.S. to successfully handle a mesothelioma lawsuit.
- We are not a so-called marketing firm; we are an active law firm handling mesothelioma cases.
- We have a history of precedent-setting verdicts, including the largest verdict in 2012 in the state of California and the largest verdict ever in the state of Texas.
- We have consistently fought against legislation that would limit the rights of mesothelioma victims, even winning a case at the Supreme Court level.
- We give back to organizations like ADAO, IMP and NCCN.
Mesothelioma has long been the cornerstone practice area for our firm. Today, almost 35 years since our founding, Baron & Budd’s mesothelioma lawyers are still fighting for the rights of mesothelioma patients and their families. Along the way we have been honored to represent many notable mesothelioma patients, such as Merlin Olsen, football legend and actor, and Admiral Elmo Zumwalt, Jr., a highly decorated Vietnam War Navy veteran.
Since we have successfully fought many of the major asbestos companies time and time again, Baron & Budd has an unparalleled national reputation as a tough law firm with a history of success both in and out of the courtroom. In addition to the work we do representing individual clients, our mesothelioma attorneys have been on the forefront in the creation of numerous asbestos bankruptcy trusts and currently sit on the governing committees for many of these trusts. Even if you do not choose Baron & Budd to represent you in a mesothelioma lawsuit, you will likely benefit from the work we have done to make sure bankruptcy trusts were adequately funded.
A critical point of difference between Baron & Budd and other firms is the fact that we directly handle mesothelioma lawsuits. While it may appear that any law firm that holds itself out as a mesothelioma “expert” actually employs attorneys who handle cases, that is not true. Many big-name law firms simply advertise for cases and then “sell” all of them to the highest bidder. We do not believe that this type of wholesale referral is in any client’s best interests and caution you to be aware of this practice as you speak to potential law firms.
Many of our mesothelioma verdicts have been recognized as some of the largest of their kind. For example our firm’s $55 million verdict for a mesothelioma patient in El Paso, Texas was selected as one of the top 100 verdicts in 2001 by the National Law Journal and two of our mesothelioma verdicts were selected as the top two product liability verdicts in Texas in 2011.

In addition to battling legislation that could limit the amount of compensation possible for people with mesothelioma, we believe in giving back to organizations such as ADAO to help raise awareness and support victims and their families.
