Most people assume that all law firms handle the legal issues of the cases they talk about on their websites and in various advertisements.
But the truth is that many advertising firms are not equipped to handle legal work and are merely marketing for cases that they will then refer to other law firms – and not necessarily the best firms to handle your case.
This wholesale hand-off of cases is not the practice of Baron & Budd.
When we take on a mesothelioma case we handle the actual work. In some cases, when it is in the client’s best interests, we will co-counsel with another law firm that may have specialized industry or geographical expertise. However, you’ll never see another firm going before a jury for a Baron & Budd client. That’s our job and we take it seriously.
There are very few law firms in the United States that have the depth and breadth to handle mesothelioma legal cases from start to finish. Baron & Budd is one of them.
As a result of our decades of work representing people with mesothelioma, we have an incredible depth of knowledge about the asbestos industry and the various ways in which men and women were exposed to asbestos. The defendants (the companies that caused the exposure) know the reputation of Baron & Budd and know that we mean business. They know too that we have the resources to take a client’s case to a jury trial. That’s why a majority of our cases settle before they go to trial. Our reputation as a powerhouse in the courtroom means that the defendants would generally rather settle than fight us in the courtroom.
When we do go to trial, we certainly have the depth and strength to represent our clients well. The top verdicts we have achieved in Texas and California are but a sampling of what we have done for our clients over the years. When a verdict is appealed, which is often the case, we have the resources to fight the appeal along with a long track record of appellate wins.
We are also well-versed in the process of filing bankruptcy claims, having served in leadership roles when the bankruptcy trusts were first established.
