These are just a few samples of some of the hundreds of powerful letters our clients have shared with us. As attorneys who have handled mesothelioma, asbestosis and asbestos lung cancer cases for 35 years we have witnessed firsthand the tragedy of these diseases. But we’ve also had a front row seat to the strength and hopefulness our many clients have brought to the fight against mesothelioma.
We are honored to be part of our clients’ stories, which inspire us every day.
A California resident, Martin Lujan served in the Army during World War II, where he jumped out of planes and, according to him, even “caught the tail end of the Battle of the Bulge.” After his military career, Mr. Lujan worked on machines that made paper and was a freelance sheetrock hanger. Mr. Lujan retired in the early 1990s to take care of his sick wife, send more time with his five kids, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He was known as an avid fisherman, and went on several fishing trips throughout his life. Though Mr. Lujan once owned a boat, he was later forced to sell his boat because he could not longer fish. Then, just before his 81st birthday, Mr. Lujan was diagnosed with mesothelioma. Baron and Budd is honored to have known Mr. Lujan and to have worked with his family to help achieve justice.
On behalf of Martin O Lujan, our family would like to express our deepest gratittude to all of you who took your time and effort to represent our father.
He was a Carpenter for over 30 years working in the San Francisco Area at many building sites. Not knowing he was being exposed to asbestos that would later affect his health and family.
After our family found out he was diagnosed with this deadly disease, we were devastsated. Baron & Budd helped prove that these companies needed to pay for all the damage they caused to not only our family, but too many others. We are thankful that Baron & Budd were the attorneys chosen to represent us. Thank you to all who made this possible. Good luck to you all in the future.

Mr. William Hammonds, a resident of New Orleans, began his career in the Air Force in the late 1940s. He later went on to have a long career as a longshoreman throughout Mississippi and Louisiana. At the age of 70, Mr. Hammonds was diagnosed with mesothelioma, a rare cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. Our mesothelioma lawyers were proud to have represented Mr. Hammonds in his fight against the asbestos companies that caused his cancer.
-Transcript from phone call with Regina Alcorn, daughter of Mr. Hammonds.
A mother of two, Mrs. Carolyn Brunelli was always strongly dedicated to her family. She was enjoying time with her grandchildren when she was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2002 at the age of 59. Though Mrs. Brunelli did not work directly with asbestos, she was exposed to the deadly material as a young girl when she would accompany her father, a foreman, during his rounds through a local creamery in Colorado. Mrs. Brunelli was also exposed to asbestos when she visited her husband at job sites and washed his asbestos-laden clothing. Our mesothelioma lawyers are honored to have assisted Mrs. Brunelli and her family in their battle against the asbestos industry.
I will always remember what all of you have done for Carolyn Rose and me the last eight years. You are so wonderful and professional in every aspect. Wishing you a Blessed Christmas and Happy New Year!

After being honorably discharged from the Army in the early 1950s, Mr. Clarence Earls enjoyed a career as a longshoreman. Upon retirement, Mr. Earls became an ordained minister of a local Pentecostal Church, where he served the community for over 20 years. Mr. Earls was also an avid saxophone player, but he was eventually forced to quit due to lung issues caused by years of exposure to asbestos. Mr. Earls, a Texas resident, was diagnosed with an asbestos disease at the age of 69, and later passed in 2004. Baron and Budd was proud to have helped protect the rights of a veteran and community servant whose asbestos exposure could have been avoided.
I am writing to you, to thank you for saving Christmas. I would not have had any funds. The award checks you sent saved the day. I received the checks on Christmas eve. Again I thank you and all of the attornies who work with you.
I feel Baron and Budd help me to think that my husband is still providing for the family. His wrongful death brought many great hardships. This ecomony has not been Kind, however, you efforts through awards has certainly bridged the gap. I am grateful to all of you.

Mr. Howard Prescott never worked directly with asbestos or asbestos-containing products, but was diagnosed with asbestos lung cancer at the age of 52. After intense investigation, Baron and Budd mesothelioma lawyers found that Mr. Prescott was exposed to asbestos as a bystander, meaning that he worked around trades and job sites where asbestos was present. A resident of New York, Mr. Prescott’s life was tragically cut short because of his asbestos exposure, even though he did not directly handle the material.
This is long overdue. I cannot thank you enough for all you have accomplished on the asbestos settlement cases. It is amazing the number of companies involved.
Again I thank you and your fellow attorneys, as I see all their wonderful names on your letter-heads.
Again thank you and God Bless you and continue to give you wisdom.
Born and raised in Tennessee, Mr. Alvin Trantham spent much of his career as a carpenter. He and his wife, Stella, raised two sons together. Mr. Trantham was enjoying spending time with his children and granddaughter when he was diagnosed with asbestos lung cancer in 1996 at the age of 61. Mr. Trantham is still battling his cancer, and Baron and Budd mesothelioma attorneys are honored to be part of his battle.
I am writing to let you all Know how much we appreciate all you have done for us. I was sitting on the porch crying and thinking how much our lives have changed since Alvins surgery. But I also realize we still have him so far. The Dr. told us the other day that only 15 percent of people survived with cancer as bad as he had. The quality of our lives has changed very much as he is always congested and hasn’t much air. But a lot of prayer and people like you all have made it possible for so many. You all have made it possible for us to keep our bills paid and keep our home and pay Taxes. No way could I tell you all how much I appreciate it. Thank you for the last 2 checks. May God Bless you all, my Prayers are with you For this is right All these mens lives are forever changed.
Thank you so much.

A resident of Alabama, Mr. John Whitfield spent much of his career working at Reynolds Metal until he was forced to leave due to his diagnosis of asbestos lung cancer at the age of 54. When he wasn’t working, Mr. Whitfield enjoyed going fishing and spending time with his grandchildren. Sadly, Mr. Whitfield passed only 10 months after his cancer diagnosis. Our mesothelioma lawyers were honored to defend Mr. Whitfield’s rights against the asbestos industry until they received a favorable outcome.
Thank you seems so little to say to someone who has meant so much to me these past years.
I am well pleased with all you’ve done for me. When I lost my husband seven years ago, I didn’t know what I would do. You have made my life easier. I love each of you and appreciate every act of kindness shown me.
I’ll always have a place in my heart for each of you. I don’t know you personally, but we are connected through this case.
May the Lord bless and keep you in his care.
Thank you again for all you’ve done for me.

Mr. Joseph Norris, a U.S. Navy veteran, was exposed to asbestos as a bystander while working on Navy ships during his military career. Mr. Norris also came into contact with asbestos through his work with Crane Co. asbestos-containing valves. A father of three daughters, Mr. Norris was diagnosed with mesothelioma in 2005 at the age of 69. A little over a year later, Mr. Norris passed from the cancer. Our mesothelioma lawyers worked side-by-side with Mr. Norris and his family to help their family achieve justice for Mr. Norris’ mesothelioma.
These are no words to describe my appreciation and gratitude for what you have done for my family and myself. Your law firm got the ball rolling during the most difficult days of our lives, due to my husband’s illness and recent death from mesothelioma. Money can never replace my husband or our children’s father but with your consistent work and loyalty there is light now where it was very bleak. We have experienced nothing but professionalism, caring and dedicated service from the entire Baron and Bud staff. Our heartfelt thanks for all you have done and for being here for us. Your kindness, thoughtfulness and professionalism has been phenomenal and we feel so fortunate in having you represent us. A huge thank you for John Langdoc for the overwhelming case they won on my behalf this past year. Now my family and me will live comfortably with no financial worrys. We sincerely appreciate your great work and hold deep respect and gratitude for the entire staff of Baron and Bud. God Bless each and everyone of you thanks again.
