From PR News, CPSM Publishes New Booklet: Top Tips for Choosing a Mesothelioma Attorney

Anyone recently diagnosed with mesothelioma has our deepest sympathy. Being given a diagnosis of incurable cancer is devastating. Figuring out what are the most important next steps can be overwhelming. In addition to finding the right treatment, if diagnosed with this particular type of cancer, it's also vitally important to select a law firm to represent you in filing a mesothelioma lawsuit and bankruptcy claim. The compensation that one can receive when represented by expert asbestos attorneys helps to cover medical costs and provide financial security in such a difficult time.

The mesothelioma law firm of Clapper, Patti, Schweizer & Mason (CPSM) has just published a booklet that shares all the top tips in choosing the right firm for those who have been injured by asbestos.

The booklet warns that many attorneys claim to have the ability to serve clients who have mesothelioma. However, not just any attorney can successfully litigate an asbestos case. Asbestos litigation is one of most complex areas that exist in the law. Without a law firm that specializes in asbestos cases, the legal process can be an uphill battle.

CPSM has been devoted to representing clients who have been injured by asbestos for over thirty years. They are recognized as leading mesothelioma attorneys who have consistently won substantial awards for their clients. As experts in their field, they give the top three recommendations for choosing a law firm to represent you:

Nothing tops years spent litigating asbestos lawsuits and bankruptcy claims, and it’s even better if the firm either exclusively handles these types of cases or has someone who has specialized in this field of law for at least ten years.

2.Personal Touch.
When battling cancer and facing the end of life, it's even more important to choose a law firm that has excellent personal service. One sign of this is the client’s ability to speak directly to an attorney, not a paralegal or secretary, and get their questions answered right away. Another is the willingness of attorneys to come to you, realizing that your medical treatment is first priority. Lawyers who have represented clients with mesothelioma will do everything possible to make the legal process as easy and stress free as possible while still keeping the client informed.

3.Track Record
Look for a law firm that has a long track record of obtaining millions of dollars in financial recoveries for their clients and families, through jury verdicts, settlements, and bankruptcy claims. In addition, you want a firm that has a history of achieving early financial awards, as this can help greatly in covering medical expenses. The law firm should have attorneys and a well-developed staff that are experts with product identification, bankruptcy trusts, probate, and wrongful death claims.

Clapper Patti Schweizer & Mason has all three: over 3 decades of experience, a high degree of personal service, and a proven track record that speaks for itself. CPSM has been around long enough to see the great difference these three things make to families who are battling this fatal, incurable disease.
