Helping Families Affected by Mesothelioma


Mesothelioma Attorneys

Successful representation of mesothelioma patients has helped our lawyers develop an arsenal of knowledge and experience, as well as an excellent reputation. If you or someone you know has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, we encourage you to explore our attorneys’ track records, so that you too can make the right choice and get the mesothelioma lawyers who will fight relentlessly until you receive the justice and compensation you deserve.

A Respected Name in Mesothelioma Litigation

Karst & von Oiste LLP is a nationally renowned name in mesothelioma litigation. Our mesothelioma lawyers have represented numerous individuals and groups of workers and has awarded clients substantial financial settlements. Understanding the science of asbestos exposure is an invaluable resource. One of the many benefits of our early involvement in mesothelioma litigation is our access to pioneering researchers and experts in this complex and ever-changing medical field. We put these experts to work on behalf of our clients, in the courtroom and in the treatment of their disease. Our attorneys understand the asbestos-related diseases and the laws that apply to them. Our lawyers have combined that knowledge and expertise into a powerful resource for our mesothelioma clients and their family members.

Hundreds of Jury-Tried Mesothelioma Cases

Companies that knew the threat asbestos posed must be held accountable. Our attorneys are often able to recover compensation even from companies no longer in business. Most defense lawyers are familiar with our solid reputation and credentials and know in advance that we will not settle for less than the best possible offer. They know that we build every mesothelioma and asbestos case as if it was going to trial, and we have taken hundreds of cases to juries when a fair settlement had not been offered.

Karst & von Oiste has served as lead counsel in major state and federal mass consolidation cases representing hundreds of people diagnosed with mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases.

Individual Approach and Attention to Every Case

Many law firms today use a generalized approach to handling cases, even those as complex as mesothelioma cases. With a goal of cutting back on the time spent on each case, they use broad brush practices and techniques to process cases as fast as they can, often risking the possibility of missing important details in a case and thus undermining the goal of negotiating the best possible compensation for their clients. Contrary to such mentality, we treat every case as if it was our only one.

Complete Handling of Mesothelioma Cases

In many courts, mesothelioma cases are treated urgently and given high priority. This is particularly true if the claimant is alive. In some jurisdictions, the entire case can be resolved within four to five months; in others, it can take longer.

Here at Karst & von Oiste LLP, our attorneys do everything possible to avoid delays and move our cases as quickly as we can. This is accomplished thanks to the coordinated work of our team members and the fact that every mesothelioma case goes through a strict control and supervision, including regular follow-ups and reviews by the lead lawyers.

Frequent Case Updates and High Accessibility

Our mesothelioma attorneys update clients on a regular basis, so that they always know of every important development in their case and that it is being taken care of. Our lawyers and support staff take every phone call from our clients with the highest level of priority and try to answer all their questions during those conversations. If unavailable at that moment, we always call our clients back as promptly as possible.

It is not uncommon that our mesothelioma attorneys provide clients with their cell phone numbers in order to address any urgent questions or concerns that the clients may have in the future.
