America survives and thrives when manufacturers innovate, produce, and sell their products. This is a good thing. What is not good is when corporations profit off products they know are defective, harmful, and are injuring innocent people. The civil justice system often is the only way to hold these companies accountable for the harm they cause.
Since 1955, we have been forcing the largest corporations in the world to face juries and pay for the damages they have produced. Each year we help teach more than 1,000 attorneys how to successfully handle these types of cases. Below is a sample of our current and previous litigation.
