Below are his thought-provoking responses to our questions.

  • What’s your favorite part about helping Mesothelioma Victims?

I became a lawyer to help people who are unfairly injured. There are no more deserving clients than asbestos victims. Our clients worked very difficult jobs to earn a living. Throughout their work, they were exposed to asbestos from companies who knew asbestos was dangerous but decided to put profit over people and continue to use asbestos. These companies ignored medical and scientific literature, knew they were hurting people by exposing them to asbestos, and did nothing to help them. When you combine the very deserving nature of our clients with the egregious actions of these companies, it makes us very motivated to fight to get our clients what they deserve. Through that willingness to fight for our clients, we can obtain judgements that pay their bills and help to make sure their family is taken care of. In short, my favorite part of helping Mesothelioma victims is winning the fight against these companies and getting money for our clients so they know they, and their family, will be taken care of.

  • What’s the most challenging part of the legal process when it comes to helping Mesothelioma Victims?

The most challenging part of the legal process when it comes to helping Mesothelioma victims is that the companies have many resources and in many cases are attempting to keep documents and information from our clients. These are companies that thought they could get away with exposing workers to asbestos, which the companies knew caused Mesothelioma. This challenge is also a motivating factor for me because I know our clients are deserving and what the companies are doing is wrong. This motivates me and everyone at the Halpern Law Firm to go the extra mile for our clients.

  • What made you decide or what motivated you to want to become an attorney, or specifically an attorney who specializes in Pennsylvania Mesothelioma cases?

  • Why is it important to be punctual and aggressive during the legal process?

It is important to be punctual and aggressive during the legal process so that we can help you make sure we get everything our clients deserve. Additionally, you want to make sure you are punctual in filing your case and call as soon as possible because the statute of limitations can bar Pennsylvania claims if you wait too long.

  • For Mesothelioma Victims, what are the benefits to filing a case?

The benefits to filing a case are that you and your family can get compensated for your injuries.

  • Do you recommend that Mesothelioma Victims should file for compensation?

Yes, having Mesothelioma is incredibly difficult. The last thing you want to think about is what will happen to you and your family financially. Filing a claim and getting compensation for your injuries can help relieve that burden.
