Attorney Referrals

When you refer a mesothelioma client to ELSM you can be assured of providing a mutually beneficial advantage to you and your client.

If you are an attorney or a law firm with limited experience in asbestos litigation and have mesothelioma clients seeking legal representation or have clients that know someone diagnosed with mesothelioma that is interested in taking legal action, a co-counsel relationship with Early, Lucarelli, Sweeney & Meisenkothen could prove beneficial. As a first step, we welcome the opportunity to discuss the potential case and how our firm can be of help.

Our lawyers specialize in complex asbestos litigation matters. We have represented thousands of mesothelioma victims over the last 40 years and, to date, have acquired over $5 billion dollars in settlements. In this time, we have developed large databases of information regarding asbestos products and their manufacturers, jobsites across the country where asbestos exposure occurred and volumes of information about military branches and industries where many mesothelioma victims were harmed on the job.

This volume of comprehensive information combined with our extensive experience litigating asbestos cases over the last four decades gives us the confidence to approach each mesothelioma case with a strategic plan to ensure the most favorable outcome for our clients. Our results speak for themselves.
