At Kazan Law we work on a contingency basis, which means fees are taken only after the completion of trial or settlement. We don’t ask for fees up front. Our attorneys are prepared to handle the complex matters involved in your mesothelioma case.

It is often possible to pursue action against a number of defendants, including manufacturers and distributors of asbestos-containing materials. Kazan Law’s mesothelioma lawyers will be able to assess your circumstances and determine the best strategy for gaining compensation and justice.

Over the last 38 years, Kazan Law mesothelioma lawyers have won many landmark cases and achieved many large settlements from asbestos manufacturers, distributors, contractors, premises owners, and the insurance companies who represent them.
