Joe has an intimate relationship with cancer. His mother died from cancer. It’s that personal experience and legal expertise that Joe brings to Asbestos.com. He knows what it’s like loving and losing someone to a disease such as mesothelioma.
“I don’t just know the legal aspect of cancer, but I know the emotional toll it takes just from talking to families,” Joe said.

“Sometimes people feel uncomfortable with the idea of a lawsuit. In the case of a lawsuit for mesothelioma, they shouldn’t,” Joe said. “The legal system is well established in these cases, and most of the time these lawsuits are settled long before a trial becomes necessary. There really isn’t much, if any, downside to it.”
