Cooney & Conway’s Legal Process

The first step in filing an asbestos lawsuit is a free consultation with the law firm. The attorneys at Cooney & Conway will review your case and ensure you feel comfortable with the practice.

Dedicated litigators working on your case will investigate the circumstances of your asbestos exposure and the impact of your medical diagnosis. Using an extensive library and database of historical asbestos references, they’ll build your case to maximize the financial reward for you and your family. 

Client comfort and peace of mind are Cooney & Conway’s top priorities. The team’s flexibility allows for virtual or in-person visits wherever you are, and meetings won’t interrupt your treatment schedule. 

Cooney & Conway only gets paid if it wins your case. It operates on a contingency basis, so you won’t owe any fees unless the firm wins at trial or obtains a settlement in your favor. 

It can take several months or longer for the court to deliberate your case. A judge or jury will determine the outcome if your case goes to trial. However, the defendant may offer a settlement before that point. With 60 years of experience, Cooney & Conway will know whether taking a settlement or going to trial is best for you. 

Filing an asbestos lawsuit while dealing with a mesothelioma diagnosis can be stressful, but working with an experienced firm can ease the burden and leave you with more time for what matters most, getting treatment and spending time with loved ones.
