Testimonials from past clients speak to the resources and dedication of the Meirowitz & Wasserberg mesothelioma firm.
“I never imagined wanting or needing a law firm, and my experiences in life have led me to be cautious in placing trust. Sam Meirowitz is the consummate professional that people seek because he listens when others talk. This is not a firm that goes through the motions. They feel for people, champion your case and are open and honest.”Kieran B.
“My dad was an 84-year-old steamfitter who developed lung problems from asbestos. Searched for an attorney, but nobody wanted his case. I heard from a doctor about Meirowitz & Wassenberg and gave them a call. Within a day, they sent attorney Bonnie Steinwolf to his house. I was amazed Bonnie knew more about my business than my son and me. She advised me all the way through. Approximately 10 months later, the settlements started coming in.”James P.
“Choosing Sam and Dan to represent us in my father’s mesothelioma case is one of the best decisions we could have made as a family. Their honesty, integrity and compassion are unsurpassed. After interviewing with other law firms, they were a clear and unanimous choice for my family. While no amount of money can compensate us for the loss of our dad, Sam and Dan have fought hard on our behalf, which has helped us greatly in caring for our mom and her future needs. I highly recommend Sam and Dan and all their kind, compassionate team members.”Angelo M.
