California Mesothelioma & Asbestos Attorneys

Protecting Trade Workers in California

At The Paul Law Firm, we are dedicated to helping hardworking Americans who have been harmed by corporate negligence. Approximately 20,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with mesothelioma every year, and the majority of those cases can be traced to asbestos exposure.

Asbestos was used for decades, leaving construction workers, miners, industrial workers, and others exposed to the toxic mineral everyday as they worked. Although the dangers of asbestos exposure are now well-documented, there is no ban on the material in the U.S. This means that the only protection for these workers are the efforts of mesothelioma attorneys who are trying to change the system and get compensation for those who have fallen victim to this oversight. Many workers who were exposed to asbestos in the past are currently living with mesothelioma or have died as a result of the condition. Meanwhile, others who are still working in high-risk industries continue to be exposed because of negligence. Our mesothelioma law firm works for these individuals to help them recover the compensation that they need.

Our lawyer focuses his legal practice on representing the workers and families who have been impacted by mesothelioma. Help us join the fight as California mesothelioma attorneys help amplify the voices of workers all across the state. We will protect your rights and help you recover the compensation you deserve.

Mesothelioma & Asbestos The Only Area We Practice

Jerry Neil Paul

We Are the Advocates for the Building Trades

Having paid his way through law school with teamster wages while working for UPS, Jerry Neil Paul (he insists everyone call him “Jerry”) can claim a special connection to the trades. Throughout an illustrious quarter-century career winning landmark settlements and verdicts for union California Building Trades workers totaling over $2 billion, Jerry has dedicated almost his entire practice to asbestos-caused mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestos litigation. Proudly California-based from the start, he’s also proud to say he’s appeared before the U.S. Supreme Court. Also, in 2006, Jerry stood up before the U.S. Senate with his client, mesothelioma victim Bill Speicher, a steamfitter from U.A. Local 250 in Gardena. They testified in front of the chairman of the Judicial Committee, U.S. Senator Arlen Specter, regarding asbestos legislation. Large international corporations were pushing the legislation, which would have been bad for workers with asbestos disease. Jerry’s representation and Billy’s testimony helped defeat this bill.

The Right Attorney

Can Make All The Difference In The Outcome Of Your Case

It’s Jerry’s tireless charity that stands out. He is a co-founding board member of the Mesothelioma Research Foundation of America. The other co-founder was James W. Kellogg, a retired U.A. Pipe Trades International Representative of California and Hawaii and vice president of the State Building and Construction Trades Council of California. In 2001, Jerry and his wife of 30 years, Elizabeth, volunteer executive director of the Mesothelioma Research Foundation of America, undertook the funding of a mesothelioma research lab at USC/Norris Comprehensive Medical Center. Lab director and board certified both as an oncologist and hematologist, Dr. Parkash Gill has made groundbreaking discoveries for mesothelioma, as Jerry has continued to aggressively raise funds to fuel the impressive work.

Thanks to such efforts, mesothelioma sufferers have better treatment options than at any time in the past. But the fight is not over. Workers, especially those over age 40, remain vulnerable. For those with concerns, Jerry knows the ropes. His careful attention to clients is strictly old-school, but don’t let his highly approachable, plain-spoken manner fool you. He’s a formidable and proven advocate. And when it comes to trades, his door is always open.

“There will never be a Hollywood movie about him, but the next time you see a superhero movie or comic think about Jerry Our Super Hero.”
