Widow Left to Provide for 3 Daughters After Losing Husband to Mesothelioma

Hendler Flores Law represented the family of a decorated Navy Veteran who was exposed to asbestos while serving on a warship in Vietnam. He later died from mesothelioma, leaving his wife to provide for their 3 young daughters. Scott Hendler and co-counsel Michael Brickman negotiated several settlements with asbestos companies for the family, and also won a $13.8 million verdict against Owens Corning Fiberglas, a company that made asbestos pipe covering for Navy vessels. The compensation recovered was more than enough to secure the financial future of the family.

For more than 3 decades, Scott Hendler has been seeking justice for thousands of Central American banana plantation workers who developed sterility and other severe illnesses after being exposed to a dangerous chemical called DBCP.

Despite numerous legal obstacles and devious tactics by defendants, Scott continues to fight for these victims' rights.

Fighting

For Your Ideal Ending

Getting the best possible outcome in complex legal cases requires a delicate balance of skill and creativity. Your story is unique and so too will be the way we work up your case. Unlike large firms that process cases in batches, we are committed to building strong individual cases, making tough demands on the defendants, and securing the legal solutions our clients want (and need).

Our personal injury attorneys represent you based on your interests, not ours. Your goals form our strategy.
They may be:

You want to make sure what happened to you or your loved one never happens to anyone else. Our cases often impact corporate behavior and influence public policy.

You want to hold companies, individuals, and manufacturers accountable for their negligent actions. We’ve spent 30 years relentlessly taking on corporate giants.

You need support after a catastrophic injury or loss of a loved one. We’ve helped hundreds of people like you get through this.

You want to be heard and understood. We really listen. Your story matters. It deserves to be told.

You want financial compensation for medical costs and other expenses resulting from your injury, illness or loss. We will not rest until we get you the best possible recovery.

How we can

There is no greater power than speaking your truth.

We understand it can feel overwhelming to consider taking legal action, but holding responsible parties accountable for their misconduct can bring tremendous peace of mind.

One bad chapter doesn’t mean the story is over.

If you are here, considering legal action, you are likely in crisis. You may be in pain or grieving. You may be angry and feeling powerless. But it’s important to realize that a tough part of your life is just that – one part. Let us help you write a better ending to this story.

Advocates for Change

That Matters

We recognize as lawyers the unique platform we have for enacting real change in our community – in fact that’s what inspired many of us to become lawyers in the first place. We are passionate about using our legal standing to develop and support social, economic, environmental, and cultural policies and practices throughout Texas (and beyond) that make communities more safe and fair. Social justice, equity activism, community action, and cultural awareness are some of the movements we care deeply about and tirelessly fight for day in and day out. Challenging injustice is what we do.
