About The Legal Process

Mesothelioma can be physically, emotionally, and financially devastating to you and your family. How will you pay for the medical care and aggressive treatments you need? How will your family survive financially when you are gone?

A Mesothelioma lawsuit can provide you with the funds you need to get the best medical care available and to give you the peace of mind that comes from knowing your family will be provided for in the future.
Step By Step

The legal process will not be burdensome or expensive for you or your family members when you retain the Deaton Law Firm. First, we will talk to you about the circumstances of your case either by phone or at your home. If you choose to retain us as your legal representative, we will thoroughly research your case, identify the responsible parties, evaluate the damages you have suffered, and file a claim for the full amount of compensation to which you are entitled.

Our founder, attorney John Deaton, will take a brief depositiona formal interview for the legal record. That’s all you have to do.

If the Mesothelioma victim is still alive, the trial date will be expedited. Most cases are settled in less than one year.

Because we are experienced and successful Mesothelioma lawyers, we know how to build a solid case and negotiate to obtain a positive result. Attorney Deaton has successfully pursued more than 100 Mesothelioma cases. While some law firms focus on quantity of cases, our goal is to take fewer cases but obtain the maximum possible amount of financial compensation for our clients and their family members.

Nearly all of these cases settle outside of court because the responsible parties know they are liable. However, we are excellent trial attorneys who are fully prepared to take your case before a judge and jury, if that is the best way to obtain the best result for you.

It Costs You Nothing Unless We Win

We represent clients on a contingency basis. That means we pay all the up-front costs, and you pay no attorney fees unless we win your case. The contingency fee arrangement allows average citizens who could not afford to pay an attorney’s hourly fee to stand up to multi-billion dollar corporations with their large legal staffs and seemingly unlimited resources.

If you or a member of your family has Mesothelioma, please contact our law firm today to arrange a free consultation and case evaluation. It is important to act quickly in order to file your lawsuit before the statute of limitation runs out.

From our office in Providence, our Mesothelioma attorneys represent clients throughout the nation including Rhode Island, Florida, Philadelphia, Michigan, Indiana and more.
