Seattle Asbestos Mesothelioma Lawyer

Overview

Attorney Brian Weinstein is a founding partner of Weinstein Caggiano, based in Seattle, Washington. He began filing lawsuits for asbestos mesothelioma victims as soon as he became a lawyer in 1981. Over the last 40 years, Brian has achieved an impressive number of significant asbestos verdicts, favorable appellate results and advantageous asbestos settlements on behalf of working men and women across the country who suffer from mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. His clients have worked at shipyards, power plants, refineries, paper mills and just about any industrial or commercial setting where exposure to asbestos has occurred.

Brian pioneered the category of asbestos lawsuits on behalf of women suffering from mesothelioma because of contact with their husbands' work clothes. He has successfully tried asbestosis and asbestos-related lung cancer and mesothelioma lawsuits in federal courts in New York, Georgia, Texas and New Mexico, and in state courts in Washington, Illinois, Missouri and Texas. He has been recognized as one of the nation's leading asbestos trial attorneys and rated a Super Lawyer by Washington Law and Politics. For 15 years he has been rated* AV Preeminent by Martindale Hubble, the highest rating one can achieve from his peers based on the quality of his work and his adherence to the highest ethical standards.

After more than 20 years of working as a mesothelioma attorney, in 2004 Brian ran for and won a seat in the Washington State Senate, where he continued to advocate for working families, focusing on consumer rights issues. After only two years of public service, he was honored with the chairmanship of the Consumer Protection and Housing Committee. Brian was also the prime sponsor of the Insurance Fair Conduct Act, which punishes insurance companies that unreasonably deny coverage claims or benefits. He also worked to pass a new law imposing a fiduciary duty on mortgage brokers toward borrowers. After one four-year term, Brian returned to his law practice, where he continues to tirelessly advocate for asbestos victims and others harmed by defective drugs and medical devices.

"A lot of the lawyers I went to school with wanted to work on Wall Street but I had no interest in joining the corporate world. I knew I wanted to use my law degree to hold corporations accountable when they negligently make dangerous products and take advantage of working men and women who are just trying to support their families. Representing people who suffer from mesothelioma by asbestos exposure has allowed me to do exactly that."

How do I choose a lawyer?

Consider the following:

Comfort Level
- Are you comfortable telling the lawyer personal information? Does the lawyer seem interested in solving your problem?

Credentials
- How long has the lawyer been in practice? Has the lawyer worked on other cases similar to yours?

Cost
- How are the lawyer's fees structured - hourly or flat fee? Can the lawyer estimate the cost of your case?

City
- Is the lawyer's office conveniently located?

Not sure what questions to ask a lawyer?

Here are a few to get you started:

  • How long have you been in practice?
  • How many cases like mine have you handled?
  • How often do you settle cases out of court?
  • What are your fees and costs?
  • What are the next steps?

Want to check lawyer discipline?

It is always a good idea to research your lawyer prior to hiring. Every state has a disciplinary organization that monitors attorneys, their licenses, and consumer complaints. By researching lawyer discipline you can:

  • Ensure the attorney is currently licensed to practice in your state
  • Gain an understanding of his or her historical disciplinary record, if any.
  • Determine the seriousness of complaints/issues which could range from late bar fees to more serious issues requiring disciplinary action.
