Lawyers who represent people who have been injured, killed or abused are dismissed. Belittled. Ambulance chasers.
Until tragedy befalls someone.
And then, yes, then, they are the most important person in your life.
Each and every member of the 2020 Lawdragon 500 Leading Plaintiff Consumer Lawyers in America is remarkable. They face the longest odds every day to stand up for what they believe in. Much is made of their victories – when a merchant of toxic chemicals, for example, is held accountable against all odds. Sparse notice is given to the cases that get away, where an overwhelming defense or impossible case leaves them alone, end of the day.
The Plaintiff Consumer 500 range from coast to coast, counseling grieving family members, finding pathways to justice for those who have been harmed or killed. Among them are lawyers who have won billions of dollars from pharmaceutical companies and other purveyors of dangerous products. Fearless counsel who take on the toughest sexual abuse cases. An attorney who is at this moment advising someone who mourns a brother lost to the pandemic, a mother fallen ill.
Today, we are all that someone.
We lock arms, march forward and believe. And regard as perhaps never before the 500 warriors on this guide who will fight for your loved ones as you would.
Stay safe. Dare to hope.
