Best Law FirmBest Law Firm 2016

Early, Lucarelli, Sweeney & Meisenkothen is a national law firm recognized for its representation of over 1800 hardworking men and women who have been exposed to asbestos and diagnosed with mesothelioma. ELSM devotes nearly 100 percent of our resources to mesothelioma cases and has been doing so for over 30 years.

The attorneys at ELSM have extensive knowledge about the companies that distributed, manufactured and supplied products containing asbestos and have used this knowledge to obtain settlements and jury verdicts which are among the highest in the country.

ELSM assists clients not only in filing civil lawsuits to recover for their injuries but also in filing workers compensation and bankruptcy claims where appropriate.

Asbestos & Mesothelioma

Malignant mesothelioma is the most serious of all asbestos related disease. Although uncommon, mesothelioma cancer is no longer considered rare.

Mesothelioma Treatment

Ongoing research and new mesothelioma treatments like Alimta® can give mesothelioma patients hope.

Our justice system allows those suffering from Mesothelioma to seek compensation from the manufacturers of asbestos and asbestos-containing products.

Early, Lucarelli, Sweeney & Meisenkothen is nationally recognized for our representation of mesothelioma victims, and for our understanding of and compassion for victims and their families. Our experience in these matters spans three decades.

ELSM is proud to support MARF (Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation) in its work to fund mesothelioma research.

I am very pleased with the law firm Early, Lucarelli, Sweeney & Meisenkothen and feel that they have always had my best interest at heart. Whenever I have had questions to be answered, I could (and can) count on prompt answers by calling the person with whom I have had the most contact, Jennifer Lucarelli. She has always treated me like a life-long friend.
