Fighting For Clients Nationwide
Reifers Holmes & Peters LLC attorneys have defended companies across the nation sued in toxic tort litigation for over 30 years. Our attorneys also successfully represented clients in mass asbestos litigation before the federal judicial panel on Multidistrict Litigation (MDL 875). Often, plaintiffs’ attorneys attempt to expedite the trial of a case, and defendants are faced with a trial date shortly after service of process. A short timeline requires representation by a firm ready to respond immediately. Our defense attorneys understand the issues that are uniquely involved in defending a serious toxic tort claim and are familiar with the courts’ procedures.
