What If You Developed Cancer As the Result of Benzene Exposure? By Attorney John Peterson

                A potential client approached us in early 2009 on referral from another trial firm. Our client had worked on the site of a plant that had manufactured gas from coal from the mid eighteenth century until approximately 1960.  A known byproduct of manufacturing gas from coal is benzene contamination.  The utility which owned the plant sold the property in 1966.   During the time our client worked as a maintenance mechanic on the property, it was being used as part of the public water plant for a medium-sized Midwestern city.  Our client worked there from the mid-1970's until the city built a new water plant in 2001.  In 2006, our client was diagnosed with multiple myeloma (MM), a rare leukemic cancer of the bone marrow, which will likely kill him.

Social Media and the Courtrooms By Attorney Amy Risseeuw

There is significant debate among judges, lawyers, reporters and the public regarding the use of social media in the courtroom.  From the perspective of most lawyers and judges, the main concern is the that jury is free of influence during the trial, and bases its decision solely upon the evidence presented in the case.
