Proven Results in Court
For six consecutive years, the multi-million dollar verdicts PWHD obtained for mesothelioma clients were listed in the top 10 verdicts of the entire state of Virginia.
Disclaimer: While our lawyers give every client the attention and dedication they deserve, the outcome is always specific to his or her case. Each case is different, and the outcome of any case depends on a variety of factors unique to that case.
Who May Have Been Exposed To Asbestos?

Some of these occupations include (but are not limited to):
- Shipyard Workers
- Navy Sailors

- Maintenance Workers
- Construction Workers
- Automobile Mechanics
- Factory Workers
- Wives or Family Members of Asbestos Workers
