John R. Kane is a partner at Savinis & Kane, L.L.C., which is located in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. He focuses his practice on the representation of clients in western Pennsylvania and West Virginia who suffer from, or have lost loved ones to, mesothelioma or lung cancer and attribute the development of those conditions to asbestos exposure. Mr. Kane and the other partners of Savinis & Kane, L.L.C., founded their firm in 2004 with the goal of providing high-quality service to a small number of clients. Some of his other areas of practice include medical malpractice, personal injury, premises liability and toxic torts.
After graduating from Florida State University in 1996 with a Bachelor of Science in communications, Mr. Kane earned his Juris Doctor from Duquesne University School of Law in 1999. Admitted to practice in Pennsylvania, he is also admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Western District of Pennsylvania and the U.S. Court of Appeals for the 3rd Circuit. In order to stay abreast of current developments in his field, Mr. Kane is an active participant in the American Bar Association and the American Association for Justice.
During his career, Mr. Kane has aided several clients in obtaining multimillion-dollar awards and settlements. In 2004, he served as co-counsel for a man with mesothelioma who was awarded $3 million in a jury verdict. That man’s wife also received $3 million when the case concluded. Mr. Kane helped secure a jury award of $1.4 million for the estate of a mesothelioma victim and his surviving spouse in 2005. Five years later, he helped obtain a $50 million verdict as co-counsel for the plaintiff in a product liability case in which exposure to asbestos was a central issue.
