Nationally Recognized Pioneers in Asbestos Litigation

Kazan, McClain, Satterley & Greenwood, A Professional Law Corporation

The attorneys at Kazan, McClain, Satterley & Greenwood in Oakland, California, are nationally recognized pioneers in asbestos litigation, particularly mesothelioma. Asbestos/mesothelioma litigation is one of the most complex types of legal action, and our narrow focus has allowed us to develop deep knowledge and understanding of all elements of these types of cases as well as extensive trial experience. Along with our dedication to helping our clients obtain the compensation they deserve, these factors put us in the top list of mesothelioma litigation attorneys in the country.

Our founding, senior and managing partner, Steven Kazan, began representing California victims of asbestos in 1974, and in the decades since then has primarily handled third-party asbestos lawsuits and asbestos trust claims for workers and veterans with mesothelioma nationwide. Partner David McClain also has decades of experience successfully litigating cases. In fact, in 33 years, he has never lost a trial and his successes exceed $5 billion in settlements alone. Partner Joseph Satterley is one of the preeminent talc/mesothelioma attorneys in the country with record breaking nine-figure verdict wins in recent years. Partner Gordon Greenwood has an outstanding track record of achieving some of the highest settlements in the nation.

While the mesothelioma lawyers at our firm have won many awards and honors, our satisfaction comes from what we win for our clients. Some of the firm's recent verdicts include $117 million for a user of Johnson & Johnson talc baby powder as well as over $22 million for the family of a deceased paint maker. Not only have cases such as these provided deserved compensation for victims, but they have also set precedents for all California courts.

Kazan, McClain, Satterley & Greenwood works on a contingency fee basis and charges nothing for consultations with clients. We offer virtual appointment and home visit options. Contact us today for a free consultation.
