He represents those in Indiana and the rest of the midwestern United States in legal cases of personal injury, particularly those related to medical drugs and pharmaceuticals, and civil litigation for sexual abuse cases. Over the past 30-plus years, he has represented clients who have been injured by Yaz, vaginal mesh, Zofran, Levaquin, contaminated steroid injections, Skechers shoes, testosterone replacement therapy, and NaturaLyte and GranuFlo dialysis products.

Mr. Laker is admitted to practice in the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Indiana and the state of Indiana.
