Asbestos poisoning can take a serious physical and financial toll on someone’s life that of his or her loved ones as well. As an attorney at Goldberg, Persky & White, P.C., Leif J. Ocheltree has spent his career advocating for people who have suffered a personal injury or illness related to asbestos exposure. An expert in mesothelioma lawsuits, Mr. Ocheltree has helped steelworkers, tradesmen, and many others who worked with asbestos products and developed lung cancer, colon cancer, and pleural and peritoneal mesothelioma as a result. He also represents people throughout the state of Pennsylvania in toxic torts and occupational disease matters.

In 2001, Mr. Ocheltree received a Bachelor of Arts from Washington & Jefferson College, going on to earn a Juris Doctor from the University of Pittsburgh School of Law in 2004.

Licensed to practice in West Virginia and Pennsylvania, Mr. Ocheltree understands that every case is unique. He has in-depth conversations with clients to fully grasp the ways in which their injury has affected their well-being, assessing the quantifiable and intangible losses. Though the goal is to reach a resolution quickly and, if possible, outside the courtroom, Mr. Ocheltree is prepared to go to trial to ensure clients receive the compensation they are owed. He is admitted to practice before the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of West Virginia.

To offer people the most thorough representation possible, Mr. Ocheltree is involved with a number of legal organizations through which he has access to invaluable tools and up-to-date information. He is a member of The West Virginia State Bar, the American Association for Justice, the Pennsylvania Bar Association, the Allegheny County Bar Association and the American Bar Association.

If you are seeking an asbestos attorney, Mr. Ocheltree has the knowledge, experience, and drive to ensure you and your family receive the compensation you deserve.
