    Attorney Profile

    Vin Greene works on behalf of victims of lead poisoning, asbestos-related diseases and defective medical products.

    He represents children and families poisoned by exposure to lead paint and pigments in trials, negotiations and settlements, including achieving a rare jury verdict and compensatory damages in 2015 for a Rhode Island woman who suffered cognitive defects due to lead exposure as a child. Vin’s legal efforts led to his critical role in defeating tort reform legislation in Rhode Island, utilizing testimony, analysis and grassroots outreach to push passage of a bill that helped prevent childhood lead poisoning without infringing on victims’ rights. For his numerous efforts and accomplishments, the Childhood Lead Action Project honored him with its Beyond the Call of Duty Award in 2001.

    Vin also represents workers and families suffering from mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases as a result of occupational, environmental or household exposure to asbestos. He has managed asbestos cases and negotiations on behalf of hundreds of individuals, including arguing before the Supreme Courts of Ohio and Rhode Island, as well as Ohio Appellate Courts.

    In addition to his toxic exposure casework, Vin litigates on behalf of patients who suffered severe health complications caused by allegedly defective mesh products, including Composix® Kugel® Mesh patches and other hernia mesh products, as well as transvaginal mesh.

    Active in the legal community, Vin served in 2015 as President of the Rhode Island Association for Justice. He is the current Treasurer for the Rhode Island Center for Justice, a non-profit law center advocating for workers’ rights and other public interest issues. Vin began working with Motley Rice attorneys in 1997 on the landmark litigation against the tobacco industry and medical malpractice cases. Named a Motley Rice member in 2008, Vin is recognized as an AV® rated attorney by Martindale-Hubbell®.
