Philadelphia, PA (PRWEB) June 19, 2006
Anapol, Schwartz, Weiss, Cohan, Feldman & Smalley, P.C. announces that Michael H. Monheit, Esq. has joined the firm as managing attorney for all Internet marketing activities. He will be a member of the firm's marketing committee and computers committee.
Monheit has a broad base of experience including serving on the executive committee of Multi District Litigation 1148 and as co-lead counsel in class action litigation involving childhood lead paint poisoning against the Philadelphia Housing Authority. Monheit also has extensive non-legal experience as the former CEO of an Internet professional services business and a chemical industry consulting business. According to Monheit, "the Internet has become the number one way that consumers search for information about dangerous products that have caused them harm."
"With the recent recall of Bausch & Lomb Renu contact lens solution due to fungal keratitis eye infections, the timing of adding Michael to our firm could not have been better," said Sol Weiss, Esq., a shareholder at Anapol Schwartz. "We have already received over 150 ReNu lawsuit inquiries from the work Michael has done for the firm. His capabilities with the Internet will allow us to move to the forefront of educating the public about dangerous products through our Internet presence. Michael has established himself as one of the top attorneys in the country in his understanding of how the public uses the Internet to perform research about dangerous pharmaceutical products that have caused serious injuries."
According to Anapol Schwartz partner Kevin Marciano, Esq., "the firm expects to file its first ReNu lawsuit against Bausch & Lomb, Inc. (NYSE:BOL) as early as next week. On April 13, 2006 Bausch & Lomb warned the public that Renu could cause eye damage. However, we believe that Bausch and Lomb should have recalled the product much sooner." This fungal infection of the eye called "fusarium keratitis" is a serious and painful corneal disease and can cause scaring of the cornea and loss of vision.
