Share Article

Baron and Budd mesothelioma lawyers have been dedicated to Protecting What's Right for mesothelioma patients for nearly 35 years.

Earlier this year, legal publication Texas Lawyer recognized the mesothelioma law firm of Baron and Budd for achieving the top two product liability verdicts in Texas in 2011. Both of the verdicts were for mesothelioma lawsuits. Mesothelioma lawyer John Langdoc headed trial efforts in both lawsuits, which were reached on behalf of mesothelioma patients and their families. The list is compiled by VerdictSearch, an independent entity owned by American Lawyer Media (ALM), and published by local legal newspaper Texas Lawyer. The full list appeared in a recent supplement of Texas Lawyer.

“We work tirelessly on every one of our mesothelioma lawsuits,” said John Langdoc, mesothelioma attorney at Baron and Budd. “It is really great to see that the hard work for some of these great families resulted in the top Texas defective product verdicts in 2011."

A jury awarded the Henderson family $9 million in Henderson v. Dow Chemical, which was selected as the top Texas product liability verdict in 2011. The mesothelioma lawsuit was filed on behalf of the late Mr. Henderson, his wife and two daughters. Mesothelioma lawyers John Langdoc and Alana Kalantzakis of Baron and Budd represented the family throughout the mesothelioma lawsuit.

An $8.4 million mesothelioma verdict in Gensler v. Hercules, Inc. was selected as the second highest 2011 product liability verdict in Texas. This mesothelioma lawsuit was brought on behalf of the Mr. Gensler, deceased, and his widow. This verdict is thought to be the first asbestos related verdict reached against the company Hercules for exposure to asbestos at a Dow Chemical plant. Mesothelioma lawyers John Langdoc and Alana Kalantzakis represented the Genslers throughout the mesothelioma lawsuit.

Baron and Budd was one of the first asbestos law firms to successfully handle a mesothelioma lawsuit in and continues to fight for mesothelioma and asbestos victims today. Throughout the firm’s nearly 40 year history, Baron and Budd has achieved more than 100 verdicts for asbestos patients and numerous settlements. The firm has achieved one of the highest verdicts of its kind in Texas: $55 million for an El Paso mesothelioma patient and his family after being exposed to asbestos as a construction worker.
