Toxic Tort

MehaffyWeber defends major corporations in products liability and premises liability suits brought by plaintiffs alleging personal injury and property damage from environmental and occupational exposure to a variety of products. The firm has extensive experience in defending claims involving products which allegedly contain such toxic substances as asbestos, silica, coke dust, talc, cadmium, chromium, manganese, beryllium, butadiene, formaldehyde, chlordane, vinyl chloride, various herbicides, and benzene, among others. The firm uses up to date technology and efficient management practices to successfully defend large dockets. We recognize that some cases should be tried and we welcome the opportunity to try the case and our attorneys have extensive trial experience.

In addition to the firm's extensive involvement in major toxic tort cases that include large numbers of plaintiffs and defendants, MehaffyWeber presently coordinates the regional defense for several manufacturers and represents other clients on a statewide basis. Since the implementation of asbestos and silica MDL statutes in Texas, Sandra Clark and Barbara J. Barron, members of the court advisory committees, have taken a leadership role in these MDL's with Barbara Barron leading both MDL's in a statutorily required dismissal effort to clear Texas courts of "inactive" asbestos and silica cases.

    I have dealt with multiple attorneys at Mehaffy Weber over a period of approximately 40 years. I have had both professional and client dealings as well as experience with personal legal needs with this firm. Mehaffy Weber consistently provides excellent service delivered with the highest level of professionalism. The attorneys and staff are experts in their fields with vast and diverse experience in most areas of the law. They have an outstanding reputation both individually and as a firm.

Diversity

We are committed to diversity in our workplace. Diversity is a strength that enables us to bring a broader perspective to the problems faced by our clients. It also promotes a higher quality of work and enriches our work environment. Accordingly, it is our goal to foster and maintain a firm-wide culture that supports diversity in order that all employees and attorneys feel welcome, included, valued, supported and able to succeed. We believe that a diverse workforce makes us a better law firm.

We recruit, retain and promote attorneys who are examples of diversity. In addition to supporting the professional careers of women and minorities, we believe that our clients benefit from the varied perspectives and life experiences that all individuals bring to our firm. Since the late 1980's, women have been elected members of the firm's management and compensation committees. Today, many of the leadership roles are filled by female attorneys who represent almost 1/3 of the equity shareholders of the firm.

For more than 15 years, MehaffyWeber has been proud to co-host with DuPont a minority job fair for hundreds of law students from Texas and neighboring states. These students are provided the opportunity to interview with law firms and service providers for summer associate positions and regular associate positions with these firms. Our attorneys regularly volunteer in our minority communities.
