T. Barton French, Jr.

T. Barton French, Jr.: Attorney with Maune, Raichle, Hartley, French & Mudd, LLC


As a mesothelioma lawyer, Bart French has extensive experience working with victims of asbestos exposure and is committed to helping his clients achieve justice. For the last 10 years, Bart has focused his legal practice exclusively on mesothelioma cases. He has served well over 100 clients, in individual lawsuits, to date. His clients with this horrific disease have ranged in age from 16 to 92, and have come from nearly every state.

Bart has served his clients from start to finish - meeting the client and his or her family at the beginning, investigating asbestos exposures and conducting all pre-trial and pre-settlement activities, negotiating settlements with many asbestos-defendant companies, and taking the case through trial.

Each client's case is unique because no two people have been exposed to asbestos in precisely the same way. Bart's experience with many clients having various exposures allows him to tailor his representation to best serve the client. As a sample but by no means exhaustive list, Bart successfully has represented clients with exposures including:
•Automotive (asbestos in brakes, clutches and gaskets)
•Workplace (often called premises exposure through asbestos insulation and many other asbestos materials)
•Naval and shipyard
•Oilfields, refineries and chemical plants
•Trades involving sheet metal, electrical, and pipe fitting work
•Home Exposures such as drywall joint compound, flooring and insulation

Bart and his wife Tanya have three children. When not working or spending time with his family, Bart is often cycling!


Bart began his legal career as a judicial law clerk for U.S. Magistrate Judge Lawrence Leavitt in Las Vegas, Nevada. He worked as a trial attorney in the Federal Public Defender's in Nevada and later Denver, CO. He then worked at two litigation law firms in Denver and near St. Louis. He is a member of the American Bar Association, the American Association for Justice, and a 2007 graduate of the Trial Lawyers College. He has active bar memberships in Missouri, Illinois, Colorado and Nevada.
