Our Goal is
YOUR PEACE OF MIND
We Provide Aggressive Representation and Compassionate Support for Mesothelioma and Asbestos Cancer Victims
Early diagnosis and treatment can keep asbestos cancer at bay, perhaps for years. Unfortunately, mesothelioma is often not detected until advanced stages, when surgery, radiation and chemotherapy have limited impact or cannot be tolerated because of the person's weakened condition.
We understand how physically painful and emotionally devastating this disease is. Attorney Michael Throneberry personally experienced this ordeal, from his father-in-law's diagnosis and death from mesothelioma in a span of 16 months. He is intimately familiar with the cruel progression of the disease and the toll it takes on the person and the family.
Our goal is supporting clients in getting a diagnosis and getting treatment for the cancer, its symptoms and the personal aftermath. We work fast and diligently to secure compensation for the medical care and financial impact.Pain Management for Mesothelioma

Mesothelioma pain can also undermine the person's ability - and will - to fight the cancer. Suppressed appetite means less nutrition, which in turn leads to exhaustion, inactivity and depression. As this cycle continues, a person may become more vulnerable to illness and infection, and less able to tolerate the necessary cancer treatments.Emotional Support To Help Ease The Pain
Family emotional support is just as important as treatment and medication in dealing with pain. Fear, anxiety and depression can magnify pain felt by a mesothelioma patient, and by improving overall health these symptoms can be minimized.
Mesothelioma care should focus on:
A diagnosis of mesothelioma is frightening, and the emotional reactions can be counterproductive when time is of the essence. It is important for victims to come to terms with the illness to face treatment, and for family members to understand the psychological stages and symptoms and support the person through the process:
