At Richardson, Patrick, Westbrook & Brickman, our attorneys pioneered asbestos litigation. In the 1970s, our lawyers were among the first to successfully hold asbestos manufacturers responsible for the harm their products caused. But, it is more than our firm's legacy, it is our clients' legacy.
We have seen, firsthand, the devastating impact mesothelioma has on individuals and their families. We help our clients find justice, pay for medical expenses and provide a solid financial foundation for their families.
The truth is, mesothelioma cases are complicated. The disease can take decades to manifest, making pinpointing the asbestos exposure and responsible parties a challenge. If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with this disease, you need experienced attorneys who have a track record of success in mesothelioma claims.
Our firm is known by our clients, peers and adversaries as one of the premier asbestos and mesothelioma law firms in the country. Our lawyers have litigated some of the most significant cases in asbestos litigation history. They have dedicated their careers to helping hardworking Americans stand up to asbestos manufacturers who knew about the harmful effects of their products yet actively fought and resisted helping workers who developed mesothelioma and other occupational lung diseases.
When you hire our firm you are sending a clear message: Negligent and reckless companies will not get away with the harm they caused and they will pay for their bad acts. You are helping future generations by preventing large companies from taking advantage of your children and grandchildren, as they did to you.

Our attorneys firmly believe that the more you know the better position you are in to advocate for your rights. If you or a loved one is one of the 2,000–3,000 people afflicted yearly with mesothelioma — an insidious cancer caused by exposure to asbestos — you should know three things:
You are not alone. Mesothelioma was preventable. Millions were exposed. Thousands have suffered needlessly — and many more will — from contact with asbestos, the only known cause of this cancer.
You have options. There is a long history of courts awarding victims substantial compensation in properly presented cases.
The lawyer you choose matters. For over 40 years, the attorneys at RPWB have advocated for asbestos exposure victims. We have been instrumental in obtaining impressive verdicts and settlements in more than 30 states and the U.S. Virgin Islands.
Mesothelioma was preventable if asbestos companies and employers had not chosen personal profit above all else. You deserve to be fully compensated for your suffering.
To discuss your rights and your legal claims in detail, contact our firm. Consultations are always free, and your case will be handled on a contingency basis. You will pay us nothing until we obtain compensation on your behalf.
From our three South Carolina offices — Charleston, Mount Pleasant and Barnwell — as well as Edwardsville, Illinois, we represent individuals and families throughout the U.S. in their fight for rightful compensation.
