As a top-notch asbestos litigation firm with a national reputation, we know that our success is rooted in our complete commitment to the clients we serve. We want the absolute best for the families we meet with, and we will devote countless hours and unlimited resources to pursue justice for you. Here is our promise to you:
You will not be talking to a paralegal, case manager, or junior attorney. One of our firm’s law partners will be meeting with you personally to discuss your case. And that top attorney will always be available to speak with you and your family throughout the claims process.
We understand the toll that mesothelioma can take on a patient and a family, and we will do everything we can to make the process of pursuing compensation less taxing. Our dedicated lawyers will come to your home or health care facility, wherever you and your family prefer to meet. With offices based in New York, our committed attorneys travel to meet with clients across the United States.
With decades of experience working with hundreds of mesothelioma patients, we understand exactly how these claims work and what it takes to win. Even if you don’t know how you were exposed to asbestos, our attorneys can quickly help by going over your work and family history. We will discuss your personal history to identify clues as to what companies should be held liable for the pain you and your family are going through.
We are genuine in our concern for our clients, and that compassion motivates us to fight aggressively for the full and fair compensation you and your family deserve. Our fierceness in the courtroom and in negotiations has led to more than $1 billion in compensation for our deserving clients.
We know that coping with a mesothelioma diagnosis is a full-time job. And you can trust that we are working overtime to pursue the compensation you and your family need to get the best care possible. Whenever you need to talk or have questions, we are here. Our partners give their cellphone numbers our clients, so you have a direct line to us and are never left wondering what is happening with your case. Even if we are in court at the time you call, we will get back to you within 12 hours.
If you are ready to discuss how we can help with your asbestos claim or other type of personal injury case, contact us now. Our consultations are always free, and we take these cases on a contingency fee basis, so you only pay legal fees if and when we recover compensation for you.
At Belluck & Fox, we have spent decades building a stellar reputation as a successful asbestos litigation firm. However, our compassionate team of New York personal injury lawyers also use their considerable talents to take on a variety of complicated cases. Some of the cases we handle include:

Paddling for Mesothelioma
Once again this year, attorney Joseph W. Belluck and others from the New York law firm of Belluck & Fox, LLP will kayak 16 miles to raise awareness and donations to fight mesothelioma, an aggressive cancer caused by asbestos exposure.
Belluck, a partner at Belluck & Fox, LLP, which concentrates on representing victims of mesothelioma, and approximately 130 others will participate in the Kayaking 4 Meso event, to be held September 12, on the Hudson River. Kayakers will paddle from Schuylerville, NY through Stillwater, where they will pick up other kayakers, and finish at the Mechanicville boat dock.

Mark Wells, whose daughter Linda was diagnosed with peritoneal mesothelioma at age 16, organized the annual Kayaking 4 Meso event to help educate the public about the dangers of asbestos and to raise money for mesothelioma research. Peritoneal mesothelioma affects the lining of the abdominal cavity and is less common than pleural mesothelioma, that affects the lungs. Linda has been battling the disease for approximately 10 years, enduring six major surgeries and several rounds of chemotherapy, her father said.
Mesothelioma is a cancer caused by inhaling or swallowing asbestos fibers. There is as yet no known cure and researchers are seeking more effective treatments to manage the disease. Approximately 2,500 to 3,000 people in the United States are diagnosed with mesothelioma each year.
Money raised will be donated to the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation, a national non-profit “dedicated to eradicating the life-ending and vicious effects of mesothelioma.”
Belluck & Fox, LLP is one of the sponsors of the event.
Visit the Kayaking 4 Meso website for more information and to register for the event.
