Our Trial Attorneys Focus on Asbestos Litigation
Asbestos is a toxic substance that was widely used in industrial, commercial, and even household materials for many years. Companies knew that asbestos posed a danger to people’s health, but they failed to warn the public. Now, decades later, thousands of people each year are diagnosed with mesothelioma, lung cancer, asbestosis and other life-threatening asbestos diseases.

Brief History & Key Features of Greenpoint (Little Poland)
Originally a farming community back in the 1700s, Greenpoint transformed into a Polish immigrant community in the 1800s, populated by factories and plants that began utilizing asbestos in increasing levels throughout the early and mid-20th century.
Greenpoint is now having to reinvent itself as traditional factory work and longshoremen jobs are in decline. In addition, the town underwent a long period of rezoning back in the early 2000s, which was met with skepticism for gentrification and the harsh effects it would have on the low and working class.
Now, trendy restaurants, bookshops, parks, coffee shops and nightclubs are making Greenpoint a hip place to hang out and live, according to Trip Savvy. Greenpoint has also been described by Paste Magazine as a “well-kept secret.”
The neighborhood is known for the majestic St. Anthony of Padua Church, McCarren Park, the Episcopal Church of the Ascension and other landmarks within the Greenpoint Historic District.
