Toxic Torts

The attorneys of Riley, Hewitt, Witte & Romano, P.C. have been successfully defending manufacturers, distributors and suppliers in toxic tort lawsuits nationwide for nearly three decades. The frequency of toxic tort cases has multiplied over the years, involving a large number of manufacturing defendants with a wide array of issues, multi-party and multi-district litigation. We have cut through these issues and developed sound strategies for a variety of clients, including Fortune 100 companies, in cases involving exposure to asbestos, silica and other substances. We have served as national and regional coordinating counsel for companies involved in mass torts litigation.


Our firm has developed a state-of-the-art database and other technological resources to maintain, monitor and utilize information on thousands of cases in a cost-effective manner. We consistently handle voluminous discovery involved in these toxic tort cases. We are able to offer to our clients cost savings by sharing costs for various activities, including attending depositions and review of medical records, while maintaining the integrity of each client's individual defense strategy.


Our attorneys are well-versed in the medical and scientific developments necessary to preparing the defense of the toxic tort cases. We have a vast amount of experience in working with the expert witnesses involved in the litigation and we are effective in the evaluation and cross-examination of the opposing witnesses.


Whether our strategy includes aggressive litigation and/or diplomatic settlement negotiations, our goal is to achieve the best outcome for each client based on the circumstances of each case and the client’s input.
