Samuel Meirowitz obtained what is believed to be the first multi-million dollar asbestos verdict seen in more than two decades in a New York federal court. He was able to convince the jury to hold a boiler manufacturer responsible for 60 percent of the $3.8 million awarded. In his role as legal advisor and contributor for Mesotheliomafund.com, Samuel writes and reviews information for accuracy, shares pertinent research and findings and assists mesothelioma victims with their legal needs.

Inside the courtroom, he has won multimillion-dollar cases helping victims who have suffered at the hands of corporate greed. In a breakthrough asbestos case in 2013, Samuel won a $3.8 million verdict on behalf of his clients against a boiler equipment manufacturer. The award, one of the first multimillion-dollar asbestos verdicts in New York in decades, was later upheld in appeals court.
