Massachusetts has a proud tradition of paper-making, and many generations of families often worked in the local pulp and paper mill. Many of those hard-working mill workers are only beginning to experience mesothelioma’s devastating symptoms due to the numerous asbestos-containing materials involved in the production process and the dusty environment that often carried airborne asbestos fibers. Shepard O’Donnell has helped hundreds of clients and their families get the compensation they deserve. Our clients include millwrights, plumbers, pipefitters, machine operators, technicians, laborers, and maintenance mechanics exposed to dangerous asbestos fibers in Massachusetts paper mills during the 1960s–1980s.

We have particular experience with mesothelioma lawsuits involving the MeadWestvaco Willow Mill in South Lee, Massachusetts, and the Schweitzer (now Kimberly Clark) Centennial Mill, Columbia Mill, Eagle Mill, Greylock Mill, and Niagara Mill. We also have represented several workers from the Brown Company paper and pulp mills in Berlin and Gorham, New Hampshire.
