We pursue compensation from the manufacturers of the asbestos containing products that injured our veterans, not from from the government or the military.

Many Veterans Have Been Affected by Asbestos

Veterans and mesothelioma have an unfortunate relationship. Those who served our country between the 1930’s and 1970’s are at a higher risk of developing asbestos-related respiratory conditions and cancers like mesothelioma. This is because the use of asbestos during those years was common in the military.


Asbestos Exposure-Military

Shepard O’Donnell successfully litigated a case on behalf of a 75 year-old U.S. Army veteran who served as a crew chief of Army aircraft at multiple bases in Vietnam. The litigation team at Shepard O’Donnell was able to obtain a seven-figure settlement for the client and his wife after extensive work getting the case ready for a trial.


When pursuing litigation, working with an attorney who has a reputation for results, compassionate representation, and responsive communication channels is a must. The lawyers at Shepard Law have helped hundreds of clients, many of whom were Veterans, diagnosed with mesothelioma. Military veterans who were exposed to asbestos during their service but did not become sick until years later may have the right to file a mesothelioma lawsuit.
