John Simmons founded his firm in 1999 with seven employees and a focus on asbestos litigation. John has overseen some of the biggest verdicts and settlements in the history of asbestos litigation. In one of the largest jury verdicts in the history of the litigation the firm obtained a $250 million verdict on behalf of an Indiana steelworker.
The firm’s track record of success continues today, not only in mesothelioma litigation, but also in other areas of complex litigation. Since that first case, the firm has recovered more than $9 billion in settlements and verdicts for thousands of clients nationwide under John’s leadership.
