HOUSTON – Trial attorney Richard Meadow, who leads the New York office of The Lanier Law Firm, is serving as Co-Chair of an upcoming national conference on asbestos litigation.

The law firm is one of the lead sponsors for “Trying an Asbestos Case – How to Get the ‘W’,” an informative program for the nation’s top asbestos attorneys taking place on Jan 25, 2011, at the Hub Cira Centre in Philadelphia. The conference includes presentations and panel discussions featuring dozens of the country’s leading practitioners in asbestos law.

The Lanier Law Firm founder Mark Lanier will headline a panel discussion on opening statements, including insights from three sitting judges on strategies for compelling openings, common mistakes to avoid and paths to take for certain kinds of cases. Dr. Robert E. Leone, an accomplished attorney and in-house trial psychologist at The Lanier Law Firm, will participate in a panel discussion on “Preparing the Plaintiff and Defendant for Deposition and Trial.”

“Unfortunately, thousands of people continue to be affected by the dangers of asbestos,” says Mr. Lanier. “I am proud that our firm is helping lead the charge in helping these victims, and this conference is a wonderful example of lawyers joining together to better represent our clients.”
