Mesothelioma Lawyers from LPK Featured in New York Magazine’s List of New York Area’s Best Lawyers
Three mesothelioma lawyers from Levy Phillips & Konigsberg, LLP, are featured in New York Area’s Best Lawyers list published in today's issue of New York Magazine.
NEW YORK, New York, July 2, 2007 - In today's issue, New York Magazine features mesothelioma lawyers Stanley J. Levy, Robert I. Komitor, and Jerome H. Block of Levy Phillips & Konigsberg, LLP, on its list of "New York Area’s Best Lawyers".
The list published by New York Magazine comprises New York area lawyers who are also listed in the 2007 edition of Best Lawyers in America. According to the magazine, the "Best Lawyers" list is the "gold standard of reliability and integrity in lawyer ratings". Lawyers are selected through an "exhaustive survey" in which lawyers "confidentially evaluate their professional peers". The 2007 edition of Best Lawyers "is based upon more than 2 million evaluations of lawyers by other lawyers."
Attorneys Stanley J. Levy, Robert I. Komitor, and Jerome H. Block practice with the nationally renowned mesothelioma law firm of Levy Phillips & Konigsberg, LLP. The selection of these three mesothelioma lawyers - all born in different generations - reflects the long history of success the firm has had in asbestos and mesothelioma litigation and the valuable role of mentoring in the law firm’s ability to reproduce top lawyers generation upon generation.
Mr. Levy has been a pioneer in the effort to obtain compensation for asbestos and mesothelioma victims in America, filing some of the nation’s earliest asbestos lawsuits in the 1970s. He litigated many of the first groundbreaking asbestos and mesothelioma lawsuits that established the knowledge of the dangers of asbestos exposure that were known within the asbestos industry, but kept from workers. Mr. Levy’s trail-blazing work has paved the way for many thousands of victims of asbestos and mesothelioma to obtain financial compensation nationwide. Born and raised in Brooklyn, NY, Mr. Levy graduated Columbia Law School in 1959 and served for four years as Assistant Attorney General for the State of New York.
Mr. Komitor, who was mentored by Mr. Levy, has become one of the most formidable mesothelioma lawyers in the nation. Mr. Komitor has won many multi-million dollar jury verdicts in asbestos and mesothelioma lawsuits including several verdicts in excess of $10 Million. Mr. Komitor’s jury verdicts include a $19.5 Million jury verdict – the largest jury verdict ever handed down against a manufacturer of insulated cable. Mr. Komitor grew up on Long Island, and is a 1980 graduate from Hofstra School of Law. He teaches jury trial skills to law students as part of the NITA (National Institute of Trial Advocacy) program. Mr. Komitor is a frequent lecturer on topics relating to mass tort litigation, particularly mesothelioma and asbestos.
Mr. Block, at the age of thirty-five, is among the youngest lawyers ever selected to the Best Lawyers List. After graduating law school in 1997 and clerking for a United States District Court Judge, Mr. Block was mentored into a prominent trial lawyer by attorneys Levy and Komitor, as well as the other accomplished partners of the law firm. While developing a specialty in mesothelioma litigation, Mr. Block has become nationally known for his jury verdicts in mesothelioma and asbestos lung cancer lawsuits. Mr. Block’s jury verdicts include a $22 Million mesothelioma compensation award on behalf of two New York mesothelioma victims, as well as the first ever asbestos compensation verdict against the welding industry.

If you or your family member has been diagnosed with mesothelioma, you should get in touch with a mesothelioma lawyer as early as possible to determine if you have a mesothelioma case and to:
- Preserve your rights to bring a legal action against the responsible parties within the limited time frame allowed by law, known as statute of limitations;
- Obtain maximum compensation in your case by being able to:
- Preserve evidence and establish facts of the asbestos exposure while the claimant is still alive and able to provide information;
- File and resolve a lawsuit against the responsible parties before they file for bankruptcy or, if they already have, to obtain compensation before their bankruptcy trust funds run out of money;
- Expedite your case, as courts tend to give higher priority to mesothelioma lawsuits where the claimant is still alive.
Find out whether you have a case by speaking to one of our experienced mesothelioma lawyers via our 24/7 toll-free hotline at 1-800-MESO-LAW (1-800-637-6529) or by submitting an email inquiry (see form above). Our attorneys will be quick to respond to you and happy to answer all of your questions.
While our offices are located in the states of New York, New Jersey, and Georgia, many of our mesothelioma lawyers are licensed to practice law in a number of U.S. states and have the capability and extensive experience of representing mesothelioma clients throughout the United States.
