We had at least three members pop up in the local news today! (Apologies to anyone we missed in advance.) Here’s a roundup:
Paul Schneiderman: Paul is raising money for cancer research at Fred Hutch! He says, “I believe there is a lot of work to do in the community, and lawyers can and do good community-focused work in their communities. I joined the group because combating cancer and other serious diseases are a good cause.”
Vonda Sargent: Vonda is representing a 70 year old African-American man named William Wingate, who was arrested last summer when an officer accused him of wielding a golf club he used as a cane. He was not given water for 8 hours after his arrest.
Matthew Bergman: Matthew represented Ramona Brandes, whose mother Barbara died of mesothelioma, which is known to be caused by asbestos exposure. Matthew’s firm said the defendants “and/or their predecessors -in-interests” had “manufactured, sold or distributed asbestos-containing products or products that were used in conjunction with asbestos,” and sought damages for negligence, conspiracy, willful or wanton misconduct, and product liability.
We are proud of the work our members are doing to seek justice in their communities.
