John T.

I was recommended to Serling & Abramson by one of my uncles. They were very organized and very detailed. Everyone who I’ve worked with at their office has been great and really respectful. They helped through all the legal and technical ends and helped me recognize the asbestos danger that was not apparent from the places that I worked.

I had never been through the legal process before, and I couldn’t ask for any nicer and more helpful people. They really know their business. I think that, for what I went through, my case went extremely well. Eric and I went to a deposition, and it was really good having him with me giving me support and helping me through the process.

I think the financial compensation for what happened to me was really good. There are so many manufacturers and businesses involved, and they did the research to find out who was responsible and went after them. The research they did was extraordinary. I’m really, really grateful to everyone there.

About Us

The Serling & Abramson law firm was founded in 1970 by Michael B. Serling. Mr. Serling was the first attorney in Michigan to file a wrongful death action on behalf of the family of a mesothelioma victim. In 1975, a young widow of an asbestos insulator contacted Mr. Serling concerning her husband who had died at age 52. She was left with two young children and was trying to raise them on a $4 per hour job. The extremely gratifying feeling of success in prosecuting the case and securing a sizable settlement for the widow and her children inspired Mr. Serling to continue this work.

Michael soon realized that it was more than just asbestos insulators who were falling victim to asbestos-related diseases. It soon became apparent that mesothelioma and lung cancer were occurring in virtually every building trade and many industrial settings. He dedicated his career to securing justice for all victims affected by asbestos exposure. Today, over 50 years later, Serling and Abramson are still representing victims of asbestos-related diseases, such as mesothelioma, lung cancer, and asbestosis.
