Baron and Budd's Mesothelioma Lawyer John Langdoc Recognized in 2013 Legal 500

John Langdoc Recognized for Achieving $48 Million Verdict for Mesothelioma Patient, Largest Mesothelioma Verdict of 2012

John Langdoc, mesothelioma lawyer at Baron and Budd, was recognized in the 2013 edition of the Legal 500, a prestigious list of top law firms in the country, for achieving a $48 million verdict on behalf of California mesothelioma patient Bobbie Izell and his wife. This verdict was the largest mesothelioma verdict in the nation in 2012. It was also selected as one of the Top 100 Verdicts in the nation by legal publication The National Law Journal.

“All of our attorneys work hard every day for their clients and truly, they should all be recognized for their outstanding work,” said mesothelioma lawyer John Langdoc. “I am very honored to appear on the same list as some of the most accomplished and respected attorneys in the country.”

In the case, a Los Angeles Superior Court jury found Dow Chemical subsidiary Union Carbide Corp., Riverside Cement, CalPortland and others responsible for Izell’s mesothelioma, a rare but incurable cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. The family was represented by mesothelioma lawyers John Langdoc and Christine Tamer at trial.

Each year, the Legal 500 comprises a list of the top law firms across the country in a variety of categories. Independent researchers conduct exhaustive interviews of potential law firms, and only a handful are selected to the list. Baron and Budd has been selected to the list each year since 2008 as a top tier firm in the area of mass torts and class action litigation on behalf of plaintiffs.
