We resolve each case ourselves and do not refer our clients to other law firms. However, other attorneys routinely trust us to take care of their clients by referring cases to Thornton Law Firm that they consider too complex to handle themselves.
Compassion for our clients; dedication to the cause
Through four decades of practicing law, we have treated clients with respect and compassion. Listening carefully, responding to all questions, and being accessible when clients call are ways we show our clients that we care. Dedication to building the best possible case is how we put our clients’ best interests first. Fighting aggressively for our clients' rights to full and fair compensation is how we succeed. If we take your case, you pay no out-of-pocket legal fees until you win a settlement or award—this is our commitment to believing in our clients. Thornton Law Firm has legal experience that is wide, diverse and includes litigation related to —
- Mesothelioma/asbestos — The firm's mesothelioma attorneys, often working with co-counsel, have obtained significant settlements for clients suffering from asbestos-related diseases.
- Construction accidents — Injured workers and their families have been able to gain financial security as a result of the firm's successful efforts in both negotiated settlements and jury verdicts at trial.
