Thornton Law Firm was founded in 1978 by Michael Thornton and two other attorneys doing groundbreaking work for victims of mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases. One of the largest injury litigation firms in New England, the firm has 21 attorneys representing thousands of clients in a wide variety of plaintiff-side work from our offices in Massachusetts, California and Colorado. For four decades, Thornton Law Firm has fought the asbestos industry, the lead paint industry, the tobacco industry, manufacturers of dangerous chemicals, pesticide makers, big Pharma, big banks, and insurance giants. Thornton Law Firm was one of the first firms in the county to represent families of children born with birth defects caused by chemical exposures in the workplace, and has been instrumental in securing multimillion dollar recoveries for families with children who suffered serious birth defects from their parents’ exposure to chemicals and agricultural pesticides.
