A Track Record You Can Trust

At Ashcraft & Gerel, we have the resources needed to handle even the most severe disaster cases. We are fearless in and out of the courtroom, even when we are battling a powerful corporate defendant. Regardless of the size of the defendant or the complexity of the case, we come prepared and ready to win. Our firm has successfully taken on defendants including General Electric and Massey Energy, recovering millions of dollars for our clients and their loved ones.

Our Approach to Disaster Cases

In every disaster case our firm has litigated, we have always prioritized our clients’ well-being. To ensure that we build every case properly, we work closely with leading subject-matter experts whose opinions and guidance can help us shape our approach.

For example, in the Massey Mine case, we needed specialized knowledge of mine ventilation and engineering. Our Baltimore disaster litigation attorneys consulted with mining experts to give our clients a leg up. Experts like these are key in building a strong and effective case for disaster victims.

Though our firm is well-established, sizable, and connected with valuable resources, we still maintain a sharp focus on delivering high-quality, caring attention to every client. We are compassionate and willing to provide the personalized service that you deserve.
