Filing a Mesothelioma Claim

About Bergman Draper Oslund Udo

Since 1995, the lawyers at Bergman Draper Oslund Udo (BDOU) have been fighting to protect the interests of families facing the challenges of mesothelioma. Unlike most other legal firms, asbestos law is all we do.

After decades of investigating asbestos cases such as Puget Sound Naval Shipyard, we’ve built an extensive proprietary database with information on local shipyards, major industrial facilities (including Hanford), military bases, paper mills, oil refineries, and power plants throughout Washington, Oregon, Idaho, and Alaska. We also understand the particular circumstances faced by veterans.

The firm’s impressive record speaks for itself. The lawyers at BDOU have been recognized repeatedly by their peers as Super Lawyers for many years running. We are a regional firm representing each of our clients on an individual basis and have collected over $900 million for our clients.

The lawyers of BDOU are devoted to obtaining fair compensation for our clients. We pursue cases with zeal and passion, and we treat our clients with mutual trust, respect, and compassion.

Our Relationships

For each family we represent, we create a small team of professionals who treat you with dignity and respect. We’re a smaller firm and our clients like it that way. Each family we represent receives the kind of personalized attention that’s hard to deliver once a firm grows too big or branches out into too many types of law practice.

Case Stories Testimonials

Client Testimonials

Your company has been working on my family’s behalf for over two years now. As with anyone we love who is no longer with us, we try to remember all of the good times. With my father, that is the case, and even with his passing from a very harsh cancer, I am blessed to be helped out by your company.
I would like to thank you and your staff for your continued efforts and support in assisting our family with our father’s wrongful death due to his exposure to asbestos resulting in mesothelioma. Your firm’s relentless pursuit for justice is greatly appreciated.
Thank you for all the help that you have provided me throughout the last 18 years. I miss Dan every day. He was the love of my life for which I am eternally grateful. The work you did on behalf of Dan and his family was appreciated and helpful tremendously. I was able to retire at 62 because I was debt free, and your work also afforded Nate and Esther the luxury of being debt free after college graduation.
It is hard for me to express the gratitude I feel in regard to those of you who called when you heard of my husband’s death. Your thoughtfulness and kind expressions of sympathy will never be forgotten.
It means so much to me and my family that you took the time to listen to my Dad’s concerns and emotions about what was happening to him. The funds coming in have been an unbelievable help to another family member in a health crisis.
