Matthew Bergman is a founding partner of the firm with strong roots in the Washington state and Pacific Northwest community. He’s a top-rated and well-respected attorney with deep experience with the local court judges. Matthew devoted his career to mesothelioma victims. He has advocated before Congress for asbestos exposure victim rights and is an active philanthropist. He has successfully tried many cases, including a $4.3 billion dollar global settlement in which he was one of seven attorneys who served on a committee representing over 100 Northwest families, 25 of those victims being from central and eastern Washington and 10 in Spokane, who were exposed to asbestos. Dresser Industries, a subsidiary of Texas-based Halliburton, distributed these asbestos products to shipyards, power plants and industrial facilities.



Glenn Draper is strongly committed to veterans with mesothelioma as a veteran of the U.S. Army and the son of a Navy serviceman. He’s worked with hundreds of local Seattle mesothelioma victims and has devoted the last decade of his career strictly to mesothelioma law. He’s been honored with the “Quiet Hero” award for his devotion to pro bono work. He last litigated many cases on behalf of Seattle and Spokane mesothelioma victims over his career.



Firm partner Vanessa Oslund has spent more than 10 years representing mesothelioma victims and fighting for their rights in Seattle and Spokane. One of her specialties is “take home” mesothelioma cases where workers unknowingly exposed loved ones with asbestos fibers brought home on their clothing and person.



For eight years, firm partner Chandler Udo has been hard at work in the Seattle courts fighting for asbestos victims’ rights. Chandler takes pride in litigating challenging mesothelioma claims at trial including product liability suits.
