Bergman Draper Oslund

We have just one practice area; we represent families struggling with mesothelioma. That is all we do. By devoting all of our attention and resources to this one challenging area, we are able to offer our clients the best quality legal representation

Firm Overview

Since 1995, the lawyers at Bergman Draper Oslund have been fighting to protect the interests of families facing the challenges of mesothelioma. We are a hardworking, talented and knowledgeable group of lawyers and professional staff who are enthusiastic about living in the Pacific Northwest and helping our mesothelioma clients here to obtain quality legal representation from people who care.

What gives Bergman Draper Oslund the competitive edge? Asbestos Law is All We Do. With decades of experience, we devote our practice solely to helping families coping with the tragedy of mesothelioma. For each family we represent, we create a small team of professionals who treat you with dignity and respect.

After years of investigating asbestos cases in the Northwest, we know the law and the courts and we've built a reputation. Our lawyers know every shipyard in the area, and the ships that were built and docked there too.

The firm's impressive record speaks for itself. The lawyers at Bergman Draper Oslund have been recognized repeatedly by their peers as Super Lawyers for many years running. For decades, even before the firm got its start, our lawyers had already been recognized as among the nation's leading mesothelioma attorneys, with courtroom victories spanning the nation and some of the largest jury verdicts in asbestos litigation.

We are a regional firm representing each of our clients on an individual basis and have collected over $700 million for our clients.

Our attorneys are also nationally known for their work in protecting the interests of asbestos victims in a number of bankruptcy proceedings involving some of the largest manufacturers of asbestos products.

The firm was the top negotiator for two record breaking settlements of their kind in the Northwest: a nationwide $5.1 billion settlement with Owens Corning, of which a record breaking $61 million was set aside for Puget Sound area claimants; and a $4.3 billion settlement with Halliburton, which allotted $30 million for asbestos claimants in our region.

In addition, we've served on the creditors' committees in the Owens Corning; Dresser/Halliburton; AC& S; GAF; A.P. Green; THAN; ARTRA; Kaiser Aluminum; and E.J. Bartells bankruptcies. We currently serve on the Trust Advisory Committee of the Owens Corning, Kaiser Aluminum, Combustion Engineering, ARTRA, and AC&S trusts which administer over $10 billion in assets on behalf of asbestos victims.

The lawyers of Bergman Draper Oslund are devoted to obtaining fair compensation for the firm's clients, to pursuing their cases with zeal and passion, and to forming relationships with their clients that are based on mutual trust, respect, and compassion.
