A Washington state appeals court recently upheld a record-setting $16.67 million jury verdict in favor of Sherrie Holdsworth. Mrs. Holdsworth is the widow of Kevan Holdsworth, who died in 2019 of mesothelioma caused by exposure to asbestos from products sold by Scapa Waycross, Inc. The verdict for Mrs. Holdsworth, who was represented by attorneys Luke Garrett and Tom Breen of Schroeter Goldmark & Bender, is the highest asbestos verdict ever in King County, and the second largest ever in Washington.
The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives (ATF) released its first gun trafficking report in more than two decades, putting in stark terms what we already know: the gun industry is the driving force behind the gun violence epidemic in this country.
Congratulations to SGB’s fourteen Super Lawyers, including four Rising Star attorneys and three Top 50 Women attorneys, who were each recognized by their peers as top-rated lawyers in Washington!
SGB attorneys Peter O’Neil, Tom Breen, and Sergio Garcidueñas-Sease helped Meike’s son, Niclas Foster, get to the bottom of what caused his mother’s death – an automotive fire caused by nesting rodents, coupled with the vehicle’s poorly executed design.
Regarded among his peers as an outstanding trial attorney and tenacious advocate, Tom relishes the challenge of helping his clients.
These Best Lawyers represent the dedication, expertise and experience every member brings to our team.
These best-of-the-best exemplify the heart, skill and experience every member brings to our team.
