“Over the course of my nine years as a defense attorney, I must have deposed well past a hundred men and women who were dying from mesothelioma or lung cancer. It was never easy to sit across from a dying man in an adversarial scenario. We used to rationalize it, but in the end, cross-examining a man literally during his final days, often in his own house, was a trying experience and never easy. I always made a point to go and shake his hand and talk to him on a personal level either before or after the deposition. I met so many plaintiffs who were good people and suffering immensely from a certainly terminal illness. I still think about a good number of them. I made the decision to stop defending those cases and joined McDonald Law Firm.”
