Asbestos/Toxic Tort

Collins Einhorn Farrell PC was one of the first in the Detroit metro region to successfully defend clients in the asbestos/toxic and environmental field in the early days of toxic tort litigation. In the decades since, we have been called upon to represent hundreds of clients in Michigan and throughout the country.

Our attorneys are members of the National Coordinating Counsel team for several clients in asbestos litigation, which includes the management of thousands of cases across the country. Our office is one of the medical coordinating offices for asbestos cases in Michigan and is a member of the Wayne County Circuit Court Steering Committee for Asbestos Litigation.
