Greg Lisemby concentrates his practice in representing asbestos victims, particularly those diagnosed with malignant mesothelioma. He has over a decade of asbestos litigation experience and has represented numerous mesothelioma victims of various occupations and trades, including pipefitters, boilermakers, insulators, electricians, carpenters, drywallers, mechanics, machinists and veterans of the United States Armed Forces. Greg actively litigates cases filed in courts throughout the country and has represented individuals residing in over twenty states, including Alabama, Arkansas, California, Florida, Georgia, Hawaii, Illinois, Iowa, Louisiana, Minnesota, Montana, New Jersey, New York, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Washington, West Virginia and Wisconsin.
In 2010, Greg’s representation of an oilfield consultant stricken with mesothelioma resulted in the second largest toxic tort verdict of the year in Texas according to Top Ten Verdicts of 2010, a publication compiled by the verdict reporting service Verdict Search and distributed by Texas Lawyer newspaper. The case resulted in a jury finding against Union Carbide Corporation as a result of the plaintiff’s exposure to asbestos drilling mud additives.
