USS Battleships

Military Battleship Battleships were used to attain command of the sea and played an important role in early US military conflicts from 1875 up until WWII. As technology advanced significantly during WWII and we began to rely more heavily on air power and guided missiles, the heavily armed battleships were no longer seen as an efficient way to wage warfare. The last battleships were removed from the Naval Vessel Registry in 2006. While these battleships played an important role in our military history many are laden with asbestos containing products, which have been known to cause serious diseases such as mesothelioma. Mesothelioma is a rare cancer affecting the lining of the lungs and other vital organs; unfortunately many veterans were exposed to the materials during their duty on these ships.

"Just wanted you to understand how very thankful we are for everything you are doing for us. We haven't had anyone help us and look out for us like you have. It takes a very special person to do what you are doing, My father said just before he died that there would be someone that would come into my life to help me with his affairs. At that time I didn't understand what he was trying to say, but now I do. Again, thank you very much." Richard A Bennett, Client
