Attorney Ross Stomel, Shrader & Associates, LLP, to Discuss Premises Liability at 15th Annual National Asbestos Litigation Conference, Chicago

HOUSTON, TX--(Marketwire - Aug 9, 2012) -   Ross Stomel, Partner, Shrader & Associates, and well-known advocate on behalf of mesothelioma victims -- -- will address the 15th Annual National Asbestos Litigation Conference, Chicago, October 18-19, 2012.

Attorney Stomel, with co-presenter Peggy Byrne, Swanson, Martin & Bell, LLP, will discuss and analyze current trends in premises liability and environmental/neighborhood exposure clams.

The theme of the annual asbestos litigation conference is Emerging Issues for the Most Active Jurisdictions in 2012. Focus of concern is a variety of legislative and litigation issues in California, Florida, New York, New York City and Pennsylvania.

Mesothelioma is a fatal cancer caused by exposure to asbestos. The Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report (MMWR) series prepared by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), states that during 1999-2005, a total of 18,068 malignant mesothelioma deaths were reported in the United States. This represents approximately 2,000 to 3,000 cases annually, continuing to affect construction workers, US Navy veterans and many others exposed to asbestos before it was partially banned in the early 1990s. Because the disease does not manifest itself for years after exposure, mesothelioma will continue to claim victims for the foreseeable future.

Attorney Stomel holds a bachelor's degree from University of Texas at Austin and a law degree from South Texas College of Law where he graduated cum laude and served as Assistant Editor-in-Chief of South Texas Law Review.

He is licensed to practice in all Texas State Courts, The United States District Court for the Southern District of Texas, and The United States District Court for the Eastern District of Texas. Attorney Stomel is also a member of the State Bar of Texas, Houston and American Bar Associations, Texas Trial Lawyers Association, and the American Association for Justice.
