Justin Shrader, Advocate for Mesothelioma Victims, to Address National Asbestos Conference, "Litigation and Trial of MDL Asbestos Claims in Federal Court," February 24-25, 2011, Miami, FL

HOUSTON, TX and MIAMI, FL--(Marketwire - February 17, 2011) - Justin Shrader, Managing Partner, Shrader & Associates, LLP -- -- will join a nationally-recognized, distinguished panel of asbestos attorneys at the Harris Martin Publishing's National Asbestos Conference "Litigation and Trial of MDL Asbestos Claims in Federal Court," Feb. 24 - 25, 2011 at the Fontainebleau, Miami, Fla.

Mr. Shrader, long-time, successful litigator specializing in mesothelioma cases, will focus on "Getting Past the Gatekeeper: Clearing Daubert Hurdles with Your Asbestos Experts." 

According to Justin Shrader, "Daubert v. Merrel Dow was the seminal case articulating the standard for evaluating the credibility, and ultimately, the admissibility of expert testimony in federal court. The Supreme Court stated in its ruling that the trial judge is to serve as 'gatekeeper' of the evidence, with the goal that only expert testimony derived from sound 'scientific methodology' be presented to a jury." 

The panel will examine and discuss Finding and Vetting Reliable and Relevant Experts; Preparing and Deposing Experts in Anticipation of Daubert Challenges; Defeating Daubert Challenges and Getting Your Expert's Opinions Into Evidence. 

Raised in Houston, Texas, Justin did his undergraduate studies at the University of Texas and his legal education at Baylor University School of Law.

Mr. Shrader's legal career is noted for his dedication to thousands of asbestos victims for whom he has worked tirelessly -- and successfully -- providing the highest professional and ethical standards of legal representation in this intensely competitive environment.

With the opportunity to return to his hometown of Houston, Justin was able to realize his long held desire to join his father, Bill, in a practice devoted to representing a limited number of asbestos victims so that they could get to know clients personally, treating them as members of the family. Together, they launched Shrader & Associates, LLP concentrating on plaintiff's civil litigation, representing families and victims harmed by asbestos and other hazardous products and materials. Representing victims, families and communities in 33 states, Shrader & Associates, LLP has posted trial verdicts and settlements totaling over 100 million dollars.
