Mesothelioma Attorneys, Johnson Law Group, Announce New Internet Initiative

HOUSTON, TX -- (MARKET WIRE) -- February 1, 2007 -- Mesothelioma attorney Nick Johnson, Johnson Law Group principal, announced today the development of a new internet service to aid those seeking more information on mesothelioma, a deadly cancer caused by ingesting or breathing in loose asbestos fibers.

The site,, is designed as a network for medical and legal professionals seeking first hand information from other experts. The goal of the new site is to collect regular information and stories from doctors, lawyers and patients so that there can be greater communication between the three groups.

"Asbestos related lung cancer or mesothelioma is a horrible thing to discover," said Johnson. "We've started this new outreach to both other mesothelioma lawyers and doctors specializing in the diagnosis and treatment of mesothelioma in order to provide more information on both the medical and legal fronts."

Medical and legal professionals agree that the asbestos industry concealed the research results from asbestos tests as far back as the turn of the century. Those tests proved conclusively the direct link between asbestos fibers and mesothelioma. It is this area of common ground from which Johnson believes the two industries can enhance the lines of communication between two groups who are normally incommunicado on such topics.

"Our hope," said Johnson, "is to help break down the barriers between the legal and medical communities on this issue."

The Johnson Law Group, headquartered in Houston, Texas, concentrates in the areas of Mesothelioma, Fen-Phen and Paxil pharmaceutical cases, Nursing Home Abuse and Rollover/Car Accidents in more than 20 U.S. states and Mexico. Johnson is known as one of the top mesothelioma cancer lawyers in Texas and Louisiana, (see among other states. More information can be found at
