Lanier Law Firm Expands Los Angeles Office With Latest Additions

LOS ANGELES - The Lanier Law Firm is expanding the firm's Toxic Exposure and Asbestos practice and adding two attorneys to the firm's recently expanded Los Angeles office.

Trey Jones and Alexandra Shef have joined the firm in Los Angeles, where they will focus on mesothelioma and asbestos exposure litigation. Jones will lead the firm's Los Angeles asbestos practice group.

Jones and Shef previously practiced with Simon, Eddins & Greenstone in Long Beach, Calif. They join nationally recognized products liability attorney Dana Taschner, who has led The Lanier Law Firm's Los Angeles office since 2009.

The firm also has launched a new Web site dedicated to helping mesothelioma victims and educating the public about the everyday dangers of asbestos exposure. The new Web site,, is packed with up-to-date information and insights gained by The Lanier Law Firm's attorneys during more than 20 years of representing workers and their families in cases involving mesothelioma and exposure to asbestos.

Firm founder Mark Lanier is one of the country's leading trial lawyers, and a veteran of many courtroom battles on behalf of mesothelioma victims who were exposed to asbestos at work or at home. He says the firm plans to expand its work in Southern California based in part on the increasing number of mesothelioma cases among family members of those who work around asbestos.

Accomplished attorney Patrick Haines leads The Lanier Law Firm's Toxic Exposure and Asbestos Practice Group, one of the country's largest with 25 lawyers handling more than 1,000 pending asbestos claims in courts across the United States. He says is a valuable health resource for anyone.
