NICHOLAS J. VOGELZANG
Attorney Nicholas Vogelzang has represented over two hundred families from across the United States from all different backgrounds for over 15 years.
His interest in that area of law was sparked by his father, Dr. Nicholas Vogelzang, who has also dedicated his career to the treatment of mesothelioma patients. Mr. Vogelzang and his father work closely together to ensure that his patients are treated with the same care when they become Vogelzang Law clients. Advocating for individuals who have been diagnosed with mesothelioma is the sole focus of his firm.
After only two years of being a licensed attorney, Mr. Vogelzang helped his client, Roby Whittington, obtain a 250 million dollar verdict against U.S. Steel. Mr. Whittington was diagnosed with mesothelioma after working in a steel mill his entire career. At trial it was proven to the jury that U.S. Steel failed to warn Mr. Whittington of the dangers of the asbestos that floated in the air of the steel mill. In addition to the Whittington verdict, he has obtained in excess of 300 million dollars in settlement for his clients.
