Ovarian Cancer Talc Cases
Johnson & Johnson ("J & J") has known for decades that its baby powder, which is simply talc powder and perfume, is carcinogenic and substantially increases the risk of ovarian cancer. Over 21 scientific studies have confirmed this link and J & J has admitted under oath of being aware of these studies.

Foodborne Illness Cases
Foodborne pathogens kill 1000s of Americans each year. "Bad bugs" like Listeria, E. coli, and Campylobacter cause devastating and lasting injuries.
Besides the usual breach of contract recoveries, business tort claims and similar remedies are often available for commercial disputes. Business torts include misrepresentation and fraud, breach of fiduciary duty, unfair and deceptive trade practices, Civil RICO and conspiracy, and tortious interference with contract and prospective business relationships. Remedies for such commercial misconduct may include punitive damages or the attorneys’ fees incurred by the victim of such improper business practices. The Cheeley Law Group attorneys have all litigated these claims, and Keith Pittman has taught law school seminars about them for more than 10 years.
General torts include the areas of the law where persons injured by others have the ability to recover for those injuries from the wrongdoer, despite the fact that their particular injury may not be addressed by the categories of torts with which so many of us are familiar (like medical malpractice, road wreck cases, etc.). General torts encompass many wrongs where a person’s private rights have been violated and the law provides a remedy.
Medical Malpractice Cases
As one of our recent Blogs shows, doctors often do more harm than good. Medical malpractice is a genuine crisis in the medical community. The Cheeley Law Group lawyers have handled such cases for decades, and have the right experience to evaluate your case, find the right experts, and prosecute your case at trial.
Professional liability, or what is often called malpractice, addresses the responsibility of various professions for injuries caused by their practitioners. Though medical malpractice is considered a singular area of the law, any professional may be liable for injuries arising from his or her failure to act in the manner appropriate for a particular profession. The Cheeley Group lawyers are ready to counsel those who have encountered negligent professionals, including accountants, architects, attorneys, dentists, and engineers.
