Michael Throneberry

Edwardsville, Illinois

Michael Throneberry began his practice at a large St. Louis firm focusing on commercial litigation before he shifted his focus on advocating for mesothelioma and asbestos cancer victims. The focus of his practice changed because of the aftermath of his father-in-law’s diagnosis and brave but ultimately losing battle with mesothelioma. Since 2003, Mr. Throneberry has leveraged his legal skills, his energy and the full resources of his law firm in aggressive pursuit of compensation for mesothelioma and asbestos cancer victims. At The Gori Law Firm, Mr. Throneberry will continue his work in the area of asbestos litigation.

Mr. Throneberry graduated from Purdue University with a degree in Civil Engineering. He served as an engineer with the United States Army, Corps of Engineers and graduated with a Master of Science in Environmental Engineering from Marshall University. He attended law school at Washington University in St. Louis and graduated with a J.D.
