The Gori Law Firm Celebrates 10 Years in Operation: Looks Back on Firm’s Growth and Community Impact
EDWARDSVILLE, ILL., June 28, 2018 The Gori Law Firm, the nation’s #1 filer of asbestos-related mesothelioma and lung cancer cases in the United States, celebrates its 10 th anniversary this month. Located in Edwardsville, Ill., The Gori Law Firm has seen significant growth in its 10 years in operation, expanding to six offices in Illinois, one in Missouri and satellite offices in Los Angeles, New Orleans, Orlando, Washington, D.C. and New York City. With nearly 200 employees, including 45 attorneys and approximately 150 support staff members, the firm has recovered more than $4 billion in settlements for clients across the country.
According to Randy Gori, founding partner of The Gori Law Firm, “I knew when I decided to start the firm with Barry Julian that I wanted to create an atmosphere for growth, which meant treating my employees and clients like family. This approach has resulted in happy clients and staff, which is one of the core reasons we have been so successful. People like to feel cared for and respected and as a team we certainly respect our clients, the struggle they are going through and have the resolve needed to get them the financial compensation they deserve for the life-threatening disease they are facing.”
The Gori Law Firm has also expanded its practice areas to include personal injury, commercial litigation, medical malpractice, pharmaceutical litigation and real estate law. Having recently acquired two local law firms – John Hopkins & Associates Law in Alton and Flannigan Law Firm in Edwardsville – the firm is stronger than ever in its practice and capabilities.
“We will continue to look for ways to diversify our practice and continue as one of the largest, privately-owned employers in the community. Looking forward we will also continue our commitment to giving back to local charities and causes that need help from the private sector. We currently support more than 150 different organizations and have given more than $3 million in donations and sponsorships,” added Gori.
In addition to the impact the law firm has on the local community, the firm also
sponsors many community-wide and national events to help raise money for the Mesothelioma Applied Research Foundation (MARF). One Edwardsville, Ill. based event, Oktoberfest, has successfully raised thousands of dollars each year for the organization. Additionally, the sale of MARF armbands by The Gori Law Firm continues to support and raise funds for the organization, making strides to contribute to MARF’s efforts.
The Gori Law Firm was formed in 2008 by Randy Gori and Barry Julian and since has recovered more than $4 billion in compensation for those suffering as a result of asbestos exposure. Serving clients throughout the United States, the firm has offices in Edwardsville, Ill., St. Louis, New York, Los Angeles, New Orleans, Washington, D.C. and Orlando.
