Erin Brockovich

One of my favorite movies about lawyers or legal matters is the movie Erin Brockovich. Of course the main actress is Julia Roberts which adds to the movie’s glamour. What I like about the story is the tenacity of Erin in finding out the truth. In the movie she investigated a suspicious real estate case involving the Pacific Gas & Electric Company. What she discovers is that the company is trying quietly to buy land that was contaminated by hexavalent chromium, a deadly toxic waste that the company is improperly and illegally dumping and, in turn, poisoning the residents in the area. As she digs deeper, Erin finds herself leading point in a series of events that would involve her law firm in one of the biggest class action lawsuits in American history against a multi-billion dollar corporation.

There are many class actions suits that has been successful and brought some form of reliefs to the victims. In cases where one is exposed to asbestos and suffers from Mesothelioma Disease, that person should consider looking for Mesothelioma Lawyer. How would you know that the Mesothelioma Attorney is a good one and really genuine to fight for your rights? Well, I’m reminded of a scene in the movie Erin Brockovich where a lady lawyer asked Erin about the client’s telephone numbers. Erin answered correctly a few of her clients’ contact numbers.

Hmm, I think I’ll watch the movie again when I have the time.
