Gerald Williams practices toxic tort and complex personal injury law in addition to handling consumer protection, civil rights, employment, police litigation and class actions.
“We established our firm as one that clients and other attorneys would turn to when they need assistance with complex litigation involving infractions or injuries in the workplace, the environment, or violations of their civil rights.”
Williams was an associate at a Philadelphia law firm before starting his own firm in 1983. In 1984, he and Mark Cuker became partners.
“Without civil rights, there are no other rights.”
Williams has won verdicts and settlements for plaintiffs in civil rights and environmental tort cases in many courts, including Merry v. Westinghouse, which established medical monitoring as a remedy under Pennsylvania common law, and Ambrogi v. Gould, the first case to hold medical monitoring available under Pennsylvania’s Hazardous Sites Cleanup Act.
“It’s now commonplace, but we were among the first to really delve deeply into these matters, using experts and fashioning remedies that involved a lot of discovery, research, time and effort working directly with victims and communities.
