SAN FRANCISCO, CA—Simmons Hanly Conroy is pleased to announce that firm partner Jennifer Alesio has been named to the Daily Journal’s “Top Plaintiff Lawyers 2023” list.
The “Top Plaintiff Lawyer” award acknowledges Alesio’s recent work in two major cases:
• Jessica Rose v. J-M Manufacturing Co. Inc. Alameda County – Alesio received an exceptionally favorable settlement in the case involving a client who developed mesothelioma and whose father exposed her as a child to asbestos from his work involving asbestos cement pipes.
• Putt v. Ford Motor Co. (In re LAOSD Asbestos Cases) – Alesio represented Arthur Putt, a career auto mechanic who was exposed to asbestos dust from brakes in the 1960s and 1970s, in a game-changing legal battle in Los Angeles against the Ford Motor Company. The case culminated in a jury verdict, holding Ford accountable by awarding Arthur $8.5 million in compensation and sending a strong message with an additional $24 million in punitive damages.
Based in the firm’s San Francisco office, Alesio focuses her practice on mesothelioma and asbestos-related cases, helping injured workers and their families secure the justice they deserve.
