Peter Melaragno currently handles and coordinates the defense of several clients involved in Florida's statewide asbestos litigation as well as the Federal Multi-District Asbestos Litigation in the Eastern District of Pennsylvania. He manages several hundred asbestos cases from receipt of complaint to case resolution. He has extensive experience with deposing asbestos plaintiffs, fact witnesses and expert witnesses, and has also participated in trial of asbestos cases.

Practice Focus

Peter focuses his practice on toxic tort litigation. He represents manufacturers, distributors, insurers and retailers in the defense of claims that arise from alleged exposure to hazardous materials, including asbestos, silica, benzene, mold, and formaldehyde. Peter’s experience enables him to effectively litigate high-exposure cases involving personal injury and wrongful death claims based on theories of strict product liability and negligent failure to warn.
