Town Hall Meeting to Be Held on Wednesday, May 20, 2009 to Educate and Empower Garfield Residents on Medical and Legal Issues Related to Chromium Contamination
Date:5/18/2009

All Garfield Residents Invited to VFW from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m.

GARFIELD, N.J., May 18 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The invasive, yet necessary, sample collection and testing currently taking place in homes, businesses and properties in Garfield, New Jersey, serves as a reminder to the city's residents - and others across the country - that health hazards and property damage resulting from corporate environmental contamination can be catastrophic. On Wednesday, May 20, 2009, from 7:00 - 9:00 p.m. at the VFW, Garfield residents have the opportunity to join hosts Jon L. Gelman and Walter Slomienski, Jr., to learn more about the dangers of chromium exposure, potential legal actions and rights and take advantage of an open forum discussion.

The two New Jersey law firms are hosting the meeting to provide those affected by the contamination investigation with a chance to gather in an engaging environment that will educate the attendees about the many medical and legal issues related to chromium contamination.

  • Environmental and occupational medicine specialist Dr. Michael Gochfeld, Ph.D., will speak in detail about the health hazards of chromium exposure.

  • The attorneys, along with their co-counsel, environmental trial lawyers Fidelma Fitzpatrick (DC, MA, NY, RI) and Jon Orent (MA, RI, WI) of Motley Rice LLC, will share information on legal rights as related to personal injury and economic property loss due to environmental contamination.

  • Refreshments will be provided.

"Although Garfield has a long industrial history, these residents deserve better," said Motley Rice member attorney Fidelma Fitzpatrick. "Corporations shouldn't be allowed to walk away from problems they create, especially in the economic environment that individuals and governmental entities are currently facing."

If you cannot attend the meeting but would like to learn more about the experts or discuss chromium contamination concerns, contact attorney Jon L. Gelman (DC, OH, NJ, NY, NE) or Walter M. Slomienski Jr. (NJ) at +1 800.868.0020 or visit www.garfieldcontamination.com.
