Who is Dennis Herron & Associates?

Since 1991, Dennis Herron & Associates have been seeking justice for clients and winning significant settlements. Our experience with Mesothelioma cases, Personal injury, Lead Paint poisoning can be used to win your case. The key to our success is that we are passionate about achieving justice for our clients.

Winning cases and settling claims are important. Too many guilty parties, whether they are a landlord, manufacturer, or other guilty individual, will continue to put others at risk unless they are stopped by legal action. Even if you think your case is too little or late to win damages from a corporation, remember, you are not alone. There are likely other people, perhaps hundreds or thousands who are in the same situation you are in. Their case can help support your case and your case may be the single claim that brings down a repeat offender.

Press Release – First Plaintiff Jury Verdict in WNY Lead Poisoning Case-Revised for Dennis Lead Poisoning Case Favors Plaintiff

A 23-year-old Rochester woman, left with a learning disability after being exposed to lead as a child, will receive some compensation for her injuries. A jury Wednesday awarded Ashley Hicks $221,000 for economic loss from the neurological effects that lead poisoning will have on her capacity for future earnings.

“What you find, at least here in Rochester, it’s not one landlord poisoning one child, one time,” Herron said, echoing others who say landlords, by and large, correct problems as they arise. “It’s professional landlords with multiple properties, multiple violations, multiple families.”

“Have we had cases that have gone in excess of seven figures? Absolutely,” Herron said. “You are talking about a brain-damaged child.

“It is not meant to be a windfall, where they never have to work another day in their lives. It is meant for them to catch up.”
