Lawyer of the Week: Mesothelioma Attorney Scott Frost

Scott Frost of Waters & Krause is our lawyer of the week for his tenacious work representing the family of Bill Saller who passed away from mesothelioma. When you think of a lawyer who never gives up you think of Scott . The case of Mr. Saller was first tried back in 2007. The jury found for the defense. The verdict was appealed as the Waters and Krause firm argued the trial judge gave the jury the wrong law to follow. The appellate court agreed and sent the case back for retrial.
On retrial , A California Jury awarded five million dollars in compensatory damages and 3.6 million dollars in punitive damages to the Saller family. The jury found the sole defendant at trial Crown Cork & Seal, 30 percent responsible for the compensatory award and 100 percent responsible for the punitive award.
What happened in the Saller case is typical of Scott’s commitment to his clients. Scott Frost is a partner at Waters, Kraus & Paul in the firm’s Los Angeles office.
