Bailey Glasser Welcomes Leading Asbestos Litigator Michael Robb


Expands Footprint and Opens Office in Pennsylvania

Washington, DC, August 17, 2020 – The national law firm Bailey Glasser LLP is proud to announce that leading asbestos attorney Michael “Mickey” Robb has joined the firm as a partner in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Michael has more than 20 years of experience handling cases for men and women who have contracted lung-related diseases including mesothelioma, lung cancer, esophageal cancer, and asbestosis.

“We are pleased to welcome Michael to Bailey Glasser,” said Brian Glasser, the firm’s CEO. “Michael is one of the preeminent lawyers in the country when it comes to asbestos-related litigation. He is a perfect fit to our firm while we work to hold companies and organizations accountable for harm they have caused to an untold number of people."

Michael has secured numerous trial verdicts and individual settlements for more than $90 million. Most recently, the Wall Street Journal reported on one of his cases where he represents a retired college professor who contracted mesothelioma after being exposed to asbestos-contaminated buildings at the Pennsylvania State University in State College, Pennsylvania.  

Michael’s extensive investigation in that case has revealed asbestos contamination in hundreds of buildings on the university’s main and satellite branch campuses.

“I’m excited to join Bailey Glasser and I am very impressed by the quality of its people and the growth of the firm,” he said. “I’m also excited to team up with them to fight on behalf of men and women who have contracted asbestos related diseases.”

Michael will practice out of Bailey Glasser’s new Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania office. “The Pennsylvania office gives us a platform to serve our clients there, and Michael’s joining the firm serves our strategic mission to grow our catastrophic injury practice with top-tier lawyers like Michael serving our clients,” said John Barrett, Bailey Glasser President.
