ASK LLP: Advocating for Wildfire Victims with Empathy and Expertise
Oct 16, 2023
In the wake of devastating wildfires that have affected countless families in Maui, the compassionate team at ASK LLP has gone beyond our legal expertise to provide hands-on support. We have been actively distributing essential items like water and goods to the displaced victims of the fire. This humanitarian effort reflects not just our commitment to legal excellence but also our profound empathy for those affected by such calamities.
Committed to Helping Fire Victims Recover Compensation
ASK LLP’s recent actions in Maui are just the tip of the iceberg when understanding our commitment to wildfire victims. For over four decades, ASK LLP has provided trusted legal services to victims of negligence. Our reputation as one of the few law firms with a significant leadership role in some of the nation’s largest wildfire disasters speaks volumes. Notably, we represented a leading city executive from Paradise, California, the epicenter of one of the state’s most devastating wildfires. Our involvement was pivotal in negotiating a $12 billion settlement for all wildfire victims.
The unfolding events in Maui, particularly the allegations against Hawaiian Electric, paint a picture of complexity and uncertainty. It’s believed that Hawaiian Electric could head towards bankruptcy. For victims, this means not just needing a lawyer familiar with wildfires but one deeply versed in mass torts bankruptcy – a rare legal specialty.
This is where ASK LLP’s expertise shines brightest. Our firm boasts both a mass tort practice specifically tailored to wildfires and a full-service bankruptcy practice. Our past engagements include representing clients in the PG&E wildfire bankruptcy, the Purdue Pharma bankruptcy due to the opioid crisis, and the Boy Scouts of America bankruptcy involving survivors of sexual abuse, with settlements ranging from hundreds of millions to billions.
Given the allegations against Hawaiian Electric and the inherent complexities of such cases, victims need a firm that possesses both empathy and expertise. ASK LLP’s humanitarian efforts in Maui showcase our dedication to the community. But our legal acumen, backed by a rich history of representing clients in wildfire-related cases, proves we are more than equipped to champion the rights of victims.
Wildfire victims have rights. The trauma of losing a home or a loved one is immeasurable, but the path to justice and compensation is navigable with the right legal partner. Whether it’s understanding the nuances of insurance claims, holding negligent parties accountable, or navigating the intricacies of bankruptcy filings by major corporations, victims need a comprehensive approach to secure their rights.
