Pogust & Braslow

Lawyer with expertise in pharmaceutical cases

The national law firm of Pogust & Braslow is dedicated to advocating for victims of pharmaceutical drugs. Pogust & Braslow, located just outside of Philadelphia, focuses its entire practice in the area of Pharmaceutical Litigation. Pogust & Braslow is a leader in the fight against a pharmaceutical industry that has deceived consumers, physicians and the government by marketing drugs for unproven uses and by failing to disclose all of the risks of their drugs. Pogust & Braslow tirelessly advocates on behalf of those injured by these dangerous drugs and, in doing so, strives not only to help our clients recover for the injuries to themselves and their families but also to make the public aware of the dangers associated with harmful drugs.

The Defense Foundation for Children

Organization raising awareness about psychiatric medicine and children

The Defense Foundation for Children (DFC) was created to help children in crisis.  We have been fortunate to establish a number of vital strategic relationships with some of the top experts and attorneys, media contacts, and other associates, who are truly passionate about all aspects of children caught in our judicial system.


A place to find experienced lawyers to handle your case

Choosing a lawyer to represent you can be a very, very difficult undertaking.  The lawyers who shout at you in the daytime TV ads come across with all of the professionalism of carnival hucksters.  The Yellow Pages only reveal who paid for the most advertising space.  The fact that your neighbor’s lawyer managed to get his traffic ticket dismissed hardly qualifies him or her for representation for you and your family.

JusticeSeekers just may be the answer to your quest to find an experienced, ethical trial lawyer.  JusticeSeekers is an association of trial lawyers across the country who have successfully represented individuals and families in cases that involve serious personal injuries and death.  This website began with two Houston lawyers–Andy Vickery and Paul Waldner.  As requests for representation were received from all over the country, they decided to include other lawyers with whom they had worked over the years.  The JusticeSeekers lawyers who appear on this website have tried–and won–landmark cases for citizens who have been injured by medical negligence, defective products, dangerous drugs and accidents in the workplace.  Their number includes trial lawyers who have taught in law schools, served as presidents of local trial lawyers associations and been elected to the most prestigious professional organizations in the U.S.
