Vin Greene works on behalf of victims of lead poisoning and asbestos-related diseases. He represents children and families poisoned by exposure to lead paint and pigments in trials, negotiations and settlements.

Currently, Vin represents workers and families suffering from mesothelioma and other asbestos-related diseases as a result of occupational, environmental or household exposure to asbestos.
