n 1984, Brookman, Rosenberg, Brown & Sandler (BRBS) was formed by founding partners Melvin Brookman, Howell K. Rosenberg, Laurence H. Brown, and Cary L. Sandler as a full-service law firm with a special emphasis on injuries caused by exposure to asbestos. Our mission is to help people seriously injured through the negligence or willful misconduct of others. While we are located in Philadelphia, we also consider ourselves to be a New Jersey asbestos law firm. Mesothelioma often takes between 20 and 50 years to be diagnosed, long after the exposure to asbestos is over. New Jersey ranks eighth in the country for diagnosed mesothelioma cases.
