Houston Benzene Exposure Attorney
The Provost Umphrey Law Firm was founded in Beaumont, near the heart of the Southeast Texas petrochemical industry, in 1969. Our trial lawyers made an early commitment to representation of workers exposed to chemical hazards, and our firm continues to actively uphold that commitment today. We do so on a nationwide basis, helping maritime workers, union workers and other hardworking Americans seek compensation for serious injuries and illnesses caused by toxic chemicals and corporate negligence.
