Overseeing thousands of Asbestos Cases

 

One look at Lynn Luker’s résumé and you’ll quickly discover a few things about her: She loves to learn, she loves to teach and she’s passionate about the practice of law.

In addition to raising five children, Luker has owned her own firm, Lynn Luker & Associates, LLC, since 1999.

“I had been at Adams and Reese for 18 years, starting as an associate in the maritime section, and was very happy there” Luker says. “In 1999 one of my clients acquired a company that triggered a conflict with another of the firm’s clients. We unfortunately had to terminate the relationship with my client. That client then asked me to start my own firm.”
