Goldberg, Persky & White P.C.

Your Trusted Michigan Talcum Powder Lawyer


If you or a loved one has been diagnosed with ovarian cancer or mesothelioma following the use of talc-based baby powder, the Michigan Talcum Powder Lawyers at Goldberg, Persky & White P.C. are here to provide you with experienced and compassionate legal support. We are actively evaluating cases involving women who have developed ovarian cancer as a result of using talcum powder on their genital area, including undergarments, tampons, and sanitary napkins.

Johnson & Johnson (J&J), a prominent health product company, is currently facing a staggering 1200 pending lawsuits that claim a direct link between their talcum powder products and cancer in numerous women. As evidence against J&J continues to accumulate, many Michigan women and their families may have unknowingly suffered severe harm from these hazardous products.
Talc, the primary ingredient in talcum powder, has been a cause for concern for decades, with evidence of its potential dangers dating back over fifty years. While talc in its natural state contains asbestos and is recognized as carcinogenic, cosmetic and healthcare products have shifted to asbestos-free talc since the 1970s. Despite this transition, more than 20 research studies have pointed to a significant connection between the use of talc-based powders and the development of ovarian cancer as well as mesothelioma.
In the United States, approximately 25,000 women are diagnosed with ovarian cancer annually, leading to 15,000 deaths. Some experts now estimate that up to 10% of all ovarian cancer cases in the United States may be linked to prolonged exposure to talc or powder products.
If you or a loved one has been affected by talcum powder-related health issues, contact a trusted Michigan talcum powder lawyer to explore your legal options.

    Goldberg, Persky & White Testimonials

    Goldberg, Persky & White P.C. Client

    “It has been a pleasure working with you. You handled my father’s case very professionally and, considering the emotional aspects, very personally. Over a year ago, prior to the diagnosis, my father handed me a page torn from the Yellow Pages showing the ad for Goldberg, Persky & White. He told me that Goldberg, Persky was the company that I should contact if he gets sick. As usual, he gave me good advice.”

    2017 Goldberg, Persky & White P.C. Client

    “When my husband and I had our first meeting with an Attorney from your office I had no idea of the excellent service that I was about to receive. It has been 12 years since my Husband died and thanks to your firm I have been able to live a comfortable life. Six years ago I found that I no longer could continue to take care of my home, that is when I moved to Calif to be near my youngest son. I moved into a 55+ Village, a very unusual one with over 18000 residents, 210 clubs and organizations, so I am able to keep quite active.”
